Our founder's Story

A Regional Australian

Kerry Grace worked in the corporate world with a focus on advertising, marketing and business services through the early years of her career then transitioned to adult education where she enjoyed over a decade as vocational education teacher, then a senior business development team member for TAFE NSW. Through this time she grew her business Evolve Group Network which has served the regional Australian communities for almost 20 years.

Kerry lives in the Mid North Coast of NSW. She is mum to three grown up kids and has a quirky collection of pets including alpacas. Like many regional kids of the time Kerry left home soon after completing her HSC. She returned home in 2003 to raise her family. Kerry established Evolve Network in 2003 as a means of balancing her growing family and a flexible way to make a living in a small town. The business always set out to achieve social impact and through the years it most certainly has.

Once upon a time Kerry Grace was an ‘accidental leader’.

She describes this phase as a time of overcoming the ‘tall poppy’ syndrome that had plagued her younger life. Something that Kerry admits held her back for many years.

Still, Kerry rose above her earlier challenges and now mentors regional leaders through her writing and public speaking. 

Through her life and career experiences Kerry continues to demonstrate integrity, passion, and love of what she does.
