Meet The Team

Renée Hasseldine

CEO & Founder

(she/her)

Renée is the awesome mum of two sensational kids. Her third baby is the Think RAPT system. Simply put, she is unequivocally passionate about enabling you to use visual models to have massive impact in your business.

Renée is a highly evolved, super-smart original. While she’s definitely one of a kind, to help you out, think Erin Brokovich (fights for justice), mixed with Thich Nhat Hanh (Zen Master), and throw in just a little Pink (superbly wicked) for good measure.

When it comes to extracting knowledge, skills, and experience out of thought leaders’ heads and turning it into pictures, Renée is a superstar. Her knack for extracting powerful ideas and transforming them into succinct, inspiring content is sheer brilliance. This is the core of the Think RAPT system, and it is a critical skill for any visionary who is ready to take their message to the world.

Renée is a committed advocate for the environment, the underdog and bulletproof coffee. Her enthusiasm for low budget vampire dramas is a little disturbing.

When you meet Renée, expect her take on things to be a little different and her expression to be unique. Both are authentic and spot on. Oh, and order your own piece of cake….

Renée is the best-selling author of Share Your Passion, co-host of The Business Playroom and host of the Leveraged & Loving It Podcast.

Stevie Schafer

General Manager A.K.A. DUNGEON MASTER

(they/them)

Stevie is the person who keeps this business running like a well-oiled machine. Stevie is responsible for ensuring that quality content consistently makes it out into the world, taking Renée’s core content and repurposing it like nobody’s business. And Stevie keeps Renée on track, which is a very serious undertaking!

Stevie is a person of many hidden talents – editing podcasts and videos, writing blogs, articles and newsletters and scheduling social media faster than the speed of light. Wonderfully, Stevie can anticipate what someone needs before they even realise they need it themselves. And if you can think it up, Stevie can make it happen. “Hmmm… I think I might start a podcast,” daydreams Renée. And before anyone else has had a chance to tell her “no”, Stevie has gone and made it happen. And oh my goodness can Stevie get a whole lot of stuff done in a fraction of the time a mere human can.

In addition to the super-human feats as a General Manager, Stevie is the servant of two cat overlords and also does the bidding of a preschooler… fuelled by coffee and something else that only Stevie has access to. I mean, how else can we explain that ridiculous level of productivity?

Downtime activities for Stevie include playing Dungeons & Dragons and video games. Is anyone surprised?

Sol Babas

admin support a.k.a. lifesaver

(she/her)

Sol speaks 5 languages, although you could say she’s had to learn a 6th since dealing with Renee’s colourful expressions! She has a Bachelor of Science, in Accounting, and is a brilliant team player. She also loves the beach and mountain hiking. Nature is her happy place. She also loves to bake and is a fan of romance and sci-fi movies.

Sol is in charge of making sure all the social media and event promotion happens consistently. She’s responsible for making sure we take all the necessary actions to get bums on seats at our events. She also takes care of all the book-keeping for the business. She gets stuff done and gives the rest of the team the support they need to get on with the work in their zones of genius. Her attention to detail is an essential skill in the team and we couldn’t do it all without her.

Melissa Love

Visual Model witch

(she/her)

Melissa Love is a surprise package. On the one hand she is a crazed St Kilda Saints fan and on the other she is an intuitive reader, healer and artist. She also loves her two fur babies (cats) Jasmine and Marley.

Melissa is in charge of working her magic and creating the visual models for our Authority Accelerator clients, efficiently and soulfully. Because that’s how she works. When you work with Renee to create your signature system, it will be Melissa’s handy work behind the scenes that turns your sketches into sexy models. 

Dea Huvonen

Client Success champion

(she/her)

Dea loves marketing and she’s a total people person! She has been in marketing for over 10 years both in her home country Estonia and in Australia. She’s lived in Australia for 8 years. Dea has a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Foreign Languages, with a Major in Marketing.

In her downtime, Dea loves reading, walking on the beach and riding a bike with her daughter. She also loves to dance. She started dancing when she was 6 years old and danced professionally for 20 years! 

Dea is also passionate about travelling. She enjoys exploring different countries and getting to know different cultures. In addition to English and Estonian Dea can also have a casual conversation in Spanish, Russian and German, a little bit also in Finnish and Italian! She is a woman of many talents.
