Disrupting Industry - What horse racing, school fees, and accountancy have in common. Electra Business After 5
How does a boy from Dannevirke return just shy of one million dollars to parents around the country, change the game in accountancy, and recruit over 14,500 people into the struggling industry of horse racing - all before the age of 31?
Join Luke Kemeys at the Electra Business After 5 in October to hear how he’s used common sense and disruptive thinking to challenge and change the spaces he works in.
Luke Kemeys is a qualified Chartered Accountant and the Director of accountancy firm nextAdvisory, and co-founder of online platform, SchoolRebates, where thousands of parents across New Zealand are able to claim back their school donations.
In his spare time, Luke is heavily involved in the struggling horse racing industry where he won a national award for contribution to media in the industry. He manages a community of 14,500 young people who enjoy the sport, drawing crowds and hosting events at race days across New Zealand. His community movement is growing and through this growth, Luke has become a new kind of influencer in the New Zealand and Australian horse racing scene.
Luke believes that the vast majority of businesses lack a deep understanding of the maturity of the internet, and that by getting clear on the opportunities that the internet and social media provide, there are ways for these businesses to exponentially out-perform their competitors.
Come along to our next BA5 in October to hear Luke talk about making meaningful change in tired industries, and to take away skills that you can apply to your businesses and organisations.
