Pete Williams is an entrepreneur, advisor and marketer who Forbes recently called, “one entrepreneur today that every marketer should be modelling,” while Inc. describes him as, “a savvy marketing strategist.”
A Southern Region Finalist in the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Program, a Small Business ICON (Best-in-Class) Recipient, and an Australian Business Award Winner for Marketing Excellence, he is the co-founder of numerous businesses across varying industries—from telecommunications services to e-commerce.
Having been referred to as “Australia’s Richard Branson” in media publications, Pete first made a name for himself when, at age twenty-one, he sold Australia’s version of Yankee Stadium, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, for under $500—which you can read about in his first book, How to Turn Your Million-Dollar Idea Into a Reality (2007).
His latest book, Cadence, was born from the 7 Levers framework developed inside the Preneur Group projects and consulting clients. Pete is also a Professor of Practice at Deakin University, Australia.
