Tracy Sheen, Member
Tracy has been an Ipswich resident since 2004 and has had an active interest in the growth of the Western Corridor since her arrival. She is passionate that the Ipswich and West Moreton areas are uniquely placed to grow and benefit from the opportunities that are available to businesses today.
Tracy is the founder and CEO of Unusual Comms, a niche marketing and communications company focussed on utilising agile platforms to raise and leverage the profile of small to medium businesses. Through her strong, pragmatic approach to business, she has the ability to perceive new and exciting opportunities where others may not.
For over twenty years, Tracy has worked with some of Australia's leading retailers and a diverse range of small businesses. This first-hand experience has given her a deep understanding of the challenges business owners face today as technology evolves and throws into question some long-held beliefs about how business should be done.
Tracy is a writer, podcaster and speaker with a long history of working with the community. She is currently a committee member of the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce, host of the West Brisbane LinkedIn Local networking group, and is often seen as MC at charity and business functions in the region. Tracy is a regular contributor to Smallville, Australia's premier online small business community, and has had articles featured in the New York Times - Small Business, and has been a judge for the Australian Podcasting Awards since its inception.
During her downtime, Tracy is a passionate supporter of formula one motor racing, enjoys live theatre productions, music and cooking up a storm for friends and family.
