As an organization that believes in innovation and creativity, we were looking for someone to ignite our group’s creativity. All I can say is “wow!” Brian’s ability to connect with folks and share practical ways to “Work Your Quirk” were perfect for our team. Our folks were able to walk away with some “nuggets” to help them use technology to connect with our schools and each other.

Southeastern BOCES had Brian as our keynote for our annual Fall Conference. For weeks after the conference I was hearing from staff members who were moved by Brian’s engaging message. Brian is a master at his craft!

Brian led an amazing session with 25 superintendents and ed tech companies at IEI’s regional retreat in Georgia. His session wasn’t your typical conference sit and get. Brian had people singing, laughing, and up on their feet. It was a highly engaging addition to our agenda.

Brian Buffington was our keynote speaker for our fall retreat for faculty and staff in our college of education. My goal was to have a speaker who was engaging and could create a sense of excitement about the start of a new academic year, and Mr. Buffington did not disappoint! His focus on “things that can’t be googled,” along with an emphasis on re-imagining or re-envisioning AI, helped faculty to think about their classroom approaches in new ways. After teaching for many years, we sometimes need a boost in terms of creative approaches to the college classroom. Additionally, we need to complicate the discussion surrounding the use of AI in the college classroom, and Mr. Buffington assisted us in navigating those conversations in new ways. Not only that, but he also left us with one of his trademark songs, accompanied by one of our faculty, in a fantastic performance that we will never forget! I couldn’t have imagined a better way to start the year.

I was fortunate to connect with Buff for the first time at the AESA conference in Atlanta last year.  After his presentation, I was inspired to bring him in for our cooperative’s retreat to share great ideas from his training and to begin to personalize our work within our 30 school districts.  It was AMAZING! The best possible addition to our retreat.  We have been Buff’n Stuff ever since and our districts are loving it!  We can’t wait to bring him back again to work with our local special education directors so they too can capitalize on the nuggets he shares to make their jobs connect and personalized with their teachers!
