Renee Coman
Business Development Manager

With an appetite for change, I want to support others make a meaningful change in the 🌏.

How do I do this?

As an entrepreneur I founded Distance Assistance in 2017, delivering sustainable health & wellbeing solutions for organisations with remote workforce via our innovative 24/7 wellness platform delivering relevant content with activity-based metrics.

Secondly, as a Community Leader, I help connect local entrepreneurs, businesses, government stakeholders and community members. This is achieved by organising experiential learning events, such as Startup Weekend and Startup Weekend, growing innovation and business capacity on the coast, providing a platform for others to stand up, speak up and cause a ripple effect.
