Event description


Known as one of Australia’s favourite sharks on Shark Tank, Dr Glen Richards’ entrepreneurial journey began at 27, when he bought a small vet practice in Townsville.

Over the next decade, he built five vet clinics, a pet store in Townsville and two vet hospitals in China.

This growing empire eventually became Greencross, which now operates more than 160 vet hospitals across Australia and New Zealand and boasts an annual turnover of more than $800 million.

What it took, Richards said, was a sense of discipline and focus – two things that can be, he admitted, quite hard for entrepreneurs to get a handle on.

“What we see in a lot of entrepreneurs, and I was probably similar, is that to some degree we’re very forward thinking, we’re quite innovative in the way we approach life, and we’re quite competitive. We’re constantly looking at ways to grow the business, and sometimes that can hijack the rest of the team,” Richards explained.

“A lot of entrepreneurs are not focused enough on the key things they need to get where they need to. Quite simply, they’re chasing a lot of shiny things and thinking that will help grow the business, but what it does is dilute the resources of the company, the time and money that you do have.”


During this masterclass Glen and his team will share the secret business growth formula on how he successfully grows his companies, so that more Australian entrepreneurs can do the same. And yes! This is the same business growth formula used by Naomi Simson from REDBALLOON and Aussie juggernaut ATLASSIAN. You will learn in this class HOW they grow their companies.

This jam-packed masterclass is guided by expert facilitators:

  • Anna Samios, internationally recognised, award-winning and certified Scaling Up Coach,
  • Scaling Up cash chapter co-author, finance brain and business guru Alan Miltz;


  • Shark Tank’s Dr. Glen Richards, Founding Managing Director (retired) of Greencross Limited.

Glen applied this Business Growth framework to scale Greencross from a one vet clinic in Townsville to the ASX 200 company it is today with an annual turnover of over $800m.
