Brian Quirke’s business career spans 45 years much of it spent in banking & finance where he held a number of leadership positions in both support (Head of Human Resources) and in the line (Head of Retail Branch Banking).
Since departing the banking industry he has moved through a number of senior roles in professional services including Outplacement, Recruitment and into entrepreneurship for the last 10 years as an owner of PHR Consulting where he is a leadership and career coach.
He is far from convinced that leadership had improved much, if at all, during his time in the commercial world and believes that this is having a detrimental impact of the quality of the lives many people live.
He believes that through improving the skills of leaders you create a trickle down effect that not only engages employees but also ultimately creates better lives.
Brian discusses how careers were viewed in the 1960’s for a young person entering the workforce and how things have changed for the baby boomers, Gen X and Gen Y. Brian talks about his passion for coaching and how his career transitions have prepared him well for the role he now plays in the lives of his clients who are experiencing change in their careers too.
