Dr. Adolph Brown - Speaking at the 2014-15 Institute to be held August 6, 2014.
Leading Expert & Marquee Speaker, Dr. Adolph Brown Lives & Embodies "MY BROTHER'S KEEPER!" Young Adolph saw his father for the first time when he was 18 years old. His oldest sibling & only brother Oscar was murdered when he was 11 years old. In spite of his start, his single parent housing project mother reared him to be the first in his family of five to graduate high school, attend college, become one of the youngest tenured professors in the U.S. at age 29 and change the world on a daily basis since. His mother refused to be a victim and it rubbed off. Dr. Brown is a "Leader Front & Center" as he still lives only a few blocks from his childhood projects. He is now President & CEO of the Business & Education Leadership Authority.
Dr. Adolph Brown aka "The World's Greatest Edu-tainer" (the name given to him by friend & colleague Doug E. Fresh - "The World's Greatest Entertainer,") is an internationally renowned master educator, character education leader, servant leadership consultant, educational & clinical psychologist, author, researcher, entrepreneur, and an influential thinker/practitioner in the fields of education and human behavior. He was once considered the youngest tenured full professor in our nation even after being the first in his family of 5 to graduate from high school. He writes and teaches from a unique perspective of an experienced passionate & award-winning educator, an innovative & effective business leader, an engaging consultant, and is devoted to positive human development. Adolph loves to receive invitations to speak. He is not your typical “motivational speaker” or self-proclaimed “guru.” He educates and amuses with a little "show and tell" and timeless principles as an education keynote speaker, corporate servant leadership speaker, student speaker, and college & university speaker. Adolph customizes each speech or training for the audience with lots of audience participation and BIG FUN!
Doc inspires teachers to connect to their students, their students to each other, and everyone to the subject being studied.
