Bradley Semmens (‘Brad’) has recently joined the BridgePoint Group team to head up BridgePoint Group’s Business Advisory Service. We caught up with him on day three in his role to see how he is settling in and to find out a bit more about him.
Brad brings over a decade of management and leadership experience across different industries into the role. To couple with his Bachelor of Business Management (Human Resources Management), Brad will commence his Master’s in Business Psychology at the beginning of 2023.
Brad’s role in business advisory with BridgePoint Group is solely focused on helping business owners take their business and themselves to new levels of performance, purpose and fulfilment.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I love to exercise and stay fit and healthy. Also reading and studying. Focus at the moment is leadership development as well as personal and professional growth. Psychology and human behaviour is fascinating to me as well.
Do you bring any hidden talents to the team?
I’m an integrator. You have detail-focused people at one end of the spectrum and visionaries at the other. I like to pull it all together and get stuff done, bringing the vision and the detail together to accomplish strategies, projects and tasks.
Any reading, watching or listening that you’d recommend for someone else?
I’m currently reading “The Integrated Leader” by Chris Dalton. The author has a PHD in organisational psychology and the book provides a really good grounding in lifelong management. It is like a guide for organisational and personal health and well-being.
What mantra do you live by?
I have a few…
If you’re not green and growing, you’re ripe and rotting.
Look near before you look far.
If you don’t go within you go without. This one is probably the most critical one for me. It encompasses the whole leadership slant I love to focus on.
Brad, welcome to the team.
