Brendan has for the last 40 years endeavoured to make some sense of why leaders do what they do and why an organisation’s culture is the way it is. In more recent years he has focused on working with organisations to create high performing safety leaders and cultures.
Brendan has worked both in the government sector (a little while) and in the commercial world (most of the time). He has held senior management roles across a range of different industries as well as working as an educator, trainer, consultant and advisor.
In 2007 Brendan met Ben Wilson, HSE Global’s Managing Director, when they both worked for an international management consultancy. Brendan and Ben collaborated on a number of global client’s strategic safety management projects and their collaboration continued when the Wilson Consulting Group (the forerunner to HSE Global) was formed in 2012. In 2013 the Global Safety Index (GSI) was launched with Brendan in the role of Operations Director. In 2018 Brendan moved to an advisor role for GSI and in 2020 after the amalgamation of the various associated businesses became a member of the HSE Global Technical Advisory Group.
Brendan has a Bachelor of Business, a Master of Education (Training and Development), and a Master of Open and Distance Learning.
