OzSeeker is an information resource for all those with an interest in leisure property development. We scan the globe and publish news stories every day; reference material of all kinds: contacts; facts; figures and trends from the leisure industry… from trivial to crucial.
More than just a news digest, Ozseeker represents prodigious expertise and resources, spearheaded by John Sullivan. Whether you’re looking for a consultant, a specialist designer, advice on all kinds of leisure, from snow domes and cinemas to restaurants, cafés and family entertainment, John and his Ozseeker team can help.
So what qualifies us to say this? We live and breathe leisure – all day, every day.
John is regularly referred to as ‘The Google of Leisure’, because thanks to a life of leisure (and hard work), his contacts in property development spans the globe.
He began his career as a residential developer before becoming fascinated by the film entertainment business when acting for independent cinema groups. He gained a real understanding of how to make cinema work.
In the early 90s John went global, travelling to South Korea, the UK, Germany, Poland, France and Italy, while working with Australian leisure group Village Roadshow and Warner Bros on their international expansion plan.
Diversifying his client base led him into other forms of leisure, from extreme sports and family entertainment to Imax cinemas and arenas. He became an advisor to developers, local authorities and governments.
John has a prodigious memory for the thousands of people he has worked with over his career, and can always be relied upon to give sound advice, delivered with authority and a sense of Australian humour.
