As one of the world's most renowned motivational speakers, Les Brown is a dynamic
personality and highly-sought-after resource in business and professional circles for
Fortune 500 CEOs, small business owners, non-profit and community leaders from all
sectors of society looking to expand opportunity. For three decades he has not only
studied the science of achievement, he's mastered it by interviewing hundreds of
successful business leaders and collaborating with them in the boardroom translating
theory into bottom-line results for his clients.
Brown's message works because "he kindles the warmth, humor, and well being in a society that's seen the gradual disintegration of families and mounting technology and alienation in industry," Maureen McDonald wrote in the Detroiter. Brown knows the function of the able individual in a worn community: he delivers not only nurturing words but money as well, donating 20 percent of his business revenues to fund drug prevention programs. His message also works, and for a stronger reason, because he is not an outsider, an academic who offers a theoretical prescription. "I can't lecture on something unless I am living it," Brown wrote in his 1992 bestseller Live Your Dreams. He connects with other people's lives-their misfortunes and missed opportunities-because he has been through it all and triumphed.
Les Brown's straight-from-the-heart, passion and high-energy, motivates audiences to step beyond their limitations and into their greatness in many ways. Over the past decade, Les has expanded his role from keynote speaker to Master Trainer, creating the kind of workshop learning experience that got him committed to personal-and- professional development many years earlier. His charisma, warmth and humor have transformed ordinary people into extraordinary achievers by using his own life, and his in-depth study of other's challenges, to build an understanding of what works, what doesn't work, and why.
