Jeanette Cheah

Innovation at ANZ and founder of The Hired
Melbourne, Australia

Jeanette is fearless... A go-getter and a bloody hard worker. Working a number of projects outside of her day-to-day job, proves her ambition and determination. This kind-hearted honey is very ​generous with her time, which she sometimes spends on barre classes. Did we mention she's gaga for French cheese, and cats?

  • YOU IN 4. Ambitious, creative, curious, social.
  • PASSION PROJECT. I'm currently organising a totally unique, totally delicious, not-for-profit event:
    www.gingerbreaddemolition.com. It's going to be a huge party in Melbourne this December, all in the interest of raising funds for Save the Children Australia.
  • PROUD AS PUNCH. When I really think about it, I'm pretty proud that I delivered a marketing keynote speech at a financial services conference in Shanghai at the tender age of 24. There were over 300 people in the audience, so clearly I was too naive to be nervous! More recently, I've been proud to teach marketing classes at General Assembly - so at least I'm consistent.
  • BIG GOAL. I have two big goals right now. One is to make the transition from just having a 'day job' to also running my fledgling business The Hired www.thehired.com.au, which is a fresh take on career services and personal branding. The other is to find a dream home in Melbourne's inner south-east and make it mine!
  • FAVE QUOTE. “It always seems impossible until it is done.” - Nelson Mandela.
  • GUILTY PLEASURE. Cheese. The oozier the better. And I am obsessed with trying new restaurants.
  • CHILL OUT. I think I'm supposed to say something like 'yoga' or 'barre classes', but if I'm honest, I'd prefer to eat cheese (see above), drink wine and watch Netflix...
  • ON WE. It's like having a bunch of really smart, really insightful friends who truly have your back and want you to succeed.
