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.
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 began to discover opportunities to deliver value 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, Paul Martinelli.
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 co-founded BizzGrizz in 2015. I focus my time on writing, speaking, and training.
On a personal note, I have been happily married to my wife Traci for 13 years and have four amazing kids ages 3-12. In my free time (let me know if you have some I can borrow:), I love reading and exercising.

The #1 Key to Your Success
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 5 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 clients. If you want to improve your results, you must learn to become a high-level communicator.
The Most Toxic Word in Your Business
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 of BizzGrizz 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.
The 5 Immutable Laws of Attracting Millennials
Millennials will make up 75% of the entire global workforce by the year 2025. They have more power, confidence, and knowledge than any generation in history. It’s imperative that businesses understand tendencies and buying behaviors of millennials.
In this presentation, Brent discusses the 5 immutable laws for attracting millennials to your business or organization. Using examples, experiences, and humor, this session will open your eyes to give you important perspective and some big laughs along the way.
Whether you are a baby boomer, millennial, or Gen X’r like Brent, you will come away with new ideas and action steps on how to connect with this dynamic generation.
What others are saying:
It isn’t often where we see an experienced insurance agent deciding to devote his life to helping other agents receive the kind of training that he received in his first years in insurance. Brent Kelly has turned that practical education into a mission that gives him the opportunity to share his passion and knowledge with others. In addition to crystallizing the theories of insurance production and management, Brent has a unique ability to communicate…an attribute not often found in today’s fast-moving millennial-based society.
There are few people I hold in higher esteem than Brent. Not only is he a stand up human being concerned with putting people first, but he truly knows the insurance agent and the insurance industry. I respect the fact that he was an agent first and now applies that knowledge in helping agents grow their business. I would do business with Brent 7 days a week and twice on Sunday.
Brent has a keen ability to think outside the box and provide value to his customers. If you are a new agent, have a new agent in your agency, or just need some fresh ideas on how to ignite a spark within your agency I would recommend utilizing Brent’s skillset. With almost two decades of first-hand experience in the insurance industry, Brent is sure to teach you something new, and help your agency flourish.
