Education Specialist

Kane

BRADFORD

Enthusiastic and Results driven

PROFESSIONAL PROFILE NATIONALITY/RESIDENCY

Kane Bradford is a well travelled, experienced young professional

who has spent much of his career working with elite/high performing

teams, be they athletes or academics. Kane enjoys the challenges

associated with helping these high achievers attain success and works

collaboratively to facilitate this.

An education specialist with extensive experience in leadership roles,

project management, policy development and strategic integration,

Kane is a driven, committed individual with exceptional people skills

and proven leadership capabilities.

Kane lives to be challenged and believes “persistence is the key to

success”. He is an enthusiastic worker, who is incredibly results driven,

and tackles challenging tasks and situations in a considered and

methodical way.

By way of example, as a member of the Senior English Department

at Brisbane Boys’ College (2008), Kane experienced a significant

increase in the number of concerns from the student and parent

body surrounding course delivery and the marking of senior work in

particular. As a result, he set about finding ways to understand why

the problem was occurring and why people were feeling ‘cheated’

by the system.

As a result of his investigation, he was able to prove that the department

lacked transparency in its processes. Consequently he worked with

others to produce a detailed handbook that clearly outlined the policies

and procedures, enabling visibility to this important stakeholder group

and improving relationships through engagement.

Kane enjoys working in highly motivated teams, public speaking and

thinking strategically. Over the next two years, Kane would like to focus

on more senior leadership or managerial opportunities, continuing to

help others realise potential, principles and ethics within themselves

and/or the organisation, in new and diverse environments, particularly

in transitional and fluid environments.
