Hailey founded Cavill + Co in 1995 because she wanted a purposeful life and to be in charge of her own destiny. After a successful but unfulfilling 12 year corporate PR career in London, Hailey embarked on an 18-month back-packing adventure through Africa, India and Nepal and after what she had seen, she couldn’t step back into the glittering yet superficial world she had known.
After a few years with a leading UK non-profit, she arrived in Australia in 1994. Hailey was inspired by Anita Roddick who merged business with societal responsibility and built an empire from its potency.
Understanding the needs of both sides, inspired to make a contribution and make use of her marketing skills, Hailey saw an opportunity to become a matchmaker and formed Cavill + Co.
21 years and 43 partnerships later, Cavill + Co is proud to have played a part in reducing toddler drownings, enabling kids to seek help & mentoring, training more guide dogs, preserving the environment, funding kids’ research, changing the face of volunteering and raising awareness of critical social issues such as binge drinking, vision loss, depression, indigenous inequality & stroke.
These partnerships have enhanced corporate reputations, differentiated brands, inspired staff and customers and provided an emotive and values-driven point of difference.
Building purposeful profitable partnerships is what we do, what we’re very passionate about and what we’re good at.
View from the Cavill + Co office.
We run our business consistent with a set of values that were laid down at the start.
Keeping it real (tell it like it is)
Creative thinking and doing
Striving for excellence
Making a contribution
Leading the way
We operate from a 7-star rating eco home & office in the stunning town of Warburton in the Yarra Valley.
We seek our inspiration in nature not concrete walls. We travel when required and we’re big on skype and talking on the phone.
Our business is carbon-neutral, our power is mostly solar, we recycle or repurpose everything and the garden on our roof keeps us well insulated – and busy weeding!
If you think you're too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquitoAnita Roddick
We’re a small team – by choice. Deliberately staying small and boutique means we can offer an exceptional personal service at a fair price.
Being small means we are nimble and flexible, we can bring in the top experts when needed, we can choose who we work with, rather than being a slave to our overheads.
And for our clients, when you work with Cavill + Co, you get to work with the owner. We may be small but we think BIG and achieve huge things.

is very refreshing
I've always advised my clients to build a stand, not just a brand, and this is what Hailey is masterful at. She's run a successful business for 20 years, brokered 43 partnerships worth $35m, launched a world-first training Toolkit and has built a house worthy of Grand Designs.
