The team of volunteers behind TEDxMelbourne are committed to delivering world-class TEDx experiences to the city of Melbourne.
As a group we bring a variety of skills, disciplines and experience to everything we do. We’re united in our enthusiasm, dedication and belief that the ability to share ideas can inspire and transform attitudes and lives.
TEDxMelbourne licensee and curator, Jon Yeo holds a Degree in Information Management and Human Resources and has worked for Fortune 100 companies in Australia, UK and the United States.

He is passionate about how social entrepreneurship can support business and communities, building mutual benefits and outcomes. Today, Jon runs business networking events, consults and speaks locally and internationally on the topics of success, mindset and Getting Things Done.
Tracey is a people person with a natural bent for logical processes and their improvement which is why you find her in the front of house for events – first on the registration desk with her team and then organising whatever else will keep attendees happy……like food! Her more than 20 years in IT, mainly as an IT business systems analyst, suits her logical mind while her part time alternative health practice balances her love of people. Her company is called Cut The Crap (TM) which sums up her methodology and mind set. For fun, she is currently taking off her clothes on stage as an amateur burlesque performer.

Jen’s spent over 10 years in marketing, more recently specialising in digital, brand, social and strategy. Currently the Digital Marketing Manager for a national financial services organisation, she’s also an avid sci-fi fan, loves Eames chairs as much as she loves IKEA and Lego, and thinks everyone should ride a bike.

She’s passionate about the web and curious about the intersection between creativity and technology. Currently an Online Content Coordinator for a non-profit, Julie is a geek at heart and spends most of her time either in front of the computer or on her iPhone. She loves blogging and taking pretty pictures. Oh and she loves food.
