Ronsley Vaz is an entrepreneur, speaker, author, marketer and founder of Amplify - Australia’s first audio marketing agency. Ronsley credits his business failures as the reason for his ultimate success.
Ronsley’s humility is obvious in his unwillingness to acknowledge the important role he plays as the Founder of a business for good. However, he does explain that because of his background he feels connected to many cultures and it is the dichotomy between cultures and countries that inspires him to continue making an impact.
In this episode, Ronsley takes an honest and pragmatic look at his foundations as an entrepreneur and takes us through the pain of walking away from a broken business. He talks in-depth about his passion for giving to A Voice for a Voice - an initiative that protects girls and women from the sex trafficking industry.

He talks about expanding his horizons through podcasts and how it was the unlikely catalyst for creating a successful enterprise. He also gives advice to those thinking about a foray into podcasting as part of their business marketing strategy.
In his unique, understated style Ronsley also opens up about what happens when a business goes wrong and what to do to bounce back.
