Brett Burden - One of Melbournes most experienced and award winning Business Coaches.
Brett became involved in business in the mid 1980s and and during this time he was encouraged to share his common sense approach to business growth with other business owners. Brett began addressing small groups but before long he was addressing groups of up to 500 business owners nationally and internationally in areas such as teamwork, leadership, sales and goal setting. Brett also worked one-on-one helping individuals discover hidden potential within their business.
The types of industries Brett has been involved with are quite diverse, including property development, national retail and wholesale distribution to manufacturing and importation. During the last 15 years Brett has been involved in 2 start-up businesses. Although no longer associated with either company Brett is very proud of the fact that these two businesses are still flourishing today.
In late 1999 Brett was asked to head up a new venture in the booming ‘Internet Service Provider’ (ISP) industry. 2 months after the business started, the industry faced the biggest crash of any sector since the industrial crash of the 1930s. Whilst 2/3 of businesses within this sector had either sold out or shut down, Brett’s company not only survived but was also awarded the title ‘The Best of the Best’ alongside some of the giants of the telecommunication industry.
In 2005, as soon as the internet business was packaged and ready Brett and his partners sold the company. Brett decided to take some time off to spend with his young family, and it was during this sabbatical Brett was introduced by a friend to ActionCOACH Business coaching. It didn’t take long before he realised that working with and assisting people in all areas of business was an opportunity too good to pass by.
Brett still receiving acknowledgement.
In 2010 Brett claimed “Coach of Year’ for his efforts in the prior year from amongst the most awarded team of action coaches in the world. Not content to leave it there Brett followed up by taking home the most prized trophy available to a coach at the 2011 Asian Pacific Conference. His efforts through 2010 saw him acknowledged as the coach with the “Best Client Results” by ActionCoach’s CEO and founder Brad Sugars.
“This is the reason I coach. Out of all the awards on offer this Best Client results trophy is the one I wish most to have sitting on the shelf in my office. I know for me the biggest rush is when I’ve been able to help make a permanent change for the better in a client’s life”
