Meggie's story

I founded PepTalkHer after being screwed over on my pay by a major news network. it's now my mission to make sure no-one else goes through the stress that I did.I love teaching & empowering others to avoid the mistakes I’ve made!

I founded PeptalkHer and we're on a mission to close the gender pay gap.

In my previous life I was a foreign correspondent. It led me to interview a LOT of people - among them, Bashar Al Assad in Syria.

I’ve had the privilege to interview more than 5000 people during my career as a journalist for networks like the BBC World, Dateline, CNBC & Channel 7. From terrorists to transformational leaders, I’ve sat down with Global CEOs including KPMG’s Lynne Doughtie, activists like Blair Imani & Christy Turlington as well as Julia Gillard, Hugh Jackman & Brad Pitt.

These days, I speak & write about gender & diversity globally as the founder of PepTalkHer - a tech company on a mission to close the pay gap.

I’ve been featured in media outlets including CNBC, Vogue, Marie Claire, Forbes, Women’s Agenda, News Corporation, ABC’s The Drum and others.

This is my second business.

I’m a guest lecturer for Columbia University and speak at corporate events including for Revlon, JP Morgan and the New York City Council.

I travel globally speaking & helping companies with retaining female leaders & diversity.

I'm a proud Aussie who now calls NYC home!
