Brian’s background

While Brian is now an inspiring international speaker and author, he was born into a travelling fairground family. Further to a nomadic childhood, he left school early with no qualifications and unable to read or write…

Brian then joined the family amusements business, through which he established a nightclub and became the country’s youngest licensee. Unfortunately, during the UK recession of the late 1980s the business collapsed he lost what seemed like everything: his income, his home and his marriage. He was 29 years old, £1 million in debt and still relatively unable to read or write.

It was at this seemingly low point that Brian discovered the keys to success: that you can change your life by changing your thoughts and feelings about it.

Using simple but powerful techniques, Brian learned to hold positive thoughts by setting goals, and through those goals he gradually transformed both himself and his life.

20 years later, and Brian is an international speaker on human potential, and has empowered hundreds of thousands of people with his unique systems for success.

“Of the hundreds of speakers I have seen, Brian Mayne is the most inspiring. He is, quite simply, the very best.”

David Taylor, author of ‘The Naked Leader’
