Zander Woodford Smith

Zander is the founder of Stryv, a personal development platform of software, training and coaching that has helped over 11,000 people take control of their lives in its first year of operation. Through the company’s charitable giving Zander was the 2nd place award-winner of the B1G1’s Global Impact Awards for 2017. To date Stryv has contributed over 1.5 million days access to clean water, over 500,000 meals to school children and many other incredible initiatives.  Zander’s passion for personal development came from some extremely traumatic childhood experiences, which evoked a hunger to live life to the maximum— but with balance. This is what his company Stryv is helping others to do. He believes when more people achieve what they want, then they are open to ask even deeper questions of themselves and their own development, this can lead to a more compassionate and loving world.

Zander has coached global executives as well as Olympic athletes and coaches since the age of 23. Prior to getting injured Zander also played professional tennis on the circuit. Zander spent three years as Head of Online Development for a world-leading development company, creating apps and training programs for the largest organisations in the world. His passion is creating simple, beautiful powerful tools and training systems that help people make the most of life and their potential. His company’s purpose is to empower people to live their highest self which will create a more compassionate and loving world.
