As a spokesman for this group, speaking for broadcast groups, and speaking for various athletic groups during his tenure as a sports announcer, Bryan developed his unique speaking style.

Literally married to his childhood sweetheart, Bryan says, "I met her at church, in the nursery...our first date was to a sweetheart banquet when we were in the fourth grade...I do not remember not knowing her! " Quite often he refers to his wife by the childhood nickname, Judy Babe; a nickname she was given by a much loved family friend. A career teacher, Judy Babe taught at the Alabama School for the Deaf while she and Bryan raised two sons and a daughter at their lake home in the mountains of northeast Alabama. A talented communicator herself, Judy Babe also speaks and has written many of Bryan's stories as well as much of his original humor.

Currently, Bryan is concentrating on his speaking and writing. He also continues to be involved in Carpenter's for Christ. To relax, he enjoys fishing and spending time with his family.

On site, he likes to arrive early and he does not get up tight about last minute changes you may have to make. Bryan says, "My job is to help you have a great meeting, whatever it takes."
