I’m a mum of two small blonde terrors, wife, sister, daughter, neighbour, friend, and of course a facilitator (leadership development) and a coach (since 2010). I love working with other people, particularly mums, who need encouragement and support to build their personal value, and to really leverage their skills and experiences – especially the ones you overlook! My career spans several industries and involved transitioning from Finance through Business Management to People Development.
My Zone of Genius: Helping people find clarity in the complexity of being human.
- Building confidence and motivation,
- finding your own direction and
- bringing your whole self to your business & life
Tanya’s Short Bio

Tanya is a leadership and entrepreneur coach who works predominately with Mums returning to the workplace or wanting to take their career or business to the next level. Having successfully navigated a corporate career spaning several industries in both London and Melbourne, Tanya used a redundancy to pivot into a professional development career back in 2010.
Now a mother of 2 young girls, this Chartered Manager with qualifications in business, education and management re-positioned her coaching business focus mid 2018 to better support other Mothers who want more than “just an admin job”. Recognizing that mums represent a significantly underutilized and unrecognized (particularly by themselves) positive resource for our economy and communities, Tanya works with them individually or in a group program to leverage their strengths and build successful businesses and careers.
Tanya is recognized for her contributions in leadership through honorary membership with the Golden Key Society, as finalist at the 2018 Ausmumpreneur Awards, in her Chartered Manager status, and acknowledged for the personal impact she has through her workshops, leadership programs and coaching. A believer in lifelong learning, Tanya recently added i4 Neuroleader practitioner and Conquer Coach certification to her portfolio.
Tanya’s current business ventures include her coaching and facilitation (www.tmrutherford.com.au) and also her University preparatory program Learn2Learn (www.learn2learn.net.au).
Tanya has recently been featured in the Capricorn Coast Mirror (AusMumpreneur Finalist, July 2018) and in the Morning Bulletin and other regional Queensland papers (https://www.themorningbulletin.com.au/news/women-top-business-women-leading-front/), October 2018.
Tanya’s approach in speaking is interactive – whether that is action focused within the session, or it may be more personal and reflective in nature. Speaking topics can be tailored to your particular audience and theme.
