Brian has a fun, down-to-earth speaking style. He is extremely knowledgable and conveys the information in an easy-to-remember, fun way without being too serious or pretentious.
I’d highly recommend Brian to anyone looking for great speakers. He’s easy to work with, has a great sense of humor, is very genuine, and is enthusiastic about product.

When Brian speaks, it’s obvious he’s the kind of thought-leader who fully immerses himself in the topic because of his own passion, experience and interest.
He adds wisdom gained through his own experience and injects unique perspectives which gently encourage you to reconsider your own understanding.

Brian made my job as an event organizer very easy! He was responsive, obviously well-prepared, he has an entertaining sense of humor, and his presentation got great reviews from our attendees!
We wouldn’t hesitate for a second to invite him back.

Brian’s presentations are engaging, thought-provoking, delightful and definitely spark audience engagement. He is an excellent communicator who really knows his stuff and can present it in a way that all people can easily understand.
I highly recommend Brian Rhea as a speaker, as an educator, and as a thought-provoker.
