Brian Higson

With a passion to design and build solutions, Brian started his career as an Architect and it was through this journey that he discovered computer aided design (CAD). His Architectural thesis on interfacing CAD models to analysis applications forged his two decade career in the Automotive, Aerospace and Defence industries modelling, analysing and manufacturing products across the globe. He was responsible for the establishment of a joint venture manufacturing technology centre based in Adelaide pioneering solutions for rapid prototyping, immersive technologies and simulation.

Wanting a change of scene Brian was a founder of a biotechnology company using naturally occurring microbes to degrade organic waste and stimulate better plant growth used in bio-remediation projects around the world.
Now as a co-founder of Realising-Potential he co-authored the book “Connecting the Dots” and developed the realising success framework to empower organisations to drive and deliver change.
