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.

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.
