“Brian is a very creative thinker and strategist. His depth & breadth of experience in the areas of brand creation, management, and abilities to “tell the story” of an organization are exceptional. Brian worked with me to create a cross-functional communications team that broke down silos of information and operation and served to strengthen the organizational brand and story. I highly recommend him!”

“Brian goes beyond “branding” and gets to the “heart” of an organization. And, if you don’t know where that heart is, he will help you find it! His passion, creativity and experience are unparalleled. It was an honor to work alongside him and an even greater honor to call him my friend.”
Steve Caton
Principal, The Giving Crowd


“I have worked for/with Brian on various creative and strategic projects over the last several years. He has been gifted with true perspective – to see through the clutter and noise, to find commonality amongst the seemingly unconnected, to discern what helps and what hinders… what matters and what doesn’t, and to stretch beyond the obvious, easy and popular answers to develop clarity and vision for his clientele.

Brian’s depth and range of experience is vast. His working process is personable, perceptive and attentive. He is a unique combination of wordsmith, traveler, strategist, student, manager, philosopher and confidant. Those who utilize his professional services are fortunate. Those who gain his friendship are blessed.”

“Brian is a master facilitator with a keen creative mind. He understands the importance of every organization’s unique position and story, and more importantly, he knows how to draw out that uniqueness in powerful ways. He listens intently, thinks deeply, and speaks passionately.

If you’re comfortable with where you are and don’t have the courage to step outside of the norm, don’t work with Brian. He will push you out of your comfort zone. If, on the other hand, you’re ready to be challenged and invited to live out the best of who you are, give Brian a call. You won’t regret it.”
