With his unique proven process Brian will take you from blindness to sight and toward vision. This is done with tools and techniques that are relatable and actionable.

My Background

Brian is a member of the National Speakers Association. 


I am writing as a professional speaker reference for Brian Wagner. He recently delivered his keynote speech "If You Could See What I See" at our OhioHealth Neuroscience Symposium and amazed our audience of doctors and allied medical professionals. Mr. Wagner is an inspirational speaker that captivated his audience. He used humor and stories to convey what he has been through and how he helps others to do the same.

As an organizer, easy of working with Talent is key, and Brian was incredibly easy to work with. Once we had decided to hire Mr. Wagner, he held two separate meetings with a subset of our audience to connect with them on a personal level. This paid off when it was time for him to deliver his speech. Some of the comments that we received from the audience are as follows:

"Very personable and entertaining"

"Great sense of humor. Compelling story."

"Charismatic" "Uplifting" "Awesome" "Excellent"

Brian Wagner was one of the best speakers that I've had the pleasure of working with. He was very responsive and well prepared. It was a treat to work with him, and we would certainly recommend him to other audiences.

Brian is the unique blend of talent and personality. His message is so important for us to hear, challenging each of us to become aware of our blind spots and tackle them head-on.

After facing a terrifying and life-threatening situation, he takes what he has learned to others, supporting them not only through personal challenges, but showing how all aspects of life and work can be impacted by "blindness" to certain truths.

His message will touch you. His personality will charm you. And his humanity will speak to you.

“At our last two annual conferences, Brian provided phenomenal presentations and is never one to just show up, regurgitate knowledge and then disappear. He drives engagement, fuels conversation and creates connections. In fact, he recently became a part of organization and attends our networking events and actively socializes with all our segments of membership. Brian provides keynotes, workshops and Masterminds based on his book as well as John Maxwell's leadership books. In addition to knowing our organization, he stands out for being collegial, committed and easy to manage. We’ve all had those ‘experts’ who require constant hand-holding. Brian is not one of them. For these reasons, I wholeheartedly recommend Brian to anyone that is considering having him speak to their organization.”

Brian was the guest speaker for my quarterly regional sales meeting in Columbus, OH. Brian's story and teachings, combined with his charisma and passion made for a fantastic learning experience! My team members were moved by his message and we all now are more aware of our own "blind spots"! I have known Brian for most of my career and he is both a community leader and industry professional of the upmost character. Thank you for your inspirational message Brian!

Brian Wagner is an incredible person. His story will touch your heart and soul. While he faced with adversity, he and his family overcame these obstacles with grace, humor and humility. Over the past four years, I have worked with many speakers and Brian is one of the most endearing speakers to date! He is flexible, easy to communicate with and reasonable! I highly recommend Brian Wagner as a keynote speaker at any event! His personal story and the extraordinary insight he shares will renew your compassion, love for family and open your eyes to roadblocks you may not even see! I am honored to a part of the @winkingwagners!

One day in 2011 I woke up blind. Since then, a portion of my sight has returned. However, I see more than I ever have. That's why I help others with their blindspots, vision and what makes them unique.
