Tania Taylor is the General Manager and Co-Owner of Wild Women On Top.
After taking on the Sydney Coastrek challenge as a participant, Tania fell in love with the iconic brand and decided to leave a rather cushy but routine and stressful corporate career and seek a life of excitement and adventure.
In 2017, Tania went from being an employee to Di’s partner at Wild Women On Top, and that was the start of a whole new adventure. It has taken her out of her comfort zone and thrust her into the world of challenge and exhilaration that all social enterprise owners experience from time to time.
Tania brings enormous expertise in corporate strategy, marketing and management, and with her skills, the business is perfectly positioned to share their message globally and inspire more women to lead adventurous lives they love.
What’s your role in the WWOT team?
Looking after the business side of things! Keeping the team on track and hatching new ideas with my adventure partner Di.
What is your favourite thing about the WWOT community?
Seeing our clients' sparkle reemerge. They come from all walks of life but have so many commonalities - not enough time, putting others first - but they reconnect with a love of nature and adventure and start leading lives they love almost immediately after joining.
What’s at the top of your bucket list?
My list is so long! I haven't even scratched the surface - right now it's a hiking trip to New Zealand around the Queenstown area.
Where will we find you on a Sunday morning?
Riding my bike or an early morning run and then a coffee at my local catching up with neighbors and friends.
What’s the wildest adventure you’ve ever been on?
I've been on so many! Im originally from South Africa, I've travelled quite a bit in the southern part of Africa - I love the African bush. For my equivalent of schoolies, I lived in a small village called Monkey Bay on the banks of Lake Malawi for a month - that was amazing and I wouldn't mind retracing our journey across Zimbabwe, Angola and Mozambique.
What motto or mantra do you live by?
Desiderata: 'Go placidly amidst the noise and haste ...' Max Ehrmann was onto something with this one. It's almost as if written for this time and generation.
