I have long argued that kids today learn differently. Brian’s presentation made that very clear, and also helped underline the folly of expecting people of different generations to absorb information via the same means. His presentation was clear, informative and led us on a well-directed path.
Brian is a dynamic speaker and a funny, funny fellow. His presentation is easy to follow, nicely interactive, and he patiently answered questions from the audience throughout the day. He illustrated the benefits of keeping up with technological advances without overwhelming the fearful with techno-speak. They may still be intimidated or scared witless, but now they understand why.
Thank you for being so open in sharing your faith with us.

Brian addressed our high school teens (Exit 31 youth ministry at BranchCreek Community Church), encouraging them to see that they are old enough to have an impact on the world. He was thoroughly entertaining and thought-provoking at the same time. The teens responded well to him – holding their attention and getting them involved in his presentation. We all would love to hear him speak again!

Thank you very much for your time as speaker at the United Bible Societies – Americas General Secretaries meeting in Montevideo, Uruguay. Your challenge to move from the printing world to digital work will have a considerable impact on the ministry of these 28 countries represented. Thank you very much for the useful content of your training, which will help our organization reach a new generation that communicates in a different way.

Brian Atkinson is a favorite speaker at our adoptive parent education sessions. He presents his very real adoption experience with heart, candor and humor. My clients have always appreciated his story and as a result of hearing it they have learned to look at adoption from various very important angles. Brian’s insights on adoption, life, love and Jesus have touched us all in an enlightening and positive way. He will be invited back year after year to share his story and hope with us!

Brian did a GREAT job of keeping the group engaged in what he was talking about. He welcomed input from the audience and would adjust the conversation as needed. The variety of techniques he used was a GREAT demonstration of what he was teaching.

When I was told a consultant would be coming to our event to evaluate us I was a little nervous. My first meeting with Brian Atkinson put me completely at ease. He was upbeat, professional and encouraging. Having him at our event was a great way to get honest feedback in a constructive manner. He is personable and strategic. Brian gave us a detailed report at the end of our event that was intuitive and insightful. I would love to work with Brian again and consider him not only a great consultant, but passionate about helping others grow.

Mr. Atkinson coached our team to success! Our organization’s unique culture made it challenging for our department to establish a direction and determine priorities. With Brian’s help we’ve been able to find traction and gain momentum that has moved us forward in significant ways. We’ll continue to access his expertise when we stall or have questions about a new venture. And he didn’t just coach us from the sidelines – he got into the game with us, encouraging and correcting our strategies. He strengthened our game and we’re stronger for it!

Brian has been a welcomed relief from the chaos of organizing and promoting an event. Everybody on our vendor team really needed to step up and take responsibility for doing their part to create and promote this annual race – and Brian did just that, and so naturally. I was able to simply hand over the graphic design work already established through our printed and promotional materials, and Brian “magically” translated the look and feel and content to the website. I have so appreciated his willing spirit and dedication to getting work done in the most efficient way possible.
