Readhead was started in 2013 by two Australian booklovers Amanda Lintott (Ms A) and Kim Brislane (Ms K). These are two working Mums living miles apart with no way of meeting face to face regularly to talk about books. Instead, they decided to set up Readhead as a virtual book club and way to share their two cents about books as they hit the shelves.
Kim started off her career as a PR, writer and events manager. After years of working for agencies and herself, she was poached by one of her biggest clients, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards. She ended up as National CEO of the Awards for 5 years and is used to stringing a few words together.
Amanda met Kim in 2005 when she was the Dealer Principal of Porsche Centre Sydney South and engaged Kim’s service to help with the launch. They have been friends ever since. Amanda recently sold her two Sydney based boutique recruitment agencies, Career Driven and Networkers Recruitment and talks far too much.
