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 had the pleasure of working for Brad at Adcap Network Systems, as part of their Internship Program. Brad is an excellent mentor. He cares about making sure that all interns get to have a wonderful experience during the internship and that they can learn as much as possible, through meaningful projects and tasks. 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 am extremely grateful for the opportunity he gave me and for his continuous mentorship and advice.
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.
Bradford was on the panel of Talent Acquisition experts at The Ladders JobMobile networking event in Atlanta. He was candid, articulate, engaging and gave the audience actionable takeaways. I would happily recommend him for any speaking events, especially those involving the value of human capital and how companies can maximize their efforts with regards to their people and talent.
Bradford does a wonderful job of mixing humor and subject matter expertise to enlighten and engage audiences. Do NOT be alarmed if he walks onto the stage with an elephant head.
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.
