Turning Change into Opportunity
Going through change is not a market differentiator. Adapting to change faster and better than your competitors can be. Gary Bradt’s inspiring new keynote, Turning Change into Opportunity, equips audiences with the tools they need to do just that.

Based on his new book, Change: The Tools You Need for The Life You Want at Work and Home, this keynote empowers audiences to:

  • Experience the power of The To Who List, a daily practice supported by an app Bradt developed that helps you build relationships that will sustain you through challenging change and difficult times
  • Learn to let go of old beliefs, feelings or behaviors that are only holding you down or holding you back
  • Experience the moving power of the Two Minute Drill, an exercise that allows you to quickly engage your most deeply held values. Like a compass, these values will point you in the right direction whenever change creates difficult choices
  • Understand the four factors driving change for practically every organization and industry across the globe
  • And more....

    This upbeat and interactive keynote stimulates the mind and stirs the emotions. It inspires audiences to discover strengths they may not have recognized they had. Bradt’s stories and personal anecdotes bring his points home in a way that audiences can not only understand, but relate to.

    Discover what previous clients like IBM, eBay, American Express, Aetna and scores of others have before: That it’s not the change in life, but how you choose to respond, that makes all the difference. Let Gary help your audience find the opportunities that await them.

    “Gary Bradt is an inspiring speaker that keeps you on the on the edge of your seat. Be prepared to laugh, cry, dream and embrace change as Gary shows you its golden opportunity. Gary provides you with practical tools that you continue to use professionally and personally. I never imagined that a 1 hour seminar would change my entire life perspective in such a positive way.”

    "Although we have enjoyed working with some terrific keynote speakers, we had many, many comments from our attendees that you were one of the best Keynotes we have had EVER! I knew it was a real success when there weren’t any books left behind, (never seen that before) and we had to refresh the notepads at break, because at least half the people had taken their entire notepad with them when they left for break. You definitely hit that home run you wanted! I hope we can work together at another event in the future."
    --Resource Management Services, Inc.

    "Thank you for joining our all hands meeting. We heard so many positive comments about your talk and have also heard several references to 'clearing the rubble and finding the ring' as people jumped back into their day to day work. You were very inspirational and definitely provided us all with actions to take back to our jobs and home. Thanks again!"
    --Fidelity Investments

    "The feedback on your presentation was universally positive. The team really appreciated your approach to recognizing the stress that change can bring in both our professional and personal lives. After having some time to reflect on the messages (Ring Tool Kit) you gave us, I wanted to circle back and say thanks again. Your comments hit home in one way or another with almost every member of the team."

    "Gary did an outstanding job. A ten on a scale of ten. He met with the VP of Operations and Human Resources prior to the meeting to understand the issues. He and I exchanged e-mails prior to the conference and then he met with me for breakfast the morning of the meeting to go over last minutes details and to gather additional information about the audience/issues. He was able to engage an audience that was tired from a long evening the night before and had their minds set on going home when he was finished (not an easy task). He was a hit."
    --Guardian Life Insurance Company

    "Thank you for the absolutely fabulous presentation you did last week. It was more than a home run. I guess the bases were loaded and you hit a home run. They just haven't stopped talking about the quality of the presentation and the impact of the presentation. Our goal of arming the organization with some practical doable things at the end of the presentation was clearly, clearly well met."
