Jac Bowie is a pre-eminent Australian entrepreneur, best known as the Founder of Business in Heels and multi-discipline producer in the arts.
These days, she is hosting her own Drive program on hit radio station Mix 104.9 in Darwin, along with producing on the side with Flourish Touring, a production company specialising in bringing internationally renowned business thought leaders to Australia and New Zealand to educate and nurture women in business, with a strong emphasis on high quality content. In 2017, Flourish will tour Natalie MacNeil of “She Takes on the World” in a series of intimate workshop style seminars, designed to help female entrepreneurs successfully realise their vision.
Producing and business are a natural fit for Jac. After her early career in cosmetics and then travel at Virgin Airlines, some well-timed career advice from Sir Richard Branson saw Jac change direction and dive head first into her passion for burlesque. She went on to produce high profile events around the world including Miss Burlesque International, The Burlesque Ball and The Ruby Revue, as well as bespoke events and entertainment for high-end clients such as the MoMA New York, Pacha Moscow, and was Tour Manager for the controversial Wolf of Wall Street, Jordan Belfort. This was Jac’s first empire; it was here that she began to amass her now huge social media following of more than 30,000 Facebook fans and 20,000 Twitter followers, and started writing her book, as one does when one is at the top of one’s game.
And then it all fell apart. She found herself alone, couch-surfing with two kids, out of work and nursing a broken ankle to boot. It was then that an idea for a fresh approach to networking came to her, when she most needed the support of her network. The concept was simple: Attract the right women, put them in the right space, and allow them to connect socially. If they hit it off, they would find a way to work together. She called it Business In Heels, the name of her still unfinished book, and after three events was approached to license the event to another producer in Melbourne.
Less than two years later there were over 50 branches franchised across Australia, New Zealand, Spain, United States, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Nepal, Canada and Thailand. This was Jac’s second empire. As the founder and CEO of one of the fastest growing women’s networking events in the world, she proudly presided at the head of an army of heel-clad business women wielding an appetite for success and a glass full of bubbles; but, as with many entrepreneurs, the time came to start something new, and she had learned that it’s best to get out while you’re on top.
So, after leaving Sydney to move to the Southern Highlands, selling Business in Heels and becoming engaged to her farmer in December 2014, Jac is working to her strengths producing for Flourish Touring on the side, and loving watching her small business Bowie Hair Therapy grow before moving up to the Top End to embark on her much awaited radio debut.
