“The fire that you want to ignite in others must first burn within you.” – Augustine of Hippo


A word from Brad

I spent the past week in Las Vegas for the Fortune Growth Summit learning from some pretty fascinating thought leaders and will be bringing you an overview of their messages in future newsletters

Global Gazelles Award

Each year Gazelles provide a Core Values award for the person (from 150 globally) who excelled and lived the Core Values most. I was proud to win the global award this year amongst some fantastic peers. Here is a photo with Keith Cupp, Gazelles president at the ceremony.


Scaling Up

Scaling Up, Mastering the Rockefeller Habits 2 is now available here.

Cash Flow story

Alan Miltz is the author of the Cash section of Scaling Up and the founder of Pearl Financial whose software is used by thousands of businesses and banks around the world to assess the ‘4 chapters’ of a businesses finances. In this video Alan demonstrates how business owners pay attention to profit & loss and balance sheets, but do not report on working capital or funding often to their detriment. If you are looking to get a firm grasp on working capital and cash flow to fund growth within your business, click here for information about our detailed report.

Growth Forum Program

In 2015 we will be launching our Growth Forum Program which is designed to bring quarterly workshop planning to a more affordable price point for entrepreneurs in the $1m to $5m category. Basic details are;

  • 4 x 1 day quarterly workshops (e.g. Mar, June, Sept, Dec)
  • Gazelles Growth Institute online video access for 12 months
  • A copy of the Scaling Up book – Mastering the Rockefeller Habits 2
  • Cashflow story financial report on your business

Workshops are facilitated group sessions limited to 5 companies and 5 delegates per company.

This program won’t have the direct coaching element as our Gazelles Growth Program, but will be more of a training forum, to both learn mastery of the One Page Strategic Plan and our growth and strategy tools as well as enable you to build an execution plan each quarter.

Applications and pricing details here.


Jim Collins in Australia

As you may be aware, Jim Collins, Author of ‘Good to Great’ & ‘Built to Last’ is coming to Australia for probably the last time in March 2015. It is likely that tickets will sell out in the next few weeks and so if you are planning to go order your tickets soon. Also if you are going, email me as we are looking to arrange a gathering of WA delegates if you are interested.


Salim Ismail

Fortune Growth Summit Speaker
Salim was the first speaker at the Growth Summit and certainly one of the most thought provoking. He is the author of Exponential organisations and founder of Singularity University which had hosted a week of learning for YPO the week before and was the talk of the summit. Some of Salim’s more interesting facts included;

  • Drones carry 9 pound packages 8 miles currently and this is doubling every 9 months (massive impact for transport industry);
  • 6 US states now have autonomous car licence plates (for robot drivers);
  • We are 2 years from a live wooly mammoth walking around;
  • In 2020 Solar power pricing will have changed 3,000 times relative to coal. In 25 years the solar energy produced will equal 100% of all demand, in 32 years 200%;
  • In 20 years for every day you live we will be able to extend your life by 2 days;
  • My 3 year old son will never get a drivers licence (as cars will drive themselves – making car crashes unheard of).
