Bill Withers has a passion for organisational resilience. In 2013 he founded ADAPT by Design to address the many challenges business owners face, specifically in the SME sector.
Over 22 years, Bill built a software company called acQuire, servicing the global mining industry. Because of the boom and bust nature of mining, he discovered the need for a total systems approach to building business to ensure resilience.
Bill has deep empathy for entrepreneurs and values 'having a fair go' in life. He enjoys coaching and mentoring others so that they too can meet their aspirations.
Bill has won numerous awards in his time as a business owner, including Austmine Champion of Innovation Award, Best SME Succession Plan and Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award (Technology and Emerging Industries).
