PEEL CHAM­BER OF COM­MERCE

Mandurah Coastal Times - - LOCAL FOCUS -

HEAR from two in­no­va­tive and en­tre­pre­neur­ial peo­ple in busi­ness at Peel Cham­ber of Com­merce’s 2017 Fu­ture Proof Busi­ness Con­fer­ence.

Si­mon Grif­fiths is the CEO of Who Gives A Crap, a profit for pur­pose, en­vi­ron­men­tal­lyfriendly toi­let pa­per com­pany that uses 50 per cent of its prof­its to build toi­lets in the de­vel­op­ing world.

He is also the co-founder of She­been, Aus­tralia’s first not-for-profit bar which was in Mel­bourne’s CBD.

An en­tre­pre­neur and phi­lan­thropist, Si­mon was rec­og­nized by The Age’s Mel­bourne Mag­a­zine as one of Mel­bourne’s Top 100 Most In­flu­en­tial Peo­ple in 2011 and he was short­listed for Young Aus­tralian of the Year in 2013.

Nigel Quin­lan is an ex­pe­ri­enced de­signer and strate­gist with Naked Am­bi­tion.

A self-pro­claimed sci­ence, peo­ple and de­sign geek, he is cu­ri­ous about the chal­lenges that busi­nesses face and pas­sion­ate about how de­sign think­ing can help cut through the fog.

Nigel has cross-in­dus­try ex­pe­ri­ence, work­ing with com­pa­nies and or­gan­i­sa­tions to creatively solve prob­lems and his im­mer­sion in de­sign has armed him with the tools to ad­vo­cate, cre­ate and de­liver in de­sign think­ing.

Naked Am­bi­tion has helped a va­ri­ety of busi­nesses re-charge and re-wire for in­dus­try dis­rup­tion, in­clud­ing Cbus Su­per, Tel­stra, REA and BP.
