With over 20 years in corporate marketing, branding, manufacturing and distribution, working with top brands like Jeep, United Colors of Benetton, Sesame Street and The Block, it’s fair to say Therese Tarlinton knows a thing or two about marketing.

With her knowledge and expertise, you too can

take your business from good to great,

it into years of profitability.



After partnering with Jeep, United Colors of Benetton, and Sesame Street, I built a global manufacturing company in my twenties. Collaborating locally to secure media coverage, distribution in David Jones, Target, and Big W plus a promotion with Huggies Nappies enabled me to turn over $1+million in my first year, before scaling to a global company. 

After successfully selling my first company, I moved into eCommerce with a $500m ASX listed company, Grays Commerce Group I led partnerships and social revenue before moving into a General Manager role in their jewellery division - selling over $7 million worth of precious diamonds and gems nationally.

I now work with the big brands collaborating with The Block, Selling Houses Australia, Three Birds Renovations, and identities like Shelley Craft to secure these high-profile brands a constant stream of content, build credibility, and grow sales. 

I am an engaging, passionate speaker, mentor to women in small businesses, and ambassador for Inspiring Rare Birds.  At home in Sydney, you’ll find me playing Rummy with my two teenage sons while my husband is in the garage restoring his vintage car or enjoying a cocktail by the harbour with my girlfriends.
