Personal Brands We Love: Wayne Gosling

4 June, 2014

Wayne GoslingWayne Gosling, joint CEO of Groupon SA is not a man to sit about. He knows what he wants and his tenacity helps him get it. Motivated by starting and selling businesses, Wayne sold his second company, Twangoo, to Groupon only 125 days after opening its doors – and then took it from zero to millions in 3 short years. No slouch, we say.

What makes this personal brand great?

  1. Optimism. Wayne sees the glass as half-full, AND the potential for it to be overflowing.
  2. He’s a motivator. He has an internal passion and enthusiasm that energises and inspires his team.
  3. Mechanics. Wayne can develop systems and processes that turn the sometimes-chaotic world of start-ups into slick, efficient execution machines.

As someone with unlimited energy Wayne loves change, and is stimulated by new ideas and moving forward; he’s always looking at what’s next in the pipeline and how to execute it exceptionally. Wayne also generously shares his resources with startups whether it’s through funding, mentoring support or advice.

Wayne is going places. Keep an eye on him.
