    Startup Consultant, Coach & Mentor

    Australia - Last active: 06/16/2014 - Tests: 3

As the Australian President for the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Alliance (G20YEA) and Director of Entrepreneurship for The Enterprise Network for Young Australians (ENYA), Jeremy advises world leaders on global best practice in policy and processes for business success with the intention of creating positive change & sustainability. Upon leaving school in 1999 Jeremy began a degree in psychology but was soon tempted, like many young people, by the lure of the party lifestyle. As time passed and the lights dimmed, he was confronted with a critical life changing decision, hitting a personal rock bottom. With the assistance of John Anderson, a valued mentor and friend who was then diagnosed with terminal cancer, Jeremy made the decision to follow John’s parting words and ‘make every step count’. Rather than giving up on life, he chose to overcome adversity, and build a life that has led him to ultimate success in finding his true purpose and passion. By the age of 20 Jeremy was managing his first start up business in the booming Australian juice bar trade, opening Australia’s number one Juice Station Outlet. In 2005, he went on to co-found a natural health company called RioLife which picked up various accolades, including winning Australia’s fastest growing small business 2010 for My Business Magazine. Jeremy is a TEDx speaker and has keynoted globally for G20YEA on the art of entrepreneurial thinking and leadership at international economic forums such as the Junior Chamber International (JCI) global partnerships summit in NYC and The Commonwealth Asian Alliance of Young Entrepreneurs (CAAYE) summit in Sri Lanka. He speaks at United Nations expert group meetings on youth and entrepreneurship, won “The search for Australia’s top young entrepreneur” at Australia’s largest convention for young entrepreneurs in September 2011, and featured in the Shoestring Media 2012 Young & Influential list. His book “From Idea to Start-Up” assists entrepreneurs to implement processes to create a vision and execute a dream. “I met Jeremy in February 2012, when he conducted a workshop as part of the Young Entrepreneur Mentoring program that I found extremely valuable and beneficial. Jeremy demonstrated a high degree of expertise, his presentation was clear and easy to follow” Orsi Parkanyi, Founder & CEO, Women as Entrepreneurs “Jeremy, what can I say but are one of the most energetic, easy to deal with, creative, and innovative business men I have come across” Jacob Galea, Director, G Corp Australia Pty Ltd
