The intent is for this site to be a quick and easy ‘go-to’ when searching the name Brian Carew-Hopkins. To keep this page ranking in the name Brian Carew-Hopkins I will mention it a few times.

Probably the best place to get a career info  and my current roles is linkedin. My working life has circulated around business. Business development, startups, growth,  international trade, business mentoring mentoring and business mergers & acquisitions.

I like to paint. Oils mostly.  I have had some sporadic phases of production, won some prizes at exhibition, and had a few solo exhibitions. Like many people with an artistic bent, I find painting meditative.  I will do more. I’ve recently moved my art to vooglue.com.

My philosophy on life is to always look on the brights side. Pretty straight forward really.  I like the quotation by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger”.  I authored a book, so its by Brian Carew-Hopkins, that recounts a  major event in my life and some amazing tools that enable anyone to remain positive and successful despite life’s setbacks. I will link to it here when it is available.

Foremost I am a simple family man.  By the measure of my wonderful family I believe I am among the very few, and most fortunate of men. I deeply thankful for that and my many other blessing.

If you want to get in contact with Brian Carew-Hopkins I am a regular user of social media, so to contact me try Linkedin or the facebook page under the links link below.

So whats in a name. I am constantly asked from whence my name came. I was simply born with it.

The exact reason why the ‘Carew’ was incorporated into the family name has been lost to history.  Until my fathers time, there was no hyphen, it was a middle, or second middle name all family members carried. Today all the other branches of the family are ‘Hopkins’, except for the Australia branch.

I have to labour over the hyphen every time someone is looking me up in their database, but then it sticks in the memory because it is unique.

And unique is an understatement. At the time of writing, as far as I am aware, there are only 16 “Carew-Hopkins’s” on the planet. Now that is a rare name.
