Introducing Brian’s Keynotes


How to Find Your True North: A Guidance System for Life

Bring your people on a robust, hands-on journey to find their true authentic selves.

Too often, we allow our feelings determine how we act instead of ensuring our actions determine how we feel. But how do we know what actions to take? In this talk, Brian will demonstrate the immense power of creating a values-based framework. And he will show how our values provide a pathway to help us define what’s important in our lives and provide the guidance to get there.

  2. Aiming to highlight the significance and meaning of company values and culture
  3. Dealing with major organisational change
  1. A framework that will help you to identify and develop your values

How to Pause and Create Space During Emotionally Challenging Events

Give your team the capacity to successfully control their internal response to external events.

Where do our real struggles lie? Through a combination of neuroscience, wisdom from Eastern philosophy, and his own lived experience, Brian expands on one of his core beliefs: It is not life’s everyday challenges that cause us to struggle, but how we react to them is where success unfolds – both personally and professionally.

  1. Customer-facing teams working within a fast-paced, hectic environment

  2. Executives under pressure to react to a changing working environment

Beyond Resilience: How to Use Adversity as Fuel for Growth

Watch your people learn how to use life’s challenges to their advantage, and ultimately use adversity as fuel for growth.

Resilience is developed over time, through lived experiences and facing the hard knocks of life head-on. In this talk, Brian explores how we need to move beyond resilience and adopt life challenges to work for us, not against us. Through his own life story of overcoming heroin addiction to completing his PhD from Trinity College, he shows why our own resilience is one of nature’s most powerful forces.

  1. Sales executives and teams that deal with rejection on a regular basis

  2. Customer service teams who deal with challenging customers and complaints on a regular basis

  3. Project teams who face unforeseen obstacles, changes, and uncertainties that can derail their plans.

  2. A new perspective that will help you to bounce back from setbacks using obstacles as fuel for growth.

  3. A powerful visualisation technique that will help you to rehearse for future challenges
