Kylie Clarke has a background of over 15+ years in events, communications and membership at not-for-profit medical college The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR), in April 2019 Kylie left her well-paid, well-respected, and well-loved job, diving headfirst into the world of small business, creating event-tech and event management consultancy start up Evise with her business partner. Determined and with unwavering passion, and a fire to succeed, she celebrated her 1-year anniversary as a bone fide business owner amidst a global pandemic.
Kylie holds a Diploma of Event Management, a Certificate III in Business Administration and a Professional Certificate in Food and Nutritional Coaching. Having walked the walk and vast years of experience, she brings to the table a mature, pragmatic, and personal approach, along with a fantastic sense of humour and authentic, team-orientated leadership.
Kylie’s career aspiration is to give back to the system that gave her the opportunity by empowering, growing, and mentoring other women. She plans to become an ambassador for all other women to follow their heart, follow their true calling and follow their passion so that they too can make a difference in the world.
As a self-confessed adrenaline junkie and a bit of a petrol head, Kylie loves anything fast and motorised. She recently obtained her motorcycle L’s, bought herself a motorbike she aptly named ‘Riccardo’ (after Australia F1 driver Daniel Riccardo) and is learning to ride. When she is not in a helmet and leathers, her other passions include musical theatre and cooking.
Kylie’s pitch, like many of the others submitted, moved and inspired our panel of judges, as well as invoking laughter. She spoke about the difference between a job and a career, describing a job as “just over broke” and the strength and courage it took for her to move from her job to “embark on a career.” Kylie reflects the BWA values of collaboration and collective, and considers it a life goal to “become an ambassador for all other women to follow their heart, follow their true calling and follow their passion, so that they too can make a difference in this world.” We look forward to following Kylie on her next big adventure, cheering for her in all her endeavours.
