Tanya Rutherford

Tanya has spent much of her career guiding, supporting and coaching people to take control and get their career, and business off the ground.

Currently the Student Mentor Program Officer at CQUniversity, Tanya delivers student mentoring and leadership programs, including CQUniversity’s annual student leadership conference.

Tanya initially dreamed of a career in corporate accounting, but after having a family, starting her own coaching business and working in her role in student mentoring and leadership, Tanya realised she was passionate about youth social entrepreneurship programs.

Inspired by her CQUni study and role, Tanya created a learning empowerment program – Learn2Learn – to help new students make the transition to learning and university. Tanya’s dream is to deliver the program at all universities as part of their enrolment process, to improve student experiences.

Tanya is also an entrepreneurial coach, helping mums who lack confidence in themselves and their business to confidently take control of their business and build a successful future.
