Impact Relevance Podcast #1: Meet Adam Bradford
In episode #1 of Impact Relevance Podcast, Jordan Anthony Swain interviews Adam Bradford. Adam, 26, is a social entrepreneur and youth campaigner originally from Sheffield, UK. Aged 12 he was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, a form of autism and has run campaigns and workshops in schools to raise awareness of the condition. When he was 14 he was suffering with his school work and decided to enter the Big Challenge enterprise competition, putting his computer skills to work and fixing computers for teachers. He won the competition twice and took home £10,000 worth of prizes. He quickly gained a place at Dragon's Den star Peter Jones' Enterprise Academy and became a National Ambassador for Peter's Foundation, speaking at schools and colleges across the country and on national television about youth entrepreneurship. Adam also spoke at the MADE Festival in Sheffield alongside then Business Secretary Vince Cable MP and Peter Jones himself. Levi Roots, from Reggae Reggae Sauce, offered to mentor Adam and has become a lifelong friend. Adam's business which now runs campaigns with young people all across the world, has worked with the likes of Google through to the University of Australia. Adam's work led to him becoming a Queen's Young Leader in 2016. He received a special award from the Queen and met Prince Harry at the awards ceremony at Buckingham Palace. Adam also serves as a Board Advisor to the Queen's Commonwealth Trust, of whom Prince Harry is the President. He is an Associate Fellow of the Royal Commonwealth Society and writes for the Guardian, Independent and Huffington Post.
