“I’ve had a love affair with this process for 5 years – and I’ve been able to take the knowledge with me to every organisation I’ve joined. It’s insightful, tried & tested and foolproof”
~ Len Russell, Fundraising Manager, Bipolar Australia
Whilst shiny & new, it features a robust, tried & tested process that’s produced stunning results & multi-million-dollar partnerships for changemakers in Australia for over a decade.
We’re supported by an amazing team of social entrepreneurs from the corporate, for purpose, media, online and finance sectors.
Hailey has been at the forefront of CSR & Social Good since founding her award-winning* company Cavill + Co in 1995. Prior to this she gave up a successful yet unfulfilling marketing career in London to pursue her passion down under. Since then she’s been matchmaking corporates to charities in long term partnerships – 50 partnerships to date investing over $40m into social good projects. Her numerous corporate clients include Mondelez Australia (partnering them with Save the Children) Vodafone Australia (to Hello Sunday Morning) and Seek (to Volunteering Australia). The Seek Volunteer program is now 20 years strong and has changed the face of volunteering.
In addition to matchmaking, Hailey has published 7 books on CSR and the neuroscience of altruism; is a sought-after speaker & MC; and has enjoyed her ‘50 minutes of fame' when Grand Designs Australia followed the building of her eco home & office. She has been training non-profits for over 20 years and BePartnerReady.com™ is a juicy fusion of all her knowledge and experience.
An adventurous explorer in her younger years (having visited 12 of the 18 wonders of the world), these days she prefers to stay close to home where she loves painting (canvas not walls), chai, Grey Goose vodka, her rescue cat Rosie and her hubby Ty (he’s last, but she loves him the most). She’s known by her friends as ‘the salad Queen’ (thanks to chef Ottolenghi).

Georgia is a Communications whiz and a typical Millennial juggling numerous projects in work and life, all with an infectious smile and can-do attitude. She is Communications Co-ordinator at a global non profit where she manages the flow of their brand story. She’s also director of her own communications consultancy and Co-Founder of BePartnerReady.com®. Somehow she also manages to tackle a Masters of International Development with RMIT.
In addition to spreading joy & optimism wherever she goes, Georgia loves to indulge her thirst for adventure with recent travels to Japan, India and Morocco. She loves trying new food yet prefers Hailey’s salads to the tarantula she ate in Cambodia. When at home she loves to walk her dog Amber, make the most of the live gig scene in Melbourne and butting heads with her pet goat named Meg.
She’s a documentary die-hard, loves reading and making connections, and she’s known by her friends as ‘G’.

We would not Be, without our incredible partner:
Karl Tischler, Marlin Communications
As well as an experienced designer, storyteller & philosopher, Karl is the Founder and Idealist at Marlin Communications, and the instigator of the firm’s focus on ethical and sustainable business practices. We think he’s the coolest guy on the planet, but don’t tell him—he’ll blush.
Karl is a passionate activist and alumni of the Australian Progress Fellowship. With his business partners, Dan Geaves and James Hornitzky, Marlin Communications has made the deliberate choice to work only with charities and purpose-driven organisations.
Certified as one of Australia’s first B-Corp companies, Marlin is set to become one of Australia’s first certified Carbon Neutral agencies. It was Karl’s belief – that business can be a force for social good – that led him to befriend Hailey Cavill almost a decade ago. When the idea of an online program began to take shape, there was only one agency that she wanted for her brand and that was Marlin. What started out as a logo on the back of a beer mat (not joking), BePartnerReady.com™ transformed into the amazing, uplifting, optimistic brand that it is today, thanks to many talents of the team at Marlin.
Karl lives in Leichhardt, Sydney with his wife, two daughters, a cat and puppy named ‘Rocket’—the fastest dog in Leichhardt who also looks like the lead character from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’.
