Insight. Humor. Inspiration.


"Ancora Imparo" (translation: 'I am always learning') was spoken by Michelangelo when he was 87 years old. As a long-time instructor for both universities and trade associations, I have built a national speaking practice that keeps me in touch with top producers, best practices, and industry trends. This exposure keeps me constantly learning and I personally thrive in sharing what I've learned with others.



Blaine Strickland has been a public speaker since the mid-1980s when his role as the manager of a 40-person office often required him to address local, regional and national audiences.  In the 1990s, Blaine began to teach in large public universities as an adjunct professor in classrooms that ranged from 25 - 450 students.  In 2007, Blaine became a Senior Instructor for the CCIM Institute, which has enabled him to travel across the country addressing students in week-long classes.  Today, Blaine continues to speak and teach on a national platform.  He is a highly-rated, well-read, enthusiastic story-teller, relating his many ideas and experiences to the benefit of his audiences.
