Brad Burton

BradBurtonAs a small business owner Brad has suffered all of the worries, challenges and indignities of launching a business (in massive personal debt and having to deliver pizzas in the early days).

Brad knows what it’s like and tells it how it is.

Not as thick as he looks, Brad was told “It’ll never work” and has answered his critics in the best possible way – by proving them wrong and spearheading the fastest growing business breakfast network, 4Networking, who run over 5,000 joined up networking events across the UK each year! Oh yea and they now have groups opening in Australia.

Next stop, all around the world.

He’s generally regarded as the UK’s #1 Motivational Business Speaker and is the author of three books so far, all of which are “self help/biz books for people who don’t like self help/biz books”, his unique approach to business, life is also found in his writing, his books are written with a raw honesty, the likes of which most authors would be unwilling to share.

Life. Business. Just Got Easier [2013] Is his latest. A book which he believes will help the reader change their Life, Business, Direction, Thinking… All four? Maybe.

Get Off Your Arse [2009] – is Brad’s must-read inspirational story of how he went from his boxroom to the boardroom as MD of 4Networking. With over 200 rave reviews on Amazon, averaging 4.7 out of 5, this was the publishing sensation of the year.

Get Off Your Arse Too [2011] – Brad Burton is back, sharing his unique and raw look at life/business and how everything happens for a reason, even the s**tty stuff… GOYA2, repeated the success of the first book.

Jean Pierre De Villiers

photo 1Jean Pierre De Villiers, or ‘JP’ to his friends and clients, is the founder of JPDV Global. Jean Pierre is a Peak Performance Coach, Author and Speaker who helps people to build and maintain a bulletproof mind and body by applying strategies that reshape their psychology and physiology. JP counts the likes of Sam Claflin (personally trained him for the Pirates of the Caribbean and Snow White and the Huntsman), James Cracknell, Kerry Ellis, Javine Hylton, Sabrina Washington, and many more as clients.

Born in South Africa in 1981, JP got into sports from a young age and at just eight years old, competed in his first cycling race. Up until fourteen, JP immersed himself in every sport he could participate in including; rugby, surfing, roller hockey, football and baseball, but coming from an unprivileged background meant JP always felt he wasn’t “good enough” and was consistently bullied for being financially disadvantaged. JP then further used sports as a way to deflect his unhappiness and at nineteen years old, became a semi-professional cyclist in Cape Town.

At twenty years old, JP decided to pursue another passion of his, music, and after studying music production he moved to London, a city he now calls home. Through his music studies and his persistence to ‘make it’, JP became a full-time DJ within 2 years, but his success in the music industry quickly became his downfall. JP felt that although his lifestyle was a celebration of hedonism, core parts of his life were not how he wanted to live, he was unhealthy and discontent, both in body and in mind and having his father commit suicide when he was just thirteen years old as a result of living an unbalanced, unhealthy and unhappy life, also contributed largely to JP seeking a healthy sustainable change. JP decided to go back to what he knew he loved and what served him – health.

photo 4After his stint as a successful DJ, JP started working in the health and fitness industry and within 2 years was asked to run one of London’s biggest fitness centres, but turned it down as he knew this wouldn’t fulfil him and that he was destined for something greater. For the first time in his life he felt like he could achieve anything. He had made significant positive changes in his life and now wanted to help other people do the same, with a more personable approach, and by 2007 JP became a qualified personal trainer, set up his own company and set out to help people in the best way he knew how.

JPDV Global, for the past three years, has seen its revenue double and at present, is set to become a seven figure business, JP has also launched multiple products and services through his company due to a high demand from his clients. JPDV is also well known as one of the only health and fitness companies that provide personal coaching programmes for successful business and high profile people, personally tailored by JP himself.

Additionally, JP has won numerous business awards including Entrevo’s ‘Key Person of Influence’, whilst narrowly missing out on being voted ‘Health Coach of The Year’ twice in a row at the 2013 & 2014 APCTC Awards (Association of Professional Coaches Trainers and Consultants) – JP was the finalist for this award both years. In 2012, JP was asked to be a fitness model by W Athletic and still continues working with them. JP is also an ambassador for JST Nutrition.

Due to all of these achievements, JP is also a recognised inspirational speaker, having spoken over 50 times both in the UK and internationally, JP is also a professional Muay Thai fighter and has fought in London and Thailand which lead to JP also running fitness retreats in Thailand which are now all fully booked. He is also qualified in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, sports psychology, personal coaching and has many other health and fitness related qualifications.

JP is the published author of ’77 Ways to Reshape Your Life’, has a series of eBooks and has either written for or been featured in national publications including; The Financial Times, Zest and Mail Online. Additionally, JP has also provided training for the Facejacker TV series and James Cracknell (double Olympic Gold Medalist) in the most recent Duracell commercial, he has also most recently been appointed as the Health and Fitness editor for the newly launched My London Lifestyle magazine, which will be available from August 22nd 2013.

Gary King

981604_10151480159053182_1383862522_oGary King is an outstanding role model for those of us searching for honesty, integrity, forgiveness, peace and health.  These qualities Gary gave to himself after years of heart breaking tragedies and challenges that ultimately lead him to The Power of Truth ™.

Until 1986, Gary lived a basically honest life.  He had a series of intriguing careers – service in the Navy; a marine engineer; a noted artist and sculptor ; VP of Sales and Marketing in the television industry, Major Event Producer of festivals, motor sports and  charity events.…his lifestyle had afforded him the opportunity to travel the world…..however, his basically honest life was also filled with pain.  With every success came tragedy in its wake.  He experienced guilt over the estrangement from his father, failed marital and personal relationships, cancer, having his daughter taken from him only to realize through a paternity test that he was not her father. The death of a five year old boy whom he hit with his vehicle after the boy had ran from his mother crossing a busy street.

Gary found himself considering suicide; weak, broken and lost he had a near-death experience. This experience created a major shift in consciousness that resulted in Gary reading hundreds of books on spirituality, quantum physics, metaphysics and personal growth. He realized that his near-death experience left him with the inability to lie.  Truth and integrity were a vital source of his existence. Confused and still broken, a close friend eventually took Gary to a Tony Robbins event which changed his life forever and led to a sub-contractor position with Anthony Robbins Companies where he has spent the last 15 years serving in roles ranging from Director of Security to his current position as Road Manager.

Gary knows his past experiences are true blessings that have led him where he is today.  As a speaker, author, life-coach and mentor, for the last four years Gary has traveled internationally talking about his belief in The Power of Truth ™.  He has talked to thousands of people from all ages and walks of life and has received overwhelming enthusiasm for his message at every stop.  The many testimonials he has received proves that “We cannot lie to ourselves and others, without it having an effect on our exterior personal lives, but also at a cellular level”.
