Over the years, Brian has taught, motivated and inspired 1000s of CFA Program candidates, MBAs, Financial Industry professionals and aspirants at Exam Success and at many firms, banks, brokerages and higher-learning institutions including Waterloo, Concordia and Wilfrid Laurier Universities — to name only a few. He has been a featured instructor at the Study Seminar for Financial Analysts at the University of Windsor (now known as the CFA Program Windsor Week offered by Kaplan Schweser) and has authored and been quoted in numerous industry publications. He also holds an on-going record for being amoung the top 1% most-viewed Linkedin profiles. One of his many notable accomplishments is the development of the Queen's University Certificate in Financial Analysis CFA Program and the signature Prof. Gordon Approach™, the methodology behind his distinguished and proven learning system.
In his role as Director of Learning at Exam Success, Brian oversees all Corporate Training and CFA Program, CIM, CFP, CSC content development and instruction and most enjoys figuring out what makes students tick and then creating a study environment that’s instantly conducive to learning.
Brian believes strongly in the wisdom put forth by Benjamin Franklin: "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." It’s a quote that has helped frame Brian's no-nonsense learning-by-doing teaching style.
Family, Hockey Coaching and Travel take up the little spare time Brian has when he's not teaching or writing.
