Jamie is the owner of multiple successful businesses who has more than 14 years of experience in the industry!

In this episode, you’ll learn: · How Taekwondo changed Jamie’s life for the better. · Despite only starting training at the age of 27, he became a Taekwondo World Champion in the year 2016. · Jamie met his fiance in the school where he trained in Taekwondo. · He struggled with bullying for years until he decided to learn how to defend himself. · Teach your children to self-defense; it is a huge mistake to guard them against the realities of life. · His journey and background in the business industry · And much more! ~ About Jamie Keeling: Managing Director, Jamie Keeling, founded Bulletproof Business on 4th January 2018, after he stepped away from running his family’s multi-million-pound construction business. Coming from an entrepreneurial family, business is in his blood. He joined the family business in 2005 as a laborer, and over the years worked his way up through the ranks. First entering the office environment in 2006 as an admin assistant, within 12 months he was running the entire purchasing department for the business. He went on to manage the company manufacturing facility alongside his purchasing role and was officially made a director in 2012. After handing over the manufacturing facility, he moved on to managing the multiple contracts and sites operated by the business all over the world. In 2015, he hired his first business mentor and together with his fellow directors created explosive growth that saw their sales more than double from £2.2m to £4.5m in the short space of just 12 months, which saw Jamie leading a team of 60 and being promoted to Managing Director in December 2016. He was the driving force behind creating the systems needed to thrive as a business, and during his time with the company built many departments from scratch, including completely re-structuring the business in January 2017 to install the solid foundations that were needed to ease their growing pains, and ensure a financially healthy business. He didn’t always see eye-to-eye with his co-directors, and he knows first hand how challenging it can be to navigate family dynamics alongside all the other challenges that come with being in business. He chose to exit the business in December 2017 realizing he had taken it as far as he could and it was time for a change; this was one of the best decisions he has ever made, and in January 2018, the first iteration of Bulletproof Business was born. Jamie had started doing some freelance consultancy working with other business owners on their business strategy throughout 2017 and hasn’t looked back. Since then he’s worked with scores of businesses across the UK helping start-ups find their feet in getting established, working closely with early-stage businesses to accelerate growth, and delivering specialist consulting for established 6/7-figure companies across multiple sectors to create high performance, profitable operations with a focus on financial management, project management, and growth strategy. Jamie is results-focused, and his core values of integrity, honesty, and operational excellence are reflected in every aspect of his work. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/wakeupwithpattikatter/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/wakeupwithpattikatter/support
#026 Jamie Keeling & Kevin Bennison, "podcast trio" part 2: on public speaking, the human needs for contribution and significance, and dystopian conspiracies.
Personal Development Mastery
This is the second half and the conclusion of an utterly unique and exciting interview! It was the first time I did a podcast "interview trio" with two awesome and inspirational guys. Jamie is the host of "Optimise me now" podcast and founder of the Bulletproof app. Kevin is just a bloke who does stuff and talks about things, and can't really define himself - and about to deliver a TEDx talk about this. Listen to this episode to find out: Public speaking: is it about contribution or about feeling significant? Our identities and challenging them. Saying things as we see them, versus saying things as they are. The coronavirus situation, the censorship of the 5G conspiracy theories, and the dystopian Orwellian future. The concepts of "circle of influence" and "circle of concern".

How Role Based KPIs & Robust Systems Can Drive Business Performance With Jamie Keeling
Business Mastermind Podcast
‘When you can develop an interdependent culture, you empower the people in your business to find solutions’ In this episode, Gavin is speaking to Jamie Keeling of ‘Optimise Me’ Jamie explains the importance of role-based KPIs for a company and how they can bring a cohesive and interdependent culture in your business. If you want to understand the power of systems, processes and KPIs in driving your business forward, creating a virtuous upward spiral instead of a downward fall then listen in now. KEY TAKEAWAYS What is business resilience? Your perception of reality defines your reality it is about mindset. In our Universe, everything has a polarity. If there is a problem there is a solution if there is a challenge there is a route to overcome it. Your sole job as a business owner is to find solutions to problems How do systems support solutions? The flow of data between the different aspects of business is the key to success when you have blockages in the flow of data the business begins to fail. it is vital to have in place systems and infrastructure to find out what people need, create what they want and deliver it. It is vital to have the right data, at the right time and in the right place. When you have a system you have accountability, responsibility and an interdependent culture. How can role based KPIs transform a business? The key is to assign KPIs to the role this enables the individual undertaking a particular role to know explicitly when they are achieving success. The KPIs are both lead and lag indicators for a business. The higher level KPIs will be based around growth, profitability and retention, other role-based KPIs will be very focused on individual activities. The absence of structure and accountability results in everyone thinking it is someone else’s responsibility to get something done. Rather than moving forward everyone is fighting fires all the day, the business is always in a reactive state. The KPIs allow you to highlight any part of the system that is not functioning properly. When there are systems, processes and KPIs in place people feel cohesive, they feel they can rely on each other in an interdependent way. Clearly defined responsibilities, accountability and KPIs enables people to have not only the mental capacity to successfully fulfil their own responsibilities but to also take on more working as part of a high performing team BEST MOMENTS ‘Systems, processes and KPIs all drive culture within a business’ ‘We are now hyperconnected and everybody wants to feel that they have made a difference’ ‘Everybody has their own interpretation of success in a situation and it is necessary to have systems in place to ensure consistency ‘ ‘The KPIs allow you to highlight any part of the system that is not functioning properly’ VALUABLE RESOURCES Optimise Me Now! podcast Optimise Me! website ABOUT THE GUEST Jamie Keeling With 13+ years of real-life business experience, Jamie is a business coach with a difference.
