What began out of necessity has become not only a passion, but a benefit to those he works with. In 2006 Brian was asked to be a sales manager, the only problem was that week after week he put the same guy to sleep, in less than 10 minutes! That may be a talent, but not a good one for a sales manager.
Since then Brian has taken every opportunity possible to improve his speaking skills. Stand up comedy, motivational speeches, emcee at Charity events, Speaker at Networking events, Toastmasters and he even sang with an orchestra in front of eleven hundred people.
Combining his outgoing personality, presentation skills and over thirty years in the corporate world, Brian has created Strategies of Success.
His strategy for success is to help you achieve your success.
Brian honed his interviewing skills while hosting the Strategies of Success weekly radio program. He also was the Co-Host of Comedy to Go Inc on air. This radio program highlighted the comics, venues and organizations that support the activities of Comedy to Go. Through his partnership with Comedy to Go (CTG) he has performed as a stand up comic and has shared his gift of gab by being the auctioneer on a few occasions. Brian actively assisted his CTG partner Keith Godwin when promoting Recovery Comedy and to this day the two are equally focused on providing valuable events to the corporate community.
Brian has also been the Executive Producer for Live it Up TV with Donna Drake.
