Three Keys presents Shane Bradley

Conqueror of the online world, Grab One founder and Shop HQ’s director Shane Bradley will be in Palmerston North discussing his journey with Three Keys at Aberdeen on Friday 8 August 2014.

Known for being the man behind the success of online couponing giant GrabOne, Shane has not rested on his laurels since selling the company to APN News & Media in 2012. Instead Shane has invested his money into his newest venture, Shop HQ.

Pet.co.nz and Baby.co.nz are the fi rst of a series of websites to be launched under Shop HQ., which sees the selling of fast-moving consumer goods, supported by real-life warehouses in New Zealand and free delivery.

Facing being completely broke at the age of 23 didn’t stop Shane. Instead, he bounced back to successfully start three online channels - Finda Ltd, Sella.co.nz and GrabOne. Currently, he is involved with Neighbourly.co.nz, an initiative to create connected communities, and Sugarcard.co.nz, a small business customer loyalty programme.

Shane’s story of perseverance comes with the advice “to never forget, never forgive and never give up”. Having faced negative feedback and even harsher comments when attempting to gather interest in his early endeavours has only added to Shane’s determination to succeed. He has now gone on to become a recognised name in the online world.

Three Keys speakers are all infl uential people in varying branches of business with unique stories to tell. They bring to the members an insight into their world, and tell their stories of what led them to the path they are on today.

Shane is the sixth and fi nal speaker of the 2013-14 Three Keys series. Previous speakers have included; Sandy Geyer, Shane McManaway and Tim Alpe. Tickets for this event can be bought online via www.3keys.co.nz
