(July 2 – San Diego, CA)
Professional speakers’ top organization inducted Brad Montgomery into their most exclusive group, the CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame. There are only around 130 living members of the Hall Of Fame out of the tens of thousands of professional speakers worldwide.
Brad joins other Hall of Fame inductees including Ken Blanchard CPAE, Norman Vincent Peale CPAE, Earl Nightengale CPAE, Ronald Reagan CPAE, Zig Ziglar CPAE, Art Linkletter CPAE.
“In the world of speakers,” said Montgomery, “This is big. Really big. Like winning a Oscar or the Indianapolis 500, only without the movie stars or the gas fumes.”
“It’s exceptionally cool to be honored by my peers. And was awesome to be honored at the gala in San Diego. But to be honest, one of the coolest things was that my wife, my kids and my family were there to see it happen.” Montgomery joked that because so much of his work is out of town, his family barely knows what he does. “I think up until the ceremony, my dad thought I was a lawyer.”
Montgomery helps organizations improve production, sales, innovation and teamwork to increase their competitive advantage. He presents keynotes (and a host of other services) at meetings and conventions for audiences from several thousand people down to a dozen C-Suite executives.
