Global Insurance Underwriting Executive

"I started working with Brian following promotion into the leadership role for the european region. He has been a key driver of my accelerated development in the position, especially with respect to engagement and spontaneity. Brian structured his approach at the start in a way that suited my learning style and remained flexible throughout, which I felt kept the process very relevant and personal from start to finish. It helped that Brian has senior level business experience himself which made our session more practical than theoretical and although the reading materials and psychometric tests were insightful our most productive sessions were face to face. Brian listens really well and seems to remember everything, storing comments away to challenge your thinking when you least expect it. A great experience I would strongly recommend."

Regional President, Global Services Group.

He selected options for supporting material that have enabled me to follow a process of self development whist relying on our face to face meetings for investigation, inspiration and sound advice to better my CV, interview technique and self confidence".
