At Taskmaestro we want to see you run your business more efficiently than your competitors and get the most from your staff in a more structured and innovative way. We realise that your staff are your key asset and if we can help you help them to achieve more for your business, then everyone wins.
We have developed a simple, yet innovative device which will remind your staff of the key tasks which need to be carried out in your business. It will allow management to always see which tasks have been done and by who. It will record all of your measurements which are needed for Hygiene, Health & safety and other compliance legislation as well as making sure that the important jobs are being done consistently and on time day after day.
Based in Warrenpoint, County Down, Taskmaestro have grown from strength to strength in Ireland and the UK. Because the product addresses a real and genuine need in a variety of businesses, where staff are having to rely on checklists and other paper systems, they successfully raised £500,000 to bring Taskmaestro to market and solve an age old problem which is…”How can I motivate my staff to think like me?”
Have you ever heard the expression “If you want something done right…do it yourself!”
Taskmaestro have made that expression obsolete.
Chief Executive Officer, Taskmaestro
Gabriel Bradley founded Taskmaestro in 2008 and is Chief Executive Officer. He is responsible for the development of the Taskmaestro task monitoring system.
He began his career in production management within the textiles industry, where he was responsible for the workflow of production through the factory. He was involved in setting up workflow systems and processes to continuously improve on production methods and increase productivity.
After taking a year out to travel and work around Australia, he came back to Northern Ireland to take on the role of Commercial Manager at SCA Packaging.
During this time Gabriel successfully opened two pizza businesses and he later left full time employment in pursuit of an entrepreneurial career in catering.
As a result of running two catering businesses, and applying the production management techniques to improve the workflow, Gabriel then founded Taskmaestro. He raised considerable angel investment to help develop the business and bring it to the global catering market.
During his spare time Gabriel plays guitar and is often spotted singing at concerts and venues around Ireland.
