Bryan K. O'Rourke

CEO, Adviser, Entrepreneur & Keynote Speaker

Helping people and organizations realize their biggest opportunities is in my DNA. Delivering trans-formative keynotes and writing thought provoking books and articles that help open minds to new possibilities is another passion. Some consider me to be an expert in technology, business and the fitness and health club industry. I serve as a leader in a variety of organizations and invest in people and companies I believe in. I enjoy playing piano, traveling the world and being a dad.
Thanks for visiting,
-Bryan
