Throughout our years of business, we’ve worked with companies of all shapes and sizes, both national and international. Take a look below to see who we’ve worked with, and what they have to say about us.

What our clients say

I have worked with Brian for many years, from first being introduced to his services at the company I worked at before last. Being involved with a number of fast growing companies in the IT sector, maintaining the skills and efficiency of new managers has always been a massive challenge. Brian as an individual, with his company, Focus Motivation Ltd. has played an integral part in bringing the management team to where it has needed to be. Through a series of workshops, the teams have learnt practical skills such as giving feedback and effective appraisals, together with equally important abilities such as motivating employees and effective communication. Brian’s theory is that management is a skill, which can be taught, and I have seen the results of this in the success of the companies.

Brian builds relationships with his clients and really seeks a deep understanding of company culture and goals. This enables him to target specific areas where managers need development. I have also used Brian as a personal mentor from time to time over the years.

I first met Brian in the early 90’s when he delivered an excellent training course to a group of rookie service managers. I was one of them! The acid test of any training course is whether it enabled the attendee to behave differently and achieve something better. I’m pleased to say that it did

Graham Drew
Commercial Contracts Director

Brian is an extremely focused and committed individual. I consider myself very fortunate to have experienced and participated in many of his classes. He captivates the audience attention through his enthusiasm and passion whilst delivering key areas on how to improve on your management skills. His personality and drive is infectious and you will leave his seminars feeling sharper, refreshed and motivated. The skills that I have learned and implemented from Brian have not only improved my management career but have enriched my personal life too

I have used Brian on several occasions for my management development and found it to be a very worthwhile investment. He has an ability to engage with people on any level and combined with his inspirational style of delivery, he certainly gets results. He was instrumental in unlocking the potential of my managers and getting them to work far more effectively

He has an engaging style which is both motivational and entertaining, making the course not only informative but enjoyable

Rob Norris
Director of Service Delivery

I have had the pleasure of attending Brian’s management training course on two separate occasions. Brian is highly motivational and delivers his course in an enthusiastic style, which makes it so much easier to remember and apply his techniques. He has a great ability to instil the belief that everyone is capable of achieving their goals

Absolutely brilliant. Inspirational and motivating!

On behalf of the UK and international staff of The Media Vehicle Group, may I offer a unanimous thank you for your keynote speech. I do believe that leading media groups tend to be the most hard-nosed and difficult to impress. Your keynote inspired everyone!

Tony Whittle
International Sales Director
The Media Vehicle Group

Brian keynoted our annual conference and made a massive contribution to its success. His combination of humour and hard hitting observations left our delegates energised and inspired, not an easy feat with an international audience.

Mick Marrison
International Sales Director
Centennial Ltd

We hired Brian as a breakout speaker for the Bodylife conference in 1995. He keynoted the event two years later and has made such an impact on our audiences that it is impossible to leave him out of our programme. He has a stunningly powerful message and an extraordinary ability to communicate with pretty much anyone he comes into contact with.

Tim Webster
Managing Director
Bodylife UK Ltd

Brian is an excellent presenter and has a charismatic personality. He held the attention of the conference and was inspirational. He played a major part in making our conference a great success.

Steve Dennis
Operations Director
Luminar Leisure PLC

Brian Gibbons was outstanding! He managed to engage the team, to deliver the message we wanted and he had the organization buzzing for the rest of the day. Brian is an excellent speaker and I would have no hesitation in recommending him. He managed to grab the audience (not always easy when people’s first language is not English), he had people nodding, laughing and participating within seconds. We are delighted to have had the opportunity to work with him and definitely would use him again for another audience in the company. Mission accomplished!

Olivia Brown
Managing Director

I would like to congratulate on your choice of speaker in Brian Gibbons who was an absolutely perfect choice for our audience. It is fair to say that I have never seen a diverse group of employees of that number so engrossed in any speech they have received previously and that was due to Brian’s delivery style and his subject matter which were ideal for our needs on the day

Clare Glen

Brian is an excellent motivational speaker with a charismatic and entertaining style. We always get great feedback on his presentations.
