What clients are saying about Brooks' Keynote Presentations:

"Brooks Harper energized the crowd at the 2013 South Carolina Education and Business Summit with his message of Why Should We Hire Your Students? Brooks kept approximately 1400 conference participants on the edge of their seats during his entire presentation. His humor along with his straight-forward and common sense approach was exactly what we as educators in SC needed. We can now take his message back to our workplace and help students gain the skills sets they need to be globally competitive. Brooks is a big-time up and comer with a powerful message and he will accurately and precisely deliver in a great way to whatever audience he is asked to speak to!"
