Julie Ankers is an entrepreneur with a passion for promoting and developing people, which is why she started a speakers and trainers bureau 24 years ago as well as a company focusing on retaining mature age workers and building effective age-inclusive workforces. This kick-started her interest in the over 50s, especially women who have been disadvantaged by age and gender. It also led to her taking on leadership roles in organisations such as Women Chiefs of Enterprise International (WCEI), National Foundation for Australian Women (NFAW), Economic Security 4 Women (eS4W) and Zonta International.
Three years ago Julie decided to make a tree change and currently lives in the Blue Mountains. She divides her time between 2 x 2-hour radio programs, her various board/committee commitments and writing – yes, she has already started her second book, this time on the lives of men over 50. Not forgetting her obsession with beautifully designed hand-crafted jewellery, her love of a good book with a glass of red, theatre, cinema and the exquisite beauty of the Blumos.
