In the words of Malcolm Gladwell (The Tipping Point), Brian is one of the greatconnectors” in business, industry, and government. He leverages his affinity for bringing people together through his company, The Learning Forum, and specifically through the specific domain expertise working groups. In two of my colonels assignments, I found the informal network of like-problemed/like-“ranked” folks invaluable in how I thought, defined, and resolved problems. The new TLF Skills Working Group stems from Brian reacting to the business needs of other TLF members as they started discussing the “future of work” and “upskilling” and “career discovery” - Executive, Northrop Grumman

Brian’s thought leadership and knowledge-sharing had a tremendous impact on my journey. His personal network gives him the advantage of deep knowledge of cutting-edge topics. I also pay close attention to what Brian is saying. His knowledge forums are tremendously valuable and he has an excellent formula for bringing leaders together. - Executive, GE

I was fortunate to co-present at an Innovation Council at Unilever's Customer Collaboration Center. I was immediately and deeply impressed with the quality of people in the Council and their willingness to share their considerable experience and help each other. Since that event many years ago, I have attended dozens of Learning Forum meetings. I always get as much out of them as I attempt to contribute. I have met many new professional colleagues and made many new friends. - Founder at gravitytank, entrepreneur, and former professor of design and innovation at the Institute of Design, IIT
