Stephen Scheeler is the former Facebook CEO for Australia and New Zealand, where he led Facebook’s unprecedented rise from quirky Silicon Valley start-up to media and technology titan.
Overseeing Facebook’s ANZ team – and working with Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg and Facebook’s Silicon Valley leaders – Stephen guided Facebook ANZ’s business – including Instagram, Messenger, Whatsapp and Oculus – through one of the most dynamic periods of growth and disruption in recent business history.
His tenure at Facebook saw the ANZ business grow from mere start-up to over US$1billion in annual revenue – becoming one of the most successful Facebook markets in the world.
Stephen is a seasoned business leader of digital transformation. His career spans over 25 years across multiple sectors including consumer products, retail, ecommerce, automotive, financial services, media and technology.
Stephen believes Australian business is falling behind in the race to capitalise on the digital opportunity.
Today – as founder of global advisory The Digital CEO, senior advisor to McKinsey & Company, and executive-in-residence at Asia-Pacific’s leading business school, AGSM – he partners with the CEOs and boards of Australia's leading companies to help them build global, digital, billion-dollar businesses through world-beating digital strategies, capabilities, culture and leadership.
As a speaker, Stephen has a unique ability to inspire audiences and leaders alike on the power of digital. He is an inspiring personality on the highest-profile media and keynote stages, and is a member of former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull’s Knowledge Nation 100, top innovation leaders in Australia.
“This was one of the best conferences I have been to and the speakers were all excellent. Each and every speaker left me with something I could take away and implement into my own business.”
“The Better Business Summit is an annual event that the team comes to. It is a great opportunity for the support staff to gain some knowledge of our industry."
“Have been attending for a few years now and will continue to do so. It is always an inspiring day and great to mingle with other brokers from different organisations.”
“This was the first time I have attended this event and didn’t know what to expect. I was extremely impressed with the format and each speaker. I was able to take so much information with me.”
