Speaking topics: social entrepreneurship, start-ups, young women in leadership, building a beauty company, resilience.


Bonnie's passion for purpose-driven business and curing treatable blindness was sparked during time in Vanuatu, where she met a lady with cataracts in both eyes trying to raise her two children. She's not an eye surgeon but wanted to help.

Bonnie is the Co-founder and director of Indigo & Iris, and ethical beauty company that apportions profit to the Fred Hollows Foundation to perform restorative eyesight surgery. Her goal is to help cure treatable blindness in the South Pacific by 2025.

Bonnie has received an international youth leadership award, attended the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, and been short-listed as a finalist in the Women of Influence Awards.
