Make Clever Happen – Featuring Dr Jason Fox

Achieving a clear and easy-to-measure goal is relatively easy—it’s when your goals are complex that things get challenging.

Especially if they require you to navigate unprecedented work through uncharted domains towards an uncertain future.

And let’s not forget: we live and work within an attention economy now—there are distractions aplenty.

Your fledging ideas may have no chance… Until now!

Join global award-winning keynote speaker, bestselling author and leadership advisor Dr Jason Fox for our Small Business Festival Launch.

Huzzah. Prepare and tremble, world!

For in this session, you’ll be equipped with the wit, skills and savvy to translate your inspired, intuitive reckoning into real and meaningful progress.

Set within the inspiring walls of Pt Leo Estate this event promises to be a journey into business insights like no other.

Our Quest Leader

Arch-Wizard of Ambiguity

Dr. Jason Fox is a wizard-philosopher masquerading as a motivational speaker and leadership advisor.

He works with clever teams seeking meaningful progress—beyond the default.

His many happy clients include the senior leadership teams of Fortune 500 companies around the world including Microsoft, HP, Red Bull, Cisco, Johnson & Johnson, Toyota, Honda, Sony and Salesforce, to other multinationals such as Beam Suntory, Vodafone, Tableau, Gartner, Xero, Bupa, Red Cross, Bulgari, Pandora, PWC, Ricoh, KPMG, The World Tourism Forum and The International Institute of Research (plus: university chancelleries, government agencies, software developers…)

Much of his work is as a leadership advisor to teams questing amidst complexity.

Jason has lectured at three universities (systems and behaviour) and is the bestselling author of The Game Changer and How to Lead a Quest. Despite his intentional ineptitude at any (and all) social media and marketing—his monthly ‘museletter’ is read by more than 11,000 leaders around the world.

In addition to serving as a leadership adviser, Dr. Fox is also a globally in-demand keynote speaker who works particularly well with senior leaders and sceptical audiences who have ‘seen it all before’. In 2016 he was awarded “Keynote Speaker of the Year” by Professional Speakers Australia (the highest honour of this craft).

Dr. Fox lives with an illustrator-veterinarian, a chihuahua named Snorri and a cat called π in an old chocolate factory in Melbourne, Australia. When not liberating the world from the delusion of progress, Jason enjoys partaking in extreme sports such as reading, sun-avoidance and coffee snobbery.
