Introduction

Brett Beveridge believes in combining people and technology to help companies reduce costs and increase sales whilst always exceeding customers’ expectations.

Brett is a retail expert, experienced entrepreneur, ForbesBooks author, and speaker.  From waiting tables to working in papaya fields and selling cell phones out of a van, Brett Beveridge leverages decades of experience within retail sales and technology to build strategies for today’s biggest retailers and Fortune 500 companies. Brett has been directly involved with the development, opening, and operating of over 1,000 retail communications stores nationwide, as well as the management of large-scale, high-performance field sales teams.

Harnessing the Entrepreneurial Spirit

After Brett sold Let’s Talk Cellular & Wireless to Nextel, Beveridge continued to harness his entrepreneurial spirit, raising millions from national venture capital firms like Goldman Sachs, to co-found LetsTalk.com, which became one of the largest online e-tailers of wireless products and services. In 2012, LetsTalk.com was acquired by Brightstar Corporation, the largest wireless handset distributor in the world.

Over the last 20 years, Beveridge has successfully founded more than 20 companies and used his experience to help national wireless and technology companies with reorganization, profit turnarounds, mergers and acquisitions, and IPOs.

An Entrepreneur’s Journey

Beveridge learned the value of hard work from a young age, performing various jobs from waiting tables to even working in a papaya field. As a 23-year-old senior in the University of Miami, he started selling cell phones out of a van with a college friend, and impressively turned that bootstrap company into Let’s Talk Cellular & Wireless, which became the largest independent mobile wireless retailer in the country at the time with close to 300 stores nationwide. He would eventually take that company public and sell it to Nextel.
