Nigel Collin's Biography

What if business growth and innovation don’t have to happen with a big breakout idea but can unfold by making small, consistent changes? Nigel’s message is simple. Business is a ‘Game of Inches’ and not a one off event.

 

99% of successes come from many small, practical steps rather than the single ‘Eureka’ idea. The big idea makes a good story in a speech, but it’s hard for delegates to incorporate into their everyday working lives. Ask your team to invent the next iPhone and they get paralysed by the pressure. Give them an achievable process for everyday small-scale innovation and they can act can achieve greatness.

 

Maestro of ‘The Game of Inches’ and Founder of ‘Ingenious Oz Project’, Nigel has interviewed 100’s of Australia’s top entrepreneurs and business leaders to reveal what it is they do in the areas of innovation, leadership and change.

Practical Lasting Engaging Selecting speakers can be difficult. There are lots to choose from and not all speakers create equal business results. Nigel understands the importance of not just being engaging, but delivering practical and lasting business benefits.

 

Nigel created his first business at the age of twenty and sold it at twenty one. He then went onto build Absurd Entertainment, one of Australia first and largest entertainment design companies. He worked extensively on the 2000 Olympics, was entertainment advisor at the Paralympics, grounds entertainment producer of the Sydney Royal Easter Show for 6 years and still holds the accolade of being show director for Australia's largest ever corporate event.

 

He is now Founder of 'Thinkativity' and Director of 'North Ryde Riding School’.

 

In 2013, armed with a video camera, Nigel set out on an initiative to travel throughout Australia, solo on his motorbike, to discover ingenious Australians and share their stories.  As Founder and CEO of Ingenious Oz Project, Nigel wanted to inspire the ideas of a Nation by discovering and documenting stories of ingenious. With original research and case studies gained by traveling throughout Australia, as well as his own experience working in the creative sector, he has unique insight into what it really takes to be innovative and drive growth through ingenious ideas. He believes innovation belongs to everyone, not just the leviathans of business, and has a passion for seeing people fulfill their ideas.

In 2014 as an ambassador of Start-up Australia he interviewed over 50 of Australia’s top entrepreneurs and business leaders. This unique research, along with his own business experience has given Nigel unique insights into profitable growth and offers an achievable process for every day innovation and improvement.

 

Nigel’s message is that business is a ‘Game of Inches’ and not a one off event. 99% of successes come from many small, practical steps rather than the single ‘Eureka’ idea. The big idea makes a good story in a speech, but it’s hard for delegates to incorporate into their everyday working lives.

 

Having now spent over 20 years in business events (both on and off the stage) he understands the importance of not just being engaging, but delivering practical and lasting business benefits. As a speaker he is in demand both in Australia and overseas

 

He has advised Ministers of Parliament, C-Suite executives, and entrepreneurs.  Organisations in a myriad of industries including IT, Franchise, Events, Marketing, Finance, Pharmaceuticals, Government and Telecommunications  have benefited from his experience and expertise.

 

He is an alumni of the Disney Institute, a Ted-Xer, and author of two books with a third titled "Game of Inches' released in May 2016.
