About

About

I was born in Bathurst, NSW, Australia.  I have always had an entrepreneurial and pioneering mindset.  My first business was a word processing business, my second a discotheque and then started the world's first on-line art auction.  

My corporate career commenced in consulting around the mid 90's where I developed great experience across a variety of vendors and service providers.  I started my first workforce management business in 2008 which was later sold to Deloitte, then founded Smart WFM in 2016.

I love to write and to give-back.  I have published two books, The Digital Workforce and The Modern CEO.

More about me can be found on my website jarrodmcgrath.com

My philosophy on life is YOLO.  You only live once, so make the most of it !!
