“Everyday People Achieve Extraordinary Things” – Bradley Chapman
Bradley Chapman believes that “Everything is Possible” if you have the right mindset and motivation to support your dream, goals and vision. He has faced and overcome major adversity in both his personal life and the various businesses that he has owned, managed and built during his career. He believes that everyday people can achieve extraordinary things and delivers this message through motivational and inspirational speeches, seminars and networking events.
Bradley has over 20 years of business, business management and entrepreneurial business experience. He has traded both in the UK and internationally for clients including Walt Disney, Wembley Stadium, Coca Cola, pop and rock groups including Oasis and The Spice Girls as well as supplying promotional products for major TV campaigns, leading UK brands and major Blue Chip companies.
Over the years Bradley has owned various businesses including an import and export business, retails shops, fast food catering businesses, clothing mail order, textiles manufacturing, wholesale and retail businesses and most recently Raw Business – The Entrepreneur Network which offers Business Networking and a Business Magazine called Raw Business Magazine to the companies readers and members.
After a painful relationship break up in 2007 Bradley left his home, taking with him a few black sacks of clothes. He decided to leave his six figures + job Hugo Boss suits and launched a business to help aspiring entrepreneurs and existing business owners achieve their dream. That was not before he declared himself bankrupt. He then promised to build a business networking company and business magazine with no money. Bradley said that within three years he would have interviewed some of the UK’s highest profile entrepreneurs, built a successful business network and published a leading UK business magazine… that was in 2007.
Today Bradley has interviewed and worked with some of the UK’s highest profile entrepreneurs including Charlie Mullins, Phil Hall, David Gold, Richard Farleigh, Jacqueline Gold, Max Clifford, Caprice Bourret and Rachel Elnaugh. He has successfully created the Raw Business entrepreneur network that has thousands of members and has published 15 editions of Raw Business Magazine, which has been read in over 70 countries worldwide.
Bradley was invited in January 2008 to speak at the British Library for the Inspiring Entrepreneurs series of events titled “Business Nightmares”. He talked about his first business-networking website called Million Impossible, which he launched in 2007. The event was headed by Rachel Elnaugh, former Dragons Den panellist and owner of Red Letter Days. Bradley’s speech was warmly received by the audience after he raised the volume in the auditorium by asking over 250 people to network with each other in the audience.
Bradley is a down to earth, passionate, determined and courageous entrepreneur that has a unique style of motivating and inspiring business owners, entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneur to take the first steps in business. He also has an ability to bring business, employees and team together to fight for one cause – SUCCESS!
“I recommend Bradley, his company Raw Business and of course his business magazine Raw Business. Motivation plays an important part in any business owner’s career and if you are struggling to find yours call Bradley and he will fill you with energy that you can turn into bolts of lightning to positively impact your business”.
