“You blew us away. What a powerful and inspirational talk. Thank you so much. We are going to share it with all of our QE employees, and I know that it will be meaningful and touch people and help people. Thank you for being vulnerable. What a beautiful and poetic ending about finally talking to the little boy and letting him know that you love him. That is a real healing moment.” -Joseph Milowic, Partner, Quinn Emanuel Urquart & Sullivan LLP
I highly recommend Brian Cuban as a keynote speaker for your next event. Brian delivers his message of addiction, resilience, and recovery in an engaging manner that kept our audience’s attention from start to finish. Many of our community stakeholders attending the event were so glad they attended to hear Brian’s thoughts. Thank you, Brian, for sharing your story and advocating for others in the process.”
You are an articulate, humble, passionate, talented human being. We need more people like you! Among the feedback we got from our (hard to please) attendees was: “The best program I have EVER attended – thanks to Brian Cuban”; “Really compelling presentation!”; “Fabulous”; “Very brave. Thank you for sharing your experience to help others”; “Spellbinding”. There were NO negative comments or criticisms either (a first).
“I’m sure you know this already, but you were absolutely MESMERIZING at the Jax Bar lunch yesterday!”
“We invited Brian to kick-off Winston & Strawn’s 2019 commitment to opening up the dialogue around mental health. Brian pointed out in his presentation on how many in the legal field are two times as likely to suffer from anxiety, depression, addiction, and suicidal ideations. He highlighted the need to build places of belonging where we can best serve each other and our clients, and find ways to reduce the shame and stigma around these natural human releases to the stresses of our profession. Brian pointed out that even the most successful among us are just as vulnerable and real as everyone else. Brian’s ability to facilitate this dialogue in a very approachable, vulnerable and heartfelt way is a great step in helping reduce our mind chatter and form real bonding and connections that can help inoculate us from mental health struggles. We at Winston will continue to collaborate with him and hope he helps you and your organizations find the path to well-being. Let’s take care of each other. Live well!
The event featuring Brian Cuban was a huge success for the firm. The attendance at the event exceeded our expectations and we have received many positive reviews. Brian is an engaging speaker and he does an excellent job of sharing the personal details of his own struggle and steps to recovery. We are grateful that he could help us kick off our “Year of Mental Health” wellness initiative. Brian’s message of helping others and recovery were a positive way to start off the year.
“Thank you again for agreeing to speak to our group. It was a wonderful program and enjoyed by all!”
“I had the privilege of meeting Brian Cuban and attending his presentation at our annual South Carolina Bar Convention. I found his presentation to be engaging and enlightening to the struggles of those with addictions, eating disorders and other mental illnesses. I was especially impressed with his humility and willingness to share the intimate details of his struggle with us. He exuded a genuine concern and desire to help those with similar struggles. His inspirational story left the audience with a sense of hope and proof that recovery is possible for those battling addiction. I encourage anyone who has the opportunity to hear Mr. Cuban’s story to definitely do so.”
Brian Cuban tells a powerful and compelling story that can change lives. He inspires with his honesty and his deep desire to help those around him learn from his experiences, to seek help when they need it, and, as a result, to see their way to a better future. Law student and lawyer wellness is a critical issue that we must constantly attend to; Brian brings that message home clearly and with passion. We are so proud to call him our alum and our friend.
“We were so grateful to have the opportunity to have Brian speak at our annual conference. As having previously attended a seminar at which Brian told his story, I knew our attendees would be captivated by him, and they were. You could have heard a pin drop at times. Brian brought a very personal and human perspective for our investigators to consider when dealing with those who suffer from addictions. He enlightened and helped make our conference a success!”
