Keynote Speaker
Dr. Adolph Brown's list of accomplishments is long, but the path to his life's work wasn't easy. Dr. Adolph "Doc" Brown is an internationally recognized Real-World Business Leadership & Educational Excellence authority and master teacher, his humble beginnings and down-to-earth moniker allows him to do more than talk and communicate – Doc touches and connects. As a former Head Start student and first-generation high school graduate of a single parent mother reared in the poverty of housing projects, Doc has risen to international prominence as a much sought-after speaker for awakening youth/student groups, inspiring teachers/school administrators, revitalizing community colleges/universities, enlightening parents/child welfare organizations, encouraging faith groups, and motivating small businesses/large corporations. His content may vary, but Doc’s engaging, humorous, and evidence-based delivery does not. He is one of the few presenters who is capable of effortlessly navigating all audiences due to his varied life and business experiences coupled with having been an effective professional educator on ALL levels and in most component areas - eventually becoming one of the youngest tenured university professors in the United States at 29 years old.
