Warwick Fairfax is a trusted leadership adviser who helps people uncover their own unique path to more effective leadership through the learning power of story and an enlightening path of self-discovery.

Growing up in a prominent family-owned media business in Australia that he eventually led — and lost — Warwick has both witnessed and experienced the challenges of high-pressure, high-impact leadership. After losing the 150-year-old family business, Warwick examined not only his own shortcomings and losses, but also life principles and lessons he learned from family members that came before him and some of history’s greatest leaders. Warwick shares these insights to enable others to learn from their crucible moments and lead a life of significance that is rooted in who they are.

Warwick has lived in Australia, the UK, and the US. His career has spanned banking, aviation services, and the media, before becoming an executive coach and writer. He holds an undergraduate degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from Oxford University and earned his MBA from Harvard Business School. Warwick is an International Coach Federation (ICF) certified executive coach and is an Elder at Bay Area Community Church.

Warwick lives in Annapolis, Maryland, USA, with his wonderful wife, Gale. They have three great kids who are in the process of developing their own unique paths.
