Game changers: in conversation with Damian Griffiths

The Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame celebrates, records and retells the stories of outstanding Queensland business leaders and their contributions to our state.

Facilitated by Ray Weekes, Chair of The CEO Institute, the Game Changers series brings innovation leaders from business, technology, and creative industries to share their insights with aspiring Queensland entrepreneurs. This is your chance to ask how local entrepreneurs and business leaders build companies, reinvent themselves generation after generation, inspire teams, and envision success.

Immigration lawyer turned entrepreneur Damian Griffiths has been shaping and challenging Brisbane’s social landscape for the past six years. Dubbed the ‘godfather of bar culture’, Damian is the name behind the boutique Limes Hotel, popular hybrid dining/cocktail experience Alfred and Constance and the unique new Chester Street Bakery and Bar.

Starting from humble beginnings Damian moved from the country Queensland town of Dalby to Brisbane to pursue his passion for travel, boutique hotels and budget accommodation. In five years from when Limes Hotel first opened, Damian has turned a quiet fringe area of Fortitude Valley to a true entertainment precinct. His unique approach sees the heightening of national and international attention of Brisbane’s hospitality scene and his vision continues to expand across Brisbane.
