George McEncroe is the CEO and founder of Shebah, Australia’s ridesharing service for women. While trying to safely get her four kids where they needed to go and support her family as a single mum, she came up with an idea for a business: ridesharing that allowed an all-women fleet of drivers to earn income whenever suited them, and that provided worry-free transport for women and children. Now that she’s turned her idea into a reality, she’s added CEO to the list of roles on her resumé, which include stand-up comedian, breakfast radio host, ABC producer and more.
George started her career in comedy after becoming a Victorian Finalist for Raw Comedy. Her debut one-woman show for Melbourne International Comedy Festival won her a Best New-Comer nomination. George has appeared on Spicks and Specks, Can of Worms and is a regular guest co-host on The Circle. She can be heard on 3AW, 774 and Radio Australia as well as occasionally popping up on Triple R.
