Dream Job Ready Episode 31: Michelle Battersby (Chief Marketing Officer, Keep it Cleaner). After completing her Bachelor of Arts and Masters of Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations, Michelle worked through multiple HR roles for finance companies Citi, UBS and PWC in her first 3 years out of university. While she enjoyed the roles and the companies she was working with, she knew there was something else out there that she'd be better at... Michelle opened herself to a career move and thanks to a friend got an intro to Whitney Wolfe Herd - Founder and CEO of dating app, Bumble. The two met, connected and Michelle was hired as Country Lead, the first person hired at Bumble in Australia. There she was responsible for building out the local team, localising messaging, brand direction and officially launching Bumble into the Australian market. She progressed internally and promoted to Director of APAC Marketing in 2019, where she helped launch the business in New Zealand, Philippines and Hong Kong. Three years into the role, Michelle got that "what's next?" feeling again though and decided to seek out a position a little closer to her original love (sport), with that opportunity coming with Keep it Cleaner - the online fitness platform and brainchild of models Steph Claire Smith and Laura Henshaw.

Michelle Battersby - businesswoman of the year or decade or forever (in my view anyway)

We Are The Real Ones

Michelle Battersby. A literal powerhouse of a human. One of the hardest working people I know, intelligent and astute to the nth degree, a business woman who has a logical, pragmatic and highly considered approach to work and life, and well most things. Headhunted to helm the Australian arm of Bumble, Michelle took the biggest risk of her life when she left her HR job in corporate finance not knowing what was ahead, if the role was legitimate or if she was making a mistake. It paid off of course and by the end of that gamble Michelle grew the brand in Australia to 3 million users and launched Bumble in 4 other countries. If it wasn’t already evident, Michelle is brave and courageous and she left Bumble on a high to take on her current role as the Chief Marketing Officer of Keep it Cleaner here in Melbourne (lucky me!). Michelle is a woman who empowers other women, she is incredibly generous with her time and advice to other women in business and entrepreneurs and has become somewhat of an unofficial mentor to many, including me! Enjoy her insights and advice in today’s podcast where we talk about supporting other women, confidence vs self-doubt, anxiety, competing (with yourself) and the expectation of others, high risk for high reward and everything in between.
