I invited Brian Cuban to talk speak at the Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association annual “Donald Davis Seminar”. I was wary at first, because his topic—addiction and eating disorders—is so far afield from the usual continuing-legal-education fodder. I shouldn’t have been wary: Brian is an outstanding story teller who entertains as much as he educates. His stories had the crowd of grizzled lawyers laughing and applauding. Afterward, he got great reviews from the attendees, and several lawyers went out of their way to thank me privately. My organization invited him back again this year. Your group—whatever the group—has someone who needs to hear what Brian
has to say.
On behalf of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association I want to express our sincere gratitude for your keynote address delivered at our 29th Annual Conference. Our attendees were profoundly moved by your personal story of fighting addiction and body dysmorphic disorder. While most speakers leave at the conclusion of their presentation, we were very impressed that you remained, making yourself available to converse with our attendees and provide insight into your experiences. You shared your story of recovery with an energy and eloquence that left our attendees feeling validated for their contributions in the treatment of mental illness and substance use disorders. You are an inspirational speaker and your presentation provided motivation for all of us. I have heard only positive responses from our more than 1800 attendees! You really came through and delivered for us!
Mr. Cuban was the keynote speaker for The Council on Alcohol & Drug Abuse’s annual Power of Prevention Luncheon.
To say Mr. Cuban’s message was well-received would be an understatement. Feedback about our event in general was positive beyond our greatest expectations, and comments about Mr. Cuban’s presentation in particular have been outstanding. He wove together the history of his struggles with a message of hope; not just “what happened,” but also how he escaped the grips of a mental health crisis and embraced recovery. Mr. Cuban is a skilled speaker. He is so able to talk from his heart that he doesn’t need notes.
I recommend Brian Cuban wholeheartedly as a speaker
The Oklahoma Eating Disorders Association was thrilled to have Brian Cuban as our keynote speaker for our annual community outreach event, Conversations of Hope. His authentic and powerful story of recovery offered insight and hope to a diverse audience. Mr. Cuban beautifully integrated humor into a serious topic which kept the audience engaged and made for a wonderful evening. We highly recommend him as a professional speaker and consider it a privilege to have heard his story.
Your talk was so captivating, honest and inspiring. Everyone loved it! Thank you for doing what you do. You change lives every day by sharing your story and by letting your voice be heard. You are welcome back here anytime. We are your biggest fans!
Brian delivers his message to attorney groups in a way we can understand the process by which our clients and their children may have become addicted. Because he has been through years of bullying and addiction, he helps attorneys understand the methods by which they can help their clients and their children. He delivers the message of hope and forgiveness. He encourages attorneys to stop being judgmental and start being part of the solution. I am grateful that Brian has been willing to work with me to get his message to family law attorneys. Brian is our clients and their children, from the bullied to the addicted.
When Something For Kelly was hosting its inaugural gala last year, we were introduced to Brian Cuban as a potential speaker. On the initial contact he was gracious and most receptive to our request. He met with me on little notice to share coffee and his autobiography Shattered Image. He also posted on his Facebook page the date and information surrounding our evening with invitations to his followers to join us. The evening of our gala he arrived early and was available to meet our guests. His presentation was very powerful and he kept the attention of everyone in the room. After the event he remained to answer questions from the audience and was a joy to work with. We recently invited him to join us at another event and once again the audience was spellbound. I can highly recommend Brian as a featured speaker on the subject of disordered eating. We are happy to call him a friend of our organization.
You have a gift for telling your story in a way that resonates with people of all ages and life experiences and you made what is typically an unapproachable topic accessible and enlightening. In addition to being a fantastic motivational speaker with a great sense of humor, you generously shared your time and wisdom with the students before and after the event.
Your keynote at the Southwestern Pennsylvania 3rd Annual Media and Mental Health Awards was insightful and captivating as you touched the audience with your candor about bullying, eating disorder, gender distinction, and mental wellness.
Post your presentations, I was contacted by multiple individuals stating they were ready to start a recovery journey! THANK YOU!
Mr. Brian Cuban is an inspirational speaker. His forthright delivery speaks to audiences of all ages and both genders. He has broken down barriers for men to speak frankly about their struggles with eating disorders, body dysmorphic disorder, and addictions. Both those who have been bullied, and those who have bullied others can profit from the stories of his childhood and how bullying contributed to his later struggles. He answers questions openly and honestly and is genuine in the telling of his story and his recovery journey.
We would definitely recommend Brian as a top-ranked speaker!
While he spoke at the event, I looked out to the crowd of 450 guests and saw men, women, teens and youth completely captivated by his story and his willingness to share his difficult life story. Several guests pulled me aside after and told me that it was one of the most inspiring afternoons they had ever participated in, and I attribute this to Brian and his powerful words.
Brian Cuban spoke to nearly 2,000 at risk students at Speak to Me, Inc.’s Steps Against Bullying™ Interactive Health and Anti-Bullying Campaign Rally and his talk was so inspiring to both the children and adults alike! Brian was able to channel the essence of a child’s mind and provide the advice of a responsible adult. The message that “it’s okay to love who you are”…was the greatest take away and those 2,000 students, youth and adults will never forget it! We would love to have Mr. Cuban back again for this event and many other events to come. He is truly an inspiration and his story has so much to offer to nearly any audience.
Brian is a passionate speaker with the ability to engage, entertain and educate the audience. I would highly recommend Brian as an inspiring speaker for the topic of mental health awareness.
Brian is a powerful speaker that engages with professionals, students, peers, and families unlike anyone I have had the pleasure of working with. Brian brings a passion for recovery, on multiple fronts that is unbridled in the modern recovery movement. He is a pleasure to work with professionally, and will impact your audience more than you ever hoped for. I would highly recommend Brian to speak in a variety of settings, and will gladly contract him again to speak at the University.
As the Keynote Speaker for the 2013 SWPA Media and Mental Health Awards, Brian Cuban was simply outstanding. From our very first contact straight through the planning stage, the pre-event media interviews, and the event itself, Brian was a consummate professional to work with who delivered a compelling and thought-provoking look at Body Dysmorphic Disorder from a deeply personal perspective. Brian’s style and straightforward delivery is refreshing; all his life’s experiences come together to shed light on a disorder in a way that leaves his audiences thinking and talking, long after he’s gone.
I have been a co-presenter with Brian on three occasions. He is an informative, engaging and entertaining speaker. Highly recommended!
His message captivated the audience. It’s been a few months since the Gala, and we are still receiving tremendous feedback about Brian’s speech.
Brian understands his unique position as a male within the eating disorders community. He is open about his journey with body image issues, eating disorders, and other co-occurring conditions, and he is tireless in his efforts to engage other men in a deeper understanding about the symptoms and treatment available. BEDA is always proud to work with Brian and, personally, I can recommend him without hesitation. I look forward to working with Brian again soon.
