Meet Gillian Kelly 

'Capitalise On Your Talents. Unleash Your Potential. Live Your Dream!’ is the mantra that Gillian has brought to life for professionals Australia-wide.

As a passionate marketing specialist, Gillian became frustrated watching talented professionals being overlooked and under-remunerated simply because they didn’t stand out. They had the goods to ‘rise the ranks’ – but they struggled to put together the marketing fundamentals needed to ensure that management and industry saw it. And so the journey began and Gillian switched her talents to marketing people rather than products.

Since her early days in marketing Gillian has gone on to be one of the world's most respected career marketing and resume writing practitioners. As Australia's foremost Personal Branding Strategist and a Master Resume Writer, her capacity to market her clients through clearly branded resumes saw her become a distinguished recipient of multiple awards in the highly coveted international “Toast of the Resume Industry” Awards.

As an active industry member Gillian’s career advice and work are featured in books and resources globally and as a career sector trend watcher, she is regularly sourced by media as a career topic expert. Gillian is a member of the CDI Resume Writer Certification Panel and is a CDI Ask-an-Expert. She is one of only a handful of receipients of the Master Resume Writer Lifetime Achievement Award a Queensland committee member of the Career Development Association of Australia.
