Jeff Bloomfield
Braintrust

As a former sales & marketing executive, farm boy, and cancer survivor, Jeff Bloomfield will use his inspiring style and compelling life story to teach your audience how to communicate with more purpose, power and impact.

After being the first person in his blue-collar family to graduate from college, Jeff spent his corporate career in Biotechnology where he led several product launches for genetic cancer therapies. One of those therapies was for brain cancer. It was here that Jeff discovered the power of neuroscience and the fact that no one he knew in corporate America really understood how the brain worked, otherwise they wouldn’t do sales and marketing and coaching the way it was currently being done.

From there Jeff set out with a new mission, to teach others what he learned about the brain and how they can apply that information as professional communicators, particularly in leadership, sales, and marketing.

Jeff now spends the majority of his time speaking to organizations and conferences on the secrets of the buying brain and how to build and deliver compelling messaging that creates instant trust, clear contrast and an urgency to change.
