John Elliott – The pursuit of profits with a purpose

John Elliott started Elliott Insurance Brokers in 2008 which has now been one of the highest awarded Insurance Brokers in Australia featured in the BRW Fast 100 2014 & 2015 and ranked in the Top 10 brokerages in Australia since 2013.  During the peak momentum of the company development, the focus started to shift to the personal, environmental and social impact that the pursuit of growth and profit was having.  Looking through at all aspects of his personal and business life John began to assess the sustainability of the direction things were heading and could see this was not a path that could be maintained into the future.

Integral changes have been introduced across the board, and a new pursuit was born.  The pursuit of profits with a purpose.  Dispelling the myth that committing to the sustainability of our business, our planet and our population make us uncompetitive, Elliott Insurance Brokers have been able to create an impact on thousands of lives both locally and abroad, and have still maintained their Top 10 Insurance Brokerage ranking in 2016.  Sharing his journey as he experiences it, you can learn the key questions to ask of yourself, and your business, to ensure your success can create a positive social impact that will be remembered by the generations that come after us as you design your own legacy.
