Few interns have the opportunity to report directly to a director who is also a coach and mentor—but I did when I worked for Brad. I had the pleasure of interning for Brad over some of the first few months of his employment with ADCAP Network Systems and was continuously impressed by his ability to dive in to every challenge and opportunity head first without a sweat of hesitation. One of the many invaluable lessons I learned while observing Brad was the importance of valuing every employee who steps into your office and communicating that great value to them. Not only did I watch Brad communicate to his employees in this uplifting way, but I, a temporary intern, also felt inspired by his coaching and investment to my future endeavors. Brad is the type of director that I keep in touch with and will definitely continue to reach out to as my career advances!
I would encourage anyone to get to know or work for Brad.

I had the privilege of interning for Brad at Adcap Network Systems, and it was such a pleasure. He definitely knows everything you need to know about HR, Recruiting, and Talent Management. I not only learned a great deal while working for him, but I also turn to him any time I face a new challenge at work. I am incredibly grateful for everything he has taught me in my career.

Brad presented at my STEM Talent Acquisition Strategies event recently and amazed me and the audience with his story and presentation style. He is incredibly personable, engaging, passionate and witty - and he brings all of these qualities to his presentations.

The content he delivered was right on the mark and had a real impact on the attendees. If possible I would have him present at all of my events. He gives participants actionable strategies to utilize and ignites the "a-ha" moments within us that we all strive to have.

It's evident that Brad cares about his messaging, brand, and the people he shares his expertise with, by his attention to detail before and during events.

I would highly recommend Brad as someone to connect, collaborate and create with.

I can honestly say that the experience I gained under Brad’s mentorship allowed me to move to the next step of my professional career.

I had the privilege of attending Brad's presentation at Workforce Live! in Atlanta ('13) on bridging talents gaps via apprenticeship programs at AdCap. His energy and enthusiasm for his guidance of AdCap's unique talent culture came across clearly and genuinely. He is a gifted ambassador for improving business results through the focused development of people.

Working under Brad was an amazing learning experience for me. His dedication to the development of the internship program was clear, as my entire time spent with him was one of the most worthwhile work experiences I have had. Not only was he a dedicated leader and roll-model for us, but Brad was also a friend we could feel comfortable coming to if we had any concerns or new ideas to explore. The training he provided me and the other interns allowed us to grow and advance in our fields with great success- as well as enabling us to realize that a work environment doesn't have to be boring. Brad was honestly one of the best teachers I have had, giving me the confidence to take on my next steps in life and the knowledge of what a job could be like if I wanted it.

Brad Wilkins did a great job presenting on apprenticeships at our Workforce Live event in Atlanta. His topic was fresh--turning to the old idea of apprenticeships to address current problems of skills shortages and high unemployment. And his delivery was by turns informative, funny and poignant. He is a high-energy guy, and his enthusiasm was contagious.

Brad is one of the most energetic and dynamic speakers I have ever seen. I will never forget when Brad first arrived in Romania to help us launch and train 40 new Devix Corporation team members. Brad began his presentation to the team by giving a 5 minute speech in Romanian – even though everyone on our team spoke English. From that moment on, Brad had the attention and respect of everyone on our team. His ability to ask the right questions to get an understanding of the issues at hand instead of assuming he knows everything means he could make an impact on areas as diverse as software developers, graphic designers, administrative support, sales and senior management. He adapts like a chameleon yet at the same time is always straight forward and true to himself. If I was wanting to establish a culture of teamwork, discipline, and integrity, Brad would be the first person I would call.

II first met Brad in 2006 at Devix Corporation, where we often worked together on various communications projects and operational issues. Brad is a creative thinker and natural leader who keeps his eye on what's best for the organization at all times. I also found him to be a collaborative team member, someone who is willing to work together to achieve a common goal. Brad demonstrates a real knack for sales and business development. His global knowledge, unique skill set, and vision really set him apart. His outgoing nature and ability to communicate make those attributes even more visible and accessible. I see great things ahead for him.

Brad was a great leader to our recruiting team during my time with WSE. He developed a virtual training program for a very diverse group of sales professionals that was phenomenal! He understands how to develop employees on a career path that gives them the reins and fills the needs of the company. He consistently delivered content in an engaging manner and with checkpoints to gauge retention of the material. And everyone knows how hard it is to keep a sales person's attention! I would highly recommend Brad for any role that highlights his skill in career development and training.

Brad is an exceptionally intelligent, motivated and entertaining person to work with. I have never in my life been able to put full trust and security into someone I work with, and Brad always delivers. He may work himself to death, but that's what makes him such a success in what he does. He is always determined to finish what he's started and obtain the best (and only the best..he refuses to settle) of everything from team members to internal business protocols. He knows how a business should operate and succeed, he just gets it. He's truly gifted in this area, and I feel priviledged to have not only worked with Brad but to have learned from him as well.

Having the opportunity to work with Brad and hone in my sales training skills with WSE was amazing.The training and how Brad facilitated the information was fresh and extremely organized. Brads' enthusiasm for teaching the WSE concepts was bar none. Every day for 2 weeks he was on his "A" game his energy was never ending. I believe this experience was the best sales training I have ever received. Brad set the bar very high for what to expect from a corporate training curriculum.

I am recommending Bradford based on my experience of my hiring, training and personal relationship within the WSE Organization. Bradford was very friendly, inquisative and focused during the interview process. He knew what he was looking for and what direction he was going.I was very encouraged by how he handled himself and created a trustful relationship and environment. Bradford developed and oversaw the training proceedures which were very focused, engaging and intense. He managed to keep a consistent flow of positive information keeping everyone focused and on track. The training modules were very precise and often entertaining, Bradford is full of energy and has been not only a positive influence in the different roles he has assumed but has always been willingly accessible any time his knowledge was needed. Because of his enthusiasm, desire to succeed and his positive nature Bradford would be a welcome addition to anyone desiring to improve their Training and Leadership Design and Development, Needs Analysis and Assessment proceedures or wanting an enthusiastic, out of the box presentation from time to time. Bradford has been a positive influence and I wholeheartedly endorse him and his professional qualities as a leader, mentor and business associate.

I joined Wilkins Fitness in September 2011 after many years of sales experience with a fortune 100 company and other companies. Working for Wilkins is so refreshing! Brad has been so helpful and encouraging from day one. What I realized from day one is Brad and the rest of the Wilkins Executive team are genuinely concerned about the success of everyone. A lot of company executives seem to have the motto "what can you do for us". Brad and the other Wilkins executives have a motto which says "what can we do to make you a success". This is not a motto written somewhere in the company bylaws it is a motto they show by example. I am very happy and proud to be associated with Wilkins Fitness. I could not have made a better choice.

Brad is a very intelligent person with a wit about him that is unmatched! He's extremely "in tune" with his sales people and always goes the extra mile to help you succeed. The guy sings, tells a pretty good joke and every once in a while he'll come out of the woodwork with a foreign accent just to make an important topic sink in. In my book; it's thumbs up for Brad Wilkins.....................

Irene Chan

I have nothing but accolades for Brad. Though this position is my first foray into sales, Brad never made me feel inferior to the rest of the group who have years and years of sales experience. He has always been supportive and patient, answering whatever questions I had. He is dependable, conscientious, and hard-working, oftentimes working into the very late hours of the night.

Being a high school mathematics teacher for over 14 years, I know the difficulty of engaging students for a 90 minute period class. That being said, I found Brad to be extremely engaging. His lessons were both humorous and thorough. Though the training is long, Brad and the Wilkins family do their best to give someone all the tools and knowledge one needs to succeed. They do not believe in hiring you and then throwing you out to the wolves to figure out on your own. I believe the Wilkins training is superb. When I speak about the things that I've learned from my training with my friends who are successful, seasoned sales reps, they reaffirm that I am receiving outstanding training. I could not have asked for a better "first" sales job than the one with Wilkins Fitness!
