Shelby County Schools thanks

Shelby County Schools thanks you for the inspiration. We're off to a great start this year because of your words. All the best and "...don't stop thinkin' about tomorrow..."-Kirbrina Carroll, Shadowlawn Middle School/7th Grade World Geography

recently saw you speak at the

recently saw you speak at the opening day for Marshall County schools. I applaud you for your inclusion and stories about your daughter, Dana. I have taught special education for 23 years. The resurgence of the "R" word in our student's and adult's daily language makes me crazy. I get picked on a lot about it both from the kids and my co-workers. I just believe that is one word that should no longer be in our vocabularies. I compare it to the "N" word in the level of offensiveness. Neither should be used. It is wrong no matter what! Give your daughter a pat on the back for her courage in dealing with people who use these words and keep fighting the good fight. In Christ, Donna

I was in attendance at the

I was in attendance at the talk you gave in Marshall County. Thank you so much for coming! You, by far, have been the best speaker we've had to inspire us for the beginning of the teaching year. I enjoyed you so much, and LOVE your t-shirt displaying the sex symbol. So right you are! We have taken Jesus out of the schools, and we are so sadly lacking His guidance as a country because of it. You made an impact on me, and I wanted you to know. I am praying for you and your family for continued success in your future endeavors. Thank you for the blessing, Amy Lepore

Unabashedly Uplifting! We

Unabashedly Uplifting! We were totally engrossed in the message you delivered. Best, James Hertford

Doc, I just wanted to say

Doc, I just wanted to say thank you for speaking again at our enrichment day July 21, 2011. I enjoyed every minute of the time you had with us. I am still laughing thinking about your daughter and the bully. I can picture it, priceless. I've taken other messages away from your speaking. I've weeded out some basement people from my life and added more balcony people. I feel much better for it. Dancing through the rain is a fantastic idea as well. I used to do it when I was younger but not as much as I got older. I think it's time to go and play in the rain again. The stories and theories from you and your grandfather were wonderful and very thought provoking. Thank you and thank you 10 times over. I think the way you present ideas and thoughts just seems to make them stick longer than being in a boring lecture.

Thanks for sharing your story

Thanks for sharing your story with our fifth grade students during their promotion ceremony in Norfolk. Many parents were awed by your presence. Your words of encouragement is what we as a people need to hear. You were extremely inspiring. AP @ P. B. Young ES

Thank you for going above and

Thank you for going above and beyond by doing the radio and television interview, on top of staying back to speak individually to our conference participants. Your non-stop "good natured-ness" was quite evident during your two day visit with us at the American Holistic Health Meeting. -Charles Mango, DO

Your comments to our students

Your comments to our students could not have been any better. Thank you for reaching our children. Bessie

Thank you so much for encouraging my heart today .....I was the lady who spoke of the correlation of your cs with what the Rwanda Hotel gentleman said "It was just the right thing to do"...I felt I met a kindred spirit today ( Anne of Green Gables reference)..as you shared with me would love toshare a couple of other correlation quotes with you ...just let me know and God's Blessings on you and your ministry!!!!

Adolph is ahead of his time. His messages can singularly improve America's educational systems 100%. It is a shame that society "does not know what it does not know." Godspeed on your mission and keep shining brightly. :Brandon Kaufman

You are something else. I

You are something else. I had no idea I would learn as much as I did as a 60 year old adult woman. Sometimes, we do not know what we don't know. You challenged my belief system in so many ways. I thank you for the work you do. Godspeed! Jackie Scott

Adolph, you are so electric

Adolph, you are so electric and energetic; It is amazing how you are so in the moment. Looking forward to seeing you at our June meeting. -Katie C.



Adolph is hilarious and

Adolph is hilarious and genuine. He is a gifted speaker with a wondeful sense of humor in delivery of very powerful messages. After our extensive conversations, I found Adolph had failed so much that success was eventually a given.:-) He is a Modern day Healer...incredibly effective. Adolph is the Truth! His work had a fabulous impact on my life from the boardroom to the golf course. Unvconventional, yet a generous, funny and all around great guy. -karl P.

Come back to my town again,

Come back to my town again, you were great and inspiring to my classmates and the my school. Thanks Doc. :D

Doc, I have to say that the

Doc, I have to say that the hours of education and thought and love that has gone into your speeches have made a HUGE difference into society. I can tell you that after your presentation today at school, I didn't hear of the same stuff I was hearing on a regular basis. Also, the thing that shocked me most was definitely the face that all pants were pulled up. Your words have lifted lots of kids, and myself as a student of Hunter Huss High. I want to say thanks, and what your doing is great.

It truly was the best

It truly was the best conference I have ever attended in my entire educational career. Thank you for "having us look into the mirror as opposed to out of the window." —L. Oppenheimer

I was at the training

I was at the training 02-19-11 with EFS and I just want you to know that we really enjoyed your time you gave to us, what an awesome testimony you have and we are praying for you. I wish the rest of my staff could have beed there, looking forward to next year. I didn't have a chance to see if you had videos, would love to have even a copy of what you did yesterday. I mentioned you to our Bible Study class this morning and we have already begun praying that what you did yesterday has a lasting effect on my staff. Thank you so much. I don't usually reach out like this, but you touched my heart.-Rhonda Ray, Rainbow Academy

This was the best luncheon

This was the best luncheon ever. You are clearly head and shoulders above the rest. Thank you for taking a small opportunity to talk with my group at your table. You are just as personable and enthusiastic up close as you were on the stage. We appreciate your genuineness. Thank you for helping us turn our scars into stars just as you have. May your fitness and wellness club for at-risk youth and families continue to grow by leaps and bounds. We did not see a page to submit donations to your family’s efforts. Thank you for sharing the God in you. Gratefully, Mable Florez

Finally a speaker without a

Finally a speaker without a speech. You truly understand the concept of bullying. We believe as you do, there are a few gray areas on the issue of bullying. Your explanation of social intelligence was awesome. We thank you for giving us new and innovative methods to prevent and intervene with bullying. My husband and I most enjoyed your honesty on this subject matter. Best to you and yours. ONE LOVE! Dorothy and Anderson Kline

Thanks for a rigorous and

Thanks for a rigorous and relevant workshop at the Florida School Boards Association. We were both engaged and challenged. I personally appreciated your innovative solutions designed to improve student outcomes, increase student achievement, and ensure college and career readiness. Best to you and your family.

It was so nice to hear

It was so nice to hear someone who is so beautiful inside and outside. I wish you all the success in the world eventhough you already achieved so many wonderful things. Kendra Murphy

Dr. Brown, I am a teacher at

Dr. Brown, I am a teacher at Floyd County High School. Today at school every teacher was talking about you , quoting something that you had said, sharing with the students some of what you had shared with us. Tonight at church fellow teachers were talking about Dr. Brown. Thank you for who you are and for sharing that with others. I am going to try to stay on the balcony this semester. -Connie Quesenberry

Every year we try to bring in

Every year we try to bring in a better speaker than the year before. After Dr. Brown, I’ve no idea what we're going to do for next year! It’s going to be extremely tough to top his performance and message. Is Doc Brown available on January 7, 2012? -Dale Barnes :-)


DON'T WAIT! He is unforgettable!...This was a quote I saw on one of your pages. I couldn't agree more. Dr. Brown, you have no idea how much I enjoyed your presentation. Words can not describe how powerful of a speaker you are. I only wish that everyone I know could have heard what I heard at the Richmond Convention Center. You really reached me on a personal level. My only regret is that I didn't bring a notebook and pen. From the awesome story of how you and your wife met, to your seven wonderful children, to all your stories of obstacles growing up, to the way you talked about your mother, I will never forget it. I've never seen anyone be in a room with young adults, students, teachers, officials, black people, white people, people of all nationalities, and still be able to talk to them all and everyone have the same understanding. It was like we all could relate to you in some form or fashion. I didn't mean to bite your ear off (eyes, considering your reading this). I know your in-box is full of messages just like mine from all over the world. With everything that I said, I basically just wanted to say THANK-YOU. PS May God continue to bless you and your family. I will continue to keep you all in my prayers! LiMary Cook Fredericksburg, Virginia

Unbelievable is the only word

Unbelievable is the only word I can think of to describe Dr. Brown. My husband and I watched a recorded presentation that he did for Godby High School in Leon County, Florida. My biggest regret was that there was so many empty seats in that auditorium. There are a lot of us that missed out on Dr. Brown's live performance! One minute I was laughing and the next I was crying. Dr. Brown has the ability to make you think he is talking directly to you! He is a phenominal speaker and do not miss an opportunity to listen to him speak. Take Care, Dawn Tallahassee, Florida


Doc is the MAN WITH THE PLAN. Go hear him speak ASAP.

The students really hear and listen to your messages. You have a gift for what you do. You captivated us ALL. It was money and time well spent. I recommend that ALL students and educators in America make the opportunity to hear your richly detailed presentations. We are honored you were able to fit us into your schedule.

2 Days wasn't nearly enough time to absorb the wealth and breath of knowledge you imparted. I have NEVER seen our staff so excited to attend 2 days of lecture. We apologize for the increase of participants on day 2, it appears that the good news of your arrival spread quickly. We look forward to seeing you again later this year. It was time and resources well spent. Nottingham Cambridgeshire, England

Doc's megawatt smile is infectious. He was like steroids for the attitudes of our students and faculty. His visit was a truly heartwarming experience for all. Thanks for raising the bar. Livingstone College Administration

You were exceptional with our staff However you were amazing with our students. After visiting your website, I discovered you were a Master Educator. You certainly embody it! Many felt that they learned and observed more about teaching and learning in the 3 hours spent with you than the four years of formal post secondary education. I will be spreading the word about you! Seattle will never be the same. John Hines
5/30/13 | 10:07
You are always the highlight of our conference. Thank you for always displaying a gracious attitude to our behind the scenes team. You and your folks are awesome to work with as well. I look forward to Part V at next year's Excellence in Customer Service Conference. katie Newman

Not just professional development but professional development with Dr. Adolph Brown. Totally AWESOME! -Craig Thompson
8/30/12 | 8:36
Thank you for the fabulous presentation today at the DeSoto ISD meeting for secondary teachers! I am in the process of making an online professional development training video on classroom management for a major university here in Texas and I appreciated your enthusiasm, honesty, and reinforcement that I am doing the right thing as a teacher and a mentor. You were exactly what DeSoto needed today! I have been in this district for 27 years and continue to love my job and my kids every single day. I get discouraged when I am around other teachers who do not feel the same way. Thank you for your "REAL TALK". -Beth Wright

I attended Doc's presentationtoday at Red Oak High School in Red Oak, TX. I was impressed not only with his marvelous message and presentation methods, but also by the fact that he made a point to show appreciation for some of the least recognized individuals in the district. -Wendy Syfrett

Spoke to you once; heard you present twice and LOVED it!! I hope to follow your footsteps one day!

Dr. Brown, I was at your presentation today in St. Lucie County, FL. My colleagues and I were blown away by your enthusiasm and "balcony" personality. I'm looking forward to a rewarding school year and to out all my students in the wheel barrel! Thanks for pumping us up!!

I had the pleasure of attending one of your "speaking engagements" with the Saint Lucie County school district today. Of course, it was so much more than just a speaking engagement! I am a first year teacher and a career changer. I had my daughter at 18 years old and entered the workforce full-time when she was one year old. I was a single mom for seven years before I met my husband. Many thought I would be a statistic, but I stayed the course and earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in English by attending part-time classes year-round for eight years! It felt incredible to finish! This year, I enrolled in Indian River State College's educator preparation institute, an educational program that helps non-education degree holders to become highly qualified teachers. I have one class left in the fall and passed my K-6 subject area and general knowledge exams this summer which allowed me to obtain my temporary teaching certificate and secure a teaching job! My daughter is now 17 years old and an International Baccalaureate student at my high school alma mater! Not only did I not become a statistic, but I am excelling and passing my love for learning along to my daughter. I hope to also do that for my students. Your presentation SPOKE to me in a BIG way! I have every intention of being a "balcony" person and teacher! I KNOW that every person and child can achieve anything they dare to dream with hard work and perseverance. Thank you so much for the great work you do and for showing the world that anything is possible. Thank you for being so inspiring and representing strong values. Your presentation reaffirmed for me that education is where I belong and I am ready to be part of the mission! Thanks to your family for sharing you will all of us as well :)!!!

We had a grand time at ODU on Sunday! Thank you for having such an Original voice! I have not heard or seen anyone like you in education. I laughed as much as you made me think! You were equally effective in bridging the cultural divide. I also appreciated your Heroic self-disclosure. Doc educates! Genuine authentic personality ...conscious force in America. Socially conscious humor. - Brian Knight, Education Coordinator

I wish to thank you for the facts at the Vision 2020. So often presenters are selling their new innovative products via keynote talks and you delivered the facts. I look forward to hearing you again and I enjoyed perusing your website. John Mayers

Your student presentations are a great demonstration of classroom management and an excellent example of the "model classroom." We were all touched by your gifts to zero in on our most challenging students in a gymnasium of 5,000+ students. It was an awesome undertaking to observe you in action. Thank you for your message to our staff, our students, and the parents. I can honestly say ww are ALL now finally on the same page. -Stephen Remley

at my job meeting saurday may 19,2012 for the first time in ten years ive been with the Y i really enjoyed the meeting listening to doc brown in real talk,talking about real life situations i understood exactly where he was coming from. I really had something to grasp on I was mesmorized by his speech,it really couldnt get no better then him from Dr.Phil,Oprah,or Montel Dr.Brown out done all of them I really feel it came from his own experience that made me believe in him...I now look for apples that has to look up to me....

Good Day, First, I would like to thank you for what you do. Thank you for opening my eyes and allowing me to see what I do differently. You have given me new tools to till the hearts and minds of the children I see Monday thru Friday. For that, I am extremely grateful. Never have I had the opportunity to see a Dean, a professor, a Doc- all in one, make a points the way you do. I believe as you do - "Love 'em or Lose 'em." Phrases that stand out in my mind a lot differently and a lot more vividly. Thank You! Fayth Thomas

Dr. Adolph Brown III spoke at the Colonial Heights Chamber of Commerce 63rd Annual Dinner meeting on March 22, 2012. His message to the group of 280 business, school, and government leaders was inspiring, entertaining, and fun. Adolph has a gift for telling profound truths in a way that any one can understand. He uses his talents for communicating and teaching to bring a very important message that resonates with with his listeners and needs to be heard over and over again. If you ever have the opportunity to secure Dr. Brown for your school system, your corporation, your organization; I would strongly encourage you to do so. You will be impressed 100% from start to finish with what he and his organization bring to you. Sincerely, Roger M. Green Colonial Heights (Virginia)Chamber of Commerce. 804 526 5872
