As one of Australia's top innovators, Shane Yeend has been to every extreme of entrepreneurship.
After dropping out of school, Shane started shooting wedding videos and before the teenager knew it he was working with the biggest names in Australian media.
Awarded Australian Entrepreneur of the Year in 2007, Shane founded global entertainment empire Imagination in Adelaide, working with global brands such as Disney and Hasbro, and generating multi-millions in revenue. He even built Pepsi's first website.
He has reached great heights, but also deep lows. The GFC in 2008 led to missing out on a $180 million pay day, staff lay-offs and a bitter battle with the banks.
In this broad discussion, we also cover:
- Personal development and lessons learned
- Lessons about entrepreneurship and business for kids
- The rise of Drones, and Shane's company Helistar
- Much more!
It was our longest Rooster Radio interview, and yet we only just scraped the surface of Shane's unbelievable story.
