William Du


William co-founded Short Story in 2009 with Carolyn Wong, from a small business grant they
received. It was a slow start but in their hearts they knew they had to go on. They eventually
caught their break when they first created their signature frame, their artworks took flight
and are now exhibited in London and New York and are sold all over the world. Their sister
brand Short Story has now grown to be stocked in over 500 stores Australia-wide and in
talks with numerous global distributors.

About The Masters Series

WeTeachMe is our vision of the future of learning: inspired and impassioned learning that is run by the people, for the people.

In 2016, WeTeachMe officially became the biggest school in Australia, one giant leap towards our fundamental goal to be the biggest school in the world. As we start on our new journey to attain our next ambition, we begin with empowering thought leaders in every corner of the world by equipping them with the right tools and knowledge that will help them spark new ideas and bringing these ideas to life.

In accordance with this purpose, we have formed a new creative program to assist us in spreading our message into the world. We launched Masters Series by WeTeachMe where we could begin sharing the gifts, knowledge, and experiences of those who have achieved the unimaginable in their life against all odds to entrepreneurs who are still in the starting line.

To achieve this aim, we invite the best and the brightest, the industry movers and shakers, the well-known and influential members of the world of entrepreneurs to share their learnings and experiences in an unwavering effort to help those who are in constant search to find the answers.
