 Bridge Climb

Book a TEC BridgeClimb Express and hear the BridgeClimb Story – Exclusive offer for TEC Members and Guests

Hosted by Todd Coates - CEO of Bridge Climb

Until 1998, the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge was a ‘picture postcard’ view.  16 years on from the opening of BridgeClimb, the Bridge is now a globally famous ‘bucket list’ experience.
At the All TEC Day in 2010, Todd shared ‘a behind the curtains’ peek into how BridgeClimb had balanced the ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ of the business.
He remarked at the time that the future journey would require new thinking, and so it has!
Join Todd as he shares how BridgeClimb has ‘turned itself upside down’ and ‘disrupted itself’, whilst always being conscious of the Jim Collins maxim - ‘preserve the core AND stimulate progress.’

Success is dangerous. One begins to copy oneself, and to copy oneself is more dangerous than to copy others. It leads to sterility. Pablo Picasso

Invisible Marketing – and the hidden drivers that make us buy

Hosted by Ashton Bishop, Head of Strategy at Step Change Marketing


TEC's 2013 Speaker Of The Year, Ashton Bishop, pulls back the curtain on why some marketing strategies flop and others fly in a preview of his new TEC workshop.

In marketing, the things that often make the biggest difference aren’t always obvious – in fact, they’re invisible to the untrained eye. 
Invisible Marketing takes you through an effective three-step model that will transform your company’s ability to communicate with prospects and customers alike:

1) Trigger – What’s going to get you noticed?

2) Frame – Buying decisions are made on value, and value is decided relatively. So choose your frame, and choose it wisely – or it will be chosen for you.

3) Fuel – How do we make it easy so our communication methods become self-sustaining and scalable?
