Brian Will Entertain, Motivate and Inspire Your Audience

Brian Smith was born in Australia, where he developed his love of surfing. A chartered accountant, he studied at the UCLA Graduate School of Management, and with $500 of start-up money, he founded UGG Imports to bring sheepskin footwear to America. After seventeen years, with sales growth outstripping Brian’s ability to finance production, he sold the business to Deckers Outdoor Corporation. The UGG brand has since exceeded $1 billion of international sales times over.

A passionate innovator and entrepreneur, Brian is one of the most sought after business leaders in the country today. As a media guest and inspiring speaker, he is committed to teaching his breakthrough business strategies to entrepreneurs and translating personal vision and spirituality into company culture.

Brian spends his time with family and friends in Southern California, still surfs, plays golf and attempts to improve the planet everyday.

Dear Brian,

Thank you!… You gave me back my confidence when I was seriously doubting the point in all the efforts I’m putting into my work.

…listening to you today-to hear about your struggles and how you never gave up, how you stayed with it: What an inspiration!

Thank You,

Dear Mr. Smith,

You were beyond fantastic at our conference. In one hour you propelled this group years ahead in our quest to instill the notions that you expound. I think you felt the energy from this group and can see that for many of us grads at Harvard we are built upon your concepts. Many of the students including myself Thank You for sharing your journey as it did inspire me…For you it may have been 1 hour but for us grads they are words of wisdom that will carry well beyond your years.

Dear Mr. Smith,

I’d like you to know how truly fortunate I feel to have had the pleasure of hearing you and speaking to you at the Small Business Summit at CUNY. Your words have brought me reassurance in myself (struggles and all) as well as in the universe that is embracing my efforts with her magical touch. You are a gifted orator, one who humanizes and verbalizes those emotions that we would otherwise not be able to articulate. Plainly, you make us ‘tadpoles with a case of the heebie jeebies’ listen to our goosebumps.

With tremendous gratitude,

Monique M.

Dear Brian,

    Thank you !  Your awesome training for our Juice Plus Distributors absolutely enriched and inspired all of our team members last weekend!  You are such a great story teller!  And the lessons you have learned along your journey were so applicable to our attendees, who are all entrepreneurs with home-based businesses.  You gave us all more hope, more courage, more trust in ourselves to allow each experience to unfold naturally, and you encouraged everyone to notice our inner guidance helping us at every step.  Your time with us was so valuable and so fun!  With great appreciation and gratitude! 

Bless your heart and soul,
Paulette S.
