Bob Bradley - Founder of MD2MD

Now semi-retired, in his spare time (!) Bob interviews business leaders on stage and facilitates strategy workshops for leadership teams.
Looking back on his career he feels he wasted too much time ploughing down dead ends and driving past shortcuts. Today his passion is to help others avoid wasting their time, sharing what he learnt the hard way by writing and speaking on operational business leadership.
In his books and on stage he shares thoughts, tips and tools to help leaders achieve even more success for their business with even less stress for themselves. Oh and in the rest of his spare time he has a few private coaching clients.

Bob Bradley - Board workshop facilitator, stage interviewer, practical speaker and author

Bob will be interviewing our panel of business leaders on stage and he will be available between sessions for any questions or discussions.

Untold Story Video

Untold Story is a production company which creates multimedia content for brands, companies and organisations looking to engage through cinematic filmmaking and photography.

It could be an exhilarating promo film to sit centre-stage on your website, or a punchy animation to help visualise a complex process to your employees. Perhaps you need a customer testimonial to demonstrate the value of your product to prospective customers, or an awe-inspiring drone shoot to show the scale of your new development.

They’ll help find the most effective way to tell your story and bring your brand to life.
