About Brad Burton

Brad Burton is a highly sought-after speaker and entrepreneur who transformed the UK business networking landscape with his groundbreaking company, 4Networking. Launched in February 2006 with the bold claim, “Welcome to the future of networking,” Brad’s vision filled a significant market gap, turning a weekend pizza delivery side hustle into a multimillion-pound success story within five years. His journey from market trader to a recognised business leader is packed with valuable lessons on high-growth entrepreneurship and people management, which he now shares in his engaging talks and seminars.

Brad’s rise to prominence includes numerous TV and Radio appearances, highlighting his expertise and charismatic personality. His entrepreneurial journey faced a significant challenge during the pandemic when traditional face-to-face networking was halted. Demonstrating his adaptability, Brad swiftly transitioned 4Networking to an online platform, ensuring that the thousands of small businesses relying on his network could continue generating leads and sales. Under his leadership, 4Networking successfully ran over 68,000 networking meetings, both in-person and online, until he exited the company in August 2022.

Since selling his interests in 4Networking, Brad has focused on inspiring and empowering individuals, teams, and businesses. His presentations are renowned for their excitement, energy, enthusiasm, and practical, real-world insights, rather than theoretical knowledge. Brad’s talks are supported by world-class creative design, ensuring quality and impact in every delivery.

Brad’s storytelling, infused with humour, humility, confidence, and enthusiasm, resonates deeply with audiences, making his sessions memorable and actionable. He combines personal anecdotes with practical advice, demonstrating how obstacles can be transformed into opportunities.
