The Art of Strategy ft. Tony McGrath

Hello Hello Hello everyone and welcome to this week’s episode of The Art of Strategy Podcast!

Today we are going to deep dive into the business and personal sides of Tony McGrath.

A true Maverick through and through. And that’s not a title I throw around lightly. Being a maverick comes with heavy responsibility – and is a weight that I think Tony can carry with ease.

I believe that the true essence of a maverick is that they have this burning need to build something meaningful. Something that Tony has done his entire life.

From planting seeds to igniting fires.

Enriching culture.

Driving Collaboration.

Nourishing innovation.

He is everything a Maverick should be: Unconventional, Inspirational and in truth, a bit wild.

With four decades of life and leadership experience, he has been an elite athlete, a soldier, a banker, a corporate executive, an entrepreneur, a husband, a father, a mentor and friend and now the steward of a grand old dame – a arts and culture hub that is an immersive, experimental, hot house of creativity.

He is a living example of resilience and reinvention – he is a Maverick. He is Tony McGrath.

Today, I want you to sit back, kick off your shoes, buckle in for we are about to go on a WILD ride. One where we look inside what it takes to be Tony as he continues to be a catalyst for change.
