This approach is so effective that clients can complete a typical 8-week project within a focused 1-week accelerator workshop.

Bryan’s experience spans the entire spectrum of industries, from establishing an energy derivatives trading desk, to supporting the transformation of several US Health and Human Services departments by expanding affordable care to its citizens, to managing an olympic marketing campaign, to redefining the strategic direction for an American “internet-first” bank. Bryan now uses that experience with PAD39 to help companies of all sizes refine their competitive edge and deliver breakthrough performance.
