Fitness-driven people-person and entrepreneur by nature Damien Dau is on a mission to facilitate a world of personal and business evolution for the tirelessly active and healthy, and those looking to get inspired.
It would be an understatement to say that his career portfolio is jam packed, starting with a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Sports Management and Marketing at Griffith University, Damien cut his teeth in national roles with world beating businesses Nike and Adidas, before sliding a Financial Planning degree into his kit and starting what would rapidly become an unpredictable and fast paced chapter in the form of his own business, aged 30.
Damien co-founded and became Chief Operating Officer and Chief Information Officer for a major national education company, one that grew in an almost unprecedented nature to a value of over $600 million AUD in five 'high-voltage' and 'learnings-heavy' years. As if that wasn't enough to quell the burning need for action, Damien also held pivotal roles across a number of technology based startups and well known existing major Australian brands.
Following a white-knuckled ride of unique corporate experience, Damien - a self confessed fitness fanatic, who has completed numerous Ironman races including the gruelling Hawaiian Ironman - decided to return to his first loves; sport, fitness, travel and business.
He and wife Claudine joined a long-established and respected Australian-based Sports Consultancy company, focusing their energy on sports and travel event management and consultancy which included major events such as the Hawaii Ironman, New York and London Marathons, the Tour de France and more.
Damien’s innate drive to encourage others to extract their own personal growth and his life long experience as a competing athlete opened his eyes to the exciting possibility of using simple and high value technology to connect a wider audience to be more active, from this, ActivePlace was born.
Damien is from inland Western Australia, grew up in Australia and now lives in Southern California. A father of 3 boys, Damien is passionate about contributing to the environment and humanity by promoting movement, connection and growth. Activeplace.com
