Jess is a Creative Director and Founder of The Open Arms in Melbourne. She’s been doing the ad thing pretty solidly since 2000 - when she was listening to a lot of big riffs and working for peanuts in the independent music industry. But as fate would have it, Jess took a one-off freelance copywriting gig “to make ends meet" and thus began a globetrotting journey revelling in the pirateship-like camaraderie, inventiveness, occasional weirdness and always team spiritedness of creative departments in cities near and far. Throughout her career, Jess has continued to balance work with personal creative projects across public radio, photography, film and theatre.
Many executives struggle with the overuse of drugs, alcohol, and other unhelpful behaviours. The TARA Clinic, where TARA is an acronym for Therapeutic Addiction Recovery Assistance, is the modern solution to addiction treatment and supports successful people to regain control over substance use and addiction while leaving the guilt and shame behind. Tara Hurster is a psychologist and the founder of The TARA Clinic. She understands that people are looking for practical solutions to help them find the freedom they truly crave. As such, she has been the driving force to curate On-Demand Courses and Interactive Programs for people around Australia to have access to practical addiction treatment without needing to interrupt their lives.
