Colleen Callander is the former, long-time CEO of Sportsgirl.
Geelong born and raised, Colleen was brought up in a hardworking business-focused family having her first taste of retail at the age of 16. Unbeknown to her at the time, this summer job would be the start of a retail career spanning over 30 years.
Colleen has a wealth of knowledge and a proven track record in building brands, creating a winning culture, building an environment that allows people to be inspired and empowered and is now sharing not only the past 13 years experience as a CEO but the past 30 years of her retail career.
Colleen is an inspiration to women of all generations and wants to encourage women globally to believe in themselves, their ability, share their voice, take action and bring equality into boardrooms, organisations, communities and even into the home. She wants women to believe in the power within and that it is possible to become the leader they always wanted to be in business and in life and together create a new era of leadership and change the rules. Colleen has just launched her mentor me program @mentorme_women which is aimed at making mentoring accessible and affordable for all women.
