To become who you need to be, you need to stop doing what you’ve always done.

why work with me

You have hit a plateau, with the deep knowing that you have so much more potential within you that you just don’t know how to bring to life. 

What you have always done has gotten you to where you are now - successful “on paper”, yet unfulfilled, and feeling like something is “missing”.

It’s time for unconventional growth; to defy the conventional text book of how to succeed and reconnect with your true DNA in order to thrive in your business, in your career and your personal life.

As a kid at school, I was bullied daily and told I was “dumb”.

About me

I had trouble learning the conventional way at school and was later diagnosed with Dyslexia. I couldn’t let it define me, I just had to learn how to do things in an unconventional way. 

I spent 25 years in the corporate world. At different parts of my career, I climbed the ladder to become a C-Level Executive of a large global finance firm and CEO of a large Australian financial services firm.

I was responsible for multi-million dollar budgets and large international teams. I helped transform the organisation, enhanced the team culture, grew our network, and achieved bottom line growth, year after year.

Yet, whilst I was successful “on paper”, I was deeply unfulfilled. 

My wife, Wendy, went in for a double lung transplant and was told that she had less than a year to live. In a very short time, I moved from “global CEO” to carer.

This experience made me realise how important life is, that no matter how successful, influential and wealthy I am, if my life isn’t filled with doing what I love, with people I love, it isn't worth it. 

My philosophy

I want to make every day count and so do my clients. 

I’m not a conventional business growth coach and networking expert.

I’m a square peg in a round hole and a big advocate of the underdog.

I’m here to help ordinary people, like me, achieve extraordinary and meaningful outcomes, everyday. 

"Working with Gordon has been a challenging but rewarding experience. He is a straight talking, brutally honest business professional who held me accountable in my personal and business goals which I went on to achieve. He motivated me, believed in me and taught me to believe in myself in order to move forward. If you need help with achieving your business and personal goals - or just want someone to give you a good kick to move in the right direction, Gordon is most definitely your man!"

Zoe G, National Marketing Executive Manager


Gordon Jenkins is the humorous and straight-talking international authority on visibility and business growth.

He helps entrepreneurs and professionals breakthrough their plateau and is an accomplished entrepreneur, professional speaker, executive coach, motivator, and the international author of Network with Purpose – Transform Your Skills in 4 Simple Steps.

His ability to connect with diverse groups of people is both intriguing and compelling. He helps invisible go-getters become visible by networking with purpose, and improving their business strategies to achieve sustainable business growth and personal life goals.

Gordon’s success and that of his clients stems from the strong belief that it’s okay not to conform to the system, it’s refreshing to be different, and that being the square peg in the round hole is not a bad thing. He is the supporter of the underdog and his purpose is to help ordinary people achieve extraordinary and meaningful outcomes everyday.

Gordon Jenkins facilitates growth that aligns with individuals’ values and strengths to achieve success that is meaningful to them. He embraces living with purpose, passion, and maximising every opportunity and everyday to lead a full and rich life.

P.S. You’ll never see Gordon without Banfi The Duck who has become a symbol of hope and optimism through life’s challenges.
