A Telstra Sustainability & Innovation State Finalist and multi-award winner for customer-facing initiatives, Adorn founder Briony Kennedy is the embodiment of purpose in all aspects of her life. She serves as an entrepreneur, environmental activist, and a mother of three boys.

With over 25 years of experience in both business and beauty, she deeply understands the importance of premium beauty products that are also kind, ethical, and guilt-free.

In 2008, she pioneered refillable beauty products without single-use boxes or plastic seals through the launch of the Adorn brand. This was a bold move in a traditionally wasteful industry.

Since then, Briony has helped prevent over 18 tonnes of beauty waste from ending up in landfills, and has avoided using unnecessary planet resources and carbon emissions to produce new packaging.

As Australia's first refillable beauty brand and the commitment Briony has given to her customers, Adorn has become a household name for many skincare and makeup devotees.


Briony is a sought-after speaker at conferences, trade shows, networking events, and industry symposiums due to her natural and relatable presenting style.

Whether she's being interviewed, participating in a panel, or delivering a keynote speech, she feels at ease speaking in front of audiences and sharing her extensive experience in the beauty industry, e-commerce, branding, and personalisation.
