Full Presenter Profile & Bio
Kirsty Dunphey grew up immersed in an entrepreneurial wonderland: parents who had their own businesses and rental properties, who escaped the rat race and retired in their 30’s and who enveloped her in that culture working in their businesses from a young age. It was perfect, until as the story always goes, it wasn’t. Kirsty chose to take watching her parents go bankrupt as a valuable learning experience rather than a deterrent.
The valuable life lessons she lived through started the journey that lead her to starting her first two businesses coupled with two part time jobs under her belt at the age of 15, to her own award winning real estate agency at 21 and continuing on that path to being a self made millionaire at 23, self made multi millionaire by 25 and with the ability to completely retire for life at the age of 27.
Kirsty is a proud former National Telstra Young Business Woman of the Year (the youngest awarded to date) and delights in sharing what she’s learned over a 20 year entrepreneurial journey in the real estate and finance industries.
Most recently the focus of Kirsty’s speaking has been:
- Encouraging and guiding sales professionals – both those who are female working in male dominated industries and those who need to relate to females in the selling process
- Presenting on the age old debate of how a working mother strives to be amazing parent, while also wanting to excel in their career.
- Building businesses that are both saleable and scalable.
Kirsty’s passion topics have also always revolved around enhancing interaction with clients to generate lifelong fans.
