Seeby Woodhouse: How to find fame, fortune and inner peace

Friday 4:20pm - 5:00pm, Keynote Presentation

Seeby Woodhouse initially rose to fame as he built Orcon, one of New Zealand's largest and most innovative ISPs, sold to Kordia for $24 Million in 2007.

The entrepreneur who famously lived on Weetbix and baked beans while he built Orcon suddenly had millions in the bank and a heap of spare time on his hands.

The next few years were a blur of Ferraris, mansions and partying around the world with both good times and bad, before founding business-based ISP Voyager. However the lifestyle took its toll and it wasn't until he spent a year travelling with life coach Tony Robbins and spent time with Guru Singh in India that he really found inner peace and balance.

In this talk Seeby will share his perspective on growing a business to national prominence from scratch - how he did it, what he learnt along the way, and how he'd do it if he was starting out again now.

And more importantly, how to find the energy and happiness from within to really take on life.

Founder, Orcon and Voyager

Seeby Woodhouse initially rose to fame as he built Orcon, one of New Zealand's largest and most innovative ISPs, sold to Kordia for $24 Million in 2007.

The entrepreneur who famously lived on Weetbix and baked beans while he built Orcon suddenly had millions in the bank and a heap of spare time on his hands.

The next few years were a blur of Ferraris, mansions and partying around the world with both good times and bad, before founding business-based ISP Voyager. However the lifestyle took its toll and it wasn't until he spent a year travelling with life coach Tony Robbins and spent time with Guru Singh in India that he really found inner peace and balance.

These days he is CEO of business-focused ISP Voyager and describes himself as a Travelling Entrepreneur.
