Brad Burton: From Manchester Council Estate to Multi Million Pound Business

“Beneath the bluff exterior of the self-styled “fat bloke from Manchester” is a shrewd  business brain” – The Times

Brad Burton isn’t your stereotypical successful entrepreneur. Rising from humble beginnings in a Manchester council estate, Burton left school with no qualifications, spent years on benefits and dabbled in drugs. Even now he rarely wears a suit, has a shaved head and massive eagle tattoos on his forearms.


But the fact of the matter is that this convention-defying attitude is exactly what helped him build a career.


In 2005, Brad was £25,000 in personal debt and delivering pizzas to keep his start-up marketing business afloat, whilst having to deal with his wife demanding that he "go get a proper job."


He ignored her. 8 years on, he's a highly successful entrepreneur. There are 4 impressive and varied aspects to the world of Brad Burton:


1. MD of the UK’s largest joined-up business network: 4Networking. Brad is member number 1 of 4Networking, which he founded in 2006. With over 50,000 online members and running over 5,000  events across the UK each year (+ some in Australia), 4Networking has reinvented and reinvigorated business networking. 4N is making a real difference to thousands of SME businesses.See
