Book Chad Bourquin

Chad delivers powerful keynote talks on how to discover your zone of genius and learn to live in it. He provides valuable insights on how to shift your thinking and actions to lead you to living a life you will love.

Chad began as a musician right out of high school, traveling and performing 4-6 nights a week for 5 years before it came to an abrupt end. Replaying his father’s words of “you can’t make a living in that industry” back in his mind, he decided to go do the responsible “real job” thing. He left music performance and thru a long around the horn path of becoming an agent, then a vitamin salesman, then owning an advertising company, he finally reached his end and made a decision to return to music with a commitment to climb to the top of the mountain or die on the side.


Chad has shown that with the right thoughts, right people, and right actions you can achieve anything, even in an industry that puts a huge focus on artists under the age of 30. Chad has made his living the last 5 years doing exactly what he loves everyday while raising 3 kids with his wife Tami. He has traveled all over performing concerts as a headline act, as well as teaming up with artists like Brother’s Osborne, Big and Rich, Lanco and many more for shows. In 2015, Chad and Big Time Grain Company performed for a crowd of 800,000 at the Royals World Series Celebration.


Chad has years of speaking experience with incredible testimonies of change. Whether you are in your youth and would like to start out on the right track towards your dream or you have reached a point in your life that you don’t want to run from your dream anymore, this message is for you. Chad will bring hope, even if you are not sure where to begin. But more than that, he will give valuable mental tools to accomplish anything in life you want.

To say that my life and direction have improved would be the greatest understatement of my life. Every person and plan is completely their own. As every individual is in a different place in their development, The Dream Big Tour focuses on the next step for them.  I have grown into the person I always wanted to become.

Curt Coolidge

The Dream Big Series was a huge success at our middle school!  Students were highly engaged with both the music and the messaging.  Many students shared it was the best assembly of the year!

Dr. Jessica R. Dain

Assistant Superintendent of Teaching & Learning Olathe Public Schools

Chad takes the time before the event to learn about the audience and customize the presentation in a meaningful way. They couldn’t be more engaging, relatable, down to earth, humorous and REAL.

We could not have dreamed of a better inaugural concert for our new series. Y’all went above and beyond what is expected from your involvement with the kiddos.

Youth with a passion and love of the arts don't get their soul fed and fire lit near enough, but that's what happened to her that day.  She walked away knowing that she didn't need a backup plan -- just a plan for her dream!"
