My Speaking Page
“Thank you so much for being a part of the IMA Conference.
I am amazed at my level of productivity now! Life has been pretty crazy for me but after choosing to have fun and be purposeful, I have been able to take on whatever life throws me!”
-Laura Mann, Event Organizer Indiana Mayor’s Assistant Annual Conference
Hello & Welcome
I understand the challenge of creating inspiring speaking engagements and impactful events. In prior roles, I’ve responsible for strategic planning and preparation of multiple programs, from small local events and corporate training sessions to large multi-day conferences.
I also understand that success of an event comes down to a high quality, engaging speaker. I remember the “meeeeh” feeling after an event when the speaker just didn’t have the right fit. But, if they did…influential.
I’ve been on both sides and my goal of this page is to help you “get to know me”. Instead of spending hours researching speakers, I’d like you to end your day feeling peace of mind. My hope is that this page will make it as easy as possible for you to get the information you need to make a decision that fits.
Thank you for stopping in to consider me. I am deeply appreciative. To check my availability click here.
Who Is Brandon Sobotka
My accomplished 15 year career unfortunately included a large unfulfilling period. Despite consistent advancement and what most would consider success, my life and work had lost it’s flare. Even worse I became increasingly disengaged, unhappy and eventually hit rock bottom. An individual riddled with doubt, uncertainty and fear wasn’t the me I had always imagined…I changed it.
I used rebuilt confidence, courage, energy and focus to revive a crumbling career and create a life I love. I’ve since started speaking to share career and life-changing lessons I learned. Not the typical hype, but delivering a message of authority and wisdom born from experience.
I have spent the majority of my career leading project & business turnarounds, most recently as a Consultant and Coordinator for Indiana University Health (Indiana’s Top Ranked Hospital) and Indiana’s largest school district, Indianapolis Public Schools.
I now devote my time to coaching and consulting, speaking and writing. I am happily married to my wife, Jacqueline. We have a 2 year old daughter. I spend nearly all my spare time enjoying my family, fitness, sports, reading and traveling.
