Brody was one of the most beloved speakers at our event. He perfectly toed the line between funny, vulnerable, and thought-provoking. The audience was laughing throughout, but also walking away with things to consider. His presence on stage was professional and approachable, and he arrived fully prepared and ready to engage with the group. Thanks Brody!

I believe our self-doubt can lead us to fulfilling lives.

Brody was so engaging and inspiring, and I loved how he injected humor throughout. His keynote made me laugh, was very relatable, and his delivery was on point with our energy.

"We invited Brody to Hollywood to talk about his experience as an outdoor enthusiast with RED cameras and to host the wrap party of our film competition, REDIRECT Explore. His delivery was high-energy and engaging. He kept the attendees on the edge of their seats wanting more. We appreciate the value he brought to the structure of the event."

"...the students are more aware of our changing planet after his incredible presentation. Brody was amazing and I am so glad that he shared his personal expedition with us. His story was amazing and expressed his zest for life. Loved it!"

Do you seriously think I travel the world, climbing and skiing weird mountains, and don't have embarrassing stories? 

In front of audiences large and small, I translate my strange, nearly unrelatable mountain experiences into growth opportunities for students, employees, athletes, and more. My presentations are lighthearted, story-based, visual, interactive, and encourage individuals to step outside of their comfort zones and into discovery of their own potential.

Brody’s dynamic presentation was funny and insightful. I would have enjoyed listening to him for another hour!

Brody’s talk really resonated with me and some of the feelings I have when I’m trying to move forward but feeling like I don’t belong.
— keynote attendee
Wow. This guy seriously hikes the biggest peaks in the world and once he gets to the top he straps on skis and rides down? I’ve told people about Brody all week and now it’s leading me to understand what he is. Brody Leven is a symbol of hope for those who think of humans as mediocre. He is a representation that the land is more than just a playground and by all means needs taken care of and protected. Very inspiring and a wonderful first hand experience.

"Working with Brody was a fantastic opportunity. He was very responsive, accommodating, and professional throughout our correspondence, which made it easy and fun to plan a great event at Lyndon State College. I look forward to working with him again in the future."
