Using humor, insight, and clarity, Brooks helps each participant learn how to let go of the emotional attachment to their clutter, so they can release it and move forward. Participants leave open-hearted and relieved, with simple and effective tools to clear their paths.
Letting Go of What’s Holding You Back is a motivational workshop that helps everyone take a deep look at the clutter in their lives. Palmer defines clutter as anything that gets in the way of wellbeing, aliveness, and success.
- Within the workshop, Brooks also shares an inspiring personal story about how anything can be clutter. In June 2013, Brooks had a double-lung transplant. He had to let go of something that was near-and-dear to him, his own lungs, in order to stay alive. Today he is happy, healthy and helping people take back their lives.
- Brooks is the author of Clutter Busting: Letting Go of What’s Holding You Back (New World Library 2009) and Clutter Busting Your Life: Clearing Physical and Emotional Clutter to Reconnect with Yourself and Others (New World Library 2012). Together, these books have been translated into eight languages. He has appeared as the Clutter Buster on the Oprah Winfrey Network, in Fast Living magazine, and has been mentioned in the New York Times.
- Since 2000, Mr. Palmer has helped thousands of people powerfully transform their lives through his talks and workshops, 1-on-1 work with clients, group work, books, webinars, and blog posts.
Brooks Palmer was the speaker for our organization’s Spring Workshop. His wonderful presentation on Clutterbusting was informative, interactive and fun. His stories, examples and suggestions on how to address our own “clutter” situations were tremendously helpful. I personally was able to take his tips and begin the task of de-cluttering my own office.

Brooks Palmer was a speaker at my Chicago YES! to Success seminar event. When we got the participant surveys back at the end of the weekend, he was a clear favorite. Everyone loved his unique angles on the far-reaching benefits of de-cluttering our lives and his practical tips on how to get the job done with the least amount of effort and stress! He was also a complete pleasure to work with. I whole-heartedly recommend Brooks as a speaker for your next event.

Brooks Palmer approaches the subject of clutter busting with passion and compassion . His sensitivity towards the individuals he is working with is so sincere. He clearly expresses an interest in helping them achieve a positive outcome through understanding and solutions crafted just for them. I highly recommend his workshop! We look forward to a repeat performance.

I definitely recommend him. His 'clutterbusting workshop' was incredibly popular, with over 100 people attending -- that's HUGE for our library! He provided a good mix of instruction, anecdotes, and compassion in his presentation. He started his talk by telling us to please ask questions as they came up -- so he can know what we need help with and tailor his stories and advice for this audience specifically. Everyone was engaged and enthusiastic. More than one person told me afterward that they just couldn't wait to get home and get started decluttering!

Brooks Palmer was fantastic. In fact, he was one of the best professional speakers we’ve ever heard. We received several positive comments regarding the speaking event. One patron commented on how compassionate Brooks was. She said he never used the word “hoarder”. Many patrons completed surveys and asked us to have more programs like this one. Great job!
