MOTIVATOR, TV PERSONALITY, BEST SELLING AUTHOR
As a renowned public speaker, author and television personality, Les Brown has risen to national prominence by delivering a high energy message which tells people how to shake off mediocrity and live up to their greatness. It is a message Les Brown has learned from his own life and one he is helping others apply to their lives.
Born a twin in low-income Liberty City in Miami, Florida, Les and his twin brother, Wes, were adopted when they were six weeks old by Mrs. Mamie Brown, a single woman who had very little education and financial means, but a very big heart. As a child his inattention to school work, his restless energy and the failure of his teachers to recognize his real potential resulted in him being mislabeled as a slow learner. The label and the stigma stayed with Les, damaging his self-esteem to such an extent that it took several years to overcome.
Unending Self-Education Les has had no formal education past high school, but with persistence and determination he has initiated and continued a process of unending self-education which has distinguished him as an authority on human potential. Les Brown’s passion to learn and his hunger to realize greatness in himself and others helped him to achieve greatness. He rose from a hip-talkin morning DJ to broadcast manager; from community activist to community leader; from political commentator to 3-term legislator; and from a banquet and nightclub emcee to premier keynote speaker.
In 1986, Les entered the public speaking arena on a full-time basis and formed his own company, Les Brown Unlimited, Inc. The company provides motivational tapes and materials, workshops, and personal/professional development programs aimed at individuals, companies, and organizations.
Award Winning Speaker In 1989, Les Brown was the recipient of the National Speakers Association’s highest honor: The Council of Peers Award of Excellence. In addition, he was selected one of America’s Top Five Speakers for 1992 by Toastmasters international. In 1990, Les recorded his first in a series of speech presentations entitled “You Deserve” with Les Brown, was awarded a Chicago-area Emmy and became the leading fund-raising program of its kind for pledges to PBS stations nationwide.
Les Brown is not only an internationally recognized speaker and CEO of Les Brown Unlimited, Inc., he is also the author of the highly acclaimed and successful book, Live Your Dreams, and former host of The Les Brown Show, a nationally syndicated daily television talk show which focused on solutions rather than problems.

Out of a possible score of five (meaning excellent), your presentation received a 4.21, the highest of all our speakers. Thirty of those responding said your talk was the single best part of the conference for them.

What a terrific program! I heard such great comments from my colleagues that viewed and others around the country. We had over 100 downlinks (satellite) as you know, and the audiences were large. The Fairfax County government for example, had 200 of its employees and family in the room. Your message got distributed to a group of very enthusiastic people.
