Want a great strategy?

It’s funny how everyone wants a great strategy but not everybody wants to deal with the risk of achieving the strategy. I think it is because the following statement is true:“Risk management is good management.”Hence most of us will think and sometimes say, “Doing my job is managing risk”. And most of us think we are doing…See More

Bryan has helped thousands of leaders to achieve their goals over a career spanning 30 years in engineering, insurance and management consulting. His passion is for making the difficult and complex become doable.

He has worked with organisations across just about every sector of the economy, all levels of government, not-for-profits large and small and a range of rising star SMEs.

Bryan is like a translator. He is comfortable in complex and challenging environments as he knows how to find pathways to a simpler world with eminently achievable goals.

Bryan’s mantra is for leaders to do the “hard-smart work” others won’t. To do the research, analysis, risk assessment and creative thinking that others only do half-heartedly. Hard-smart work is what sets successful organisations and leaders apart from the pack.

Whether speaking from the stage, authoring books, coaching executives or facilitating workshops, Bryan’s ultimate goal is to help organisations live in a world with clarity of decision making. A clarity that energises executive teams, empowers managers and excites their staff.

Amongst many volunteer roles Bryan held the position of President and Chairman of the Board of the Risk Management Institution of Australasia (RMIA) from 2012 to 2015.

Bryan published DECIDE: How to Manage the Risk in Your Decision Making in November 2015.

Each week I post a Blog about Risk, Strategy and/or Persuasion. I keep my Blogs light-hearted, short and sharp. They cover a range of topics from how to create value from risk programs and executing strategy through to how to persuade people to buy-in to your crazy new ideas.
I am interested in
Speaking engagements, Consulting offers, Business deals, Expertise requests

Here is the essence of a conversation I had with a senior leader in a large publicly listed company:-

Me: How’s business?

Senior Leader(SL): Great!…


Your Mum and Dad were right

You know that old saying,“If something’s worth doing it’s worth doing well”? Why don’t we apply the same sage advice in business? While being world’s best would be fantastic, I am not talking about that. Just doing stuff well is all I am asking.…
