Jumping on his bike for the 1st leg of Ingenious Oz, Nigel works primarily as a keynote speaker talking about his travels throughout Australia, the people he has met and lessons derived. Two years ago he wrote ‘Game of Inches’, published by Wiley and Sons, telling many of the stories he captured. Adding to this he has now ‘Game of Inches’ - a training and facilitation business helping small to medium businesses grow through incremental innovation and constant improvement. His methodology is based on the lessons he learned. When not riding his bike, speaking at conferences he lives in country NSW with his wife, 2 children, 4 horses, dog, cat and 2 chooks.
Brad has been causing havoc at BT Publishing since helping found the company in 2000. Prior to this he spent five years as a journalist and news editor at Rural Press Ltd after completing a BA in Applied Communications Studies. He is also an avid scriptwriter, receiving development funding for Screen NSW for one script that remains in development, and being awarded Official Selection Status of the international screenwriting competition Oaxaca Film Fest 8. A co-written script he is currently working on about Bob Hope’s unexpected 24 hours in Laurieton NSW towards the end of WWII recently received favourable written comments from a recognised script assessment agent for Screen Australia and the Australian Writers Guild. He is married and has two boys, the oldest of which is currently studying to be a policeman.
