What's a Big Stick anyway?

A “stick” is just another name for a surfboard.  The bigger the “stick”, the bigger the wave you can ride.  The bigger the wave, the bigger the thrill.  So to harness a serious thrill, you’re going to need a Big Stick.

We believe

High-performance teams and the celebration of success are critical factors in a company’s strategy. Our consultative approach identifies your organisation’s ambitions, integrating your brand and values to creatively determine how best to achieve those goals.

We lead

Big Stick was born out of passion and our journey has resulted in some amazing and life-changing experiences.  But we continue to strive, to improve, to break boundaries and for that reason are widely acknowledged as market leaders.

We live it

Our home is Torquay, Victoria, in an historic surfboard factory. And while we do occasionally sit at our desks, the team’s best ideas come when we’re out surfing, mountain biking and hiking. That’s because the Big Stick crew shares a zest for life, adventure and fun and the commitment to share it with others.

Meet the Team

Brett Hollis

Brett used to have an office job. But after 12 years as a Collins St banker (complete with an Economics degree and post-grad in Leadership Management), he realised company mergers and acquisitions had lost their thrill. So he followed his heart to Torquay and let his adventurous spirit take the lead. Brett is often asked to share his story as a guest speaker at client events.

Aaron Kopanica

Aaron combines a double degree in marketing and events with his love of the outdoors.
Our resident social media guru, Aaron can simultaneously fix your bike, plan your next event, teach you how to surf and dream up something never done before.
As a long-term member of our team his many years of hands-on, practical experience is an incredible value-add for all of our clients.
