Our Clients

I’ve found my coaching with Brian to be extremely valuable for a number of reasons. The advice he has given has either dovetailed or reinforced what I had heard from other senior level colleagues about how I need to modify certain behaviours to change my role in the company to become a more effective leader.

“Brian has the ability to understand not just what will make you successful in business in general, but what will help you in the culture you are in right now. It was important to hear a voice outside of the company. Brian has shown expertise both in business and life coaching, emotional intelligence, a willingness to connect and an honesty in assessment. I would have no hesitation to recommend him in future.”
