    I recently had the privilege of not only of getting to know Brent Gleeson, co-founder and CMO of Internet Marketing Inc, but also working with him on a leadership presentation to San Diego’s SAGE Executive Group earlier this month. Brent is a dynamic, young entrepreneur and business leader who has the additional distinction of being a veteran of the elite U.S. Navy SEALs. I could not recommend Brent more highly for your keynote speaker.
