Brett Hagler Speaker Biography

Brett Hagler is the CEO and Co-Founder of New Story, Y Combinator graduate, and cancer survivor. Brett’s been recognized on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list, named one of the Top 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs by Goldman Sachs, and his company was named among Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Companies in the World’’ four different times. Brett and his team are working to pioneer solutions to end global homelessness. Notably, they built the world’s first 3D-printed community. Brett pioneered his own purpose, overcame limiting beliefs, and challenged what was possible for his life. Brett is pairing innovation traditionally reserved exclusively for Silicon Valley with an altruistic mission. By continuing to challenge what’s possible, Brett helps others unlock the ability to pioneer purpose at work and in life.

Brett aims to equip and inspire individuals to challenge what’s possible and provide the tools they need to pioneer their own purpose and the purpose of their organization.

“Think outside the box,” “do it scared,” and “innovation is key” have become mantras that fall flat. In a noisy world, even well-intentioned messages can become buzzwords without practical tools to bring them to life. That’s where Brett comes in. Brett wakes up each day focused on challenging what is possible. If you’re ready to empower your audience to challenge what is possible for their companies, their careers, and their lives, Brett can help.

Challenge Possible
At the age of 25 and equipped with a bachelor’s degree and limited funding, Brett Hagler co-founded New Story, an organization that would go on to build over 3,000 homes for families in need, and land at the top of Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Companies in the World” list. To this day, Brett would say that he’s unqualified — but tha t didn’t stop him from taking action.

When people feel unqualified, 99% respond by letting it govern their actions. The unique 1% recognize that they’re unqualified but understand that doesn’t have to mean they’re unprepared — and they do ‘it’ anyways. In this keynote, Brett will challenge what you think is possible and empower your audience to break from limiting beliefs and pioneer a new path.

Demystify Innovation
Innovation isn’t simply a talent you are born with (or not) — it’s a skill you can develop. It’s from that perspective that New Story Co-Founder and CEO, Brett Hagler, dispels the top myths surrounding the concept of innovation. Exploring themes such as viewing innovation as a byproduct rather than the goal, identifying the problem behind the problem, building systems of innovation, and responding to interruption, Brett equips his audience to develop the skill of innovation and instill it in their teams and organizations.

Build Bold
New Story is known not just for its innovative approach to 3D printing homes for those that need them most, but for its dynamic young team under the leadership of co-founder and CEO, Brett Hagler. Building bold starts with attracting bold people followed by creating a space where people can stretch past their perceived limitations. In this keynote, Brett shares lessons learned from building his revolutionary team and bold culture and helps audience members apply those lessons to their own organizations.
