Here's what business clients are saying about Marty Brounstein's inspirational speaking program:
“As a management consultant and executive coach, Marty Brounstein has been a valuable resource to me as a City Manager for a number of years. But there is another side to Marty that has been a big part of his work over the last few years with which I am quite familiar.
Marty is the author of a true and special story titled Two Among the Righteous Few: A Story of Courage in the Holocaust, which promotes doing the right thing and making a positive difference.Not only have I read this inspiring story, but I also have hosted Marty for a program here in my organization, the City of Vallejo, CA. We had a good number of managers and administrative staff on hand for this workshop. Not only did they hear this educational and inspiring story, but they also engaged in a rich discussion on its lessons of ethics and values that can apply in their work lives today. The workshop was very well received, with many people moved by Marty’s powerful storytelling presentation.
I was pleased that around a year later what we started in our City organization led to Marty getting the opportunity to deliver a keynote presentation at the annual League of California Cities City Managers’ Conference. It was exciting to see over 300 top executives being moved and responding with care and empathy to Marty’s inspirational story.”

“I got such positive feedback from so many managers from Marty’s inspirational story and the discussion on its lessons of ethics they could apply. They stated that we did something different with the quarterly management meeting than just all business. The program with Marty added a very nice spice and was well worth it.”

“Marty Brounstein gave us a very strong program as he conveyed a powerful and riveting story. People may know about World War II and the Holocaust. But when you hear Marty’s inspirational story of courage, compassion, and rescue, it sparks seeing the parallels in our lives today. The discussion on the lessons we can apply from the story was so relevant for our work lives, let alone our personal lives. The audience greatly appreciated this program.”
Michelle Hemenway President of Bay Area Chapter, Women of AT&T Employee Resource Group San Ramon, CA
“How I viewed Marty Brounstein’s presentation is best summed up by one of the audience members I bumped into afterwards. I was walking down Market Street around 5 pm this evening and a woman came up to me on the street to tell me how excellent your presentation had been. She said it was one of the best she'd heard at the Commonwealth Club. I agreed. First, you thoroughly engaged the audience with self-reflective questions, then you provided a rich context of facts and statistics about World War II and Dutch society, and then told the personal story. It was engaging and informative, emotional without being maudlin, but about one of the most difficult and horrifying events of the 20th Century. Thanks again, and thanks to Harbeer and Kylie for sending you my way.”
George Hammond Coordinator for Humanities Program Commonwealth Club of San Francisco
“Marty Brounstein delivered a heartwarming story on the human spirit and its resilience to our all-staff quarterly meeting. We had a few visitors in the office that day who got to attend the meeting as well, which they greatly appreciated.
Marty is a great storyteller, which made the power of this story come through in such a meaningful way. Not only did he tell a compelling story, but he also led a thought-provoking discussion on the lessons we can apply from it. The program with its story and discussion touched our employees’ hearts and created a sense of kinship among them as they expressed common feelings and thoughts about it. Marty’s engaging presentation really moved everyone there that day in the most positive way.”
