Strangely he didn’t study business or marketing at QUT, instead he studied podiatry, however the following year he did enrol in a business degree at Griffith University, Gold Coast Campus.
Since then he has opened, sold, taken over and relocated well over 20 podiatry businesses throughout Queensland, and at one stage ran multiple podiatry and footwear businesses 1800km apart, proving great systems must come first and then a great business will follow.
He has won multiple business awards, most notably the Queensland Telstra Business Award, he's a Fellow Member of the Institute of Managers & Leaders Australia and graduate of the Entrepreneurs Success Program.
Tyson currently mentors other small business owners with an emphasis on helping them develop long-term marketing strategies and business systems to support those strategies.
If you’re looking for a professional speaker at your next conference, Tyson has spoken throughout Australia and overseas and he is renowned for keeping his audience engaged and entertained, but most importantly he educates his audience with real-life business experiences, not theory. (See his list of speaking topics - coming soon)
He has authored two business books, It’s No Secret There’s Money in Podiatry, released in September 2014 and It’s No Secret There’s Money in Small Business, released in October 2017, both best sellers on Amazon.
In August 2017 Tyson launched his podcast It’s No Secret with Dr T., which is aimed at small business owners who want to earn more, work less and enjoy what they do each day. He's also a regular guest on other podcast shows around the world.
At present Tyson lives in Cairns, Queensland and is currently working on his third book, second podcast show and his upcoming 2018 workshops.
