Brian is committed to helping business owners get more out of life from their businesses and Absolute Clarity operates to a set of values that reflect this commitment.

George Bernard Shaw describes clearly the values that drive this business:

“This is the true joy in life – that of being used for a purpose recognised by yourself as a mighty one. That of being a force in the world, instead of a feverish, selfish clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die.

Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I’ve got to hold up for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”
