A Mindset Of ‘YES’
Imagine if everyone in your organization was inspired to see themselves, and each other, as leaders. What if they no longer saw obstacles, but only possibilities? What if now they operated consistently as teams from a mindset of ‘yes’, we can do this.
What could you accomplish? How far could you go?
Alvin is a catalyst for businesses and organizations to change their cultures and to shift their negative patterns through his demonstration of personal accountability and leadership, and his refusal to make excuses for himself. From there, they go onto becoming more successful and building cohesive teams.
Audiences leave events after hearing Alvin’s keynote speech realizing that instead of focusing on the diversity in their organizations and around them, they can embrace the fact that we are all the same. We are all people facing life and problems, and we have the opportunity to take accountability for ourselves and to demonstrate leadership in our lives. We can choose not to be defined by labels.
Alvin takes people from noticing him for the wrong reasons, to admiring him for the right reasons. There’s more to Alvin than what’s missing. There’s more to all of us than what’s missing. He encourages people to ignore labels, to see each other’s similarities, not our differences — we are all the same. When people ask him if he has a list of things he can’t do, he asks them, “Do you?”
Although Alvin’s circumstances are unique, his story is universal. It’s easy for him to craft an experience that is relevant to your organization’s audience…so they walk away having heard the message you need them to hear.
What do organizations get when they hire Alvin?
A keynote speech and story of how we all have the opportunity look at life straight on, whether facing adversity or dealing with the never-ending issues of everyday living, and to make a choice about how we’re going to respond to it. Alvin’s presentations demonstrate to his audiences how to stop looking at what’s missing from their lives, and to stop making excuses. He challenges his audiences to change the label, and in fact, to discard the label — we are all the same.
Timeless, Alvin’s keynote presentations transcend all industries and walks of life and are most effective when scheduled as either the opening or closing keynote. He will tailor his talk to your audience and situation, and if needed, can give his presentation a title that aligns with your specific event.
Although these are Alvin’s most requested presentations, please note that they are most effective when a) they are scheduled as either the opening or closing keynote, and b) when tailored to your audience and situation – these are never ‘canned’ keynotes! We’ll have a conversation about what you need thematically for your event, and Alvin will seamlessly weave it into his presentation (and yes, we’ll even change the title!)
