The COO Collective

Australia's leading peer network advancing the role the the COO

About us.

The COO Collective is Australia’s peer network dedicated to advancing the role of the COO.

We were formed by the coming together of a number of leading COO’s from across different industries, to connect, share and develop each other and our organisations around us. Despite the contrast of the industries we come from, we all tackle similar challenges everyday and the network supports us in our role as COO.

Our mission is to advance the prominence of the COO role in Australian growth businesses to help build billion dollar businesses in Australia.

Organisations Don’t Innovate, People Do

As COO’s we’re passionate about working with people – founders, business leaders and teams to make their ideas happen. We’ll work towards one goal: delivering impactful work that has the power to transform the future of our businesses through your ideas.

Been There, Doing it, and Always Learning

COOs can bring unique approaches to innovation and building businesses that are truly collaborative and well thought out. We know first hand what it’s like leading and founding small and big companies, leading teams and simply doing “it”.

Making it happen

Innovation isn’t just a buzzword – so let’s stop talking about it. As COO’s we work alongside leaders and teams to help set the direction of businesses, deliver great work and make ideas happen become a reality through execution.

THE FUTURE IS NOT A DESTINATION, IT’S A DIRECTION.

The Team.

Our founding team is made up of a group of COO’s all with diverse backgrounds. Innovation strategists, doers, thinkers and creators with unique perspectives on making innovation happen from their experience in consulting, leading tech startups and big businesses.
