I’ve had a long and distinguished career mainly in the private sector in senior management roles, including as General Manager. In addition, there has also been experience in the public sector, both as a consultant, and as a Chief Executve. My knowledge is from big global corporates to small local startups. My perspective on the business world has been wide-ranging and varied. I’ve witnessed the evolution of both major service and product-based businesses throughout my career. I’m also a dedicated father of five wonderful children, a grandfather, business mentor and friend.
It’s safe to say I’ve dedicated my life to seeking out high performance targets. From my start in professional international Tennis, with a tennis scholarship to the USA, and All-American consideration combined with a guernsey in the Australian Junior Davis cup Team. Plus playing for Australia in 2014 at the World Seniors titles in Türkiye, to my Ph.D at the University of Oklahoma, USA and post-doctoral work at Stanford University. I’ve been lucky enough to consult with some of the best business minds at Eastman Kodak, Pacific Dunlop, Repco, BHP, Telstra, Shell, BHP and Wesfarmers.
It’s these unique experiences throughout my life that have shaped the person I am today, and my ability to reach audiences as an insightful financial adviser to High Net worth Individuals, dynamic commentator and powerful keynote speaker.
