Biography

As a renowned author, speaker, television and radio personality, Les Brown has risen to national prominence by inspiring others to shake off mediocrity and live up to their full potential.  With no formal education beyond high school, Les has distinguished himself as an international authority on harnessing human potential. 

Born a twin in low-income Liberty City in Miami, Florida, Les Brown and his twin brother were adopted when they were six weeks old by Miss Mamie Brown. As a single woman with a big heart, Miss Brown had very little education or financial means.  With young Les’ inattention to school work, his restless energy, and the failure of his teachers to recognize his potential, Les was misdiagnosed as educable mentally retarded.  Suffering for years by the label and the stigma, Les was nevertheless driven by his passion to learn and his hunger to achieve his goal as a radio disc jockey. 

In a humorous twist of fate and cunning, Mr. Brown rose from a hip-talkin’ morning DJ to a broadcast manager; from voracious reader to author; from community activist to community leader; from political commentator to three-term state legislator; from a banquet and nightclub emcee to a premier keynote speaker for Fortune 100 companies. 

In 1986, Mr. Brown entered the public speaking arena on a full-time basis and formed his own company, Les Brown Enterprises, Inc. Aimed at individuals and organizations, the company provides motivational products, personal development programs, speaker development workshops, keynote presentations and interactive business trainings. 

In 1989, Les Brown received the National Speakers Association's highest honor: The Council of Peers Award for Excellence (CPAE).  In addition, he was selected one of the World's Top Five Speakers in 1992 by Toastmasters International and became the recipient of the Golden Gavel Award.

Commencing in 1990 and recording the first in a series of six PBS specials, Les launched You Deserve which was awarded a Chicago-area Emmy.  It became the leading fundraiser for pledges to PBS stations nationwide.

In 1993, Les Brown became the host of his own nationally syndicated daily television talk show, The Les Brown Show, in which he focused on solutions to the day’s challenges rather than the problems. 

Recognized internationally, Les is the author of three bestselling books:  Up Thoughts for Down Times, Live Your Dreams, and It’s Not Over Until You Win.  With his Sunday morning radio talk show, Chicago Speaks with Les Brown, Les’ outreach embraces the homeless and the world’s most powerful leaders. 

A leading authority in understanding and stimulating human potential, Les Brown’s electric and powerful delivery, stage presence and personal insights have built his international brand of “It’s Possible.”  Les' customized presentation is driven by his approach to each unique audience.  Before he gives a speech, he builds a speech.  The end result is that Les teaches and inspires each audience to new levels of awareness and achievement.
