Celebrating Women in Business

Left to right: Georgia Hatzis, Nadia Travaglini and Tammy Barton

Three talented South Australian women have turned their big ideas into successful and lucrative, female-led enterprise. You can read about their business journeys in the latest issue of South Australian Style, but for some fun facts read on…

Tammy Barton / MyBudget

She’s one of South Australia’s most-known female-led successes and her story has been told times over. Tammy Barton’s big idea was simple – to help people out of financial trouble. That was 21 years ago, and what started from her kitchen table is now a $34 million-a-year business.

In five year’s I hope to be… the founder of a global company, with MyBudget operating in at least three countries.

Last big-ticket purchase… a sauna. My husband and I have been reading about all the health benefits of an infrared sauna – it literally just arrived! 

Best advice I’ve ever received… greatness is not a function of circumstances. Greatness is largely a matter of conscious choice and discipline.

When I was young I wanted to be a… a singer! Unfortunately, I find it hard to hold a note!

Georgia Hatzis / GGPR

A chance start in fashion was all founder of nationally renowned PR agency GGPR needed, the rest of her success has been self-made through hard work and a determination to be part of the industry she loves.

My style is influenced by… French girls and my Godmother Karin.

The last thing I bought was… Lex Pott candles.

My favourite Australian-made label is… Viktoria & Woods.

If I wasn’t in PR I would be… a stylist, photographer or a homewares buyer.

Nadia Travaglini / Studio Botanic

Floral artistry is a thing and Adelaide’s Nadia Travaglini is at the helm. Her arrangements are big, and the thought and tenacity that goes into the placement of every single stem is the reason she’s risen to the top of her game

My style icon is… Dior.

My artistry is influenced by… floral artists like Mary Lennox.

My favourite flower is… Nepenthe Pitcher Plant, but it can change with the seasons. 

Best advice I’ve ever received… surround yourself with people who are better than you.

The Colonist: Eclectic Interior & Energetic Atmosphere

Since 1851, The Colonist has been a staple in the Adelaide pub scene, known for its eclectic interior and energetic atmosphere. Specialising in small and large modern Australian dishes, the pub also hosts an impressive cocktail, craft beer and wine list.

Upon arrival, high ceilings and elaborate copper roofing catch the eye. Combined with the original pub wallpaper and Gustave Klimt paintings on the walls, the space is warm and welcoming. Order a gin and tonic at the main bar or take advantage of the alfresco dining during the warmer months.

On the weekend, enjoy all-day breakfast. Between the Tasmanian Smoked Salmon Florentine or the Loaded Brekkie, there is something for everyone. Pair with a freshly squeezed OJ or a Bloody Mary cocktail and start the day right! As a dog-friendly venue, weekend brunch at The Colonist is the perfect excuse to get your furry friend out and about.

The current lunch and dinner menus have a seasonal focus. Head Chef, Dean Lennerth focuses on fresh flavours that champion local produce. Enjoy the Salt ‘n’ Peter Squid Salad with crispy noodle slaw or Grilled Local Halloumi with tomato salsa. You’ll still find all your pub favourites, like the 250g Chargrilled Angus Sirloin and the Crispy Chicken Burger with sweet potato wedges, and there’s plenty of gluten-free and vegetarian options available too.

As South Australia becomes increasingly renowned for its microbreweries, The Colonist offers an extensive range of South Australian craft beers.

Inner City Dining: Jack & Jill’s

We all know how the nursery rhyme goes, but Jack & Jill’s Bar and Restaurant is no child’s play.

Jack & Jill’s quietly opened in October of 2019 in the former Old Friend site on Pirie Street. After a tough start to 2020, the venue joins a flock of bar and restaurants welcoming sophisticated night life back to the Pirie Street precinct.

The renovated street-level restaurant is spacious with a warm fit-out – think timber, crushed velvet and exposed lighting. It’s chic without being fussy.

During the warmer months, the front bifold doors extend out welcoming street diners into a porch-like dining space.

Designed for large groups to gather and share, the modern Australian menu offers a generous selection of smaller and larger plates.

The menu draws from a range of global influences, from Korean (sticky fried chicken and crunchy slaw) to Middle Eastern (spiced lamb shoulder with pearl couscous) and Sri Lankan (barramundi curry and coconut rice). There’s plenty of vegetarian options available too – try the whole roasted cauliflower with radish, beetroot and warm buttermilk dressing.

If there’s room for more, don’t go past a serve of the sweet potato doughnuts and sour cream ice cream or the local cheese plate.

After dinner, groups are encouraged to travel down the ‘hill’ to the Basement Bar. Lowly lit yet full of life, the after-hours bar serves innovative cocktails and a delightful local wine list of seasonal varieties from the Barossa to the Adelaide Hills wine regions.

Intimate without feeling small, the space welcomes local music acts each month and a host of resident DJs every weekend. Find the September line-up here.

Jack & Jill’s is open Tuesday – Friday, 12pm – Late and Saturday 6pm – Late. Basement Bar is open Friday and Saturday nights only.

Try Reformer Pilates For Free – and Help Fight Childhood Cancer

On September 19 make your way down to your closest Studio Pilates to support children with cancer and those who love them. 

With 24 studios worldwide, Studio Pilates use advanced video technology to create high-energy 40-minute reformer workout sessions. They are hosting their second ‘Hundreds for Hope’ day next Saturday, which raises money for The Kids’ Cancer Project. 

All proceeds from the fundraiser go towards improved cancer treatments, survivorship program development and medical research towards finding a cure.

Globally, an estimated 300,000 children between the ages of 0-19 are diagnosed with cancer every year, with three children dying weekly. Each day, three Australian families are given the tragic news ‘your child has cancer’. 

South Australian Studio Pilates owner Joanne Thiele says the studios will open to the public and give people the opportunity to experience free reformer Pilates. “All you need to do is make a donation on the day. So please, rally friends, family and work buddies to come along and enjoy an inspiring full-body workout, on us.”

“We will also raffle off a 50-class pack at each of our four studios at Norwood, Unley, Adelaide City and Henley Beach to those that join us on Saturday,”

Collection tins will be available on the counters at all studio locations and donations can be made via The Kids’ Cancer Project.

Studio Pilates locations will open from 9:30am-2:30pm.

Long Lunch Raising Awareness for Baby Loss

Annabel Bower, founder of The Miles Apart Foundation

Take this opportunity to lunch with the ladies for a worthwhile cause. On Friday 11 September, The Miles Apart Foundation is hosting their first major fundraising event at Adelaide Oval to raise awareness for baby loss. 

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month is coming up in October, this non-profit organisation has over 300 women attending the long lunch, with all proceeds going to charity. 

“The event is a celebration of motherhood in all its forms and will raise funds to support those affected by baby loss”, says Founder of Miles Apart, Annabel Bower.

Miles Apart works closely with hospitals around Australia to increase awareness and support women and families dealing with baby loss.

“In Australia, six babies are stillborn every day. Annually, this number doubles that of the national road toll. In addition, one in four pregnancies end in miscarriage and each day two infants die”.

Statistics from St George’s University of London suggest that COVID-19 could increase stillbirths in Australia, after a recent increase in the United Kingdom. 

Expectant mothers are reluctant to attend hospital in fear of infection and adding pressure to the National Health Service. In Australia, final figures will not be known until 2022. 

Annabel’s fourth child, Miles, was stillborn. Having experienced this loss, she has written the book, Miles Apart, to grow awareness and assist others through this personal tragedy. 

Through hospitals, local medical centres and pregnancy loss support services, the book will be available to grieving parents and families from this October.

“We hope through the event and book, we can support anyone who is suffering and guide those supporting the bereaved by opening up and normalising the conversation surrounding baby loss.”
