What is Corporate Entrepreneurship?
Corporate Entrepreneurship is about uncovering hidden value within your organisation using Entrepreneurial Skills and Mindset.
Inspire Corporate Entrepreneurship
Modern companies embrace Entrepreneurial Thinking to inspire creativity, innovation and solve problems. As a Corporate Entrepreneurship Consultant I guide visionary Leaders & Management Teams who want their Organisation to be more Entrepreneurial, but are constrained by traditional process and culture.
Most organisations have Entrepreneurial Thinkers within them. These Entrepreneurs are lying dormant, waiting for opportunities to add business value. They just need to be uncovered, developed and supported to achieve tangible outcomes.
My Entrepreneurial framework and programs build upon existing leadership and innovation programs and take the frustration out of building Entrepreneurial capability inside an organisation.
This is achieved in 3 phases.
Build Corporate Entrepreneurship Capability
Goal: Inspire & Educate
Not everyone in your organisation might be excited to embrace Entrepreneurial Thinking or even understand it.
To give the project the best chance of success, during this phase we look at educating your people through a high energy inspiring presentation called “The Entrepreneurial Advantage”.
The presentation includes real world case studies on how Entrepreneurial Thinking has unlocked hidden business value in larger organisations. It’s tailored to each organisation to ensure relevance.
Using our collaborative consultation approach, we are also able to uncover potential barriers to implementation and potential areas for a high chance of success.
Goal: Equip with Skills
When we’ve uncovered your Entrepreneurial Thinkers we train them in our 2-day live immersion Entrepreneurial Skills Masterclass that includes decision making, presentation & communciation, innovation and business commercialisation skills.
To maximise ROI all training is specifically tailored to the organisation to solve existing challenges – so participants are learning how an Entrepreneur would solve they problems they are already familiar with.
Goal: Empower & Support
After training, Entrepreneurs return to their individual business units / projects and execute what they’ve learned. At this stage our role is to support them through individual coaching and educational resources to ensure they master the techniques and achieve results.

The Entrepreneurial Advantage:

Entrepreneurship isn’t just about starting a business and making money. The skills and mindset of an Entrepreneur allow them to solve problems under a variety of circumstances and once mastered Entrepreneurial Thinking can be applied everywhere.
In this high energy edu-taining presentation, AJ examines the thinking framework of Entrepreneurial legends Elon Musk and Richard Branson and walks participants through some of their key challenges using the framework. At the end of the presentation, participants feel inspired and empowered to solve their challenges because they have organised them into manageable categories by using the framework.
AJ knows what it means to be an Entrepreneur. When he was 7 years old he started a neighbourhood newspaper; at 14 he started a website development business and at 23, AJ gave up secure full time employment to pursue a life long dream of running his own consulting firm. He continues to work there today as the Director of Accelera, a consulting firm that helps businesses accelerate their growth using unconventional Entrepreneurial tactics.
Originally from Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia, some of AJ’s other achievements include:
- Creating the NT’s first Technology Training Centre for small business owners
- Founding Young Entrepreneurz Day , a one day training program that teaches teenagers how to start and run their own business
- Organising and delivering a 10-gig international speaking tour from scratch without any contacts by using Entrepreneurial tactics
As a result of his Entrepreneurial leadership, AJ was recognised as the NT Young Achiever of the Year in 2008.
