More about Bill Brand
Bill enjoys balancing his long-term 1 – 1 executive coaching relationships with working collectively on experiential group facilitation that delivers both individual transformation and valuable business outputs. He traces his love of working collaboratively to extensive in-depth ensemble experience in the performing arts, and uses his theatre skills to help clients unlock their own physical and expressive powers to engage and connect authentically with others. Bill’s involvement in the learning and development field began with his interest in arts-based training and his years as an associate of The Corporate Theatre. He continues to act and will soon be seen on the big screen in a comedy with Anne Hathaway. He was the Austrian minister of war in the BBC’s recent adaptation of War & Peace last year, and was recently seen as the University of Heidelberg provost in the Ron Howard helmed Genius, National Geographic’s first scripted series.
Bill is passionate about using dispute resolution to transform communication practices by replacing competitive conflict styles with cooperative ones to achieve conciliation resulting in mutually preferred outcomes and "dropped hands".
Bill has worked with clients in Europe, North America, and the Asia/Pacific region. Living in twelve different countries left him with an abiding curiousity about global art, culture, history, and cuisine, and accounts for his ability to order food in a bewildering variety of languages.
A keen cyclist, mountaineer, and glider pilot, Bill is a trustee of Ginkgo Music, a charity that advances global awareness of the critical importance of biodiversity through the creation and promotion of projects linking music, the arts, and ecology.
He also plays guitar and harmonica, and sings in a Bluegrass/Cajun/Swamp Blues band called the Good Honeys, and has performed at many of the UK’s music festivals, and internationally as well.
