Beachhead Advisor, Australia
Anthony Mitchell is the Chair of strategic advisory firm Bendelta, which he co-founded in 2003.
With over 25 years in advisory, Anthony has worked in more than 30 countries across Australasia, Asia, North America, Europe and the Middle East, and has specialist expertise in knowledge-intensive sectors.
Under his leadership, Bendelta has twice been named one of Australia’s 100 fastest growing companies during the last decade, and has won Australia’s highest award for leadership development.
The art and science of strategic leadership is what has driven Anthony to where he is today. As a graduate in both mathematics and psychology, and with postgraduate business qualifications from Cornell University, Anthony has a unique mix of expertise across typically separate ways of thinking. He is therefore frequently engaged to lead organisations through critical events in their business lifecycle.
Outside Bendelta, Anthony pursues his passion for human potential in other ways. He is the Chairman of the Aurora Education Foundation, which has helped change the narrative for Indigenous tertiary education through unprecedented scholarships to Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard. He is also a member of the Amnesty International 2020 Council, chaired globally by Sir Richard Branson, and was the Chairman and President of Amnesty International Australia for five years.
Anthony specialises in situations of major change, eg rapid growth, mergers and acquisitions, capital investment, business repositioning, geographical expansion, culture change and business exit.
