Event Details


Transforming your corporate experience into a highly profitable business


Don't risk your house, your relationship, your sanity like others do

Are you stuck in a career but want to set out on your own and build a business?


You need to be at our Keys to Success: Employee to Entrepreneur!


Do you have a great business in your belly, but not sure how you get it off the ground -- with the success it deserves?


Come and meet the people who every week help future business successes like you through a business growth process that gets your business off to a great start and also paves the path for amazing long-term results.



Challenge the experts on stage with your particular problem. Where are you stuck? What are you looking for? Why is success evading you? What's the big break you're seeking?


In many ways, we see people with significant experience from large organizations having the capability to launch businesses with all the odds working in their favour. Managerial experience, negotiating skills, competitive environment.


However, experience has also shown us the death rate of businesses started by entrepreneurs from a corporate background is near 100%. Don't become a statistic!


Are you stuck in a rut building your business?


Hit a plateau?


Find it hard to get started?


Don’t have the right support crew around?


On this evening we're lifting the veil to show you exactly what you've been missing. What you need to do to avoid the same pitfalls everybody else seems to fall into.


We'll also bring a couple of success stories on stage so you can hear it from people just like you.


Come and learn from the experts who can teach you that it’s not a matter of getting just a few things right. There are literally 100+ important success factors and chances are you don't know most of them.


Not only will you be able to meet these experts face to face, you will also find out what are the right next steps for you to take to get your business off to the right start it needs and you deserve. No matter the size of the empire you're building!



What is the format of the event?


First off a solid dose of learning: We show you what to do. The journey ahead. Why most businesses never succeed. How to leverage your special advantages.


Next: Food, drinks, and Networking. In a room full of entrepreneurially minded people you never know who you'll meet. Your next investor or your next collaborator? That's entirely up to you, but we will do our best to ensure you get introduced to the right people on the night.


Finally: The Panel. All those questions you've been searching for answers. Never quite sure who you can trust in the constantly shifting landscape of early stage business? We bring on stage some of the best, that you know you can rely on. Be brave and bring your toughest question to the panel--they like a challenge!



Who is on the panel and available for questions?


  • The Serial Entrepreneur. What does it take to keep launching new businesses? What does it take to understand which ones to keep, which ones to throw? What's the secret to launching with success with almost no investments required?

  • The Big Exit. What would you ask somebody who has already had a big exit? Why would he go right back and start another business? Learn first-hand how tough it can be to drive a business to big success and an exit.

  • The Super Mentor. Imagine working with somebody who has an enviable track record of having 100% of the people who come on his program achieve the success and outcomes they want. Is that what you want for yourself?

  • The Crowd-funding Ace. Nobody knows more about Crowdfunding--the question is... will it work for you?

  • The Secret sauce. It's not just what you know, but who you know. Meet one of Australia's top connectors. We can't reveal his identity yet—but you won't be disappointed.

  • The Pitch expert. What do you say? Is there a formula? How do you find the right people to pitch to—and what do you pitch for? And is pitching actually bad for you?

  • The Professional Adviser. Understand what numbers you show to get success. Get guidance on what works in your industry. Forecasting. Business is a numbers game, here's somebody who knows the game from the inside.
