I recently had the opportunity to hear Mr. Ya'Ron Brown present a seminar to a group of teenage young men and adults. He clearly understands the essence of commanding the audiences’ attention.  I observed the crowds’ reaction to him---they remained fully engaged and eagerly looked with anticipation for what’s next!  What I enjoyed most about his presentation is that Ya'Ron mixed humor and storytelling to ease the audience so they would remain in sync with his topic.

Ya'Ron Brown is a master motivator for children and adults. He uses innovative motivation strategies to connect with his audience. He had our students highly engaged during our “Student Impact” workshops, and our students were able to easily relate to his “Lion vs Sheep” analogies. We are fortunate to have him as a community partner and mentor to our students because he genuinely cares about seeing our youth overcome obstacles, chart a path to success, and achieve their desired goals. His experiences as a counselor and entrepreneur give him a vast range of talking points and strategies to pull from, and I highly encourage you to secure his services because your organization will benefit.

He has a unique ability to connect with his audience in a meaningful way through the use of humor and experiential exercises.

If you want to see change in the direction that gives your life meaning and purpose or you want your audience to feel inspired, you want Ya'Ron Brown at your next event.

Ya'Ron teaches individuals and organizations how to create and generate Change to Create Success - a philosophy and strategy that is based on three fundamental tenants:
​1. Change is a part of our DNA, but we fight it with all our being
2. To be your best, you must be willing to accept that change creates success
​ 3. To accept change, you must be willing to follow certain steps

"More and more companies are complaining about a lack of social skills in new employees."

These transforming principles of Change to Create Success are found in all of Ya'Ron’s keynotes and seminars. With more than 10 years of experience in relationship building, conflict resolution, personal accountability and professional counseling, Ya'Ron uses authenticity, humor, and experiential exercises to deliver each of his messages. He guides people to see that in order to create opportunities to live a valued purposeful existence, the only thing that is needed is their commitment to make it a reality. Ya'Ron invites his audience to change their perspective, by uncovering purpose, defining values, and critiquing meaning of language, which are the steps necessary for change to exist. Information is shared in a clear, simplistic, and understandable style appropriate for any audience.
