About Colleen Callander

Colleen Callander, with over three decades of expertise in retail fashion, is a beacon of leadership.

She steered iconic brands Sportsgirl and Sussan to new heights during her 13-year tenure as CEO. Renowned for her brand-building and her ability to cultivate environments that drive high performance, Colleen's impact on Australia's fashion landscape has earned her accolades as an award-winning CEO.

Beyond her corporate success, Colleen is a visionary thought leader and entrepreneur. She is a sought-after business and leadership advisor, a celebrated keynote speaker, author, and the founder of Mentor Me Women, serving as a testament to her commitment to inspiring and empowering all generations in both business and life.

Colleen's journey in retail began at 16 with a summer job that unknowingly set the stage for her remarkable career. Today, she not only shares her extensive experience as a former CEO but also her deep industry and leadership insights.

Despite her success, Colleen faced challenges, including burnout in 2007 while balancing a high-profile career with raising three young children. She made a pivotal decision to step away from it all, only to rediscover her passion and recommit to her journey in retail leadership. By implementing boundaries and self-care into her life, Colleen found powerful yet simple ways to prevent burnout and cultivate a high-performance lifestyle in both business and life. Colleen's work today is a testament to her resilience and commitment to inspiring change. An advocate for rewriting the leadership playbook, she champions kindness, authentic confidence, self-belief, and empowerment. Her message resonates globally, inspiring individuals to unlock their extraordinary potential.
