Jemimah’s career is jam-packed with a wide range of experiences that have paved the way for her entrepreneurial journey. From working for the Australian Federal Police (AFP) for over a decade as a criminal intelligence analyst and working in Manhattan, South East Asia and all around Australia, in addition to leading the Canberra business networking scene and enjoying life as an improviser and comedian.
Despite three Degrees and a Master’s spanning security, criminology and fraud investigation, a wake-up call came while on a working holiday in Manhattan after a chance encounter with a jewellery designer. Jemimah was invited into the jeweller’s workshop and it was there that her passion for jewellery design was set alight. After returning to Australia, she signed up for another chapter of education, this time in silversmithing and so her jewellery business, Tangs Design, was born.
Jemimah soon left law enforcement to pursue her entrepreneurial endeavours which included co-hosting The Business Experiment podcast, creating thought leadership around what it takes to really be in business and interviewing some of the world’s most influential entrepreneurs.
Jemimah speaks honestly about what it takes to build successful businesses and is passionate about giving business owners the tools they need to create a holistic approach to entrepreneurship including mental health and self-care. Jemimah is also a speaker for beyondblue, an impact partner for Thankyou. and is on the board of The Hope Project.
A multi-talented entrepreneur, Jemimah work across multiple areas as a business consultant, mentor, speaker and soon-to-be author. She is incredibly passionate about helping businesses and entrepreneurs to succeed in their endeavours.
