A little about Andre

André is a $100m startup founder, brand visionary, adventurer, storyteller, and passionate thought leader on purpose, culture, growing tribes and being human. He talks openly about his own failures and the insights that have shaped him and built his success.

With a fascinating entrepreneurial career that includes dropping out of uni, a failed family business, an acting career in four out of five of Australia’s worst TV shows, a singing career that never transcended being lead singer in a One Hit Wonders covers band, a theatre company that imploded on its first production, two years on the phones in customer service, and a year-long kombi wine adventure around Australia…

André co-founded and built renowned online wine company Vinomofo from his garage into a $100m global wine retailer, renowned for their strong culture and brand, and their passionate tribe of mofos. In its 7-year history, Vinomofo has been awarded Deloitte’s Fastest Growth Company, Telstra Victorian Business of the Year, Online Retailer of the Year, AFR Most Successful Staff Engagement and one of the Great Places to Work Australia.

André has inspired, challenged, and moved audiences with his keynotes and workshops for some of the best companies and entrepreneurial conferences in the world, including Microsoft, Telstra, Westpac, Mercedes, Visa, Sunrise and Business Chicks.

In 2018, André launched Cult Tribal – a brand agency and software platform to transform organisations, align purpose and brand, unite tribes and change the culture of business.

André and his team are at the very forefront of what they do, and what they do is fiercely relevant and vital as organisations look to stand for something and create sustainable value for their customers, employees and the world.

Register for a 75-minute Office Hours session with André!

Office Hours are not usually 75-minutes long, however it sometimes takes 15 minutes just to get to know where you are and how someone can best support you. With this in mind, we’ve decided to make ours a little longer to make sure that you have the opportunity to dive in deep and get as much value as you can.

Sessions will be held on Thursdays March 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th. Please go ahead and follow the button below to go to the booking calendar.Scroll to these dates on the calendar, and you will see André’s available time slots. As these are free sessions and there are a limited number, we do ask that you protect this time and let us know if you are unable to make it.

How might we begin the year with clarity and focus?

As creatives, entrepreneurs, founders and business leaders we can be caught juggling many plates. Without a pause to catch ourselves as we enter the year, we might find ourselves spending energy and time on things that don’t necessarily align with our core goals and desired outcomes.

We’re excited to be bringing together Manoj from A–SPACE and Kaylene from StartUp Creative, to explore this question together, in-person.

For André it took twenty years, five failed businesses and three unsuccessful careers to build the overnight success that is $100m global online wine startup Vinomofo. To launch our month-long program with André, we’ll spend a night together to hear the real truth – the fears, the impact of being an entrepreneur on friends and family, the soul-searching. We’ll explore the personal tools to navigate failure, build resilience as an entrepreneur and find fulfillment. Join us for an exciting night to launch our program.

In modern marketing, you cannot afford to buy and churn attention, you must create a brand that stands for something and is a beacon that unites a tribe of people who care as deeply as you. People are holding organisations accountable and abandoning simply great products for great cultures and brands they align with.

André shares his insights from creating one of the most engaging wine brands in the world, and shows us how to align purpose, culture and brand, how to tell a story that people will care about and talk about. Join André to create a brand that sticks!

Hoyne in collaboration with Gather by United Co. are excited to invite you to join them for an exciting panel exploring the future of place.

Our traditional live/work/shop/play landscape has changed and to make a place successful and sustainable today, people must be at the heart of the design process (planning, architecture, interior design, landscaping).

Leading voices in urban development, architecture, government, placemaking and marketing will discuss how great destinations that achieve social and economic success are created.

We buy with emotion and justify with logic. So how do you create a brand and message that speaks to your audience’s emotion? What stories will you tell?
