Over 30 Years in Sales Leadership

Phil Bradley, Director of Learning & Development

As a sales leader, Phil has always delivered and is passionate about where delivering great results come from – he believes passionately in hiring, developing, promoting, and rewarding great salespeople. Over the years his teams have flourished, and many have gone on to have amazing careers at the top of blue-chip organisations.

Phil started as a salesperson and worked his way through field sales, corporate accounts, and sales leadership and prior to taking on his real passion which is developing people he held a number of Sales Director positions leading highly successful organisations.

His approach to Learning and Development is that it should be a constant in any organisation and start right at the top of any organisation. Without the alignment and capability of the leadership training will simply be a ‘tick box’ exercise and a transactional environment without driving real change.

Everything Phil and his team do is about delivering behavioural change to long lasting results that support every individual who he works with over their entire career.
