About Paul Dunn in his own words:
I’m truly fortunate and grateful to have a reputation as a great ‘value-giving’, ‘inspiring’ and extraordinary speakers and mentors.
Conference Organisers hire me to get 3 things that are often missing at events:
* extraordinary insights
* stunning and memorable impact and, of course,
And people hire me as their mentor to fast-track them to dramatically different results.
I’m able to bring to each tailor-made presentation or session a vast depth of experience springing from my founding of The Results Corporation, Results Accountants’ Systems, the Accountants’ Boot Camp process and most recently, with Masami Sato, B1G1: Business for Good.
People often refer to me around the world as the Wizard of WOW (but when we connect, I’ll quickly let you know I have a new way of thinking about that).
I think it’s fair to say that every session I do changes lives — certainly that’s what people continue to say. And I suspect my (currently) 3 TEDx talks illustrate precisely why that is.
When we connect, I’ll explain that Purpose (or WHY) is critical. So it’s only fair to let you know mine right now. It’s this: I get up each morning to give businesses the power to change our lives.
My work as Chairman of Buy1GIVE1 (B1G1) – a unique ‘giving engine’ that connects you in a much deeper way to your team, yourself and your marketplace — underscores that.
I’m very privileged too to be surrounded by and connected to truly extraordinary individuals who are equally curious and ever-learning.
