Brian MacNeice Show Notes

Brian MacNeice was working for a large advisory service firm. Brian began to worry as he reviewed the impact of his work. He realized that many of the clients he worked with were not interested in implementing what was recommended. That’s when Brian made a life altering change.

Brian MacNeice was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. As a proud Irish man he enjoyed a great childhood being part of a large extended family. He loved nothing more than a big family get together.

Growing up Brian could always be found on the field but he realized that he wasn’t going to be a professional sportsman. So he started studying how teams became high performing.

Brian still carries a passion for sport. He is involved in professional sport in both Rugby Union and Cricket. He is a semi-professional rugby referee and officiate in European and International competitions. Also, he recently stepped down after 8 years as a National Team Selector for the Irish cricket team.

But Brian’s primary degree is in Computer Science, a fact that amuses his 3 kids when they see him struggle with modern technologies that they are totally comfortable with!

His professional career has seen him work in a wide variety of industry sectors as an advisor to senior management teams.

Brian is an expert in organizational performance and high performing teams. He advises leading Irish and international clients on driving improvements in the performance focus and culture of their businesses.

Brian has led numerous assignments with clients in a diverse range of industry sectors, including Food and Drink, Pharmaceuticals, Enterprise Development, Health, Financial Services, Software, Technology, Sport and Leisure and Utilities.

Brian is also the author of the book Powerhouse: Insider accounts into the world’s top high-performance organizations that features some of his research into organizations such as the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh, Doctors Without Borders, Mayo Clinic, Finnish State School Education System, Kirov Ballet, Tata Group in India, Southwest Airlines, US Marines Corps, New Zealand All Black Rugby, St. Louis Cardinals, The Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and others.

Brian still lives in Dublin with his wife Miriam with three children. All boys – Charlie aged 16, Jack 15 and Dan 9.
