Before I had Brad as my mentor I had no direction in my business and didn't understand the fundamentals of running a business.
This led to high stress and no profit.
After working with Brad I understand how to run a successful business, I have a clear direction I am taking the business, I only work 4 days a week, create consistent healthy profits on top of a good wage and have a team I can trust so I can have a holiday and know everything is sorted.
Brad knows his stuff and I wouldn't have achieved this without him.

BCD Technologies engaged Brad Flynn in order to provide mentoring and development of a few key staff whom the company identified would benefit from training to develop their roles.
The coaching led to the involvement of both management and the key team members in the business becoming involved and working on team building, role understanding and focussing on becoming driven and accountable for the business.
The process has raised the bar at which our business performs and I have seen an increase in the morale of our work team. It also made me think more about my role in managing the business and reinforced the standard that I need to set to get the most from the business.

I needed someone to guide me, educate me and teach me the in’s and out's of the business world, as I was just an average tradie taking a leap of faith with no particular direction in mind.
In our first session, Brad instantly saved me a vast amount of money, not only at the time but probably millions of dollars over the years that i will be in business.
Since starting with Business Mentored I've increased my turn over by over 125 x, increased my profit by 100 x, been a finalist and won awards for business, created a great working culture among my team, systemised my business and all in a time less than 3 years.
I wouldn’t have achieved or even come close to these goals if it wasn’t for Brad.

I have been self-employed for almost 18 years and have known for sometime now that I wanted to take my business to the next level, but knew I needed help.
By chance, I went to listen to Brad and when I heard him speak, I knew that this was right, it was much more than just about making money.
The support I have been shown on a business and personal level has been far greater than I would ever have expected. Never once have I felt that I was doing this on my own and I now know that I will achieve my goals with the knowledge and support of Brad.
Brad began working with us at a time when we were doing quite well, but we knew we were missing something with getting the best from ourselves and the team.
Through the mentoring we had with Brad, we shifted our mindsets significantly around our real role as leaders in our business and how to authentically empower our team.
Most significant has been what we learned about how to ask great questions of not only ourselves but equally importantly of our teams, which has led to great solutions that they came up with that they took ownership of and successfully implemented themselves, leaving us to focus on the bigger picture.
We are both extremely grateful for what we learned working with Brad and highly recommend his services if you are looking to break through to the next level with yourself and your team.

Working with Brad, we have learned new skills, particularly around asking better questions when faced with difficult situations.
Working to achieve win-win outcomes for our team and constant quality improvement for our business, including the perpetual team recruitment system, has been invaluable.
We gained personal growth from our sessions with Brad and would highly recommend his hands-on style of mentoring.

As a person who considers themselves quite proficient in my field of expertise in Commercial Real Estate, I was quite confident that when someone suggested I should use a business coach to improve my sales and overall success, I virtually laughed it off.
How on earth could this business coach possibly help me. How wrong I was. Only after one meeting with Brad, I had already improved my performance and re-focused on my goals.
Brad’s help has been invaluable in improving my sales and leasing results and would highly recommend him to anyone who thinks they are already doing well or are looking to improve their working position.
Brad has spoken to our senior students at Aspley State High School for the last couple of years, providing our students with important basic principles around life and employment.
His presentation, “What I Wish I Knew”, was entertaining, inspiring, and impactful in its simplicity and authenticity with stories from his own life experience, resonating with the students and getting positive feedback from students and parents.
To keep over 150 students engaged in a 45-minute presentation after 2pm on a Friday afternoon following on from a day at a career expo is no mean feat!
If you are looking for a quality external speaker to inform your senior students of what it’s like in the real world, get in touch with Brad.”

As a business owner, it can sometimes be difficult to know what areas of my business I need to focus on the most to make sure that i am getting the best from it.
Having Brad as my business mentor has helped me to gain the confidence to go to the next level, personally and professionally. As a result, I am now feeling more confident in building and enhancing my team to help me have more time to do the things i would rather be doing.
