I believe things that are hard for you are frequently good for you.

"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."

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

How about the time I climbed the tallest mountain in North America with two different-sized ski boots?

In front of audiences large and small, I translate my strange, nearly unrelatable mountain experiences into growth opportunities for students, employees, athletes, and the general public.
My presentations are lighthearted, story-based, visual, interactive, custom-made, and frequently discuss Why Things That Are Hard For You Are Good For You as a way to encourage individuals to step outside of their comfort zones and into discovery of their own potential. Moreover, I believe teamwork can empower us to strive to improve ourselves, one another, and our world.
Plus, I stay in cheap hotels. And I bring posters and raffle prizes for attendees.

"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."
