Full Presenter Profile & Bio
Whenever you start a new business, or create an award-winning Melbourne International Comedy Festival show, or collect testimonies for the War Crimes Tribunal, the amazing Georgina McEncroe has done it all.
George McEncroe is the CEO and founder of Shebah, Australia's ridesharing service for women. While trying to safely get her four kids where they needed to go and support her family as a single mum, she came up with an idea for a business: ridesharing that allowed an all-women fleet of drivers to earn income whenever suited them, and that provided worry-free transport for women and children. Now that she's turned her idea into a reality, she's added CEO to the list of roles on her resume, which include stand-up comedian, breakfast radio host, ABC producer and more.
Shebah is changing the lives of drivers, all of whom are women and all of whom experience flexibility, a solid income, and a collective purpose of women's empowerment. Shebah inspires passengers to demand safety as a necessity, not just a nice-to-have. George is unafraid to do the work involved in getting women half the seats at the table - because one for the sake of 'diversity' just isn't good enough.
George started her career in comedy after becoming a Victorian Finalist for Raw Comedy. Her debut one-woman show for Melbourne International Comedy Festival won her a Best New-Comer nomination. George has appeared on Spicks and Specks, Can of Worms and is a regular guest co-host on The Circle. She can be heard on 3AW, 774 and Radio Australia as well as occasionally popping up on Triple R.
