“The failings in the early career phase, the successors that then lead to yet another failure, which is when I took my first tip toe into the world of entrepreneurialism, had my backside royally kicked, then back into the grind, did really well.. It has been an ongoing roller coaster.” – Frank Cuiuli
Frank Cuiuli lost everything, yet he thrived.. and is now co founder of Pivot Me. Frank tells us what it was about his physiology and psychology that had him pick him self up, time and time again.
When leaders care for their employees on a personal level the results are astonishing… “Studies by The Black Dog Institute show if you train leaders on basic mental health literacy and how to help people, they’ve shown a 998% return on investment. Caring, and support does lead to fantastic results.” – Graeme Cowan. Graeme explains the importance of learning the necessary skills it takes to effectively support one another in the workplace, and introduces us to psychological safety at work.

I have known Brad for many years over my career in Technology.In an industry where relationships can be a little bit of a commodity, I found that the relationship with Brad grew over time as his interest were genuine regarding getting to know the person, and not simply looking at the utility. Because of this, I have seen many sides of Brad and have grown a level of respect and connection with him in this time.He has a great depth of insight across a number of fields and is an inquisitive person that always looks to garner a deep understanding of a topic.Brad is a great guy to hang out and explore a wide range of topics, as well as a person I am always happy to do business with.
