Women Share Business Success

New Zealand women working as innovators, creators and entrepreneurs are sharing their insights into business success through a new programme and podcast on OAR FM Dunedin.

Rowan Taigel hosts WOA! Women On Air, a platform for women trying something new and making a difference in their chosen fields.

A former deputy principal at Otago Girls’ High School, Ms Taigel launched her own business this year. What If PLD helps schools and corporate entities to improve the innovative and creative capabilities of their teams, and increase the wellbeing of staff.

Ms Taigel’s experience of leading her former students through a project-based learning course, which saw them develop their own products and start their own small businesses, was the catalyst for making a significant change in her own working life.

Connections made with businesswomen, innovators, leaders and change-makers lead to the creation of the radio and podcast series, which explores the successes, and the speed bumps, that got them to where they are today.

Interview guests have so far included Laura Borrowdale, editor of New Zealand’s first and only erotic literary magazine Aotearotica, Animation Research Ltd CEO Cheryl Adams, and Hatch PBL founder Philippa Dick.

Guests have been asked to nominate other inspiring women for Ms Taigel to talk with in future episodes.

WOA! Women On Air airs every second Wednesday at 11am on OAR 105.4FM and 1575AM. Podcasts are available from oar.org.nz, Google podcasts and Apple podcasts.
