Les Brown is the leading authority on releasing human potential and enhancing lives. As a renowned professional speaker, personal development coach, author, and former television personality, he has risen to national and international prominence by capturing audiences with electrifying speeches and challenging them to live up to their greatness.
Born in low-income Liberty City, Florida, near Miami, Mr. Brown and his twin brother, Wes, were adopted when they were six weeks old. He was academically and behaviorally challenged as a child and labeled as a slow learner. This damaging label hampered his self-esteem until a former teacher challenged him to expand his mind and talents beyond the expectation of others.
Les Brown initiated a process of relentless self-education, helping him realize greatness in himself and others. He rose from a hip-talking morning DJ to community leader; a political commentator to three-term legislator and found his greatest talent and impact as a premier keynote speaker and trainer.
In 1986, Mr. Brown entered the public speaking arena on a full-time basis. After three years in the public speaking arena, he received the National Speakers Association's highest honor: "The Council of Peers Award of Excellence." He was also selected one of the "World's Top Five Speakers" by Toastmasters International and honored with the "Golden Gavel Award."
Les Brown recorded an Emmy-award winning PBS special and is the author of two highly acclaimed books. Additionally, he is the former host of a nationally syndicated daily television talk show that focused on solutions rather than problems. While he is one of the most sought after speakers for many organizations, he has found yet another passion for changing lives.
Les Brown decided to share his secrets of success, but personally train and develop others to become better communicators and speakers in their own arenas, thus creating The Les Brown Speakers Network. He currently trains more than 1,500 speakers and continues to reinvent himself to positively change the world.
