Speaker bio:

Brian Longwell, Business Owner and Corporate Comedian

Brian Longwell has an MS in electrical engineering and spent 11 years working for AT&T’s Bell Laboratories. Radio Shack employees cannot help him. After realizing that he had successfully burned his career path bridges before crossing them (his performance reviews frequently stated that he was “disruptive at meetings”), he left and started his own design consulting company Special Projects Group, Inc. ( which has employees, vacation policies, and Mr. Longwell vaguely in charge. Parallel to all of this, Mr. Longwell has worked as a professional comedian, successful enough to fund the formation of Special Projects Group, which in turn has been successful enough to allow him to return to performing so that he can once again fund the company to keep it open.

As a Corporate Comedian Brian’s “presentation” gets serious laughs from business owners, managers and entrepreneurs alike. If you are thinking that his time with us will be the same old “RAH RAH” talk typical of business coaches and corporate motivational speakers – stay tuned!  Brian starts out telling stories like any other speaker does, but then turns on his overhead projector with stick figure slides, and a seriously entertaining and humorous performance that will have you rolling in the aisles.
