What makes a Game Changer? People who are curious, creative, street-smart, a bit disruptive, and a bit cheeky were some of the characteristics described when we posed the question during our latest series of Game Changers with TV star Edwina Bartholomew.

Nick Molnar, cofounder of Afterpay
“Real game Changers want to build a legacy,” said Nick from Afterpay.
In his interview with Edwina, he explains the business and budgeting sense behind Afterpay – the award-winning FinTech company he co-founded – and why the ‘Shop now. Take now. Pay it in 4.’ movement is all about responsible spending.

Louise Troen from the women’s social networking site Bumble
Louise described a Game Changer as someone who typically spends time ‘identifying an issue or problem in society, addressing it and building a business to fix it.”
And that’s what her company set about doing.
In her interview with Edwina, she explains how the platform has grown organically to include other forms of connecting, the philosophy has continued to be one of ‘women supporting women’ under an umbrella of kindness, respect and integrity.
With female users of the dating app discovering there were so many like-minded people on the platform, they called for a community where friendships are created and Bumble BFF was born! User demand struck again when those friendships started generating business connections and Bumble Bizz became the spot to expand your network and make empowering career moves.

Andy Ridley, founder of Citizens of The Great Barrier Reef
Describing his view of how a Game Changer behaves, Andy said: “You must be thinking outside of the box and beyond the norm.”
He certainly did that when he launched Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef last year in a move to focus on the future of the natural wonder of our beautiful reef and make sure the world isn’t giving up on its future.

Christine Kinninmonth, co-founder of Fertile Mind
Christine says a Game Changer is someone who has a strong vision. “They look at the world as if it is their oyster and they think globally , they dot think locally ….I would say that is a game changer,” she said.
Christine’s first ever invention, BellyBelt®, came from her Earth-friendly mantra of Refuse, Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle.
Fertile Mind’s range now includes ethical Fair Trade, environmentally-friendly, organic and sustainable products for mindful mothers. Breastfeeding and baby-wearing are core to this mindfulness, and so the range includes nursing pillows to help with correct breastfeeding attachment, and the iconic Hug-a-Bub baby carrier, described in media as a “must have cult product for mums”.
