‘Becoming Annie, The Biography of a Curious Woman’, by Dawn Bates, Releases August 1st, Against All Odds & Naysayers

Only 4 months after meeting, among countless setbacks and naysayers, living half a world apart, Dawn Bates & Annie Gibbins were curious enough to pull off the impossible task of quickly bringing biography to the marketplace.

Sydney, Australia – July 31, 2020 – Annie Gibbins has been championing others her entire adult life, giving back and consistently outperforming herself – with what some would agree are ridiculous goals and ideas. Her rise to the top of corporate Australia through transforming the healthcare industry and becoming a global name in the world of female empowerment hasn’t been an easy one, nor has the personal life of the woman behind the smile and the laughter. Her story, Becoming Annie, The Biography of a Curious Woman, is being released to the public on August 1, a short 4 months after meeting her publisher, Dawn Bates. Becoming Annie can be purchased online at

Gibbons’ story is a testimony to mothers, daughters and granddaughters around the globe. Gibbins is an internationally recognised CEO, Thought Leader, Speaker, Podcast Host, Author and Founder of Lipstick Consulting. She is also a wife, mother, grandmother, adventurer, fundraiser, storyteller, friend, cheerleader and heart warrior.

Gibbins’ academic and professional accolades over the past 30 years include growing and transforming health and education businesses across Australasia, a Master of Education, a Bachelor of Nursing, Lean Six Sigma, Cert. IV Fitness and a MAICD. All this has been achieved simultaneously with her career, as a mother of two sets of twins plus one more.

In Becoming Annie, Bates and Gibbins reveal how curiosity can bring out the best in you, and release you from a life of comparison, and deliver freedom.

Gibbins has experience in pushing personal and professional boundaries, innovative thinking, maximising synergistic opportunities and producing results that matter all come together in Becoming Annie, The Biography of a Curious Woman. Publishing her story with Bates was another push against naysayers. The duo persevered, drawn together by the curiosity factor of turning “impossible” into “I’m possible”.

“Annie asked me to be a ghostwriter for her autobiography, and I had composed myself from giggling,” says Bates. “I told her there was no way a woman such as her wanted an autobiography. Nothing less than a biography would do, and four months later I am here to share her story with the world.”

In addition to her work as a publisher, Bates has spoken at and appeared on a number of podcasts and spoken at business events including guest lecturing in Universities King’s College London and the American University in Cairo. She is booked to lead workshops, has appeared on Question Time and taken part in a documentary series with Channel 4.
