Adam Mostogl

Illuminate Education
Founder & Program Manager
In any given week, Adam Mostogl might be helping young entrepreneurs to kick-start their companies, stimulating small businesses to challenge the status quo, challenging communities to understand their potential or teaching hundreds of students to embrace innovation to solve the problems of the future.

Focused on empowering the community to create change, Adam established illuminate Education & Consulting in 2009 and partners with many organisations, including the University of Tasmania and the Australian Maritime College to inspire young people to embrace their creativity, identify business solutions to simple problems and recalibrate their approaches to learning. Adam is extremely passionate about what young business people can do and achieve, and is focused on supporting them to take the next step in their endeavours and to Believe No Boundaries.

Through a fresh and energetic approach, Adam also offers strategy, marketing and facilitation support to various organisations, including the Queenstown Heritage & Arts Festival and the West Coast Wilderness Railway amongst other start up businesses developed by young people. Adam’s background is varied, including having worked in hospitality, heavy industry, education and retail, which gives him a diverse understanding of where businesses have similarities but also where they are different. He may come across as boring because he loves strategy and procedures – but by systemising the ordinary helps to maintain quality control, and allows everyone to humanise the extraordinary. He also likes working with technology to help do things that might not have been thought possible, which explains why his tablet looks like it’s an extension of his arm.

Living by his motto that “if you want something done for the community, you need to get out and do it”, Adam inspires young people to realise their potential, unleash their creativity and seize the opportunities, because, as he says, “the world is ready”.
