Highest Recommendation! – Martin Brems

“Brian’s keynote was rated in the top and the feedback fantastic!
The collaboration with Brian has been outstanding – and he really lives his Thinklikeafan philosophy – especially when he took his time to talk and engage with the participants at the conference all day long, evening and even night. Both before and after the event, Brian has been very flexible regarding customer sessions and meeting the press. I hope to be able to work with Brian again in the future. My highest recommendation”

“It was like meeting an old friend. Brian was genuine, willing to answer questions, and has an incredible charisma about how he presents himself. While we networked and chatted in San Diego, Brian let me know he would be traveling to DFW where I live and work for Dex Media.

We were able to squeeze in an all day session at Dex Media in May of 2017. Brian did an absolutely phenomenal job coaching and strategizing with our Leadership Teams. He was able to help them learn techniques and skills needed to bridge the gap between Millennials and Baby Boomers.”
