Our Guest Speaker for the August Entrepreneurial Social is Maree Gooch.
Maree Gooch is one of WA’s most engaging and successful entrepreneurs and management consultants with more than three decades of experience spanning business and government.
Maree is the founder and Principal of Belay Consulting – aptly names because she does for business what a belay does for rockclimbers – hoists you up to the top so you can see the possibilities and a bigger picture and achieve the greatest goals.
Her strengths are in Business Strategy, Business Transformation and Financial Management for small and medium sized businesses across multiple industries and government. Maree facilitates strategic planning and business development either in-house for entrepreneurs and small to medium business or through industry workshops for business planning and growth, change management and future planning and turnaround strategies.
Maree co-founded Value Creators in December 2018, providing for ideas and dreams to become reality through creative thinking and systematic processes to make it all happen.
Value Creators values aligns strongly with E5.0 and Society 5.0 ethos, delivering programs across three areas - people, business and industry. The programs underlying message is about managing change for good and to create the future you want, not just praying for change, ensuring people and business flourish. The programs are based on proven and powerful concepts including understanding and playing to your strengths, communication, strategy and business processes and adapting them to achieve excellence in life and work.
- Her Impact:
- Maree gives much of her time generously for philanthropic pursuits, especially regional and rural initiatives and has over the years mentored many students through the UWA Career Link and Business School, the Grow Zone Program and more recently the AgTech Business Growth Mentoring Program.

What are Entrepreneur Socials?
Entrepreneur Socials are monthly networking events for entrepreneurs to engage and connect with purpose-driven individuals who value collaboration and problem-solving. Our mission is to help achieve the United Nations Global Goals by creating a space for impact-driven entrepreneurs to connect to the right knowledge, network and opportunities.
Entrepreneur Social Speakers are social entrepreneurs who are impact driven and are doing something to make a difference in the world. They have found a way to create ongoing flow towards profit and purpose. They also have a story worth telling because they are impacting one or more of the 17 Global Goals and they are on an entrepreneurial journey to make this happen.
The event is for anyone who is interested in entrepreneurship and social impact and would like to network in a relaxed social environment with other locally grown professionals and business owners, to share success stories, challenges faced and discuss the strategies that will propel us forward.
