In 1986, he founded Ovation, a training company that has helped
thousands of business executives, politicians, and other professionals become
dynamic public speakers. Brian has perfected the Earprompter, a cutting edge
technique for delivering speeches word-for-word without using notes or memorizing.
It is a dynamic presentation tool - once used only by actors - that is easy to
learn, easy to use, and helps "Speak Like a Pro" whether in the boardroom, the
classroom or on stage. One of few Earprompter experts, Brian offers the training and
the equipment necessary to make it happen for you.
In 2009 Brian officially teamed up with Louie Stevens with whom
he's worked independently since 1987, to form Ovation.TV Inc., a company which
produces films from concept and writing, through videoing and postproduction, to
delivery. The films are dynamic, the testimonials are glowing, and the prices are
reasonable, especially considering that between them, they have garnered over 30
international film awards (and counting). When you need a film for your business,
give Ovation.TV Inc. a call.
