Brian Brandt tells stories that engage the audience, connect them with lifetime applications for years to come, and make a positive impact. These stories arose out of years of leadership experience as an accomplished college tennis coach, CEO of one of the nation’s largest camp and conference centers, national sales director, executive pastor, and now CEO of Core Insights. Leading one of the country’s foremost training and strategic planning companies, he helps shape some of the largest and fastest growing companies in the world, as well as non-profits that are producing profound outcomes.
Professional Career and Education
Brian’s entrepreneurial drive was evident at an early age as he sold peanuts, started a recycling enterprise, held a consistent job sweeping floors and taught tennis to adults and children…all before the age of 16. He went on to receive a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a master’s degree in global leadership.
Brian is the CEO of Core Insights, a company that influences individuals and organizations through training, strategic planning, coaching, keynotes, and leased employees. When not speaking to groups, he’s regularly interviewed by various media outlets on a wide variety of business topics.
Brian has been married for over 20 years and has three children. His passion for developing stronger leaders and organizations shines through in every aspect of his life. When not engaging in leadership development, he enjoys one-on-one time with his wife and kids, traveling, beach trips with his family, a challenging workout schedule, and reading a good thriller.
Brian has spoken to many groups throughout the world. Entrepreneurs in India, a group of 7-year olds in Georgia, non-profit marketing experts in Chicago, hospital administrators in Iowa, oil executives in Oklahoma, and Texas civic leaders are just a few of the audiences he’s connected with. With energy and excitement, he connects to audiences through solid material and electrifying stories.
Participants will receive actionable information that they can put to work immediately in both their professional and personal life. Program length may range from a keynote to a multi-day training program.
