Brian Garvey

Born in Manchester, England at the start of World War II. Brian grew up during a time when hard work was needed to restore a war-torn country. Learning early that the best way to keep on going was to Think, Speak and Act Positively. Starting his working life on the factory floor, he traversed a wide arc of interests, working in engineering, the entertainment industry and the hospitality industry.

In 1970 he emigrated to Toronto, working in a number of different fields Including film and television. Followed by stints in advertising sales, direct marketing and finally, publishing, when he traded in his "employee hat" to become an entrepreneur and business owner. He founded The Perkolator, a weekly publication with positive and entertaining messages, which he has operated for twenty-three years. Brian has now added author and speaker to his list of accomplishments.

Settled in Bracebridge, he put his knowledge into a book. Writing from his years of experience he published ‘Positively Speaking' based on his popular weekly messages seen in The Perkolator Through his publishing company, The Perkolator Book Company, he has published three other books:
'The Best Of The Perkolator, Vol One'.
