Frozen in time by data talk

Is your board showing signs of being either completely over the data thing or are they frozen in time because no one has been able to give them a logical path forward? Both situations have the same cause, everyone is sitting around staring at the data tree of life, pondering all that can be, and no one is stepping up to…See More

Telling Tales to Boards

Sanjay Verma was 5 years old when he was at parent teacher night with his older sister. He turned to her and asked why other kids in the room had parents there and he didn’t. It was then his world turned on its head. It was too much for his young mind to fully comprehend but he knew what his sister told him was big. She…See More

Custom Boards

His focus is heavily on co-creation. It’s more partnering than…See More

Experience on Boards Needs to be Properly Tapped

It is certain that having the right experience is one thing, but getting the most of it is another. Especially when it comes to boards. Each board member needs to fulfil their fiduciary duties; however, reliance needs to be placed on individual board members with specific skill sets. And along the way, there are challenges…See More

Milestones Schmilestones

Recently I was listening to an interview with retired Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke. He was asked how he felt when he scored his first century (100 runs) for Australia. He described incredibly strong emotions. The interviewer then commented how funny it was that a score of 98 had no comparison. Clarke agreed…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
