Event and Meeting Planners

If you are looking for a transformational experience led by a dynamic, credible and experienced speaker, engage Brian Gast and his team at Quadrant for your next event or meeting. Brian knows his area of expertise and passion (developing grounded and inspiring and fulfilled leaders), his audience (business professionals), and his message (leaders tap their full potential only when they are fulfilled, not when they focus on success). His programs fall into two categories: keynotes and workshops.


Brian delivers engaging forty-five to ninety minute keynotes that include riveting personal stories and compelling, practical lessons business professionals can apply immediately. Unlike typical speakers, Brian involves his audience in conversation and participation and often incorporates on-stage interviews with company or stakeholder representatives. Brian focuses on leadership, personal development, self-discovery and inspiration to evoke the unique leader in everyone. Keynotes are tailored to his audience’s needs as identified in pre-event research including research on the industry and company, interviews with attendees, and other resources.

Below is a partial list of keynote offerings:

Wanting More: How to Move from Success to Fulfillment
The Six Absolutely, Positively Worst Mistakes Leaders Make and How to Avoid Them


Quadrant offers half-day to two-day workshops designed to increase leadership and team productively, creativity and effectiveness for groups of five to five hundred. Quadrant’s workshops are a unique blend of storytelling/keynote, experiential learning, and teaching. We incorporate play and fun as Brian skillfully surfaces and addresses important blocks to personal and organizational performance. We involve participants as speakers by sharing success stories, interviewing key leaders, and creating and interviewing panels of in-house influencers. Leave the projector and PowerPoint slides at the office and get ready for candid and engaging discussions that focus attention on important truths and even undiscussibles.
