Bryan’s Books

The number one comment Bryan receives
from CEOs after his facilitated workshops is:

‘That’s not what I was expecting,
we’ve never had a conversation like that before.’

Whether one hour, or two days, Bryan is a natural facilitator.
When it comes to his training, people leave energised
and enthusiastic with a smile on their face.
For those Bryan mentors it is his piercing insights that expose
people’s gifts, making them want to come back for more.

Transforming risk from a compliance activity
to a valued leadership imperative

Transforming the relationship between risk
