Group Digital Manager

Jac Bowie is Australian radio personality and self-made business woman, but you probably know her as the founder of Business in Heels, or as a theatre producer.

After receiving an offer she couldn’t refuse, Jac made her way to the Top End where she was living out her childhood dream to work in radio, hosting the afternoon drive show “The Cruze with Jac Bowie” on Mix 104.9 FM in Darwin; after a few short months, she was also promoted to the role of Online Content Manager for both Mix 104.9 & Hot 100 stations, overseeing other presenters output on the website and social media as well as making frequent contributions herself.

The role is finishing up, unfortunately, before the end of 2016 due to a format change to the whole station, and as such, Jac is looking for a new role, down south. Ideally in NSW / VIC or QLD.

Before this crazy trip up to the Top End, there was a successful 10 year career producing world class events and bringing hit shows into Australia, such asThe Hurly Burly Show from London’s West End, and creating iconic burlesque & variety events such as The Burlesque BallMiss Burlesque AustraliaLa Femme and The Ruby Revue.

In 2012 she took a break from producing and decided to help other women use those skills to create their own businesses too. So, she created Business in Heels, which during her reign was the fastest growing network of business women in Australia.  What started as a small monthly event went on to have franchises in 45 locations worldwide within 18 months, with locations as far and wide as Canada, Spain, Singapore, Thailand, New Zealand, United States and even Nepal. She sold the business to franchisees in 2014.

Outside of Darwin, Jac is quite the influencer for women 25-45, either because they attended her shows or they joined Business in Heels in one of those 45 locations around the world, and consequently, she gathered an impressive audience herself of over 30K+ followers on Facebook, 20K+ on Instagram, and 30K+ on Twitter. There’s even about 12K on LinkedIn!

And never quite fully hanging up her “producer hat,” Jac from time to time helps other people with their events. In 2015 she was the Entertainment Coordinator for Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras, working with Dannii Minogue, Nick Jonas, Betty Who, Jake Shears (Scissor Sisters), Courtney Act and Jessica Mauboy. She’s also worked with Cirque Du SoleilSpiegelworld, and Disney, and was the producer for Short & Sweet in Sydney and Canberra.

In her spare time, Jac loves to help other women in business in a mentoring/consulting capacity, and working with charities. She has given her time and support to many great causes such as Sanfilippo Children’s FoundationThe Leukemia Foundation, and YMCA Swimathon to name a few, and helped organize events for NAIDOC Week and Refugee Week.

Oh, and she loves a good road trip with her husband & kids, and a chilled glass of rose – though not at the same time!
