Sally Coldrick - Founder and Director

Often described as bringing an abundance of energy and drive to everything she does, Sally Coldrick is a visionary leader. She helps businesses articulate their vision and think differently while also getting them to rapidly move along the path to greater success. She looks at problems through a different lens with an entrepreneurial mindset.

[Up & Grow] is a dynamic experiment inspired by the dream to provide businesses with the strategic thinking normally only afforded to the corporate world. It has evolved into Sally running ‘Curiosity Workshops’. Intrigued?

With a grounding in strategic marketing, Sally’s career has provided extensive exposure to a broad range of sectors including education, retail, infrastructure, information technology and government.

What motivates her each day? Connecting people through ideas is her number one motivator. Helping others by sharing what she knows and making connections is a defining characteristic of the way she works, and always has been. It inspires her.

Unable to resist her natural tendency to ‘think big’, she immersed herself in Entrepreneurial studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Her focus has expanded into mentoring entrepreneurs in Bill Aulet’s Disciplined Entrepreneurship framework.

Sally is an alumna of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Global Entrepreneurship program and is an accredited “MIT Knowledge Partner” to teach Entrepreneurship, the MIT way. In August 2016, she became the first female in Australia accredited to teach MIT’s Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp program.

She recently launched an ambitious new project with business partner Rachel Hentsch Spadafora.
They are on a mission to build a Global Community of Makers, Innovators, and Entrepreneurs.
