Brock Tully

Brock Tully is an internationally known speaker and author of 9 books, selling 140,000 copies. He has one goal when delivering a keynote presentation: To offer a heart-warming, thought-provoking, multi-media presentation that will make audiences leave caring, thinking and smiling.
 
In the 1970s Brock found himself lost and decided to take a bike trip, a decision that would change the course of his life.  He shares how this 10,000 mile journey, as one of the first people to ever tour Canada, U.S. & Mexico on a 10 speed bicycle with a 50 lb. pack on his back, ended up being a 12 inch journey from his head to his heart.   
 
From 2000 to 2013, Brock founded and was the Creative Director for the World Kindness Concert.  This event attracted World class performers to both celebrate and promote the messages of kindness, compassion, love and peace, and to touch the hearts of people around the world.  More than just an evening of music, the event raised funds to help to eliminate violence, bullying, suicide, cruelty and abuse in our society. 
 
In 2000 he decided to take another bike trip to promote Kindness.  He called it his Cycling for Kindness tour which took him through 33 States & 7 Provinces – 18,000 Km – for 7 months…all to promote a KINDER world.   He spoke to kids in schools along the way and was able to touch the hearts of people of all ages, styles, and colors!
 
In1996, "KindActs" was created, which developed in 2006 into the Kindness Foundation of Canada, co-founded by Brock.  The Foundation offers on-line programs showing ways to be kinder at work, at school, and at home.  
 
In 2009, Brock went on his third bike trip to raise awareness for a kinder world.  He called it his Kindness… Cycle it Forward Tour:  He pulled a 70 lb. trailer, through the mountains of mid America in the winter for 8 months, speaking at schools and other groups to raise awareness for a kinder world.
 
Brock is also the Co-Founder of Kindness Rocks in Schools – to prevent bullying and abuse.  And the Founder/Producer of One of a KIND Stories, an event that featured speakers who shared their stories of courage.
 
“Kindness” is Brock’s passion and his purpose. He touches lives, instilling joy and planting seeds that help develop everyone's  own ability to give and act with compassion in their own communities, schools and workplaces.
 
Brock’s simple, profound message empowers and “reminds” audiences of how their own journey can be more exciting and fun! He weaves magic with reflection, bringing love into the hearts of audiences by shifting moods and perspectives.

This is the first time I have ever been to a seminar where I regretted that it had to end. And, for the first time ever there was not one single negative remark about the Speaker.
Kim Longstreet
Past President, International Assoc. of Admin. Professionals, Brandon, Manitoba
I was moved deeply by Brock's profound and it helped me see how I can be a more positive, thoughtful, and productive person at work, at home, and in my community, but much more than that, it was how it made me 'feel'. I was so uplifted and inspired and I couldn't wait to get back to my work & my community so I could be more involved in creating a healthy, more vibrant and happy team. I really saw the benefits, for everyone, of being kind, and the ripple effect it had on all aspects of my life.

Over the years, people have responded in a heartfelt way to Brock’s keynote. These themes appear consistently in his feedback: "...it's not so much what he said, but how great his keynote left me feeling" and "...I wish his keynote had been at the start of the conference, instead of at the end, as it brought everyone together in such a positive way." Some words that have been used to describe Brock’s keynote: "impactful, empowering, reflective, inspiring, uplifting, enlightening, entertaining, heart-warming, thought-provoking, fun, connecting.”
Brock Tully is a man you feel you have known for years even though you may be meeting him for the very first time. That's because of how comfortable and calm Brock can make the room. His personality is what makes him such a magnetic individual. Our Rotary Club was honoured to be visited by Brock over the holidays as 2016 has come to a close. One of my many favourite Brock sayings: "Our happiness doesn't depend on the number of challenges we are handed, but on how they are handled". I will remember this one forever. We look forward to another Brock 'talk' next holiday season if he makes it out to see us here on Oahu at the Ala Moana Hotel.

We all loved the discussion and every evaluation that was submitted was brimming with positive feedback.When Brock Tully speaks, it’s your heart that listens. His message? “Be kind.” When you are kind to yourself and to others, things shift and life begins to change. His metaphors and messages are simple, yet thought provoking. We laughed, we cried, we contemplated. We felt our hearts open as Brock shared stories and messages of love, compassion and kindness. He lifted the veil from our black and white world to show us another one filled with colour. The theme of our workshop was “Creating a Culture of Kindness in the Workplace”. We left feeling inspired and committed to caring, supporting and being kind to one another. How great is that!

Over the years, both Donna and I have attended numerous events for personal development and growth. Several have been financial in nature, religious, self-esteem and educational, but you zeroed in on KINDNESS so beautifully. It was such a pleasure to have met you and we enjoyed your personal stories immensely. You had the audience in the palm of your hand. It was evident by the questions asked by those in attendance that you had touched their hearts.

I am so happy that we chose Brock to be our guest speaker. He was truly a breath of fresh air, and his positive energy really changes the mood of everyone around! Our event theme was on kindness and respect. Brock shared bits of his journey, as well as stories behind his books. The night also included a magic act and juggling! Lots of laughs were heard throughout the night, and the audience seemed quite engaged. I don’t remember the last time I enjoyed a guest speaker quite so much!
