“Our greatest gift lies next to our deepest wound.”
Ronsley Vaz is founder of We Are Podcast and award-winning marketing agency Amplify. As the world's first audio marketing agency, Amplify helps clients like Darin Olien, Gary Vaynerchuk, and leaders from pretty much any industry you can think of, to stand out in an increasingly noisy marketplace.
Ronsley’s first book Amplify has helped countless companies, associations, and individuals to raise their voice, boost their brand, and grow their business. Through his range of podcasts, including Should I Start a Podcast and The Psychology of Entrepreneurship, Ronsley has been downloaded and listened to more than five million times in 133 countries.
He’s spoken on stages all over the world and his TED talk ‘The Perfect Recipe for a Deep Conversation’ encourages real connection and inspires people to unite behind a common good.
But all these successes were preceded by one primary defining failure.
In 2013, as a qualified chef, Ronsley leveraged his passion for cooking to open an Indian-Portuguese restaurant in Brisbane, Australia. Yet, shortly after – and which coincided with him being just three months into marriage – the restaurant shut, with almost half a million dollars in debt.
After his dreams went up in smoke, Ronsley hopped back on the entrepreneurial saddle and launched the Uber for cheffing — connecting professionally trained chefs with people who wanted prepared meals conveniently available in their own fridge. To promote that venture, he started a podcast Bond Appetit, which surpassed one million listeners in just four months. Since then, his driving force has become sharing the power of podcasting to help business owners grow.
