More about Paul Mead
Leader, Coach, Business Owner, Dad, Husband
I was bought up in a small town in NZ called Gisborne and left to join the Army once I finished school to go see the world! And that is what I did! Leading soldiers in Vanuatu on a construction project, Lebanon doing bomb disposal, Afghanistan leading an engineering team and finally posted to Darwin to support NZ’s efforts in Timor Leste.
Since starting out on my own in 2013, I have helped business owners and leaders increase their performance, and reach their true potential to become successful. The goal has always been to build teams of engaged staff with sustainable and profitable businesses. I have also found my own purpose again, no longer content to just have a J.O.B, but I am truly engaged in something that I am passionate about.
One of my other passions is the sport and recreation industry and you will also see me working with National Sporting Organisations. Our national sporting bodies are going through a huge transformation as the sport and leisure market becomes more competitive, and funding guidelines from Sport Australia changes. Much of my Art of Business Leadership framework aligns across this industry too.
So that is my story, to date anyway! Now living in Cairns, we enjoy the freedom that living in the tropics gives us. A great lifestyle, close to Asia, but still connected to the rest of Australia.
If you want help to build a better performing team and to increase your leadership potential then get in touch. I am always open to helping other leaders map out their journey for a successful future.
