Phillip di Bella

Phillip di Bella started his business roasting coffee part time on a rented machine

In Australia, 30 per cent of all new businesses fail before their first year is finished leaving many budding entrepreneurs to pose the question, why do some succeed while others struggle to realise their dream?

The secret to business success is not as complicated as originally thought, says Phillip Di Bella. The controversial figure has been appointed to a number of Queensland Boards ad marketing authorities but was recently stripped of his Telstra 2014 Business of the Year award after an expletive filled tirade at the rugby.

His presentation “Entrepreneurial Intelligence is the result of two years of investigation into the formula that makes successful entrepreneurs tick. It is a formula based on Phillip Di Bella’s  personal business philosophies that saw him succeed with both Di Bella and My Crop to Cup and it is surprisingly simple.

By developing the formula, Phillip hopes to have articulated those philosophies in a way that is within reach of all budding entrepreneurs, as anyone who is taking the next step in developing or expanding their business.

At this event you will learn:

  • The 4 aspects that are part of Phillips’s successful business mantra
  • The tangible and intangible aspects of entrepreneurial thinking
  • An insight into what makes entrepreneurs successful

While Entrepreneurial Intelligence is not a how to guide for being a successful entrepreneur, Phillip will light the spark inside you to believe that, by applying his simple formula, you can put your mind to achieving business and entrepreneurial success. Phillip’s book “Entrepreneurial Intelligence” will be available for sale at this event.
