In 2013, armed with a video camera, Nigel Collin set off on an initiative to travel throughout Australia, solo on his motorbike, to discover ingenious Australians and share their stories. His quest was to inspire the ideas of a nation and led to the founding of ‘Ingenious Oz Project’. In 2014, as an ambassador of Start-up Australia, he interviewed over 50 of Australia’s top entrepreneurs and business leaders.
From this reseach he saw patterns in what success people do and how they do it. In 2015 Nigel changed the company name to 'Game of Inches' from the previous 'Thinkativity' to be more inline with the system created.
Nigel created his first business at the age of twenty and sold it at twenty-one. He then went on to build Absurd Entertainment, one of Australia largest entertainment design companies. He worked extensively on the 2000 Olympic Games, was entertainment advisor at the 2000 Paralympic Games, and holds the accolade of being show director for Australia's largest ever corporate event in 2005. Having passed the baton by selling the Absurd in 2004, he moved into the world of consulting, advising his clients on implementing ideas and everyday innovation.
He has advised C-Suite executives, Ministers of Parliament and entrepreneurs in both public and private sectors. As an international speaker, he has presented his experience and expertise to organisations in myriad industries including IT, Franchise, Events, Marketing, Finance, Pharmaceuticals, Government and Telecommunications.
He is an alumni of the Disney Institute, a Ted-Xer, and author of three booksAs a speaker he is in demand both in Australia and overseas.
When not speaking, working with clients, writing or riding his motorcycle he spends his time between Sydney and the rural mid north coast of NSW with his family.
