The World Needs Your Hero…

The world needs people who lead, love, and serve at a higher level. People who help us dream big dreams, achieve great things, and leave us better than they found us. People who exceed expectations and defy comparison. Those who make even the harshest critics stop in their tracks and admire the work.

Every once in a while you come across a book that you connect with on such a profound level that you find yourself getting anxious as you draw to the final pages as you don’t want it to end.  A book, that after having read it, you know that there is a little piece of you that will see life through a slightly different lens than before.  Even after having heard your message prior to Saturday night, I found myself not wanting it to end.  I found myself hoping that I can hang on to viewing life through the lens that you pointed out that I have always had, but not always chose to see through. You have been given a great gift in your profound ability to share your message and move people to reflect upon their own lives.

Kevin Brown was a fantastic speaker and left our group with a wonderful message that held value for work and home. He was extremely engaging and the content was rich with humor. All 500 employees, who attended the banquet, fully enjoyed his talk and I would recommend him for any event. He is also very easy to work with and will help you make your meeting and/or event a huge success.

Kevin’s talk about The HERO Effect struck a chord with our agency force, home office staff, and spouses at our annual Sales Conference. His message was right on point with what we’re trying to do in our organization and our goal to become the Number 1 Insurance Company in the state of Missouri. Not often do agents seek me out after a keynote address to comment on the speaker – but a number of agents made it a point to tell me how much they took from Kevin’s remarks and that they thought he was one of the best conference speakers we’ve ever had. I’d highly recommend Kevin Brown to any organization looking to hear a powerful message.

As a highly sought-after keynote speaker, Kevin has had the privilege of speaking to a wide variety of organizations including American Express, Delta Airlines, Nationwide, H&R Block, PayPal, New York Life, Million Dollar Round Table, Southwest Airlines, Merck, Atrium Health, and many more.

Kevin has received numerous honors, including being named one of the ‘Best Keynote Speakers of 2019’ by NorthStar Meetings Group; one of the ‘Top 41 Motivational Speakers Who Can Energize Any Sales Team’ by ResourcefulSelling; among the ‘Top Customer Service Speakers’ by Eagles Talent Speakers Bureau; and an elite and in-demand ‘Gold Star Speaker’ by GDA Speakers.

  • Achieve greater results by eliminating “ordinary” thinking and mastering the habit of excellence.

  • Own the moments that matter (and they all matter) by taking responsibility for their attitude, their actions and their results.

  • Create meaningful relationships and deliver an extraordinary experience for every “customer” at work and at home.


Heroes Help People…with NO STRINGS ATTACHED! They go “all in” every time they take the field. They understand that in business and in life it’s always personal and never perfect. Heroes create strong connections and reach beyond the borders of transactional thinking to create transformational moments!

Heroes Create an Exceptional Experience: The HERO’s calling card is pure excellence. It’s about using our talents, gifts and abilities to their fullest potential and highest purpose. The HERO uses the best of who they are to serve more people, more often, in bigger and better ways.

Heroes Take Responsibility: HEROES own the moments that matter! They live by a simple code: “bring your best stuff to the present moment and pour it into the lives of others.” They understand that before you can lead anyone else, you must first be able to lead yourself. The HERO owns their attitude, their actions and their results. They are committed to the best possible outcome in every situation regardless of circumstances or events beyond their control.

Heroes Live and Work with Optimism: HEROES see the world differently. For them, it’s not about positive thinking, it’s about perspective. Looking through the lens of optimism gives the HERO supernatural vision. They see what others cannot. They see opportunities instead of obstacles – possibilities instead of problems. When things go wrong…and they will…optimism is what helps the HERO turn life’s messes into a masterpiece.
