Jessica Hickman - Founder of Bullyology

My latest She's The Boss Chats episode is with the inspiring Jessica Hickman - Founder of Bullyology


Jessica is woman on a mission to stop workplace bullying, and for a very good reason. After arriving in Australia in her early 20's as a backpacker from Wales, she was thrilled when she was offered a role in HR for a massive oil and mining company. The job was based out of Darwin and promised to offer her loads of opportunities to make a change. But then she came into contact with a toxic male manager and everything changed for the worse. Much worse.


After 32 complaints to head office, Jess was eventually listened to, but the company refused to fire the perpetrator and even though she has left now, another young woman has sadly had to go through the same thing. Since she has left, Jess has established Bullyology, written a book and has lots of plans for how to get her message out to as many organisations as possible. Workplace bullying is NOT acceptable.

Dr Olivia Ong - The Heart Centred Doctor

If you're looking for inspiration and empowerment, Dr Olivia Ong is the woman for you. She is incredibly strong in every way and is the founder and CEO of The Heart-Centred Doctor, as well as being a physician in Melbourne. In her business, The Heart-Centred Doctor, Olivia is a medical leadership coach who helps busy high achieving doctors avoid burnout and exhaustion. She also helps them achieve balance, energy and time flexibility through her life transformation for doctors programme, which essentially is a one on one and group coaching programme. Olivia is also a speaker and runs workshops and attends speaking engagements on self-compassion and burnout recovery for doctors, so they can stay in the game longer as compassionate leaders and leave a positive legacy for upcoming generational young doctors. It took a traumatic spinal cord injury in 2008 to transform Olivia's life. The experience was a radical awakening to her soul. Olivia was walking to work one morning and was hit by a car at 60kms which rendered her a paraplegic, paralysed from the waist down and she was told that she would never walk again. Olivia proved them all wrong and would not take no for an answer. So she travelled to Santiago, in the US and spent two years rehabilitating at a spinal cord centre called Project Walk. She truly is remarkable. Self-compassion is at the core of Olivia's business and she believes there are three steps required to achieve this. These are mindfulness, connection and acceptance. Finally, Olivia is about to become an author. She is writing a book about her spinal cord injury in order to help doctors utilise self-compassion and overcome burnout. One very quirky fact about Olivia is that she has watched every single episode of Master Chef live since it began.
