Women’s Entrepreneurship Day 2020

To celebrate Women’s Entrepreneurship Day 2020, Rowe Advisory and Promitheia Procurement owner and CEO, Jody Rowe, has been reflecting on both her businesses ~ Rowe Advisory as it heads towards its 7th Anniversary next month and new start-up Promitheia Procurement which launched this September.

“Launching Rowe Advisory at one of the toughest times in the resource sector’s recent history and following it up by launching Promitheia Procurement during a global pandemic has been both daunting and exhilarating,” Jody explained. “I’m passionate about diversity, the future of the gig economy and the active inclusion of women in all industries. Setting up Rowe Advisory and Promitheia Procurement has allowed me to champion women working in traditionally male dominated environments. I would encourage other women thinking about starting their own business to actively pursue their ideas and dreams.”

Following more than 30 years as a commercial and contracts and procurement specialist for multinationals such as BG Group-QGC, Santos and Rio Tinto, Jody made the decision to pursue her dream of starting her own consultancy business, and Rowe Advisory was born. The business has gone from strength to strength developing its advisory services, focussing on Oil & Gas, Mining, Industrial, Construction and Engineering sectors.

Promitheia Procurement is a comprehensive online procurement tool that provides all businesses with the opportunity to purchase procurement templates and work with online professionals to design any business procurement function to meet their unique requirements. It’s a digital platform which provides access to talent across the globe, a cost-effective opportunity to fast track performance and direct access to procurement professionals. It can save time and money, and assist in managing risk and spend by offering easy-to-use services that can be remotely accessed.

2020 has been a tough year for every business, the market has changed dramatically and we hope to navigate our way through with the support of the government and our loyal clients.
