Steve is a passionate pilot, travel entrepreneur and wander addict who spends time bringing ideas to life across different sectors including travel, fitness and not-for-profit. Steve has founded a number of successful companies – the key, he reckons, is to continue to be excited and motivated by change. He’s on a mission empowering other like-minded people, young and old to wander, wonder and be curious about where their true hearts desires may lead them. Steve’s involvements have included:
- Founder of Unleashed Travel
- BRW Fast 100 AU
- Founder of Fernatics Sports & Events
- Director of Spirit of Sharing
- Director of Perform Better Australia & NZ
After experiencing burn out as a young entrepreneur with a young family, Steve found flying helped him take control and take flight, so he is passionate about empowering people around the world to do the same with a program he is runway testing “wander pilot”. Steve is a talented creative strategist who activates change and encourages people to think outside the square.
We open minds for transformational change. We bring a curious and playful approach to activating change. We curate the wonder tribe to unleash innovation, creativity and positive change in your business.
The Wonder and Wander Foundation was established to invest in and inspire entrepreneurial and creative thinking in the world’s future leaders.
We are born curious and creative and willing to try, play and take risks – but over time we are programmed to conform, do things a certain way and the inner wonder and wander of children decreases over time (and has been found to be almost non-existent as kids become teenagers and then adults).
We are the bridge and connection of the wisdom, energy and success of our alumni, partners and contributors and the future leaders of our world.
We create incubation challenges, Wonder and Wander Inspiration / creativity pop ups, design thinking challenges and curriculum to inspire the Wonder and Wander spirit in our youth and future leaders. We inspire the soft skills and imagination skills that are often neglected in formal curriculum due to funding and focus.
We will design the first W&W Foundation Program at the Evolve Leadership Summit in Bali this October 2019 which will also be executed and supported by our founding alumni, partners and contributors.
