Elizabeth Redfern was elected to the Ready Set board in August 2021 as Volunteer Representative.
Originally from the UK, Elizabeth moved to Australia from Hong Kong in October 2016 and commenced volunteering with Ready Set in 2017. She has over twenty years’ experience in the fields of publishing, marketing and communications, and business development. While in Hong Kong, she headed the Asia-Pacific marketing and communications teams for U.S. based law firms. She also established a boutique consultancy which provided bespoke marketing and PR services to SMEs and multinational companies in Asia.
Drawing on her corporate experience, Elizabeth has worked as an executive coach for the past ten years. Her work crosses industries, geographies and hierarchies and includes corporate and individual clients from professional services, media/PR, human resources, and education. She coaches on a wide variety of areas including career and leadership development, work-life choices and transitions including parental coaching, and communication and presentation. She has a special interest in helping high potential leaders, particularly women, build their personal brand and develop their executive presence and skills to board level. She is passionate about helping her clients change and transform to reach their fullest potential.
She currently volunteers at Ready Set as both a dresser and career coach and loves helping people restart their work journey. Along with her professional expertise, Elizabeth will bring the voice of the volunteers to the board, helping ensure strong connectivity between the volunteer base and the strategic decisions made by the board.
