Bradley and I have had many conversations about inclusion, belonging, how to inspire people to make change, and how to enjoy the process. He is a trusted confidante, and I know he will always remind me to keep the focus on the results, AND on the importance of the process. His perspective, lived experience, empathy, learnings from his years doing this work and his ability to connect with many different people makes his leadership noteworthy.
It’s not hard to tell he has been a sports team member and coach, each at high levels. Having that lived experience teaches valuable (and sometimes humbling!) lessons that can be applied in all parts of life. His understanding of group dynamics allows him to change tack in mid-session, or in the middle of a client contract; his situational awareness is excellent.
In April, we were hosting a national museum conference, and Bradley and Matt offered one of the keynote sessions. After a couple of conversations where they asked about the audience, the desired outcomes and the other sessions, they developed a bespoke presentation for the group. It was excellent and it wove in film clips, personal stories, audience interactivity and time for reflection; it was a hit. That support for community in a way that was thoughtful and truly meaningful was impressive, and I will never forget it.
To wrap up, Bradley Daye was born a leader. Intelligent, charismatic, athletically gifted, from a renowned African Nova Scotian family. He understands the responsibility of leadership and he shoulders it with grace, humility and wisdom. Along the way, he is empowering and growing many more leaders. His company is committed to its clients and the community it serves, and we are all the better for it.
