Simon Griffiths Biography

Simon Griffiths is an engineer and economist turned social entrepreneur and thought leader. He is a knowledgeable and charismatic keynote speaker.

In 2007, after turning down his dream job offer as a corporate high-flyer, Simon moved from Australia to South Africa to immerse himself in his true passion: development aid. There he discovered that the biggest problem faced by NGO's and social entrepreneurs is a lack of funding. Since then he has launched three social businesses of his own, all focused on revolutionising the way society thinks about and engages in philanthropy.

Simon’s latest venture is a home products company that is backed by a number of international investors. Its flagship product is Who Gives A Crap, an environmentally friendly toilet paper that uses 50% of its profits to build toilets in the developing world. He is also well known for his work as co-founder...

Simon’s latest venture is a home products company that is backed by a number of international investors. Its flagship product is Who Gives A Crap, an environmentally friendly toilet paper that uses 50% of its profits to build toilets in the developing world. He is also well known for his work as co-founder of Shebeen, a non-profit bar in Melbourne that sells exotic beer and wine from the developing world. The profit from each sale at Shebeen supports a project in that particular drink’s country of origin.

Simon’s work has been written up in the Stanford Social Innovation Review, and recently saw him recognised by The Age’s Melbourne Magazine as one of Melbourne’s Top 100 Most Influential People.

Simon’s passion to innovate and execute makes him an engrossing and inspiring speaker. He makes serious global issues and complex business problems engaging and fun, and his astute and sparkling sense of humour leaves audiences in fits of laughter.
