John and Carrie have an incredible ability to uncover the hidden business problems and opportunities that most overlook. They achieve this by bringing a fresh perspective and going beyond the obvious and expected. They look deeper and wider at the business, analyzing it from all the angles. And from there, they turn their learning into killer charts and a clear and compelling story backed by data that all stakeholders can understand. At Grey, we’ve worked with The Bradley Group numerous times to help redefine the marketing and advertising objectives for our clients, and to build powerful business cases that prove the effectiveness of our work. It goes without saying, they are highly, highly recommended.

“I had the opportunity to engage with The Bradley Group when I was just starting out with my business, Chronically Simple. Their insight and expertise was invaluable to my business growth. Both Carrie and John shared their knowledge and professional experience to ensure that my business was able to narrow down our overall strategy which allowed us to ensure we were focusing our efforts in the right areas. I look forward to working with Carrie and John again in the future as my business needs change.”

“We hired John and Carrie to conduct a deep dive analysis on one of our largest wine brands. They were tasked to review our strategy and identify key factors contributing to our decline. We were extremely happy with their level of analysis and recommendations on building our new strategy. I also went through their persuasive presentation training module. It was very comprehensive, unique and to the point. I walked away from the experience with confidence and eager to apply what I learned. I enjoyed working with both of them and respect their professionalism and extensive knowledge. I would hire them without hesitation on future projects. “

“Gravity Partners engaged John & Carrie to facilitate “Thought Leadership” and “Building Strategic Influence with Clients” training sessions and I’ve since had the pleasure of working with them for a number of years. The sessions were a solid mix of presentation material balanced with group exercises, and they’ve easily adapted their modules in both style and content to ensure they remain relevant in our current landscape. Perhaps most importantly is how quickly the team applied their learnings and demonstrated their newly developed skills. John & Carrie are nothing short of professional, personal and I dare say effective.”
