Challenges and adversity is no stranger to this Chicago native. Raised in Harvey, IL, Lamont Brown experienced a lot of success athletically. However, while attending Brooks Jr. High School, he had difficulty dealing with his mother being on drugs, his stepfather leaving and his biological father in and out of jail.
While at Thornton High School, he began to give in to the pressures of street life, where he found himself in handcuffs over 20 times. Although he was a convicted felon twice, he was fortunate to escape the penitentiary by successfully completing sixty months of strict probation. Unfortunately, he had several close friends that received jail terms ranging anywhere between 3 to 30 years.
In addition to having a second chance, Lamont was fortunate to witness his mother delivered from drugs and to reunite with both fathers. But in the mist of negativity, Lamont decided to change his life and become an example of hope to many. He wanted to become successful so that he can reach back into the communities of the world and say, "If I can do it, you can to".
Lamont's accomplishments have been outstanding. Over the past few years, he has spoken to thousands of individuals across the country on entrepreneurship, team building, overcoming cultural diversities, motivating the motivator, pursuing your dreams and much more. He has empowered students and staff in the Chicagoland area on every level, ranging from elementary schools to universities.
Just to name a few, Lamont has shared the stage with International Speakers Les Brown and Marcus C. Gentry, R&B singer Trey Songz, Chicago Bulls legend Bob Love, Chicago Bears' Garrett Wolfe, Milwaukee Bucks' Bobby Simmons and Chicago's Top radio personalities, Ramonski Love and Tony Scolfield. Lamont was also apart of the midwest "S.T.O.P. The Violence Tour" with former high-ranking member of the Gangster Disciples, Harold "Noonie" Ward. It is obvious that Lamont has dedicated his life to helping people reach success in every aspect of their lives.
Lamont is the author of "From the Streets...To the Stage" and contributing author of "Gangster with a Heart of Gold" forwarded by Grammy award winners Kanye West and Common. Lamont is a graduate of Cain's Barber College andCo-Owner of SuperNatural Cuts Barber & Beauty Salons. In 2004, he was the recipient of a very distinguished award given by his alma mater, Thornton Township High School (21st Century).
In 2006-2008, Lamont received high achievement awards from Toastmasters International for consistantly advancing in their International Speech Contest. In his first year as a member of Toastmasters, within a four-month span, he received over 20 awards recognizing his speaking ability. He is also the Global Director of Training for A Mastermind Creation, a company affectionately known for the "R.E.S.P.E.C.T." program. As a former member of Tabernacle of Life in Holiness Church, Lamont received several awards for his hard work and dedication. He is now a faithful member of Saved By Grace Kingdom Ministries International.
Words cannot describe Lamont's internal passion and desire to make an impact in people's lives all over the world. Do not book Lamont Brown if you are looking for a Ra-Ra session, only book him if you want a strategic action plan where you are challenged to produced results!
