because I said I would Founder, Alex Sheen, Inspires Audience

Friday, Aug 31, 2018

As one of the foremost expert on promises, Alex Sheen has combined research and philosophy with tactical and actionable steps to help people become more committed. Integrity and character are often defined by how someone treats their promises. Too often in life, we say, “I’ll get to it” or “tomorrow.” This attitude can begin to define a culture.

Alex Sheen, Founder of the social movement because I said I would, travels the country talking about the importance of a promise and its impact on humanity. Through emotionally powerful stories, he convincingly discusses how our character and integrity is determined by how we treat our commitments. Not only that, but 100% of Alex’s speaking fees are paid directly to the because I said I would nonprofit.

At a recent event, not only did Alex receive a standing ovation for his keynote, but the funds donated to because I said I would allowed them to do some awesome things, like start new high school chapters this school year in the Cleveland and Akron regions.

Here’s some feedback from audience members:

  • “Alex was so great to work with onsite and I’m going to be honest….  Every single attendee was obsessed with him, lots of tears, and lots of positive feedback.”
  • “His speech really resonated with our audience and I would LOVE to have him back again someday.”
  • “He was great to work with, very professional, and made our job easy.”

If you are looking for a keynote speaker that can expose your audience to the ideas, concepts and actionable advice that leads to positive change through the importance of a promise, call Executive Speakers Bureau at (901) 754-9404 to book inspirational speaker Alex Sheen.
