Brian Passon takes every opportunity to go against the status quo, he just may make someone a bit uncomfortable in the process and overall doesn't take himself very seriously. Brian also believes that behind every traditional headshot there are a plethora of other pictures that show the "real" person. Brian has spent the last several years advocating for authenticity and helping people and organizations see what really is possible. Brian speaks and consults with individuals and organizations to inspire more meaningful, strategic and joyful experiences for employees, clients and customers alike. He believes that to change the culture of a workplace we must be focused on long-term objectives that are supported with the right infusion of strategy, science, creativity, and “Edutainment.” As a true creative and extroverted entrepreneur, Brian has started up or partnered on a variety of businesses, all of which at the heart, truly center on creating community and experiences and teaching others in novel and memorable ways. Currently, he is partners with Geno Church at The Shared Ship where they focus on building internal community inside an organization and then creating external communities of advocates who love and support that organization/brand.
When he is not trying to improve culture, community and experience, you can find him teaching his children about the finer points of woodworking, fixing up an old Victorian house, dreaming up new West Coast dance moves while making a carrot cake from scratch at the same time. Originally from Oregon, Brian calls Windsor, Connecticut home, with his wife and three daughters.
