A dynamic speaker, Kent inspires and empowers audiences of all ages. He has quickly become recognized as an authority on personal development and has enjoyed speaking at numerous businesses, universities, and organizations who invited him to speak about practical, and often unconventional, strategies for success in this erratic global environment we are seeing take shape.
In the world of speaking, the best praise is a return invitation. And Kent has an impressive record for repeat invitations to be the keynote speaker. An impressive eighty percent of Kent’s bookings are a result of word of mouth and personal recommendations — a testament to his effectiveness.

Understanding the power of visuals, Kent grew frustrated with the lack impactful imagery available to effectively communicate his core concepts. His frustration led him to tap into his own artistic talents. The result was the founding of Maxims4Mavaericks. In a style uniquely his own, Kent often uses this “paradigm-bending pop art” during his speeches for a very compelling and memorable presentation.
Book a speech with Kent and receive 50% off a custom, commissioned piece of artwork designed by Kent for your business, organization, or school. The purpose of the work serves as “wall compass” — a though-provoking and inspirational totem that serves as daily guidepost, reminding everyone who looks at them what the grand objectives are and the best path to get there.
In the process of creating this artwork and the personal interviews and organizational research required, Kent develops an intimate understanding of your organization which results in a more informative and relative presentation. If there is enough lead time, Kent will also incorporate the commissioned artwork into his speech establishing a more creative personal bond to the art and the overall company objectives that it embodies.
It is rare to find an exceptional young man whose career aspirations so closely match the journey my own career has taken as an author, entrepreneur, transformational trainer, professional speaker and success coach. As a result of Kent’s deep understanding of the principles of success, along with his work ethic and marketing savvy, I asked Kent to co-author a book with me—The Success Principles for Teens which is based on my current best-selling book, The Success Principles. As I expected, Kent proved to be a diligent co-author.
Kent’s communication skills are superb. His ability to assimilate and integrate massive amounts of information and then craft it into a compelling presentation is phenomenal. I know that Kent will be a valuable leader and asset to any business or institution he works with. The content of The Success Principles program and the other numerous books he has written combined with his extensive experience in working with others make him an outstanding resource for any youth event, business or organization to take advantage of.
Kent has pursued his interest in the psychology of success with a fervor and determination I rarely encounter. His passion to help others and make a difference has been demonstrated over and over by his constant speaking to and leading workshops for non-profit organizations, youth groups and schools. I am totally confident in recommending Kent as a speaker or trainer for your organization.

Kent is a dynamo! He fills a room with energy and through his own enthusiasm draws out the best in others. He’s focused, clear, motivated, and darn amazing. I think there’s a wise old person hidden in the pleasing disguise of this handsome young man. A great role model and mentor to everyone, young and old. He inspires me constantly!

Thank you for your participation in our event. It was obvious that you were a big hit. I was blown away by the fact that you were able to get a standing ovation at 3:00 in the afternoon! You really made a connection with the kids. I hope you will continue to be part of our programming and look forward to seeing more of your work.

Kent was the keynote speaker for Entrepalooza 2012 – a week of activities designed to encourage entrepreneurship in Siouxland. He did a fantastic job – made great points, had a great sense of humor, and connected with the audience. He is truly an entrepreneur as he came up with a new business while preparing for his presentation. Kent was also a delight to work with. He made arrangements easy, was personable, and on-time. We will have him back.
