Ashton is one of a rare breed when it comes to marketing speakers in that he’s actually out in the field applying his theories and working the tools with some of Australia’s largest brands every day. It comes from his understanding that the marketing field is changing so quickly that the only way to be constantly providing value to audiences is to be a part of the madness himself.
Ashton has spent the last 14 years working internationally on some of the world’s biggest brands, running million-dollar campaigns for billion-dollar brands based on his approach of Predatory Marketing — pinpointing how brands can grow by outsmarting their competitors. He’s a business owner and serial entrepreneur, always challenging, often controversial, and always focused on what gets results.
Ashton’s path to the stage was a somewhat unusual one. After graduating with a commerce/law degree, he turned his hand to street performing, TV presenting, stand-up comedy, film directing, and even literally ran away with the circus. Now that he has found his niche, he uses these past life skills to develop presentations that are a mix of theory, workshop, and Whose Line Is It Anyway — always relevant, topical, and entertaining.
Ashton was winner of TEC’s Best New Speaker award in 2012, received film awards, guest-lectured at leading universities, won creative and strategic recognition from his peers, brought marketing strategy together with digital technology, and was instrumental in developing Australia’s first mobile app. involved with a number of boards at an advisory level.
