If you’ve landed here it’s probably because you want to learn more about Tristan and/or this Culture is Everything blog. If so, then here’s a quick intro to get to know me. But, first of all, thanks! Thanks for taking a moment to swing by my home on the web, that’s really nice of you :)
So, who am I?
My bio is here. In short, I’m Tristan White, founder & CEO of The Physio Co, Australia’s 8th Best Place to Work and most unique physiotherapy business. The Physio Co has been ranked as one of the Best Places to Work & Fastest Growing Businesses in Australia for the past four years. But more important than my work, is my family. I’m married to Kimberley and dad to little Alexandra (born in 2011). We live in a little town called Sandy Point by the coast in Victoria, Australia.
Early in 2012 I finished my first Ironman triathlon (that’s a 3.8km swim, 180km bike & then a 42.2km marathon!) and I’ll definitely being going back to do it all again some time soon! But in the meantime, I’m signed up to compete in the 2013 Shepparton Ironman 70.3 (half-distance ironman).
I’m a qualified physiotherapist from The University of Melbourne, have an MBA from Queensland University of Technology & right now I’m completing an Entrepreneurial Masters Program at MIT in Boston.
What do I do?
Workwise, my passion is The Physio Co. I love it! I love our growing team, I love the likeable oldies we visit and I love all of the people I get to meet and work with. In 2004, The Physio Co was one person with a vision to change seniors healthcare forever. In 2012, The Physio Co was ranked the 8th Best Place to Work in Australia, grew to more than 55 team members and delivered over 108,000 unique consultations to Australian aged care residents.
I’m really proud to say that I work at The Physio Co, (TPC) it’s a special place that feels like an extended family. To be working with such an amazing group of caring people that are making a difference in the lives of 1000′s of elderly people every week is a real privilege. If you’d like to know more about our ever-expanding TPC family, please head over here.
How you can learn from what I do?
I’m super-passionate about sharing what I learn to help others grow themselves and their careers. I write a blog, Culture is Everything, which was very generously listed as as one Australia’s 20 Best Business Blogs in 2011 & 2013. You can find it here and the best way to keep in touch is to subscribe for email updates, please just pop your email address in the box at the top right of this page & hit sign up :).
I also get the chance to speak at conferences, company retreats & team meetings from time to time. I love inspiring other people to build strong cultures and be happier at work. ‘The 4 Secrets to Building A World Class Culture’ is my most popular presentation along with ‘Blogging for Business’. For more info or to book me to speak, head on over to my speaking page here.
One last thing..
If you’re wondering how on earth KW, AW & I live in Sandy Point while I work for The Physio Co two and a half hours away in South Melbourne, a values-based culture is the answer. Check out this ‘Ask Tristan’ post that explains how we’ve made it happen.
