FEAR KEEPS MOST WESTERN BUSINESS AWAY and that's exactly how the establishment wants it!
I'm a New Zealand born Entrepreneur, Investor, Marketing Geek, and Business Coach. I've been hustling and growing businesses for the past 20 years in the Asia Pacific region.
I’ve achieved success within multinational sales, marketing and media corporations and been through the process of starting, building and selling businesses in Singapore, Taiwan, Australia and New Zealand.
In the process of starting, building and selling businesses, I’ve used a gazillion tools and engaged teams of employees and virtual staff and resources. I'm now Head of Growth [Insert more Buzzwords here] and am the Founder of Hanson Ventures. I also invest in start-up and early stage brands in Australasia.
The brands I've worked at, invested in or developed include; Hyotts Media, Remington Pitney Bowes, TNT, AsiaSports, Sportsline, SkateSports, Skateline, BodyExpress, TryOlli, Supply Chain Solutions, People and Tasks, Whale Swim Adventures.
When not online, I'll be skating, skateboarding, cycling, hiking, swimming otherwise, kicking around with the kids and/or indulging his love for seeing new places around Asia or New Zealand.
