Business Culture Consultants provides executive coaching, management consultation, and facilitation services in client organizations, and two annual transformational workshops.  The company was founded in August of 2000 by yours truly, Flip Brown, based on my assessment that owners, leaders, and managers would benefit from a personalized approach to “getting out of their own way.” I choose to keep BCC as a solo practice, and while this limits the number or size of projects I can take on, I am able to provide a singular focus to a select group of clients at any given time.  I am based in the wonderful city of Burlington, Vermont, however I do travel across North America, as the work requires.  I’m grateful that my business continues to expand by virtue of referrals, word-of-mouth, and repeat business.

Tracy Maxwell BIO:

One thing that is true of Tracy across all of her varied work and volunteer endeavors over the past twenty-five years is that she sees and values people (and organizations) for who they really are, and is committed to helping them reach their highest potential. She is authentic and straightforward in her communication, and she absolutely embodies the qualities of challenge and support. You can guarantee that she sees what you are capable of, and doesn’t hesitate to hold you accountable to that, while nurturing, guiding and supporting you every step of the way.

Tracy is a starter. She sees vacuums that need to be filled and she fills them. From launching a student-led service organization on a campus, to creating a successful new department at CAMPUSPEAK, to serving on the committee that created a large new programming initiative for her international sorority, Alpha Omicron Pi, to founding and directing a nonprofit focused on hazing prevention to writing a book and creating an organization to serve single cancer survivors, Tracy takes big actions to meet societal needs.

She has been recognized for her work four times by the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors, most recently with the Distinguished Service Award in 2007. In 2013 she was recognized by the Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values, Triangle Fraternity, the Denver Alumnae Panhellenic, and as an AOII Founder’s Award recipient for her work with hazing prevention.

An excellent writer and communicator, Tracy has facilitated hundreds of workshops, and presented dozens of keynote speeches to a wide variety of audiences, published dozens of articles and hundreds of blogs in addition to a book released in 2014: Being Single, With Cancer: A Solo Survivor’s Guide to Life, Love, Health & Happiness. But her favorite way to connect and serve is through advising, coaching, consulting and mentoring. She most enjoys and excels at one-on-one and small group guidance, and her clients speak highly of the value she brings at all levels.

Discover how Brad's life and career has been about doing what he does best, working on that skill intensely, and being open to where that takes you. While we typically hear experts say, "You have to have a plan and follow it ferociously", Brad gives a different possibility to consider. 

You will hear host Mike Domitrz and Brad challenge each other throughout this fun and thought-provoking discussion.

A little background on Brad:

Like you, happiness expert, speaker and author Brad Montgomery believes:

  • Happiness Pays.
  • It makes business-sense to invest in the “people-side” of business.
  • Speakers should be engaging AND have a useful message.

Brad combines all of these ideas — and a ton more — into everything he does on stage.  He’s a very funny guy with some very relevant ideas about how to improve ourselves and those people around us.  And…he’s funny.  (Yeah, we said this twice.)

He’s a …

  • Business Owner
  • Author
  • Blogger
  • Idea guy

But he’s also one of the funniest business speakers out there.  His keynotes and “Expanded Keynotes” (which is a fancy way to say “Longer keynotes that include some experiential, hands-on learning experiences” … which is a fancy way to say “Audience Participation On Steroids That Helps People Remember and Learn”) use an out-of-the-box blend of humor, wisdom, audience participation, music, and even confetti in order to keep the learning on high.
