Guest Profile

Brian Conaway


World-record breaker, author, successful entrepreneur, and co-founder of 2 Hour House, Brian Conaway has been a builder his entire life homes, relationships and now, he helps build the impossible.

A Graduate Master Builder, Brian serves as President of Conaway Homes - one of the most respected home construction firms in Tyler, Texas since 1978. His leadership has perpetuated what his father started before him, building homes that truly reflect the character of the family: solid, substantive and distinctive. Craftsmanship is just as important to Brian as character, and it shows in the positions of leadership and the accolades he has had during his career. Brian received the Builder of the Year award in 2004, and has served as Area Vice-President of the Texas Builders Association. He was Director for the National Association of Builders and sat on the board of the Better Business Bureau. But it was his completion of a daunting building project that caught the attention of the world.

In October 2005, this average man, with the support of 800-plus volunteers, set a world record in Tyler, Texas. They built a 2,249 sq. ft. home - from the ground up - in 2 hours, 52 minutes and 29 seconds. This 2 Hour House took two years of planning, highly synchronized collaboration, and benefited six local charities. Ultimately, it was the projects strategic outcomes - uniting meaning to mission, people to purpose, and action to impact to achieve the impossible- that far exceeded everyones expectations and shaped Brians future.

The 2 Hour House served as a catalyst to pioneer new building methods, galvanized an entire community to work together, and initiated experimentation of innovative production techniques. This adventure generated breakthrough concepts, that when applied, would benefit every entrepreneur and CEO building a business. Brian captured the key lessons from the experience by writing the 2 Hour House book. In 2007, his business partner, Jose Feliciano, transformed the 2 Hour House event into an eight-phase executive training program for business leaders across America. They also added a powerful DVD to their collection of teaching tools. The company will launch an interactive workbook and global apprenticeship program in March 2008. Their book and DVD are quickly becoming best sellers.
