Bryan has broad experience and understanding of how to successfully leverage partnerships for growth, and execute platform strategy, in both startup and scale up sized companies. This unique set of skills and experience he brings to HockeyStick’s services would be invaluable to any aspiring tech company.
Bryan has done an incredible job building & uniting the Xero & tech ecosystem community across APAC. He has rare IP & understands platforms and how to grow the partner ecosystems. I have loved our engagements over the years, and sharing insights and ideas as to how to build & enable a platform community. He'd be a key asset to any growing company with big aspirations to bring their partnership & platform visions to life.
Bryan and I have had the pleasure of working together for many years. Bryan's ecosystem knowledge combined with his understanding of the technology world has always positioned Bryan as a trusted and respected thought leader in all things partnerships and ecosystems. No doubt a lot of Xero's success is down to the powerful ecosystem that Xero has built and Bryan was at the centrepiece of bringing that to life. To now see Bryan share his knowledge with more scale-up tech companies to harness the power of partnerships will be a true gamechanger for anyone looking to work with Bryan.
It has been incredible to see how Bryan facilitated & grew the engaged Xero App partnership community over recent years. Far beyond 1-1 partnerships, there is a culture of sharing, engagement and helping customers to thrive through collaboration. I look forward to seeing HockeyStick do amazing things ahead.
Bryan has been a leading thinker in advocating for & building partnership ecosystems and platforms for many years. In my years working with him he’s been a strategic partner, a valuable sounding board, and has over time established himself as a reliable, trusted expert who can help solve tough ecosystem challenges. Under Bryan's direction HockeyStick is destined for great things, and will create significant value for those wise enough to engage their services.
Bryan was a key pillar of building, advocating and growing the Xero ecosystem right across the region for many years. We've worked closely together over many years across many engagements and he has always been amazing to work with, professional, outcome focused whilst still having fun. His company would be a key asset to any scale-up looking to unlock partnership ecosystem growth. I look forward to seeing HockeyStick go from strength to strength.

reZme engaged HockeyStick to build a launch strategy for our recently released exciting product Cherry. They were incredible to deal with, providing market research, insights and their experience to ensure we had a smooth launch based on best in class methodologies. We look forward to continuing to work with them ahead. Highly recommended!
We engaged HockeyStick's services for a workshop to help us to refine & expand our platform strategy. They were very professional & knowledgeable about the industry as well as being networked in order for them to drive forward with bold ambitions.
I worked closely with Bryan for over 3 years as a confidant & colleague. I truly appreciate how he challenges platform thinking & the best way to operate. If I am stuck on a problem or want a fresh perspective Bryan is the first person I come to. Watching Bryan push himself to grow & learn has been a catalyst for me, and others to do the same. I cannot wait to watch HockeyStick fly ahead, destined for greatness.
Hockeystick's expertise and vast IP was incredibly valuable for XBert as they built a robust growth strategy as we look to scale the next chapter of our business. They were able to quickly identify what we need to prioritize, and what resources are required to execute which will allow us to accelerate our growth plans.
