Book Brent to Speak at Your Next Event

Finding the right speaker for your event is critical. Some of the most impactful events I have attended had a dynamic speaker that brought enthusiasm, practical ideas, and a plan of action to start after the event. My goal is to bring these same attributes to your next event.

Sharing my story at the John Maxwell International Conference:

A bit about me:

Although my parents would argue that I began my speaking career at birth, I “officially” began my speaking career in 2011.  After starting my blog and writing for national publications in that same year, I discovered more ways to deliver value in front through speaking in front of live audiences and was hooked.

Over the past 5 years, I have presented for state associations, insurance agencies, business groups, and corporate events. Every speaking engagement is tailored to meet the needs of your audience. I have had the pleasure to share the stage with leadership greats like John Maxwell, Seth Godin, and Paul Martinelli.

I have presented leadership keynotes and workshops throughout the country focused on insurance leadership, influence, communication, and growth.

After a 15 year career as a commercial lines property and casualty agent, where I was named one of the top 12 young agents in the country in 2012, I started my speaking and training business.

On a personal note, I have been happily married to my wife Traci for 13 years and have four amazing kids ages 13-4. In my free time (let me know if you have some I can borrow:), I love reading and exercising.

The 4 Stages to Multiply Your Organization’s Results

4 Steps to Gain Leadership Influence to Eliminate Complacency, Build Relationships, Grow Revenue, and Multiply Your Results

Leadership is influence, nothing more nothing less. If you want to be a better leader, you must become a person of influence.

This high energy presentation will teach you simple, insightful ways to interact more positively with others, and watch your personal and organizational success of off the charts.

Brent will cover these 4 key areas of influence:

  • Modeling
  • Motivating
  • Mentoring
  • Multiplying

When these principles are applied you will see employees respond with new enthusiasm, managers will reach more people, and sales producers will break records.

The Most Toxic Word in Your Business

Understanding and Defeating Your Biggest Challenge

There is a toxic word that is preventing the growth of today’s businesses. Your growth stops when you lose the tension between where you are and where you could be.  In this powerful keynote, Brent Kelly will challenge you and your agency to stop settling and start stretching. 

You will learn why so many people are unwilling to stretch, what stretching truly requires, and how stretching will set you apart from your competition. Brent will challenge your thinking and help you reach for your true potential.

For businesses to grow and prosper today, it takes more than simply implementing new processes, it requires the development and growth of every member of your team.

This session will inspire you and your entire team on how to reach their true potential and maximize your results.

 

Stop Convincing and Start Connecting!

3 Ways to Create Authentic Connections and Reach Your Full Potential

What do you think is the primary cause for your positive results? 

It isn’t talent……It isn’t experience….the primary cause for any successful business, leader, or sales producer is the ability to effectively communicate and connect with their target audience.  This all starts with the proper mindset and attitude. 

In this fun and high energy keynote presentation, Brent will discuss the 3 authentic communication practices that separate low achievers from the high achievers.

You will learn how to find common ground, keep your communication simple and enjoyable, inspire your listeners, and how to stay authentic in all your relationships.

Leadership is influence. Great communication increases your influence in every situation.  

This presentation will teach you how to capture attention, gain trust, and earn loyalty with anyone. If you want to improve your results, you must learn to become a high-level communicator.

Brent came recommended to us by another speaker (who is also an insurance agent). After talking with Brent, we realized that he would be a great fit as our keynote speaker. His energy, excitement, and willingness to help agents was apparent in the feedback from our attendees. As an added bonus, Brent was very easy to work with during the planning process. He was very communicative and always offering to do more to help!

Here’s what you can expect from me and my team:

  1. Prompt, professional replies to your phone calls and email messages.
  2. A personal phone consultation with a member of my team prior to your event, so we can better understand how I can best serve you and your audience.
  3. An announcement about your event on my blog and social media channels. (This assumes that your event is open to the public and you want more visibility for it.)
  4. A professionally prepared, dynamically delivered presentation focused on achieving the outcomes you want with your audience.
  5. A custom resource page, exclusively created for your attendees. It will include the slides I used in the presentation, along with links to books, articles, and other resources I believe will be helpful.
  6. A quick follow-up communication after the event with someone on my team, to make sure I met your expectations. (I also want to know how you think I can improve.
