What Kevin Brown's clients say
"I wanted to thank you for such an amazing keynote address for our Virtual event. Everything about the process of working with you was wonderful. Your pre-meeting got us very excited for your message, which you customized just enough for our group. Your studio and sound were great. Your message brought hope and inspiration to so many of our attendees. There were definitely tears shed during your wonderful storytelling."
"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."
"Kevin's keynote was an absolute home run! Everything I hoped it would be when I heard him at a Great West event in March of 2018, and more! He gave me the idea for our convention theme; the Highway is for Hero’s! He was sensational and I know from the subtle differences in his presentation that he works very hard at keeping it up to date! I hope to see him again someday to hear more about how their son is doing at Disney!"
"Kevin was absolutely outstanding and his message was exactly what the doctor ordered for our leaders. Several of the leaders said that they didn't know how much they needed to hear his message until they heard it. The words uplifted them and gave them the opportunity to refresh and revisit their why and just cause. Kevin is truly one of the best speakers I have ever had the opportunity to hear."
"Thank you so much, Kevin! You knocked it out of the park. We were blown away by how you customized it to our group and made it personal for them. I know it must be so hard for you to not have the feedback of a live audience, but rest assured there was a well-deserved standing ovation!"
"I thought you might enjoy hearing what attendees thought of your presentation at the CalTravel Summit. In short, they loved it! That is the highest rating we have ever gotten for a speaker. Congratulations, and thank you for bringing so much passion, heart and inspiration to our event."
"Thank you so very much for sharing your story at our Kick Off meeting today. You did an amazing job and certainly helped put all of our employees in the right frame of mind. I am looking forward to being part of HERO community."
"Oh my goodness, it couldn't have gone better!! Kevin was the perfect choice for this audience!! The fact that he stayed to sign books afterwards was so impactful. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive. Kevin was professional, really affected the audience, and had their attention the entire time!! We may ask him to come back next year. I don't have enough positive things to say!"
"Kevin’s message truly resonated and I can say with certainty there have been few speakers who moved our audience as much as he did. We have been tracking speaker scores since 2011 - Kevin is now the No. 1 rated speaker out of nearly 500 speakers our attendees have evaluated at XChange events over the years. Truly an amazing accomplishment."
"Amazing performance!!! I’ve never seen people standing and applauding eagerly at the end of a keynote performance; Kevin made the closing of our event successful. Kevin’s passion and gift of speech makes his “Hero Effect” keynote a one of a kind: Entertaining, energizing and powerful message."
"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 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 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."
"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!"
