Bio

As a professional motivational speaker, I have been "edutaining" audiences for years. Empowering, encouraging and inspiring others is my passion. It is tremendously satisfying to use my experience as a business executive, workshop designer, motivational speaker and personal transformation coach to help young people lay the groundwork for quantum change. My skills, experience and qualifications are perfectly aligned with your needs. Earlier in my career, while working the New Jersey Department of Corrections, I began to see that I had a gift for shaping behavior through coaching and inspiration. The personal transformation techniques that I employed in that role brought me success in the corporate world and with Landmark Education Corporation, where I spent ten years leading seminars, managing sales and recruitment and overseeing volunteer programs in the United States and in Africa. Throughout the 90s, I created initiatives designed to spur personal and cultural transformation in every socio-economic group. As the Director of the Youth Business Entrepreneur Program for the Boys & Girls Club of Chicago, I helped teens launch and run a manufacturing company. In 1995, I partnered with the Chicago Alliance for Neighborhood Safety and the Chicago Police Dept to design and coordinate the city's first-ever community alternative police training workshops. As the co-founder of the International Black Summit, I designed and delivered workshops that have helped thousands develop a vision for the future. In 2000, I co-founded The R.E.A.L. One, LLC, a leadership development partnership and co-created Transcending Differences: Breaking the Cycle of Prejudice, a groundbreaking seminar designed for Canadian business and members of the Human Rights Commission of Nova Scotia. Today, I lead The Young Group, a consulting practice that helps clients reveal passion, recover vision and transform both into action plans that produce fulfilling and rewarding results using experience
