What makes Brent different? He is a bridge.

As such, he bridges obscure academic findings with entrepreneurs looking to get an edge.

Thought provoking, insightful, and entertaining insight into the science of persuasion triggers, social activation, and what the best brands are doing that you’re probably not.
