Les Brown helps business owners and leaders from all sectors of society expand towards new opportunities.
He is the author of the highly anticipated book, You’ve Got to be Hungry, where he skillfully weaves his compelling life story into the fabric of our daily personal and professional lives.
After mistakenly being declared “educable mentally retarded” in elementary school, teachers did not recognize the true potential of little Les Brown. However, he used determination, persistence and belief in his ability to go beyond being a sanitation worker to unleash a course of amazing achievements including broadcast station manager, political commentator and multi-term state representative in Ohio.
Revered as an icon by his colleagues, Brown received the National Speakers Association coveted Council of Peers Award of Excellence (CPAE), the prestigious Golden Gavel Award for achievement and leadership in communication, and a Chicago-area Emmy® for his unsurpassed fundraising pledge drive for the Public Broadcasting System.
Toastmasters International also voted him one of the Top Five Outstanding Speakers.
