Brien Keegan

Founder, Managing Director, Connector

I support Kiwi growth businesses in creating a world class people experience by helping them gain clarity, grow their team, move to a high performance culture and develop their people.

I believe that successful Kiwi businesses can make a real difference to New Zealand and our communities. I want to see Kiwi businesses grow and help them make a true and lasting impact. Creating more productive, united workplaces filled with engaged, happy individuals.

We have an awesome team. I work alongside a group of talented humans, that care for each other and together create an environment where we all have a genuine sense of belonging. At the same time, we push ourselves to be the best that we can be and not complacent.

I genuinely love coming to work every day, I get to work with business owners who inspire me and have worked with some amazing people. As a Taranaki native, I value long and trusted relationships, working hard to make a difference and looking after others.

As someone who has founded and led a range of businesses through different stages of growth I appreciate the challenges involved in scaling a business, sourcing the right people for the right roles, and inspiring energy and engagement - for myself and the team. We started Sprout to help businesses navigate these challenges and succeed. We are also very lucky to be able to help individuals gain work in company’s where they can also make an impact, where they are close to the founders and can gain an amazing breadth of experience.

I love connecting individuals and am motivated by seeing the success in others. What is your why? What do you believe in? How is your past, helping shape your future?
