Thankyou Founder and Managing Director
Driven, resourceful and determined, Daniel Flynn is one of Australia’s most successful entrepreneurs under the age of 30. He is the founder and managing director of the social enterprise Thankyou, which has given more than $5.5 million to help end global poverty. Thankyou’s 50 products are stocked by major retailers in Australia and 100 per cent of profits go to funding water, sanitation, food and child and maternal health projects around the world. In nine short years, Thankyou has directly impacted the lives of 755, 338 people in 20 countries, including Australia. Daniel is also the author of best-selling book Chapter One – a book that tells the raw and real start-up story of Thankyou and is sold using an unorthodox ‘pay-what-you-want’ method. In a challenging publishing landscape, the book defied all odds by generating over $1.4 million in sales and selling over 55,000 copies in its launch month.
Daniel is the recipient of EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award (Southern Region) and Forbes Asia 30 Under 30 Social Entrepreneurs.
His big picture thinking is behind Thankyou’s disruptive marketing campaigns that have led to Thankyou products being stocked by Australia’s biggest retailers. Daniel has also received widespread media coverage for his unconventional approach to business and marketing. Daniel is an engaging and thought-provoking speaker who leaves his audience challenged to take on the impossible. His talks offer a blueprint for challenging the status quo and how to turn ideas into reality.
