    The Aussie Club is honored to welcome, Mr. Alan Ramadan, PLAYBIGGER


    We are category designers 
    We are positioning and marketing advisors. 
    We are executive coaches.

    We believe the company that designs the category is best positioned to dominate it. 
    We believe legendary technology deserves legendary marketing. 
    We believe a point of view increase the odds of becoming the category leader.

    Every year we are lucky enough to partner with a few venture-backed technology firms to help them create a new category or win their current category battle. We work with all stages of the technology outfit, from earlier stage startups and large publically traded companies. Our goal is to help CEOs, CMOs and executive teams to create an un-fair competitive advantage through a new, strategic approach called category design.

    Dave, Al and JJ are former entrepreneurs and operators turned coaches. We have founded and built companies, served as CMOs, CEOs and senior executives of large public technology companies. We’re not theoretical, nose-picking consultants. As operators, we have won big and lost big. We’ve helped to create a handful of categories, many of which exist today.

    We became category design coaches after 20+ years of designing, developing and dominating market categories in the technology industry.

    Play Bigger was founded by Al, Dave and Christopher Lochhead in 2011. In 2016 the founders were joined by Kevin Maney to write Play Bigger: How Pirates, Dreamers and Innovators create and dominate marketsfor Harper Collins.



    About The Aussie Club


    The Aussie Club, has established itself as the San Francisco Bay Area’s premier Australian/American business network and forum for senior executives.

    The Aussie Club is a partnership of The Australian American Chamber of Commerce and the Fairmont Hotels and Resorts group.

    The Patron of The Aussie Club is the Hon. Chris Oldfield, Australian Consul-General and Senior Trade & Investment Commissioner.

    The Aussie Club introduces Bay Area senior business executives to prominent Australian business and political leaders through a dynamic program of round-table discussions, panel discussions and speaker series. This program provides unique insights into Australia’s business, economic, political and cultural environments and will provide local business leaders with opportunities to develop new networks and synergies.

    The Aussie Club strives to be an independent forum where business leaders who are driving change can exchange ideas, opinions, and viewpoints.

    Membership in The Aussie Club will offer a unique forum to network with an exclusive group of senior executives not only based here in the Bay Area but also visiting dignitaries and executives from Australia. Our dynamic programs will feature Australian connections, up-and-coming executives and national business leaders.

    The Aussie Club is a non-profit, member only organization, and is open to senior business executives with an interest in Australian business and culture.


    It is anticipated that membership will fall into two categories: -

    1. C-Level executives from medium to large corporations and

    2. CEOs & Presidents of small businesses and entrepreneurial entities

    We host quarterly events and expect to hold events in both San Francisco and South Bay/Peninsula locations. Some events may be tailored to one or both of the executive groups.
