Special Guest Speaker: James Brown, Jr with the Xchange Zone - Running Towards Relationships

Relationships are the essence of the human existence – the business world, home, and school. Understanding that every relationship matters, has a unique cadence, and learning how to identify and move within it, can drastically improve your personal brand, organizational effectiveness, and better position you to reach your individual and team goals. In this presentation, you will learn the rhythm (cadence) and rhyme (communication) for building rewarding (win) relationships AND how to apply these skills personally, within your team and with your customers.

About the Speaker: James loves engaging with people and leading others to success, drawing on his championship experiences in both athletics and corporate America. Whether crossing the finish line to earn a world-class status as a sprinter or spending 30-plus years working with national, sports and corporate clients, James has learned quite a bit about preparing, competing, succeeding at a high level, and the importance of "THE EXCHANGE ZONE!"

As a former sales executive, James has closed deals and managed clients for high-profile sporting events and major corporations. He was named National Account Executive of the Year during his tenure as a sales director for Visit Houston and was named Supplier of the Year by Meeting Professionals International (MPI). James now serves on the board of MPI-HAC as Vice President of Leadership Development.

As a speaker, James has merged his unique expertise as a lifelong leader and teammate to offer engaging keynote and breakout sessions that inspire while providing practical solutions for sales success by developing customer-centric services and rewarding (revenue) relationships. James challenges organizations to adopt a “champion mindset,” motivating people to see everyone they meet as a customer!

Away from the stage and mic, James is a husband, father of two, cook, and golfer who’s known to wear cowboy boots.
