About Brad Burton

Brad Burton is an in-your-face entrepreneur, motivational speaker and author.
In 2005 Brad was GBP25,000 in personal debt, delivering pizzas to keep his start-up marketing business afloat, with a whinging wife demanding him to "go get a proper job". Today he is the MD of the multi-million pound international business 4Networking. A social business network with over 200 groups arranging local business networking events on a weekly basis.
Brad is a hit on the speaking network in his own right - outside of the 4Networking events - and speaks at small business events such as the Business Start Up Show and for internal events held by corporates such as JCB. He has recently launched BradCamp as a separate brand to promote himself beyond 4Networking even further. The title Life. Business. Just Got Easier is the strapline to this branding.
Brad has 11,000 followers on twitter - many of whom are highly engaged.
Brad has appeared in many articles in the mainstream media including The Guardian and The Times. He has also recently had a screen test with Talk Back TV production company.
Brad has self published 2 books Get Off Your Arse and Get off Your Arse Too. The first has 170+ 5* reviews - he asked for a few, but then they took on a life of their own. He has sold 20,000 copies through his own network.
