About Nigel

In 2013, armed with a video camera, Nigel set off on an initiative to travel throughout Australia, solo on his motorbike, to discover ingenious Australians and share their stories. Through ‘Ingenious Oz Project’, his quest was to inspire the ideas of a Nation and as an ambassador of Start-up Australia, he has interviewed hundreds of Australia’s top entrepreneurs and business leaders. These initiatives and the unique research they offered led Nigel to establish ‘Game of Inches Co’. An organisation committed to helping businesses grow through a tested and pragmatic process of small changes leading to big results.

He has advised C-Suite executives, Ministers of Parliament and entrepreneurs in both public and private sectors. As an international speaker, he has presented to organisations in myriad industries including IT, Franchise, Events, Marketing, Finance, Pharmaceuticals, Government and Telecommunications. He has spoken throughout the world including the US, Canada, UK, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

He is an alumni of the Disney Institute, a Ted-Xer, and author of three books. His latest being ‘Game of Inches; why small changes win big results’. He is regularly asked to comment to a range of media including TV, radio and print and is a regular contributor to Inside Small Business and Micenet publications. Having spent over 20 years in business events (both on and off the stage) he understands the importance of not just being engaging, but delivering practical and lasting outcomes.


If you want to inspire the audience at your next conference, AND get them to take action, you need to book an exceptional speaker. Nigel Collin is that  speaker. His message is simple. Business success is a game of inches and not a one-off moment. It’s making small, consistent changes that makes big happen.

Most people resist change because others try to inspire them with big, disruptive success stories from other businesses. It seems too big, too hard and too scary. But Nigel has made a lifetime’s study of businesses that achieve greatness one small, doable step at a time.

Australia has many wonderful business success stories that most Australians don’t know about. Nigel will share these with you and show you why his Game of Inches process is so successful.

  • Shift your mindset from explosive overnight success to constant step by step innovation.
