Individual-Speakers-Quote

He was wonderful! After his speech and Q&A he received a standing ovation from our students, and about a 1/3 of our audience stayed for photos. Brian uses his experiences to send a strong, heartfelt, and inspiring message to his audience. It’s rare that we would contract a speaker or performer that we haven’t ever seen before, but he was totally worth it.
