I was blessed to see the Doc in action at a teacher learning conference. I especially liked how he introduced himself to the crowd. Very telling. Would love to hear him speak again.
Thank you! It was awe-inspiring! Dr. Brown is a gifted man of God. I will never forget him, his wisdom, or his message.
Thank so much from Greenville Alabama. I'm a CNP worker at WOP Elementary school he ask what did I do for the Butler co. School system and when I told him a lunchroom worker he said thx you. That really made my day. Thx you for all you do. Help people some see themselves and love who they are.
You are the best, I was so impressed with What’s In Your Backpack 🎒 at our Convention in Grapevine, Texas. I would love to arrange for you to come to my city someday.
Continued Blessings

I just wanted to reach out and say Thank You. I heard you speak this morning on the Laurie Daniels Favors SXM talk show and you were best I have heard as it relates to talking about DEI work. I listened to two of your youtube videos as well and became more impressed. I have been doing this work for 30 years and you are the first person I feel who is on target with how we can best support helping people understand how to lean in to the conversations we need to have. And this means speak the truth. Thank you for being so refreshing!! John-Peter Wilhite Ragland & Wilhite Consultants
Thank you very much for your outstanding message. I could relate to everything that he said! I was one of those students who needed to be lifted by the wheelbarrow!!!
You did an amazing job at our MPE Symposium 2021! I have been teaching 17 years and love every minute of it! This year has been hard, but being back in my classroom with my students made a world of difference. I will be posting “Faith it until you make it!” around my school. We (teachers) need to know that “even if... things will be okay!” Thank you for making me more aware of my own backpack and realizing that it was way past time to unpack it. Keep doing you and spreading your message!
Dr. Brown your message is what we needed today. It was intertwined with your background, experiences, research and best practices into a powerful message of love and empathy that surpassed motivation. Your presence at our conference brought real life transformation. -Cameron Willis
Thank you Dr. Brown providing a message that breaks boundaries and challenges bias social norms. You inspired our team to tap into their inner potential to create the change we want to see. -Dean Shepard
Dr. Adolph Brown has a unique way of making the conversation of diversity, equity and inclusion easier and digestible. He skillfully helps people shift from “talking about “DEI” to actually mobilizing in their efforts toward understanding and connecting. He has an uncanny ability to reach, impact and create breakthroughs. We are thankful that Dr. Brown created a safe space for our difficult conversations and encouraged empathy. David Sneade
There is only one way to make Adolph even better. Share him with the world! Lindsey Sykes, Teacher's College
Thank you for inspiring us toward action in a memorable way. Sean Liberman, CVS Health
This man is so motivating, intelligent and funny.
Dr. Adolph Brown, provides powerful tools to change lives and inspires people to take action through his upbeat energy and motivational teachings. ❤️
I knew Adolph as a child as a good friend of his brother Oscar, and I'm quite proud of the man Adolph has become. He has had numerous opportunities to live in bigger cities but decided to come back to his community. He lives quite close to to our old community and gives back when the opportunities present. We are proud that Adolph is homegrown and hope others see the engaged, smart, well-read, thoughtful and tough man we know and respect. Kenny D.
Brilliantly Hilarious!
Doc, thank you for your inspiration today! Your presentation in Indian Prairie School District 204 was nothing short of outstanding!
Best speaker I have seen ever! Part of his class at the National Athletic Director’s Conference!! He’s right coaches matter he’s a testimonial to that! Loved the two backpack theory! As a coach I teach my kids to leave their baggage in the suitcase at the door and come into the gym free to work hard and have fun!!
EPIC!!! Christopher Cannon
Thank you for moving us forward! -Bryan Rosen, Walgreens

Dear Doc, On behalf of the U.S. Coast Guard Hampton Roads Black Heritage Committee, I would like to thank you for making our Black History Month Breakfast a memorable event.

Those in attendance had nothing but the highest praise for the exceptional message you presented on "The African Diaspora". The program was a huge success and I received word from our Partnership In Education teachers that the students could not stop talking about your presentation when they returned to school.

Thank you for participating in our event. We look forward to working with you in the future. You indeed have made it a better day!"


DON CUFFY Program Manager Hampton Roads Black Heritage Committee U.S. Coast Guard'

Passionate! Erudite! "Change the Dance" is pure inspirational stimulation that can be popped in the video player anytime. Adolph has provided insights into Leadership that I have not found anywhere else. Both his expertise and his passion for the Leadership and Excellence are off the charts!

Gary Webster, 
Solana Beach, CA

Thank you for presenting at the recent PPP Family Festival 2005: Count on PPP! Without your contribution, the conference would not have been possible. This year proved to be another successful event. We have received many messages from participants praising your information, expertise, and pleasant style of delivery. Everyone seemed to leave with new energy to make parent involvement a major contributor to student success in their local schools. I enjoyed working with you and wish you continued success in your endeavors!


Darlene Robinett

A serious force in American education. The lecture significantly exceeded my expectations. A marvelous speaker. Adolph Brown is an excellent scholar — ethusiastic, fair in judgment, and he always provides the right anecdote. He is inspiring!

I watched "Are You Basement or Balcony?" before I even ate breakfast, it was so compelling. Listening to "Against All Odds" is nothing less than brilliant. Following Dr. Brown and seeing a 'street kid' grow into a Sage has been an inspiring experience. All of his lectures get my thoughts going, and I end up yearning for more. This is the right way to learn about character...a fascinating and very thorough conversation. "Are You Basement or Balcony" is a very highly recommended purchase.

Los Altos, CA

Dear Dr. Brown:
We are just beginning to settle down after that electrifying speech you delivered at the opening event of our Family University Network on November 20th. We were seeking a keynote speaker who would motivate parents and the entire family to get serious about the importance of learning and the value of education. Well, as we educators would say, you aced it.

The accolades for your presentation have been numerous and exceptional. Parents and interested members of the community gave you high marks on their evaluation forms and wished every citizen could experience your energy and magnetism.

Thank you for being such a vital part of our new initiative. You have helped launch what we hope will be a winning experiment for promoting the supportive and nurturing role of family and community in preparing our children for the demands of today and the future.


Dr. Marcus J. Newsome

Thank you for the powerful message today for our students. The kids here at Brooks Wester Middle School in Mansfield Texas will not soon forget you!


Dave Hodgson, Assistant Principal 
Brooks Wester Middle School

It wasn't really about getting us where we want to go, but rather about getting us back to what's important. Thanks for coming to us as a reminder and not as a savior. On a personal note I would like to thank you for helping me sharpen my leadership skills by teaching me ways to boost my team's productivity. I appreciate who you are.


National Home Builders Association

Thank you for your participation and contribution to the 2nd Annual Muscogee County Schools Character Education Day Conference in Columbus, Georgia. Your presence and excellent presentation helped to make this conference a tremendous success.

WOW!! You were TOTALLY awesome and I see you have found FAVOR. This was a teacher's institute where no one fell asleep and where everyone was able to connect and relate what you talk about to a personal experience. When I go to team meetings and there are comments about a student's behavior, I simple say have you put them in your wheel barrow? Or that is a screamer, how can we assist this student? May you continue to be rewarded with much FAVOR. My children are enjoying the D.O.C. wristbands.


Marie Carlisle, 
Forest Park School District

Thank you for sharing your time and thoughts with ns at our Convocation, August 26, 2005. Your comments were inspiring and you delivered a very timely message to everyone. Please know that you are always welcome at Surry County Public Schools.
Again, thank you.


Manon H. Wilkins, Ed.D.
Division Superintendent

On behalf of the faculty and staff of Cumberland County Public Schools, I extend words of thank you for sharing your powerful message with us, which allowed us to reflect on the true meaning of a teacher. In the midst of legislation and accountability, we sometimes forget the importance of building positive relationships. As teachers we must not forget that "relationships yield results" and 'the tree is in the seed." Children come to us with great possibilities and we must make those dreams and possibilities become a reality by accepting all children "[to ride in our wheelbarrows]."

Your presentation was emotional, clear, informative, meaningful, and timely. The message that you presented was well received by the audience baud I feel confident that it will make a difference in the way we receive and work with our students. I have received numerous comments from staff members indicating that they were moved by your presentation and it was exactly what they need to begin the school year and to implement the new programs (AVID and the Minority Achievement Office).

Your presentation is so powerful and the message that you have is so useful that all educators should be afforded the opportunity to hear and work with you. You are an extraordinary presenter! Thank you so much for sharing your expertise and warm personality with our staff.


James Thornton
Division Superintendent
Cumberland County Public Schools

I can't wait to get your DVD and show it to some of my colleagues at school.

Dr. Brown has been my executive coach for over a period of one year. Because of Dr. Brown's coaching of me, I am a very different executive. I have been able to positively influence change and lead courageously. Our work environment is much more productive and positive, acommodating of different personalities. I am convinced that we would not be where we are today without the help LEAPS consultation and training.


Keith Tapers 
Well-Body Spa

Truly a motivational speaker. Useful and relevant. In 23 years of being informed and entertained by countless speakers, no one has entertained, engaged and motivated people more than Adolph.


First District RESA
The Speaker's Network Inc.

Hilariously funny and brilliantly motivating. I now realize that when you book Doc, you get a top notch motivational speaker, a gifted scholar, and comedian for the price of one.

Refreshingly different and very effective. You get out of breath just watching him. His energy and enthusiasm are utterly infectious.

Doc was profoundly moving and passionate. Your talk was underscored with an expansive, almost giddy sense of possibility for our students and our profession. You gave such a gift of performance that days later we are still marveling over it. Nothing could have prepared us for such a hypnotic presentation.


North Dakota Education Association

It was a spellbinding experience. Your story is not only about the human spirit, it was really about all of us. We all want to see you again.


Cheryl Townsend Bunting 
Parent Involvement Specialist, NPS 
Department of Compensatory Education Programs Parent University

I have known and worked with Adolph Brown as a consultant and facilitator many times over the past 10 years. What strikes me the most is Adolph's depth of connection with all staff - hard-bitten executives as well as neophyte employees. My team recently used Adolph as a consultant for teambuilding and we always found Adolph to be, foremost, a good listener. He is sensitive to the needs of both the organization and the individuals that comprise it. The improvement in our employees' attitudes and performance is simply stunning.


Dollar General Corporation

Many lives were saved and changed by the messages you bring.



What a great motivational speaker you are. I can't remember the last time I have relieved so much stress in one environment. You were sensational. I'm sure that your family (children) will develop as well as you have in your life and time. When I told my family about you and what I said to you they couldn't stop laughing. I would have never believed that it was you but, after I was introduced to you I still did not judge you from what you were wearing. I honestly thought you were a kid just hanging out because you had nothing better to do. I just thought that maybe your mother could have feed you before she put out the banquet food. LOL. Anyways keep doing what you do because you do it so well. Have a blessed day.


LaDonna G. Campbell 
West Virginia Education Association

Doc was captivating, inspiring and effective. His customized presentation was fast-paced, interactive and definitely intelligent and right on target


Secondary School Principals Association

...Adolph was thoroughly engaged and completely committed to the consultation he provided for us. People who were previously unhappy and disenfranchised were empowered, charged for positive action, and began taking responsibility for the success of the organization. He brought experience, heart, and wisdom to our division. I would use Adolph again to build any team that I was a part of.


Chad McCaskill
Camden County Public School System

Dr. Brown, many thanks for the marvelous workshops you conduct for us year after year.......The feedback for your seminar was excellent. Your evaluation score was a 5 out of 5. Here are just a few of the many positive comments you received: "Has a way of making everyone feel special." "Doc is better than prozac." "Doc is out of his mind for all that is GOOD!" "I am a true fan of the Doc. He really changes lives.

Memphis Public Schools

Wow! We absolutely adored your address to our teachers, but your presentation to our students was far better than anything we could have imagined!

Dade County Public Schools

Virginia Commonwealth University
Diversity Access Programs 
Health Careers/Education and Special Services for Students

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

I've heard others say that organizations need an Adolph Brown kind of speaker. It was great to finally meet you. You have the kind of insight that is not retrieved from academics. Your ability to weave the goals of our organization throughout your talk was brilliant. Thank you for the 'can-do' message and firing us up.


Karen Petersen, Training Manager
Employment Services Management

We saw God in you. Thanks for all you do to uplift, encourage and motivate others. Continue to allow your light to positively shine.


Thomas Daley, Airline Ticket Agencies

Thank you for a phenomenal presentation! You have helped to set the tone for this coming year - "If things go wrong, you don't have to go with
it!". As mentioned, many of those present today participate in programs
sponsored by the Office of Health Careers/Education on the health
sciences campus. We will surely echo the principles you shared as we
prepare these students for a career of service in the health professions arena. Also, thanks for your understanding as we worked through the logistical issues. Your instruction began at that moment! I trust that you had a pleasant trip back to Virginia Beach. Looking forward to our paths crossing again soon. All the best.


Kevin Harris, M.S.A.

Hope Mitchell
Long Beach, California

You were fast-paced, upbeat, and INCREDIBLY funny. Thanks for the exuberant spirit and laughter. You are a special person.


Fred Reid, World Racing Teams and Motorsports

Your extemporaneous and self-effacing style was magnetic. Adolph has earned the reputation of a "presenter of choice" because he creates a learning environment that is "real." His creativity and passion extend well beyond the walls of the conference hall. You are incredible.

You literally have to fasten your seat belt when Adolph presents. His rambunctious and high energy style super-charges audiences while challenging everyone to be more creative, innovative, and practical in everyday service delivery.


Community College Association

Something may be wrong with Dr. Brown. Why is he always so happy? And since when can psychology professors prescribe their own medications? He always walks with pep in his step and has a kind word for all. Am I working him hard enough? I can't believe he would want to share his messages worldwide. We are thankful for Dr. Brown. He makes learning fun as it should be.

University President

Thanks for your humor skills for team building, customer service, and stress management. Our prayers were answered!


Market Management

Thank you for assisting us in understanding all dimensions of diversity and their impact on the work environment. You pushed us beyond our comfort zones to explore our own biases and assumptions. Bridges were indeed formed!

Honorable Judge Greg Mathis

Thank you for reminding us that people from adverse environments do and can succeed. I will forever remember that 'doctors save lives and teachers build them.'

Adolph's presence at our Opening Convocation was like opening a bottle of champagne. He was entertaining yet powerfully inspiring.


President of Andrew College

I finally figured it out. You are the educator's T.D. Jakes.


Renee' Andersen

We just love Adolph. He's such a giver and we have learned so much from just a few of his gifts. Thanks for leaving a few of your books. Very seldom do you read a book that truly delivers what the title promises your books are such books.

Janesville, Wisconsin

You were a humorous and entertaining motivational speaker who actually had something to say.

You are a GREAT MOTIVATOR! Your message lasts. I have always remembered it since I heard you at Brandon Middle School 6 years ago. Thank you for the inspiration and motivation today. You truly make a positive impact on the lives of others.

Mr. Bobby
Bayside High School

As always, Doc makes learning seem fun, and comes across less like an expert and more like an experienced parent sharing the wisdom of raising seven children. He taught us to live with love, humor, and humility. Even as a most respected speaker of our time, to hear his voice was magic.

Kansas Fatherhood Coalition

Nothing less than brilliant, listening to him has been one of the most profound, inspiring and enjoyable experiences of my entire life. bar none.

Arthur Cameron
Fresno, CA

A profound, resounding, and meaningful pick-me up! Dr. Brown's wise insights and practical ideas will transform millions.

A Maryland Parent

My sincere thanks for the seminar that taught us all how to practice
love, especially for thy neighbor. Although his talk had many outstanding qualities, love was the distinguishing feature from other remarkable presentations I have seen. I left feeling upbeat as well as a new feeling of "upbuilt." It is my hope that he continues his enlightening talks to bring unity to groups. He is a fine example of high morals and exemplary behavior.

As someone who can be fairly cynical about speakers, I raucously cheered you. You shared an amazing message of hope. It is obvious that you are quite the problem-solver and troubleshooter. You turbo-charged our meeting. We loved your energy and passion. Thank you for showing us how laughter and love of life remains through any trial. Simply great!

Your much needed and well received message was spoken eloquently. You are sharp, funny, and hip, but at dinner the day before your talk we discovered that you are equally serious, sweet, and sincere. One of our educators described you best. She said "Dr. Adolph Brown is what I dreamed I could be." MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

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.
