- The WiRE Showcase Video Series -
A Celebration of Remarkable Rural, Regional and Remote Women Entrepreneurs


The main objective of the WiRE Showcase Series is to celebrate exceptional rural, regional and remote entrepreneurial women and to provide a resource that other women can use in their entrepreneurial journeys. Some of the women showcased here are business women, others are entrepreneurial leaders in their communities who make a significant difference to their communities and regions, and some of them are both.  

The video interviews were conducted by Retha Wiesner, Program Director of the WiRE Program, via Zoom, and since these interviewees reside mostly in rural and remote Queensland, the quality of internet connection wasn't optimal for most of the interviews. However, internet connection problems have never stopped women in rural, regional and remote Queensland to progress worthwhile activities and share their valuable ideas. This Showcase Series is just one example! 

The WiRE Program would like to sincerely thank the interviewees for their time and the wonderful advice shared in these interviews. Below you will find concise written case studies and video interviews where they share their advice and lessons learned during their entrepreneurial journeys.

(This page is a work in progress with more case studies to add as the WiRE program progresses.) 

The 2017 and 2018 WiRE Showcase Series’ was funded by the Australian Government through the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science.
