BUSINESS COACH AND MENTOR: Maree Cutler-Naroba
In February 2021, Maree Cutler-Naroba joined the team as Projects Support for Kimberley Jiyigas and Manager for Maganda Makers Business Club (a division of Kimberley Jiyigas).
Maree is a multi-passionate Entrepreneur and has various business ventures that she puts her hand to. She has a comprehensive employment background in a variety of industries and she is a qualified secondary school teacher and admitted lawyer (currently non-practising). For over 15 years, Maree has run her own coaching, mentoring, and consulting businesses; she delights most in being able to champion women, especially those for whatever reason may find themselves in a marginalised and disadvantaged position.
Maree believes starting and running a sustainable business is a vehicle that women can use to turn their dreams and ideas into reality, through activating their passions and gifts. Of equal delight to Maree is her drive to advocate for the protection of children from child abuse and neglect, which is why Maree is involved at a Board level on a couple of NGOs that have this same drive. Maree is from New Zealand and moved with her husband, Fijian-born Tevita Naroba, to Australia in 2010, currently, they reside in Kununurra, East Kimberley.

The Maganda Makers Business Club (MMBC) is being developed through a collaboration of Kimberley Birds, Good Return and the Menzies Foundation.
The MMBC nurtures a community of Kimberley Indigenous Women (KIW) who lift one another higher, to gain strength, inspiration and skills to build wealth through business. The MMBC believes that wealth in the hands of a KIW has the power to drive transformation for herself, her household, her family and for her community.
The MMBC is an important Kimberley Indigenous and Women-specific resource of encouragement, dream-building and practical support which empowers Maganda Makers, enabling them to incubate and then scale beyond a nano/micro-business, in order to create wealth that is used for good.
