His talks

Brian has been working on a new concept over the last 18 months. Rather that speak at an audience, Brian wishes to engage with the audience in his own personal way. Over time and with experience, he has developed a niche product - an intimate private chat between Brian & an audience that is moderated by a professional journalist a relaxed chat between the two.

The discussion takes approx. 25 minutes and audience questions are welcomed then for a further 20 minutes. Brian uses his own experience giving insights on a wide variety of topics: Team Building, Culture, Personal Development, Leadership and Planning and much more. It can be moderated by the interviewer towards subject areas relevant to topics at a specific event and is an entirely bespoke for the room. To protect the client and Brian, no media are present during the chat. Brian thinks it is a more engaging, insightful & audience-led experience for all.
