Tarran combines a further 7 years of entrepreneurship and the mission of addressing a shortage of Australian Leaders due to under-resourcing, unrealistic expectations and poorly handled change, with senior roles including General Manager, National Executive and CEO. Tarran is an accomplished Presenter, Speaker, Consultant and Executive Coach sharing her expertise face to face with more than 23.500 leaders since 2011. Serving on the Board of Newlife Care,  Tarran is positioned perfectly to provide insights and commentary on leadership issues.

CEO Dayle Brown of Racing Victoria engaged Tarran to work with a cross-section of Stewards, Investigators, Lawyers, Marketing and HR Professional. Dayle first spoke with Tarran after connecting on Linkedin, and knew he wanted her to speak to his team after that conversation confirmed her online presence and Leadership Intelligence on Change, Culture and Diversity.

Thrown into the media spotlight in 2005 Tarran Deane brilliantly handled multiple hot seat interviews with A Current Affair, Talk Back Radio, national & local print media, over community concerns relating to disability respite within the suburbs & Gold Coast City Council proposed zoning changes. 

Tarran’s a keen Ducati 800 Monster owner and Australian Ambassador for the Smart Rider Safety Program. No golf for this Leader, she’ll be ‘cornering like nobody’s business’ and wearing the ‘scaredy lines’ off her rear tyre. Ask her about it when you speak next! 

Tarran regularly keynotes in Australia, Asia & the USA. Tarran is an Associate Fellow of the Australian Institute of Management, National Vice-President of Professional Speakers Australia, Director of Gold Coast based Charity Newlife Care Inc. & Founder of Corporate Cinderella Leadership Development Company.

Tarran and the team love what they do! At Corporate Cinderella Leadership Development Company we’re committed to bringing people together, ‘corporately’, in ‘unity’ to achieve ‘cinderella’ or ‘transformational’ results.


If you want a team that is committed to your growth, thinks way ahead and isn’t afraid to ‘go off road’ then we really ought to have a conversation!


Let’s talk about working together.
