Bazzel Baz

He has a way of helping people to breakthrough and stretch to new levels of greatness. He's Bazzel Baz, aka "Baz", President of the Association For The Recovery of Children and Life Guarantor for a plethora of clients finding themselves in life threatening circumstances.

Baz's favorite quote from his father "it isn't what happens to you, it's what you do with what happens to you that counts"...helps fuel his fire as he works with his clients to move to extraordinary performance and motivation.

Baz's favorite quote from his mother "keep God first" is the source from which the fuel is derived. Throughout his corporate career he has been known for his creative, spirited, high energy and purposeful approach to developing relationships, talent and solutions.

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. 

Baz is a member of the Writers Guild of America and Screen Actors Guild, passing another milestone in 2002 as he and Edgar Strubble (composer for Country Western Singer, Kenny Rogers) finished "March On By", a patriotic song produced by Peter Panic Music of Burbank California, as a salute to the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces and Civilian Rescue Operations. Baz's twenty-year journey as a speaker has taken him through an international circuit of guerrilla leaders like former UNITA President Jonas Savimbi of Angola, Afghan Rebels, Ministers of Defense, former Ambassadors/Heads of State and thousands of freedom fighters, often under the demands to provide motivational insight and guidance.

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. He is a well sought after motivational speaker and has been called "The Life Guarantor." In addition, he has worked with hundreds of leaders and managers to coach them in successful leadership principles and is open to customizing material to meet the specific needs of the client.

How To Fight for America

This is what every American who loves the Constitution realizes that the nation is being sold out needs to know about taking the country back.  Every person needs a strategy when it comes to fighting a war and Patriots in our country are in a war now whether they like it our not.  It was not something we asked for, but it is something we will loose if we do not understand what tactics we can apply to defeat the enemy.  Make no doubt about it, we are having the same discussions in 2024 about our nation as our founding fathers did in the 1700s.  History does indeed repeat itself and if we are to be on the right side of history then we must be smarter than the Globalists, Communist, Marxist and left wing Socialists that are hell bent on destroying the United States of America so that one day it falls under the crippling grip of a One World Government.  Once thought to be a conspiracy, now boldly those who defy the Constitution have thrown out the gauntlet.  The question for all American Patriots is this…are you going to pick it up?  This presentation is a favorite among many of the RNC members in Colorado who so often have commented that much like Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin and Patrick Henry, Baz as a Patriot is respected for his knowledge of the country who draws from the recesses of the human heart.  A gifted orator and major figure in America today in media and on stage, his rousing speeches will fire up America’s fight for independence, personal freedoms, and limits on the government’s constitutional power. “ For such a time as this we were created.   We were born ready for the fight and we intend to honor our forefathers with the way we live our lives and the way we intend to die for our country.  Let it not be said that we fainted or feared in the face of tyranny but that we stood strong and showed the world that we the people will not be overcome, oppressed or denied the right for freedom.  Our blood will be mixed with the blood of those who have gone before us in defense of the Constitution and shall not return to the earth void.  On this day, let it be known that whether I stand alone or other stand with me, the fight shall be to the bloody end.”  7 December 2020

Who Are You?

Who Are You -  One of the most challenging things for people in America whether starting out in a career, active in that career or retired is finding their value in who they are and not what they do.  For so many people on the journey in life they put most of the emphasis on what they do in life to give them purpose and fulfillment. Allow Bazzel Baz to alter that perception and provide you with bullet proof principles for living a better life by sharing the wisdom of ancients who were able to grasp and apply the following concepts in life, just to name a few:

The greatest battle fought are not against the world but those we fight against ourselves.  And if that be the case then we are far greater than most other humans because it is our integrity that forces us to look inward rather than casting blame on the world that surrounds us.
We do not rise to the level of our expectations…we fall to the level of our training. 
People don’t care about how much you know…until they see just how much you care. 
Successful people are not gifted.  They just work hard and then succeed on purpose.
You are the same person every single day.  You intervene.  You take action.  You do the same thing 1,000 times, and then one day you do that same thing and it gets broadcast to the world as an “act of heroism.” Many people want to be a hero and they’re looking for their 15 minutes of fame.  But they are couch potatoes every day.  So when the opportunity comes, they are unprepared or don’t even respond.  They are not heroes.

The Point of Your Existence

The point of your existence is the playbook for self Esteem Building blocks to strengthen organizational platforms and members of any company for success. This is an education beyond textbook learning that dives into the very core of why you are here on this earth.  Each day in the work environment companies and organizations are dealing with the ever-changing attitude of wokeism, cancel culture, apathy and non-disciplined employees that simply have never been taught the value of being anything other than who the world tells them to be.  They have been taught since grade school on what to think rather than how to think.  They have not been taught how to navigate the fault lines of uncertainty and hard times.  They do not realize that the fate of the nation is in their hands because they are the fate of the nation.  They are the leaders that must stand in the gap of uncertainty, holding fast to common sense and ready to set the example that generations after them need to see.  They must understand that if they are to be great at anything then the mission must be bigger than the person.

We will take a look during this presentation through the lens of wisdom from a man, Bazzel Baz who took risks while others were playing it safe and boldly and unashamedly guide the audience towards a unique leadership style that so very often is reserved for those Special Operations personnel whose method of critical thinking has made the difference between life and death.  This presentation has proven itself to inspire members of the audience to take their rightful place and lead their country, their church and their friends and family to successful outcomes and to push them one step closer to being the warriors and people God intended them to be.  Bazzel Baz is not here to show anyone in the audience how to fulfill positions of prominence but positions of obedience, responsibility, integrity and perseverance.
