iAccelerate Entrepreneurial Women's Breakfast Series

A key initiative of iAccelerate is the engagement with entrepreneurial women via our Entrepreneurial Women's Breakfast Series. Launched in April 2014 the iAccelerate Entrepreneurial Women's Breakfast Series aims to share the insights and stories of successful entrepreneurial women.

The breakfast series will provide a forum to discuss the challenges they have encountered and share lessons they have learnt. The series aims to encourage and inspire a conversation with the Illawarra community from the perspective of women, but will appeal to both men and women alike wanting to engage with the Innovation Ecosystem. 

 

Guest Speaker: Carolyn Mee, Founder, Sound Scouts

Carolyn Mee will present "Imposter Syndrome - Overcoming self-doubt on the road to success."

About the Speaker

Carolyn Mee learnt her first lessons in audience engagement as a presenter on the popular children’s television show “Simon Townsend’s Wonder World”. Carolyn now specialises in serious game and app development with a focus on health.

In 2011 Carolyn set her sights on improving hearing screening and secured funding from the NSW Digital Media Initiative to develop a game to detect hearing loss in children. Collaborating with the National Acoustic Laboratories, the research arm of Australian Hearing, Sound Scouts was created.

In 2014 Carolyn won Simulation Australia’s Serious Games Showcase and Challenge with Ross Symons CEO of Big Ant Studious describing Sound Scouts as “the best use of tech for a serious game that I’ve seen in quite a while.”

In 2014 Carolyn was also selected as a finalist for Tech23, an event focused on the celebration of innovation. Sound Scouts was awarded the REA Digital Disruptor Award. 

In 2015 Carolyn was honoured to be awarded a Medical Devices Fund Grant from NSW Health to further develop and commercialise Sound Scouts.

 

About Sound Scouts

Sound Scouts is a game designed specifically to test the hearing of children around the time they start school. With hearing issues a common cause of speech and learning problems it is important for all children to have their hearing checked to ensure they are able to learn and socialise. If children struggle to hear, they’ll also struggle to learn. Read more
