Warwick’s Story:
The Gift of a $2.25 Billion Failure.

Crucible Leadership, Warwick Fairfax, Inspiration, Leadership, Coaching, Leading a Life of Significance

At 26 years old, I launched a $2.25B takeover bid for my family’s 150-year-old media business. From the beginning, things went wrong. Within 3 years, the company filed for bankruptcy — and a generations-old family business was gone.

The decade after was tough for me, but I refused to let it define me. Born out of my most challenging days was a new philosophical approach to leading a life of authenticity and significance.

Now, I’ve made it my life’s work to guide others in doing the same. No matter what your crucible, my purpose is to help you move beyond it to create your own life of significance.
