Brad Giles

Founder, Managing Director, Author and Speaker | 20+ Years Experience

Since the 1990’s I have immersed myself in learning from the best business minds around the world through my coaching memberships, EO membership (Entrepreneurs Organisation) and self-directed executive education with an average of 300+ hours of professional development per year.

I have an intense desire to build great businesses. Not mediocre businesses with acceptable profits but enduring, truly great businesses. I define a truly great business as one where you have motivated, productive people who enjoy the working environment, a strategy which organically drives revenues to you from your competition, as well as execution that delivers consistent revenue and profits month on month, and a business model which generates cash as you grow rather than needing cash.

A business that gives you energy rather than draining your energy.

I’m an experienced serial entrepreneur, having founded multiple fast growth companies in my own right and received relevant accolades. I understand your situation because I have been in your situation. It can be lonely at the top and for the leaders I work with, they know that I’ve got their back.

Connect With Brad

My job is not to prove that I’m right, it’s to help those around me. Being a leadership team coach isn’t my side hustle, this is my career. I don’t have ‘my finger’ in any other pies. My pursuit is mastery in this realm.

I take the time to listen, to ask questions, to understand you, your leadership team and the situation. I’m not a consultant who tells you what to do, gets paid and heads off into the sunset with no connection to the actual outcomes. I typically work with leadership teams for many years and work to make them sustainably better, because your success is my success.
