BlueSky Experiences introduce first ever licensee


11th December 2015

Perthshire-based industry leading experiential learning and corporate team building provider, BlueSky Experiences have introduced their very first licensee, David Bradley, with plans to expand the business’s reach by establishing partnerships with individuals or businesses with similar values and will offer their skills and expertise to those looking to set up their own corporate team building ventures.

Originally from Kent, new licensee, David, has an incredible wealth of life and leadership experience, from fruit farming to leading soldiers into warzones, which makes him ideal for building his very own team development and training venture, with the added support and expertise of BlueSky Experiences.

After enrolling in the army and training to be an officer at Sandhurst in the early 90s, David served with the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment. During a difficult tour of Iraq in 2004, David was severely injured by an explosion during a patrol mission which led to 4 years of rehabilitation and being medically discharged from the army.  

David commented:

“After I was medically discharged, I began being invited back to Sandhurst and further afield to talk to cadets about leadership and teambuilding. I was getting the opportunity to help people to develop these skills and realised quickly that this is what I love to do and decided to pursue a career in training and team building.”

David continued:

“I knew from very early on that I needed a partner to develop my vision. In early 2014 I went to the Farm Business Innovation Show where I met James and Suzie from Blue Sky Experiences. I was really impressed by what they had achieved with BlueSky. So much so, that I knew quickly that BlueSky was the right fit for me as I could tap into their experience and it would enable me to grow.”

James England, Managing Director of BlueSky Experiences commented:

“We are delighted to welcome David to our extended BlueSky family and look forward to working closely with him and offering our expertise, particularly in the important early stages of building his business, Red Apple Thinking.

“To continue to develop and grow our business and celebrate its values, we have embarked on an exciting journey to expand our reach through licensing our brand and the unique team building and team development services we offer. We hope that David is the first of many partners looking to set up their own venture with the support of BlueSky Experiences.”

Since joining BlueSky Experiences’ growing extended family, David has been learning as much as he can from his new licensors and coming up with a plan to launch and develop Red Apple Thinking in 2016.

“The BlueSky Experiences team have been providing me with advice on what services to offer, how to plan and organise a development day. I have seen a lot of the activities run at their HQ in Methven near Perth. All of their activities are extremely well delivered and have purpose so, at the moment, I’m figuring out which of those activities work best for me and learning as much as I can about them.”

David added:

“A venture such as this would definitely appeal to people who have a passion for leadership and teamwork and the passion to pass on their skills and experience to others. These are very exciting times for me. Building the business won’t be easy, but I know, with the support of the BlueSky team and lots of drive and determination, it will be worth it.”
