Meet Brad Twynham
Brad is an activator, motivator, teacher, practitioner, innovator and change agent. What sets him apart as a speaker is his approachability and authenticity which lifts audiences to go beyond inspiration and to take action.
His special gift is his powerful lived experiences and stories that capture the audience’s attention, build trust and catalyse change. People leave his sessions entertained, and with a lifelong desire to challenge their “traditional ways of thinking and doing things.”
What would you do if the FBI knocked on your door?
- Business Strategist
Brad remains on the cutting edge of innovation and technology
As an advisor to Federal, State and Local Governments on economic redevelopment, activating innovation ecosystems for change and a Lecturer and Entrepreneur in Residence for one of Australia’s biggest Universities.
He also mentors and advises Senior Change leaders, world-class entrepreneurs and innovators as well as trains and develops senior leadership teams to be more adaptable and fluid using his groundbreaking “Radical Innovation” framework.
No one can talk about going beyond resilience and embracing change, innovation and transition like Brad can. Many say his messages are powerful, cohesive and easily catchable and his presentations thought–provoking and a vital moment in shaping new capabilities to succeed in a rapidly changing environment.
In 2015 the FBI accused Brad’s business partner of securities fraud.
They used Brad to try and gain the upper hand in the investigation. They applied maximum pressure to get what they wanted; they took his home, assets, destroyed his reputation and threatened to take his freedom if he didn’t give them what they wanted.
There is no greater metaphor than this story for highlighting the business environment we currently operate in.
Brad has been on the leading edge of technology and change for over 25–years.
As the Co–Founder of three enterprise startups, Brad had advised some of the most senior leaders in technology in some of the biggest corporations in the world who implemented and drove transformational change through using products and services his company’s developed.
