Brian is a 1971 University of Toronto graduate of Mechanical Engineering, with current P.Eng. status. In subsequent years, through after-hours and in-company training programs, he developed and applied significant skills in Marketing, Sales, Management, Administration, Operations, Human Resources, Plant Management and Manufacturing, Distribution, Strategic Planning, Broadcast Video and Multimedia Development, Data Communications, Telecommunications, etc.
These skills were gained in companies such as Bell Canada, Northern Telecom, Call-Net Telecommunications, Unitel, Armstrong Jones, Timeplex Canada, Vaughan Chamber of Commerce, etc. at various non-management and management levels up to Assistant Vice President.
He recognized early on that the effectiveness and efficiency of most organizations, of any size, was strongly impacted by the inconsistent and ineffective “communications” inside and outside of those companies. With the varied and excellent skills he acquired, he formed his own media production companies, Video Excellence Productions and eTraining ROOM Productions, to help develop solutions to better meet the “communication” needs of businesses. His team is well equipped to work with all sizes of organizations, across many industries, and at craft, management and executive levels… better able to understand and interpret their corporate issues, talk at their level and then recommend appropriate and effective solutions.
