About Brandon Dawson

A respected and sought-after lecturer and CEO advisor on entrepreneurship, leadership and business-building strategies, Brandon Dawson specialises in creating value for businesses operating in industries with poor single- or multi-unit economies of scale, industry consolidation or increasing large-scale competition.

Brandon believes that people move businesses, and therefore is dedicated to helping his clients, colleagues and employees achieve their personal, professional and financial goals.

As the founder of Audigy Group, Brandon grew the company from $500,000 in revenue in 2005 to approximately $35 million in 2016, when he sold it for $151 million. That’s 77 times EBITDA on the basis of its model for fast, scalable business growth, which incorporates unique business operations methodologies, technology platforms and leadership and performance development programs.
