Did you know studies have shown that our success in life and at work can be influenced far more by our social and emotional intelligence (SEQ) than by our cognitive intelligence (IQ)?
Brian is a charismatic speaker who helps audiences see the tremendous difference-making power of good soft skills and emotional intelligence in business and life. Besides being a fantastic speaker, he is a certified social and emotional intelligence coach whose talks emphasize the importance of self-awareness, self-management, other-awareness and relationship management.
Need a speaker who can bring a message of positivity, encouragement, and life's purpose and tie it into the workplace? You've found him.
Mr. Baker was a pleasure to have at our school community event that included families and teachers. He tailored his talk so perfectly to our group and left everyone feeling inspired, motivated and provided us with attainable communication techniques that I know I started using right away. He was very accommodating and took time to get to know us. I look forward to working with him again.
