Brent Gleeson Speaker Biography


Brent Gleeson, a Navy SEAL combat veteran and serial entrepreneur, has leveraged the principles of leadership, discipline, accountability and resiliency learned in training and applied down range for building high-performance teams in the business world. He has raised millions of dollars for his organizations, built winning teams, made costly mistakes, dealt with the inevitable obstacles and sold companies for significant returns.

He is an acclaimed speaker on topics ranging from leadership and culture to change management and building high-performance teams. Companies of all sizes from across the globe hire him for speaking and consulting with a desire to leverage his expertise in building teams that evangelize change and achieve winning results. He is the bestselling author of TakingPoint: A Navy SEAL's 10 Fail-safe Principles for Leading Through Change, a highly acclaimed book that was a #1 new release in the categories of Organizational Change and Business Structural Adjustment.

After tours in Iraq, Africa and other theaters of war Gleeson transitioned to the world of entrepreneurship applying battle-tested leadership principles to building teams designed to overcome the odds and achieve results. Using the guiding principles he learned in the SEAL Teams, Brent Gleeson has built award-winning multi-million dollar organizations that have earned the prestige of being repeatedly named in the Inc. 500|5000 list of fastest-growing private companies.

He has spoken to thousands of business leaders, professional athletes and first responders all over the world and consulted with hundreds of organizations large and small seeking new ways to develop their leaders, improve the culture and get better results. He has inspired thousands to push themselves beyond their comfort zone and achieve seemingly impossible goals.

With degrees in finance and economics from Southern Methodist University, English and History from Oxford University in England and an MBA from University of San Diego, Gleeson’s extensive experience is both academic and real-world in nature. Gleeson has won awards for business leadership and was named one of the “Top 10 CEOs” in Entrepreneur Magazine’s October 2013 issue for his exemplary approach to building high-performance teams in business.

His clients include reputable brands such as Bank of America Merrill Lynch, PayPal, Nestle, Toronto Raptors, Morgan Stanley, Raytheon, Boeing, A&E Networks, Teva Pharmaceuticals, Care Fusion, The North Face, Lilly, Blue Cross Blue Shield, UBS and the U.S. Navy.

For the last four years, Gleeson has had weekly columns on both Forbes.com and Inc.com, two of the most highly trafficked business content sites in the world. His columns – that garner thousands of views and social shares each week – focus on the topics of business leadership, culture, change management and building teams that achieve great results.

Since his inception as an entrepreneur, Gleeson has been featured on many business podcasts and local and national news and TV channels such as CNBC, Fox, CBS, NBC, ABC, TMZ and the Discovery Channel. He has also starred in several reality shows such as Discovery Channel’s ‘One Man Army’ and Mark Burnett’s NBC primetime hit ‘Stars Earn Stripes.’ For ‘Stars Earn Stripes’ Gleeson and several other special operations professionals – including the late Chris Kyle (former teammate and “American Sniper”) – were selected out of two thousand candidates to be paired with celebrities to compete and raise money for charities like Wounded Warrior Project and Hire Our Heroes. Gleeson currently has two TV shows in the works with Mark Owen (former teammate, SEAL Team 6 member, and author of the best-seller ‘No Easy Day’) and CAA, where the focus will be a special operations approach to improving businesses.

Gleeson is on the Executive Board of the Navy SEAL Family Foundation and his family is an ambassador family for March of Dimes. He is married with three wonderful children.

MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE THROUGH TRUST, TEAMWORK & ACCOUNTABILITY
In this presentation, Brent draws connections between how high-performance teams in any environment can leverage trust, teamwork, and accountability to achieve their goals. He provides tools for improving trust that have a measurable economic impact on any organization. He also dives into how building a culture of accountability can have game-changing effects and drive a team to achieve more than they ever expected to.

LEADERSHIP LESSONS FOR ELITE TEAMS
This presentation is specific to leadership at all levels. Brent compares stories from the battlefield, the lessons learned, and how those lessons apply to leadership at any level across any type of organization or team. Brent talks about how to build a culture of leadership, servant leadership, adaptive change management, and much more. The audience will leave with at least three key takeaways that they can start applying to their personal and professional lives immediately.

CRUSHING YOUR GOALS & ACHIEVING THE IMPOSSIBLE
This presentation is designed to motivate teams at all levels and across any type of organization. Brent shares stories from combat and talks about teamwork, persistence, adaptation, sacrifice, and how elite teams really achieve success and win. The audience will be able to apply lessons learned to their personal and professional lives immediately.

A NAVY SEAL’S PRINCIPLES FOR NAVIGATING ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE
In today’s more volatile, unpredictable and complex business environments businesses can find themselves in almost constant states of change. But more change initiatives fall short or fail due to a lack of leadership alignment, the proper culture founded on accountability and trust and poor discipline. In this presentation, Gleeson provides actionable principles for managers to use in leading an organization through change.

PRIORITIZING PEOPLE CULTURE & VALUES TO ACHIEVE RESULTS
People, culture, and values often have a reputation for being a “soft” element of management’s priorities and not directly tied to improving profitability. Yet, many studies show that leading with culture makes an organization stronger, more resilient and much more profitable. Gleeson shares correlations between SEAL culture and high-performance teams in business and how prioritizing people, culture and values drive a company to achieve better results.

BUILDING HIGH-TRUST ORGANIZATIONS THAT ACHIEVE WINNING RESULTS
Productivity, income, and profits of any organization can be directly negatively or positively impacted depending on the levels of trust within the team. Trust is one of the most critical elements of a strong team culture that gets results and successfully navigates change. In this presentation, Gleeson shares the seven principles for building high-trust organizations: Integrity of Leadership, Investing in Respect, Empowering Everyone, Accountability for All, Creating a Winning Vision, Keeping the Team Informed, and Embracing Sacrifice.

More Programs and Service Offerings:
Gleeson and his company also offer highly engaging workshops and ongoing consulting services that focus on organizational design and development, culture transformation, employee engagement, and leadership/management development.
