Love Brian's style and delivery. And the fact he has a lovely lilting Scottish accent. A very concise and informative course which will be invaluable for me to revisit as I work on improving my "confidence for life". Feeling really motivated, thanks Brian.

“Working with Brian has changed my life and business!”

Prior to meeting Brian, I was unsure of what direction to take with my book writing coaching business. He assisted me in seeing the true value of my gifts, talents, and products while providing insights into how to best present them to an international audience. Brian encouraged me to be a powerful catalyst for action to heart-centered entrepreneurs that have books that need to be written.

Working with Brian has been a truly life-changing experience for me. His insights and compassion have revolutionized the way I engage with others personally and professionally. His patient understanding example has taught me to be more authentic and increased my willingness to be vulnerable. The tools he utilized and recommended empowered me to take a more holistic approach to increasing my business.

I whole-heartedly recommend Brian to anyone ready to make real changes in life and business so that they can experience the success they once only dreamed was possible. When you work with Brian you will have your expectations meet and far exceeded!

Beth GaydenPublishing Coach, Orange County, USA

"I started working with Brian following the recommendation of a friend. I’d recently changed job roles and moved overseas. Different people, different cultures, different type of role. It was a big change. Brian was recommended as someone who might be able to help me adjust and also help me make the most of the opportunity.

The recommendation really paid off. Brian’s a very easy person to work with. He is easy to talk to and has a great talent for identifying issues that might be having a negative influence and then helping develop strategies to overcoming them.

And the strategies work. I feel much more confident when speaking with strangers, working with colleagues from different professional and personal backgrounds, and when dealing with situations that would have previously overwhelmed me. I’m much happier in work and outside of work, and the whole world looks entirely different. A much better place."

Brian is an excellent coach who takes time to understand what his clients really want. With patience and just the right amount of aligning me with my values for motivation, he has helped me get organized and be well on my way to not only identifying my goals but achieving them.
