About

The Drop Bear Collective was founded in mid-2017 in Newcastle, NSW Australia, by Paul to showcase his interactive Digital Business Cards (DBCs), which are now also fondly referred to as Drop Bear Cards (DBCs) or Drop Cards for short.

Drop Bear (Thylarctos plummetus) - A large, arboreal, predatory marsupial

It is thought by some that Drop Bears are not actually part of the bear family (Ursidae) but are in fact related to the Koala (Phascolarctos cinereus - an arboreal, herbivorous marsupial native to Australia). Koalas are also confusingly and inaccurately sometimes referred to as Koala Bears.

Just like Humans and Koalas, Drop Bears enjoy the company of other Drop Bears, living in overlapping areas, and under the right conditions can work together to achieve amazing results. Paul wanted to start an organisation to give like-minded individuals (or Bears if you will) the opportunity to join forces and showcase their great ideas, movements, etc. There is no collective noun for a group of Koalas or Drop Bears as they don't move around in groups and tend to be fairly solitary. Hence, the term "collective" seemed a good fit and gave birth to the name: The Drop Bear Collective

Some of Paul's business heroes are Newcastle-based Nick Stabler of Encast Digital fame - who has given him much advice and motivation over the years, and Derek Trotter (a London-based business tycoon and the head of Trotters Independent Traders) - who often used the phrase "He Who Dares, Wins". We have adapted this slightly to "Who Bears, Wins". We enjoy a big win every now and then, but with that said, it isn't the be-all and end-all.

Apart from running his own business, Paul enjoys sporting activities (playing and watching), music, walking, movies, watching boxsets, cooking, eating Lammos, travelling, exploring, spending time with friends and family, and of course scanning the trees for Phascolarctos cinereus and Thylarctos plummetus, which often results in what he calls Koala Neck.

Arrived at a meeting, conference or convention and realised you've forgotten your paper business cards.

Met that contact you've always wanted but it's a weekend and you don't have your paper business card.

Given a card to someone and not got their card in return.

Got to the end of a conference or convention and realised you have no idea who you gave your business cards to - despite giving out hundreds of cards.

Testimonials


Scott Moore
Business Development Manager - LinkSM

I thought the idea of a digital business card was one of the best ideas I'd heard in years.
When I got my card I loved showing it to people - still do.



Nigel Taylor
Director - Golf On Wheels

We would like to congratulate you and The Drop Bear Collective for doing an excellent job creating our website and digital business card.
We have received a lot of business from the set up of our website, which speaks highly of your input; the creative way it has been structured suits our business and the customer base. The interactive Digital Business Card has worked well for reaching our current customer base and new clientele. It is a very handy tool to have at our disposal.
I would have no problem recommending The Drop Bear Collective to any business that is looking to get value for money and fantastic after-sales service for their business media interests.
We look forward to sharing a long lasting business relationship, and wish you and The Drop Bear Collective all the best with your future endeavours.



Michael Manitta
Director - MMH Build

Paul and the Drop Bear team have brought to life only what technology-based smarts can provide. Done with such ease and professionalism, from start to finish, I couldn't be happier with what they have to offer. My business is better for my Digital Business Card, and I'm connected more efficiently because of it.
Thank you Drop Bear team.



Damon O’Shea
Director & Accredited Broker - The Finance Shed

Since receiving my Drop Card I hardly hand out physical cards any more. It's a unique way to display my brand and by saving the Drop Card on to their home screen, my referral network always has my details front of mind. This is clearly the way of the future
