About

Hi I’m Mia Maze and I help create pathways for connections.

Others will tell you ...I do that through LISTENING, UNDERSTANDING, and PROBLEM-SOLVING. That my passion is innovation in business and helping local businesses succeed.

I will tell you...I  leverage the emotional aspects of connectedness with pathways less about ‘me’ and more about ‘us’.

As a child, I loved to play. I reveled in imagination. Always believing that I could control my world through my mind. I would become a character and lose myself in their world. I would explore what it felt like to be in someone else's shoes by being them - even if just for a moment. I would shift my perspective away from assumptions and make my belief my reality.

And that's where Mazey Consulting was created.

MY BELIEFS

This where it gets personal. I believe that six degrees is all that separates us from anyone else in the world and that's why I am on a mission to be a super-connector for regional businesses and help create pathways for connections for entrepreneurs, innovators, change-makers, and leaders.

I believe how we choose to live, work, and who we spend our time with can change the way we look at the world. I know it's crucial to surround yourself with the most driven people who have similar goals and I surround myself with people who think big and bold and I believe friendships are the foundation for a truly powerful network.

I think exponentially. I believe in abundance, being courageous, and leading with empathy to help solve humanity's greatest challenges. I believe when we allow our minds to connect to diverse pathways we can turn the unimaginable into a reality.

One of my greatest challenges was walking to Mount Everest from Kathmandu, it changed me, the pathways from my mind to my heart were developed. Now I challenge myself with local adventures, ocean adventures, health and fitness adventures, and learning adventures. My pathways are always changing.

How can you be your change? What pathway can you create that will impact the world?

My journey

When the dot-come revolution arrived I was curious. I understood the disruption and I very quickly discovered I had an obsession with technology for tackling seemingly impossible challenges. I joined the contrarians, the companies that do not simply follow the crowd or the quick buck, but rather looked for ways to stand out.

My global vision

With the soul of a hippy, I believe that we can all impact the world and I am on a mission to create local moments filled with radical breakthroughs and world-changing surprises.

My intuition

My attention turned to hyper personalisation and the fantasy of advertising and marketing. I rode the wave when the trilogy of advertising ruled the roost print, television and radio and the internet ruled the roost. I diversified, became a digital marketer, a content marketer, I courageously opened up my own company. I became an entrepreneur, an innovator. I was curious about data and the telling trail that it left. What we like, what we dislike, our desires, our friends, who they are, and what they like.

And now more than a decade later, I am living in my "happy place" and my momentum shifted to creating pathways.

And this is where I ask you to take a moment with me. Close your eyes and ask yourself this question.

How can you be your change? What pathway can you create that will impact the world?

My Commitments

Humanity - quality education, gender equality, decent work and economic growth, industry and innovation development, sustainable communities and responsible consumption and production are just some of the UN Sustainable Development Goals that I commit to.

She has helped us to nail our problems before we scale our business. Without Mia’s amazing capacity to be able to listen, understand and problem solve on the spot, we believe our business would not have mentally nor financially recovered from the recent bushfires and Covid-19.
