"Brian's Keynote at the 41st McMaster World Congress was absolutely phenomenal. Thank you Brian Lenahan for coming, your passion and energy inspired us all!
Amelia Wat, Co-Chair at McMaster World Congress
Brian led a 2 hour session with our Senior Business and Technical leaders focused on AI and how the changing landscape is affecting Financial Institutions. Brian is a very knowledgeable, engaging speaker and facilitated some meaningful group discussions that opened up everyone's thinking to future possibilities. Through early discussions with Brian in advance of the session he was able to tailor his material to the group. He clearly did his homework regarding our Organization which allowed for more detailed discussion specific to our business. Comments from the attendees were very positive. The only negative comment was that time went by too fast. Brian left the team wanting more...

I’ve worked with Brian to validate and identify possibilities for a new project in the residential planning and design field. His knowledge of artificial intelligence and integration of technology into a new domain was extremely valuable in developing the concept. Brian is a pleasure to work with, he is engaging, attentive and professional and I look forward to continuing working with him on future opportunities. - Philippe Beauparlant, Founder & Principal Beauparlant Design speaking engagements
At the close of the two-day learning, participants shared this to the group:
“I’m going to share on LinkedIn how I can use this knowledge to help my clients”
“I now believe that knowledge of AI will be a differentiating factor for a consultant.”
“There are practical applications of AI that weren’t there 2 to 3 years ago and this field will accelerate. If we don’t get in now the learning curve will be higher and more difficult later. I found the last two days incredibly valuable. I realized that I did indeed need to learn about AI.” speaking engagements
