In this episode I get a chance to talk to Scotty Schindler about success in business, how surfing and business can be one following the same strategy and using stories in sales and everyday life.
At its core, Scott’s career is a story of creativity, hard work and a love of Australian life. As CEO of ReNet, Scott presided over the growth of a start up business that began in 2000 with just 1 single property listing advertised. On Scotts’ retirement in 2017 ReNet managed over $1.125 Trillion Dollars ($1,125,771,059,045) in real estate across Australia and New Zealand by 5,000 real estate offices and some 15,000 real estate salespeople.
In complement to his role as CEO, Scott is also a highly sought-after public speaker, trainer and thought leader within Australia and around the world. A business mentor and sales trainer that can back up advice with proven results in his own life, Scott credits his ‘quintessentially Australian’ identity as a born optimist and clear-cut straight talker, as key to his success in this arena.
Alongside having represented and won for Australia at the World Surfing Titles, Scott also holds multiple surfing championships at all levels of amateur surfing. With an enduring belief that success in business and sport require dedication to the same qualities, Scott is also very proud of his work as a coach and trainer of WQS surfers and Aussie surfers in junior development.
When away from his work or sporting commitments, Scott spends time with his family, friends and is a proud supporter and sponsor of many local sporting groups.
