TESTIMONIALS

“Brian Cuban spoke to nearly 2,000 at risk students at Speak to Me, Incʼs 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, “itʼs okay to love who you are”…was the greatest take away and those 2,000 students, youth and adults will never forget it! The adults listening were reminded and able to realize that the possibilities and choices our children are facing are real. Quoting an 8 year old spectator, “I really liked that Cuban guy, he was really brave to say he was a bully…I am really proud of him!” 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.”

“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.”

“The thing that sets Brian apart from so many other keynote speakers is his passion for this cause. He wants every opportunity to educate the community and show people that it’s okay to seek help. His story is raw, uncut, real, and relatable, for anyone who has ever gone through something that is difficult to speak about. He is passionate, articulate, motivational and inspiring.”

“I first met Brian in Austin in 2012 at the Austin NEDA walk… where he shared his story. Immediately, I saw that Brian is one passionate guy that is on fire to tell those struggling… that there is hope… and to make speakable many of the things he thought he never could. His recently released book “Shattered Image” takes you on a journey of his… highs… his lows… his shame… his hope… his recognition that he is worth it… and his real and honest recovery from Body Dysmorphic Disorder… an eating disorder… and an addiction. Brian spoke in 2012 at the DFW iaedp Chapter Gala and jumps at many other opportunities to share his amazing story. As President of the DFW iaedp Chapter, it was an honor to present him with the “2013 DFW iaedp Chapter Community Member of the Year” Award for his commitment to explain the seriousness of this disorder, encourage people to face their addictions, and help them understand that they can find hope and happiness. Thanks Brian for all you do!”

“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.”

Susan Brozek Scott President & CEO at Afterschool Buddy, Inc.

 

“Brian is a passionate advocate for those suffering from eating disorders and addictions. He is an excellent public speaker and provided a compelling and interesting presentation to the Dallas-Fort Worth International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals at our 2012 Gala. His television show is engaging and covers hot topics as they occur, with insight, humor and sensitivity. I recommend Brian as a true professional that you count on.”
