A man with a boyish grin, contagious enthusiasm and a quirky sense of humor, Brian Kurth is the founder of Brian Kurth + Company and VocationVacations, the leaders in career mentorship, transition and reinvention (MTR).

As a sought-after speaker, Brian is known for his wit, wisdom and common sense. He can open minds to new career and lifestyle possibilities and how to turn those possibilities into realities. He has spoken to a diverse range of companies and groups including AARP, Ameriprise, Disney, Intel, Microsoft, and colleges, universities and alumni associations.

Get Brian talking (no problem there!), and he will explain how to explore and discover a new career by working through a proven eight-step process centered on mentorship and the importance of hands-on experience in one’s personal and professional transition and reinvention. Bringing the lessons and experience learned from a decade-long successful career in the corporate word, his entrepreneurial endeavors since 2004 and his own self reinvention, it’s no wonder Brian is considered the guru of career mentorship, transition and reinvention and is the media’s “go-to” guy for guidance and advice on how to find and work with a mentor and use the lessons learned to make informed career and lifestyle decisions.

As the author of the how-to book, Test-Drive Your Dream Job – A Step-By-Step Guide To Finding and Creating The Work You Love (Hachette, 2008), Brian is a recognized expert in the field of MTR and has made guest appearances on CNBC, CNN, FOX News, MSNBC, NBC’s TODAY Show and National Public Radio (NPR), and his career advice has been featured in articles in Black Enterprise Magazine; Fast Company; Fortune Magazine; Men’s Journal; The New York Times; O, The Oprah Magazine and The Wall Street Journal, just to name a few. In 2006, he co-executive produced This Job’s A Trip for the Travel Channel. Brian holds degrees in political science, history and international relations from the University of Wisconsin and a masters degree in political science from Loyola University.
