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

Relax, it is all make-believe.However, don’t relax for too long because your influencing skills…See More

Obfuscation of Values

Last week I wrote about transparency of decision making as transparency builds trust. Staff can see how the values of the organisation have been applied.But what if your organisational values are obfuscated? That is, you have not stated them…See More

Transparency or Transparencies

In my blog last week I wrote about unconscious bias and the role of advisers in helping decision makers understand their biases, so they have more clarity in their decision making. However, having clarity of one’s own decision making is not…See More

The Unconscious Bit is the Problem

While the concept of “leading alongside” is a noble one for an internal adviser, it is not accomplished easily overnight. You see, the problem is the “unconscious” in “unconscious bias”. The decision makers you are trying to influence…See More

The problem with “Challenge” and “Oversight”

The last couple of weeks I have been pointing out some of the failings of the Three Lines of Defence (3LoD) Model of Risk Management. The red tape it creates and the outsourcing of responsibility for managing risk.However, there is…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
