A little about Troy I love to present… My passion is connecting inventors and entrepreneurs to a sense of purpose whilst helping them to commercialise their ideas! Finding passion and turning that into a commercialised product I feel is the greatest gift that you can give someone and the greatest gift that we can give the world. My 2 passions – purpose and turning ideas into reality (start-up business and innovation) is what I love to present on... Successful in business and over 8 years experience in public speaking, life seems a different from my humble beginnings... Growing up on a farm from a very young age taught me the value of doing the tough jobs and the desire to not to have to be the guy doing them forever. It inspired me to continue a life of education, firstly an associate Diploma in Business – hospitality services. Then a bachelor of business – Marketing. This inspired a number of start-up businesses including an online travel website which I built and managed for 6 years before selling for over a quarter of a million dollars. Since then I have furthered my education studying a Masters of Applied Innovation and Entrepreneurship and launching my latest venture “theSPACE”. A hub which brings together people with ideas, skills and resources so that we can more effectively commercialise opportunities. Studying thought leaders from around the world I use the latest best practice including lean start up philosophy and design lead innovation to assist people to more effectively commercialise their ideas. My strengths as a presenter is my ability to inspire and educate whilst at the same time giving people radical permission to break free of limitations and go after their dreams.

Troy as a key presenter at Board Connect Workshop Troy Haines was a key presenter at BoardConnect’s Cairns workshop on entrepreneurship for not-for-profit organisations in May 2013. Troy gave a stimulating and thoughtful talk which was well-targeted for the participants, and which sparked useful lines of discussion. Troy’s approach was creative, he was well prepared, and an effective communicator – and best of all, Troy’s contribution was grounded in real-world experience – not management theory.
