Just because you’ve got wisdom doesn’t make you old! – Brad Montgomery
40 Plus: Gay Men. Gay Talk.
“I look up to you because you are older and wiser! You have so much wisdom.” Ok! God, I feel old now. Or you could say, “Wow what a compliment!” Depending on perspective, some of us guys take that as a kick in the gut, and others of us take it as a badge of honor and respect.My buddy and fellow professional speaker, Brad Montgomery, throw down about the battle of aging and being seen as older wiser, and even not having all the answers!About BradLike you, happiness expert, speaker and author Brad Montgomery believes:• Happiness Pays.• It makes business-sense to invest in the “people-side” of business.• Speakers should be engaging AND have a useful message.Brad combines all of these ideas — and a ton more — into everything he does on stage. He’s a very funny guy with some very relevant ideas about how to improve ourselves and those people around us. And…he’s funny. (Yeah, we said this twice.)He’s a …• Business Owner• Author• Blogger• Idea guyBut he’s also one of the funniest business speakers out there. His keynotes and “Expanded Keynotes” (which is a fancy way to say “Longer keynotes that include some experiential, hands-on learning experiences” … which is a fancy way to say “Audience Participation On Steroids That Helps People Remember and Learn”) use an out-of-the-box blend of humor, wisdom, audience participation, music, and even confetti in order to keep the learning on high.He believes:• Motivational speakers should deliver tactics we remember and implement.• The era of “canned” speakers is over.• Your organization craves a speaker who can connect, who can have a conversation, and who can be relevant. They crave somebody who is authentic. Somebody who is funny.WebsiteHey Guys, Check This Out!Are you a guy who keeps struggling to do that thing?

252: Brad Montgomery: A Man Who Swings Everyday In The Search Of The Sweetspot
Business Coaching with Join Up Dots
Todays guest is a man who likes nothing more than having a laugh in both his personal and business life.Throw into the mix his love of inspiring people, communicating at a high level, and leaving a lasting impression on everyone that he meets and you get the flavour of what he is all about.Starting his career in the form of corporate entertainment, he would wow the crowds across America and on the huge cruise ships, with humorous commentary and magic tricks.He knew that he could be funny and entertain, but could he combine the fun with the message?Could he strengthen his proposition by tackling the issues that business struggle with, all the time still keeping to his authentic self.Well he has done just that by starting "Laugh-O-Nomics"....yep that's a proper word, and now speaks on a range of subjects, but loves nothing more to discuss happiness at work.As he says "Happy people have, on average, 31% higher productivity; their sales are 37% higher; their creativity is three times higher.” and companies are missing a trick.They haven't quite grasped the fact that people having a good time, keeping moral at a high level, and working hard is the best thing that every company can have on their premises.The days of setting huge targets and cracking the whip to ensure that it all gets done should hopefully now be a thing of the past?So does he find that the hardest people to bring round to his hugely valuable message are the middle managers of the world?And when did he realise that all his talents had come together to take him into the motivational speaking world and flourish whilst he is there?Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Brad Montgomery.
