Julia Bickerstaff

I'm a business author, writer, speaker, thinker, mentor, adviser and coach. I create and curate business recipes and I'm the founder of The Business Bakery.

So what's The Business Bakery? Well imagine taking the practical tools of Weightwatchers, combining it with the do-ability of Nigella Lawson and making it about business rather than food. That's The Business Bakery. It's an online compendium of business recipes designed and written especially for women who want to turn their kitchen-table venture into a profitable little business. It's business education, bite sized.

When I'm not baking businesses I facilitate strategic planning sessions for medium sized businesses, 'sit' on advisory boards, write for a number of digital publications (including Smartcompany and Flying Solo), appear regularly on TV shows such as Channel 7's Kochies Business Builders and ABCs news 24, and give keynote talks on subjects such as pricing and profitability for small businesses

In a previous life I was a partner at global advisory firm Deloitte. I'm an economist and a chartered accountant, and am Mum to four fabulous little munchkins.
