Here's some information about our guests:
CEO & Founder, ASPL
For the past nine years, Kris Grant has been leading ASPL Group as CEO, overseeing its management consulting, training and recruitment divisions to deliver major transformational projects, strategic leadership training, and personnel resourcing to improve business functions and increase productivity across Australia’s public and private sectors.
A champion of emerging leaders and an ambassador for workplace equality, Kris has built a successful career and a stable of key clients through living her own mantra of always being an authentic leader and empowering her staff, and her clients’ personnel, to create opportunities for success.
CEO & Founder, Few and Far
Creative to her core and entrepreneurial in spirit, Tara Solberg is the founder and owner of both Few and Far and Indigo Love, two halves of one thriving business based on the beautiful South Coast of New South Wales. Tara has built a multi-layered business comprising retail, wholesale and online offerings of one-off treasures and thoughtful homewares for which the brand is known.
Tara's life partner Danny is also her business partner, and together they run and manage the business based on the simple goal of 'Bringing The World Home'.
In 2019, Few and Far was nominated to represent Australia at The Global Innovator Awards, honouring excellence in home goods retailing around the world, and were awarded the title of Global Honouree from out of 32 countries.
Along with her business, Tara is equally passionate about education and equipping fellow entrepreneurial women with the tools they need to thrive in business, which has led to the launch of TRADE WINS, an online course dedicated to help others build a successful retail business.
The purpose of the 6 Star Business is to bring awareness, connection and ingenuity to businesses aiming to shine today and into the future through more than 5 star reviews. We are here to lift businesses to create a better future.
