David Frankel

David Frankel is the ultimate Australian male chauvinist, or so you might think when you first meet him, but underneath his bravado, he is the CEO of the Venus Movement and a force in the drive for empowerment and gender equality in business.

Working alongside strong women for most of his career, with two daughters, four sons and 34 years of marriage to draw from he has learned to respect and revere female qualities in his business and personal life.

David, a serial entrepreneur, was 24 when he capitalised on satellite television’s entry to the Australian skies. He produced 100 hours of niche sports television per week to satisfy their insatiable appetite for sporting content.

In 1987 he was involved in the television production, marketing and merchandising of the world’s first large scale touring production of an opera – AIDA. He went on to become head of marketing and business growth for the North American tour.

After touring with AIDA, he semi-retired in the UK, built a property portfolio and became a “house husband ” giving his wife the support and space to grow her family business.

Following a trip to Nepal for a wedding in 2007, he pushed forward with an idea to alleviate poverty in developing countries using business as the tool rather than hand-outs. Too many obstacles later, making it impossible to “save the world” and with his 6th child now old enough to fend for himself, David decided to dive head-first into supporting others with their business ventures.
