Miles Burke believes in running a socially responsible business based on respect, saying it’s possible to “be successful in business without being a bastard”.

Bam Creative is an award winning boutique design firm specialising in web site and web application design and development.

According to Mr Burke, the company always had a high level of community involvement and a strong culture of respect.

“The respect and honesty we have among our clients, suppliers and even our competitors, is definitely one of my proudest business achievement” Mr Burke says.

Career guides

• Understanding the importance of creating an organisation where every employee has a sense of ownership and ‘buy in’.

• Belief in a high value of honesty. Mr Burke has turned down large profitable projects because he didn’t believe his business had the skills sets required to deliver an outstanding result, or because the client’s values and beliefs did not match his own.


Mr Burke founded the Australian Web Industry Association in late 2002 and has been the chairperson since its incorporation. The association has grown from a small WA only chapter to having chapters in most capital cities.

Mr Burke has been a member of the organising committee for Styleaid and sponsored various charities.

Top tips

“There is not one inspirational quote which has motivated me, more a collection of quotes and ideals. One that I recall well, and encourages me is ‘Winners never quit and quitters never win’.”
