His layer peeling approach to life in parable form is enlightening. He gives so much of himself to help others to be their very best, to do their very best and return the favor.As the recipient of the Intelligence Commendation Medal and numerous Exceptional Performance Awards, Baz is able to draw from his ten-years supporting the CIA as an undercover operative in field intelligence collection operations throughout the Far East, Middle East, Northern Europe, Central America, South America, the Mediterranean and Africa. These experiences as a Paramilitary Officer in developing and recommending policy, operational doctrine, hostage rescue involvement, as well as methods and techniques for use in clandestine activities place him head and shoulders above speakers who are not battle tested. Baz is a Citadel Graduate, former U.S. Marine counter-terrorism Officer, CIA Intelligence Special Operations Group Officer, Film and Television Writer/Producer and founder of the Association for the Recovery of Children (ARC) humbly acknowledging a 100% successful rescue rate.

On the home front his influence and intriguing reputation has catapulted his career as a welcomed spokesperson among Corporate Leaders, Law Enforcement Organizations, Public Television, Educational Institutes as well as smaller groups like the Brandeis University National Women's Committee, to name a few.His ability to scale both ends of the spectrum, no audience too audience too small, is a reflection of the seasoned veteran he is, high in demand and admired for his "speak truthfully" approach on a variety of issues, many of which are often sensationalized or distorted by the media.Like his fellow Citadel graduate Pat Conroy (bestselling author of works including The Prince of Tides and The Great Santini), Baz has learned to develop partnerships with experienced television and film makers to send his message of good-will leadership and motivation that moves the masses to take responsibility and make a difference in this world. He is respected by many as one of the Hollywood/CIA go-to-guys, Baz continues to interact with production favorites as DreamWorks SKG, MBP, TNT, FX and others as well as co-staring on NBC television series The Blacklist.Today Baz travels nationally and internationally to provide breakthroughs to awesome performance with an uncanny ability to bring simple solutions to complicated scenarios.

The Point of Your Existence

There are only two types of people in this world…followers and leaders. If you want to be a follower then you have absolutely nothing to do except follow, have someone else tell you who you are and tell you what to do.

If you choose to be a leader and make a difference in this world there are a few things you need to know that has not likely been presented to you. Of one vital principle, leadership requires an understanding that the mission has to be bigger than the person. When Baz received the Intelligence Commendation Medal from the CIA it was in recognition for highly commendable service in support of a major United States foreign policy initiative. His service was performed in an exceptionally professional manner under very arduous and often dangerous condition. His dedication, initiative, hard work and adherence to that leadership principle contributed significantly to the overall mission accomplishment.

Take a look through the lens of a man who took a risk while others were playing it safe and allow him to teach you a leadership style predicated on that principle; a leadership style that is so very often reserved for those SpecWar Operators whose method of critical thinking has made the difference in life and death. Geared towards the collegiate audience who rarely obtain the leadership skillset needed to face the challenges after graduation, Baz’s message will inspire you to take your rightful place and lead your country, your business or your family to successful outcomes.

The Narrow View (i.e. self-help)

Storytelling is at the center of our wonderful oral tradition. Baz captivates his audience and enhances his book, The Narrow View, with thought provoking delivery of a tale about people who toss their blessings away. He has assembled his skills to deliver the audience a unique insight into humanity. His storytelling of The Narrow View is powerful, entertaining and motivating. The audience participation in a brainstorming seminar afterwards is nothing short of dynamic and rewarding.

Something Bigger Than Overthrowing Small Governments

Unbeknownst to most of the world and prior to the well-known Blackhawk Down incident, there were a number of CIA Special Operations Teams at the tip of the spear…teams that had been the first to enter Somalia long before the U.S. military. I welcome the opportunity to share with you the powerful story of my clandestine assignment in Mogadishu Somalia, near-death experiences, miraculous outcomes and how it became the catalyst for what is now one of the most effective anti-trafficking child rescue organizations in the United States. I believe that the life of most people is impacted by miraculous lifesaving events; events that can convince each of you that the fingerprint of God is not just there to identify you as one of his own but that God has sent you here to this earth for a purpose. For me, these events have shown me that my purpose is to glorify God in what has become a calling to save children. I strongly believe that we each have a responsibility to connect with our Creator to find that purpose and serve it to the benefit of mankind. Allow me to get you one step closer to that connection. One man or one woman with courage is a majority. If you never believed in miracles, by the time I finish speaking, you will.

Diversity…The Lynchpin Of Deception

To see with more than your eyes and to hear with more than your ears is imperative when it comes to detecting the subtle influences that are out to destroy our Democracy. It is a skillset every American needs to have in order to preserve our freedom now and forever. A veteran of the CIA for 10 years specializing in the rise and fall of governments, Baz has a unique and profound approach to teaching individuals and groups how to navigate the fault lines of socialism and globalism as well as identifying the dirty little tricks others use to destroy America. For we who love democracy, it’s not a matter of walking the right path but are you walking the path the right way? In other words, just how effective are we in our efforts and strategies to protect our Constitution and Declaration of Independence while being infiltrated by a rather fashionable acceptance of socialism, anti-Judeo-Christian sentiment, immoral behavior and the likes.

“We will push through the lines of the enemy and do whatever it takes to make sure this road is never traveled again. To ensure our children never have to fear the loss of freedom that We The People have secured for them. We are no more in violation of the law than the men and women who founded our Constitution. For when tyrants turn the nation upside down it is our duty to right it. It has always been our duty. It is what we bled for, sacrificed time with our families for, served honorably for and no tyrant will take that away from us. Here our voice, we are taking our country back.” Bazzel Baz
