Just Over the Horizon

You and your colleagues may often talk about what disruptor is just over the horizon. You might talk about AI, machine learning, robotics and someone will throw in a comment about “big data”. You might discuss how there is so much hype around future disruptors but little real action. But still, there is an inkling that there is a disruptor for your industry not far away.…See More

The Refructure Phenomenon

There are many things that occur to disrupt you. From what I am seeing from my travels across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors, right now one of the biggest disruptors is the dreaded restructure. There are so many restructures at the moment it is really f#(%ing with a whole lot of people’s heads. Hence a “refructure” phenomenon.Why so many restructures at…See More

Your Pressure Relief Valve Must Work

There is a pressure cooker analogy for driving business performance. That is, apply plenty of heat to the pot (which is your team) and keep the lid firmly shut. The team will push harder to reach their goals. As a safety mechanism, all pressure cookers have a relief valve and so the analogy goes, make sure you don’t overdo it and build up too much pressure. The reason is…See More

Irregular Regulators

While regulators demand red tape (see Wage War on Regulator Imposed Red Tape), the business world at best sees it as a necessary evil and at worst as costly handcuffs. One of the comments a colleague made on that blog was…See More

Wage War on Regulator-Imposed Red Tape

Regulators love red tape. They may not admit it, but they love it because it allows them to provide evidence that they are effective regulators.Have a think about what is driving regulators and the response by industry (and check out the industry dynamics figure below). The regulator wants you to deliver on your promises and therefore have happy customers. Otherwise the…See More

Painful vs Persuasive Presentations

Surely not in 2019. Surely not.I was at a conference last week and the standard of presentations was appalling. Not what they had to say, it was how they presented using PowerPoint. Eighty percent of them, including ones from the “Big 4” firms were just crap. How about this for a starting “Top Ten” list of what not to do when presenting:Using crap fonts, crap images, crap…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
