From humble beginnings growing up as an orphan, to global entrepreneur, keynote presenter and international bestselling author, Andrew Griffiths is a powerful inspiration to business owners around the world.
It has been almost 20 years since Andrew’s first book ‘101 Ways to Market Your Business’ first hit the shelves. The way we do business has evolved furiously during this time – in an age where we are drowning in information but thirsty for wisdom, Andrew now has 12 bestselling titles which are sold in over 60 countries.
This is clearly testament to the fact that he continues to offer relevant advice as an author and business commentator.
Starting life as an orphan in Western Australia and growing up all too quickly in the seedy red light district of Perth, Andrew learned to become a survivor. The lessons learned in his battle for survival – in life and in business – have made him one of the most successful and highly sought after authorities in the small business and entrepreneurial space.
As a keynote presenter, Andrew’s authenticity is one of his greatest assets. He has the rare ability to hold a mirror up to people and show them the metaphoric parsley stuck in their teeth, with unapologetic honesty and a quick wit. Andrew imparts wisdom generously, but with clear expectations – he doesn’t just want to leave a warm and fuzzy lasting impression on his audience, he wants to have a lasting impact on the way they choose to live, work and do business as a result of what they have learned.
He is a bestselling business author and presenter not just because his personal story is moving and his narrative is unexpectedly humorous, or because he is exceptional at breaking complex issues down into bite sized pieces (although that certainly helps).
After 30 years as a business owner in industries as diverse as tourism, advertising, retail and consulting, he has been there and done it and paid close attention to what works and what doesn’t.
Andrew’s advice is a combination of street smart wisdom, practical concepts and productive triggers, derived from the hard learned lessons in his own trial and error, as well as years of close observation and identification of the characteristics shared by the uber successful.
