About Brian Fretwell
Brian Fretwell began his career as a teacher in a juvenile corrections facility while completing his MBA coursework in the evening. This unique experience launched him into what has been his life’s work, helping individuals learn, understand, and apply brain based approaches to Leadership, Engagement, and Culture Change.
As a speaker and consultant, Brian has spent a great deal of time delivering in environments that have historically been a challenge for communicating the importance of “soft skills.” From nuclear engineers, to Oil and Gas chemist’s, from coal miners, to data analysts in tech companies, Brian enjoys making somewhat intangible subject matter more tangible, logical and inspiring for all audiences.
