Mr. Steiner is truly inspirational and showed our students that if you work hard and differentiate yourself from others, you will find ways to succeed. It really hit home for me how special he is when the presentation was over and he hung around for an additional hour offering advice to the students who stuck around to talk to him. Other speakers are out the door faster than the students, but Mr. Steiner is truly a man of the people. I would encourage anyone to read his books, listen to his podcasts, or head over to the Steiner warehouse and have a conversation with him. It will be well worth it.

For our annual management meeting this past January, we worked with Brandon Steiner and Steiner Sports to have legendary “The Hit Man” Don Mattingly join us as a guest speaker. We could not have been happier with the experience. Brandon did such an incredible job moderating the discussion and driving the Q&A. But what was most impressive was the way he seamlessly tied Don’s stories and experiences to our own business – taking Don’s wisdom and approach to life and aligning them directly to our company and what we do. Brandon is a natural and made the entire event a memorable one for all who participated.
