[JAN 2015] Working with Brian was great! Our student staff loved him, and his presentation was right on target for what we were looking for. He was also very easy to work with, and was able to go with the flow and adapt when we had some technical difficulties. Thanks again for working with us!! Johnathan Ferraro, University of Indianapolis

Brian did a wonderful job connecting with the students. His program really gave each and every one of the students a chance to engage in the presentation! The "Reel Diversity" presentation really made a positive impact on how we wish students to engage and view diversity on campus. I think the most effective was the fact that for students who identify as white...this may have been the first time they were encouraged/included in an explicit way into diversity conversations. (Dickinson College)

Brian's use of humor and analogies engages the students before he even starts the "meat" of his presentation. Brian was extremely easy to work with. His sense of humor is an effective way to reach the students. Even when talking about serious issues, Brian had a nice balance between humor and communicating life lessons. (Whittier College)

Current, hip, engaging, funny! (Whitworth University)

I think Brian made a lasting impression (regarding diversity) with
some of the students in attendance. Most effective was his energy, humor, and engaging style. (Penn State Erie)

Brian's personality and style connected very well with our audience. It was a group of varying levels of comfort and knowledge on the topic (Diversity/Social Justice) and Brian put the staff, at all levels, at ease. Brian helped us create a foundation of understanding around the topics of diversity and social justice. The most effective aspect of his work was the name tag exercise, the least effective was having him leave. (Penn College of Technology)

He engaged them immediately, and they loved him. This is the first outside speaker we've really brought into campus, and we're already thinking of ways we can bring him back. He was down to earth, very informed on his topic, and reached the students. (Harrisburg Area Community College, York Campus)

The speaker was very effective because he used relatable material and was very enthused. The lasting impact will be hopefully a continuous use of his lecture through freshman orientation.(Randolph College)

Brian did an excellent job connecting with the audience. He was friendly, engaging, and in total control of the performance. The audience response was very positive--great post performance comments demonstrate that. (Penn State)
