Jamie Dawson


During my time building the WeWork community when we launched in Melbourne, I met the Sydney chapter host of GFN. There I learned all about GFN and the amazing work being done with this community, I knew Melbourne had to have it. I brought GFN to Melbourne WeWork, hosting 3 of them across our buildings. Now that I am no longer with that business I still want to be a part of this community and give back in my own way.

I'm a Melbourne based product manager, who asks annoying questions with a deep passion in systematic change. A classic kiwi based for the last 7 years in Melbourne, Australia.

With over 5 years experience in the startup ecosystem, building and growing some of the largest global startups & scaleups in Melbourne, I've entrenched myself in this community. My growth mindset and interpersonal skills have grounded me in business around communication, customer experience, stakeholder management and the entrepreneurial spirit of getting shit done.

In more technical terms, I use a combination of design thinking + agile workflow + business strategy + cross functional team communication.

I'm motivated by my relationships and technology + services that create systematic change. I take deep value in our natural world and when I'm not working on the deliverable of a product, you can find me in the garage, building my first motorcycle, down the coast surfing at my favourite spot near Wye River or out in the wilderness hiking with good friends.
