We are so sad to hear of Brian's passing. Our condolences are with the Doran family in their time of need.
As a consultant I worked with Brian while at Greenwich Hospital. The most powerful memory was his desire to help people. Whenever I spoke to or saw him, it was because he was trying to help people become more successful. He truly touched the hearts and minds of the people he interacted with.
Our prayers are with the family.
