Bryan Nickel

Founder/Host

 

Bryan founded Vancouver Trivia Party in 2013. What started out as something fun to host quickly turned into something more when he found that not only was he having a great time with his audience interacting every week, he was also helping his clients increase their bottom line. 


Now expanding into the corporate world with his experience as a trainer and sales manager with various companies, Bryan hosts team building and sales workshops that are fun and interactive.

 
When he's not doing trivia, he is a stay at home dad to his 3 kids having a great time exploring Vancouver every chance they get!
