Kevin was our closing speaker this week at our national convention for Success Group International. We have been hiring professional speakers for the last 20 years to come to our annual events. Kevin's message was inspirational and motivational. He made us laugh and cry, but most of all, he made us all recognize the hero within. I cannot recommend him enough!

Kevin is a Truth Teller

Kevin's presentation was very well received. It was the perfect complement to the relaunch of our WATER'S WORTH IT campaign and both were the buzz of the conference. We continue to receive positive feedback. Kevin had just the right mix of emotion and inspiration, and couldn't have been more perfect for our audience. He was also wonderful to work with and was amazingly self-sufficient - showed up when he was needed and required zero hand-holding. He was a breeze to work with.

Kevin was AWESOME! For the next 2 days, everyone was talking about his presentation. He is phenomenal and we're lucky to have had him present to our team. I can't recommend him enough. Exactly what we needed!

To say that Kevin was phenomenal would be an understatement. I have never seen a room captivated the way it was a few weeks ago with Kevin on stage. He commanded the room through his stories, compassion, humor and overall demeanor. He and his story are truly a treasure and we appreciate your team working with us to make it all a reality!

Kevin is not a story teller. Kevin is a truth teller. His truth is an aspiration that we all must have. His inspiration comes from his heart and his soul, and it is extremely obvious. Kevin, you are my HERO. Thanks for making a difference in my life and in the lives of 110 people that you opened up to this week.

Thank you for coming to share your wit and wisdom with our local CPCU chapter. Your presentation on the HERO Effect: Bringing Your Best when it Matters the Most was a perfect send-off for our audience. The images of Aunt Bea and being called Mr. Delicious are embedded in the heads of CPCUs throughout the area. You’ve got quite a talent for painting a word picture in the minds of your audience.

Kevin is one of a kind powerful speaker

Kevin’s program was a great reminder of the importance of customer service and what it means to make an interaction with someone truly exceptional and memorable. We had about 500 employees attend his presentation, including several from our IT area. We laughed, cried and walked away inspired to be everyday heroes. Kevin’s presentation and message were different than our typical guest speakers’ – and it showed. We received rave reviews from employees, and many asked to have more speakers like him in the future.

Kevin Brown was a fantastic speaker and left our group with a wonderful message that held value for work and home. He was extremely engaging and the content was rich with humor. All 500 employees, who attended the banquet, fully enjoyed his talk and I would recommend him for any event. He is also very easy to work with and will help you make your meeting and/or event a huge success.
