Paul is an engineer by training but he soon discovered people were more interesting than “things.” He began his career in Australia at Hewlett Packard where he was one of just ten people in the Australian start up of the company. Paul wrote some innovative software that became the basis for one of Australia’s early technological successes—Hartley Computer. Paul was the marketing genius behind the company growing globally to a $23 million enterprise.
In 1980 Paul decided that his real love was marketing AND speaking so he formed The Results Corporation (TRC). He grew that to a $20 million company serving 23,000 businesses. All told, Paul’s audio and video programs are now in use by over 156,000 businesses around the world.
In 1992 Paul formed Results Accountants’ Systems (RAS) teaching Accountants in Public Practice how to leverage their skills to create far better businesses for their clients. By the year 2000, the company was serving over 3500 practices and their clients worldwide—it became the largest network of leading-edge accountants yet seen in the world.
In 2000, Paul sold his interest in RAS to mentor his many friends and clients to give them far more successful businesses. His second book (co-authored with Ron Baker), The Firm of the Future, launched in the US market in April 2003 and is now regarded as a standard text for professional service firms.
Now Paul helps create successful businesses around the world and is passionate about giving back to social causes to increase the level of joy in our world. He now serves as chairman of the revolutionary Buy1GIVE1 organisation, making giving an effortless habit and making a huge impact in our world in a totally new way.
He is one of the most inspiring and stimulating speakers you’ve ever experienced. In a heartbeat, audiences ‘get’ why he’s now known around the world as ‘the Wizard of WOW.’ He always moves his audience to new levels of understanding and action.
Paul spends two thirds of each year travelling. He clocks up an average of 1 million 200 thousand kilometres in the air each year (and his baggage does nearly 3 million kilometres)!
