Graeme’s life story is extraordinary. So much so that Channel 2’s Australian Story called him the Comeback King. From the very lows life has to offer; Graeme has gone onto become one of Australia's leading entrepreneurs. In 1997 after 2 years of heartbreak and tortuous negotiation he pulled off what most said was the impossible, the first ever World Masters of Business. Over 20,000 Australians heard for the first time ever Lee Iacocca, the former President of Ford and Chrysler worldwide and General Norman Schwarzkopf, legendary leader of the allies In the Gulf War. This mega event returned a profit in excess of $1,200,000.
In 1999 following 2 years of negotiating with the Russians, Graeme hosted the first ever trip to Australia by Mikhail Gorbachev, the Nobel peace prize-winner and former head of the USSR; and in 2000 after 29 no’s and 4 years of trying, he pulled of what he says was his greatest coup when he signed Nelson Mandela and Rubin Hurricane Carter to come to Australia for the first ever World Reconciliation Day.
Graeme is also the author of 3 best selling books Never Give Up, Inspirational Brainfood and in 2005 his customer service book “Stop Sucking on Lemons”.
