Brad is a much sough- after speaker whose presentations titled ‘Adapting to Circumstances’ and ‘Goal setting – not shooting for the stars’ are both motivational and entertaining. He regularly addresses major corporate and sporting functions. Brad has an excellent sense of humour and always leaves audiences laughing.
Brad is also a first class master of ceremonies who has hosted government, corporate and sporting events in most Australian states.
“Excellent speaker. A superb presentation which was thought
provoking as well as providing lots of humour and motivation.
I would strongly recommend Brad as a speaker for any style of event.”
David Goode. BankWest Managers & Lenders’ Association.
“Motivation was what we required and Brad’s experiences were put across so well all of
our staff could relate to them. He combined motivation with humour which made his
speech even more enjoyable. You know it was good when staff were still talking about it
two weeks later.”
