Bradley Shende

Human Centred Technology and Social Impact Leadership


A natural Nerd-to-English translator, Bradley has also worked to build the world he inhabits. A pioneer in online and mobile-based digital content, he produced one of the first TV shows in North America to offer a Live streaming component and helped create a mobile content production platform that was subsequently sold to Research In Motion. He is also an accomplished commentator on emerging technologies, innovation, electronics, and the media.

This success catapulted his career into a perfect marriage of his production and communication skills to become the Executive Producer and Host of ConnectedLife. After an initial online season, ConnectedLife was quickly syndicated by Global Television, Shaw, Discovery’s, HowStuffWorks, and iTunes, reaching over 50 million viewers at its peak. Widely regarded as one of North America’s technology experts, Bradley appeared as a panelist on television shows and keynote speaker at conferences around the world. 

Throughout Bradley’s twenty-five years of experience assessing technology’s progress while producing digital and multimedia content, this pundit turned-entrepreneur frequently used his creative expertise to solve complex problems for Fortune 500 Companies. As a digital media consultant he has produced content strategies that have converted into hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue.

This hard work and dedication has made him the proud recipient of five Telly, two Summit Awards, the Coca Cola Living Positively Award, a TEDx Speaker, the 2013 Merging Media Award winner, a Brandon Hall digital education award, the 2008 NFF Innovator of the Year Award,  2014 Canadian Screen Academy Nominee, as well as an AMA award.

In 2015, realizing the world didn’t need another smart phone (or blogger talking about one) he began to take his passion for technological impact and pull focus towards social impact. He then had the honour of working with Al Gore on Climate Leadership, Helping build-up the Green Party in BC and Canada, Co-Founding an Indigenous Business Accelerator, Creating a Think Tank on sustainable economic development, and thus embarked upon a new journey towards deeper systemic change. 

Today he continues to spread his mission for demystifying complex systems, from technologies plateaus to grassroots social movements. His infectious passion stimulates us to embrace a future where new systems are understood, accessible, equitable, inclusive.… and fun.
