Brent Valle’s story is uniquely different. Both his professional and personal stories inspire people wherever he goes to push through their boundaries in life and business.
 
Brent is the real deal; a born speaker, entrepreneur, surfer, snowboarder, all-round adventurer who is known for ground-breaking thinking and building big business fast. He is an award-winning entrepreneur who has built and sold not one, but two successful tech-companies, most recently building a $27 million dollar business in 5 years with only $2,000. 
 
Beyond his career as a highly successful entrepreneur, Brent is often referred to as courageous and a go-getter with limitless determination. He has made it his life’s mission to inspire and empower those around him to achieve what he has.
 
Brent’s story is not entirely made up of successes, his honesty and authenticity both endears and inspires audiences around the world. He struggled from humble beginnings to achieve all that he has today, and is proof that determination can take you anywhere. 
 
Hearing of Brent’s unique path through life allows for audiences to look at their own challenges with a fresh perspective elevating them to achieve whatever is on their hearts.
