Kellie Stanbury | Island dreaming

Escaping city life to start a social enterprise in Fiji

Kellie Stanbury is an executive turned entrepreneur who stepped away from a high-level career in the travel industry to move to Fiji with her family, where she started Three Hundred Islands, a social enterprise supporting local farmers.

The idea of packing up your city life and moving to Fiji sounds pretty idyllic, but what’s it really like to move to a small Pacific island, away from family, friends and work?

The move presented a unique opportunity to follow a long-held dream… and it ended up being the start of a very exciting new chapter in her career.

In this episode, Kellie talks about her career in the travel industry, the practical steps of moving your family to Fiji (with a dog!), studying an MBA remotely from her island home and launching a social enterprise from her kitchen.
