I've known Adolph for over 30 years and can attest that the guy you see in seminars and on-line is the same authentic guy he is with his friends and family. What many would not know is that he is more spell-binding one-to-one than with large groups. His energy is electric and contagious, even when he is not "on." in fact, he is rarely "on" with friends and family, however he is still the epitome of positivity. He always has a bright side to the most pressing problems whether of those he loves or his own. Adolph constantly uplifts others, so i thought I would stop by to give him some true words of encouragement from an old friend. I love you man! Shawn Evans 'Womb to the Tomb!"

I had the opportunity to hear Dr. Brown speak at the Indiana Association of School Principals Assistant Principals' conference. He was, without a doubt, the best speaker I have ever heard. So many times at keynote speakers are boring and you end up listening to a fraction of what is said. Dr. Brown really brought to the forefront the importance of not judging a book by its cover and looking at how we can change ourselves to better instruct and mold our students. -Jeff Bryne

You are amazing! I just heard you speak at the Multi-State Conference in Chattanooga, TN. You are like the energizer bunny and definitely recharged our batteries. You inspired a room full of people who work with children and reminded us of our purpose and the importance of what we do. There was not a single person there who was not moved by you. Thank you for sharing. Kathy Proaps 10/28/2016

Dear Dr. Brown, I'm writing to you because, I have never in my life (58 years) have ever been witnessed to a more positive, enlightened, and out-and-out WONDERFUL powerhouse guest speaker as YOU! I can't even begin to tell you how much I laughed and cried during your (our) program. THANK YOU so very much for being YOU! Sincerely and with great admiration, Lura Carpenter - A.Dorothy Hains, Richmond County, Georgia

I just wanted to say thank you for your presentation at Harlingen CISD today. It was the most inspiring event I've attended in my career in education. Being an introvert coupled with social anxiety, I didn't have the opportunity to thank you in my person, but I wanted you to know that it was a blessing to hear your words of encouragement. We need more "real talk" like yours in education. Thank you and bless you. Sincerely, Dustin Vos A man is not measured by the quantity of weight he can raise, but by the quality of child he can raise.

I heard you speak today at Quinlan ISD. I have never written to a speaker before. I just wanted you to know how you touched my soul today. When you spoke to today, it was as if you were speaking just to me. My backpack has been way to full. After hearing you, I feel more alive and at peace. I am physically and spiritually ready to start the school year. Thank you for all you do to ensure ALL children get a ride in the wheelbarrow. God bless you. Sara Lisa Avrit

just wanted to say how amazing your presentation was on Monday August 15th 2016. It was probably the most inspiring, tons of information, and funny experience that I have had the pleasure to be involved with in a very long time. I have not laughed, cried, or just enjoyed someone speaking so much in a very long time. I want to thank you for coming to our city of Red Bluff, Ca. and making not just my day, but the upcoming school year better. - Diane Ellis

I wanted you to know how much I enjoyed and appreciate your presentation for the Campbell County Teachers at Hyland Heights Baptist Church on August 12,2016. I am the nurse for Cornerstone, which is the alternative school for Campbell County. We work with students just like the ones you described and could relate to everything you talked about. "Real Talk!" Thank you again for such a great presentation. Lori Laubenstein

I attended the "Learning Rocks!" (TCDE All-Staff) training at the Community Center on Monday, August 15th. In 24 years in education I have never been to a better presentation ever!! I couldn't believe it was over so quickly!! Had I had any idea how awesome it was I would have recorded it. I keep trying to play it over and over in my head. Your grandfather was a wonderful man for you to have in your life, and you are doing him proud. "REAL TALK" I look forward to reading your books and will purchase more soon. Thanks for signing the "DANCE" shirt I bought, it will be one I wear every week to remind me to keep dancing and to teach the little ones to "dance". There are many of those little ones in my "Wheelbarrow". You are inspiring! Thank you so much!! Katherine Bobadilla Maywood Middle School/Olive View Elementary, Corning, CA Thank you!!!

Dr. Brown, For the rest of our event our educators were raving about how inspired they were and how you "get it". You reminded everyone of the joy of being an educator by bringing everyone back to the heart of things. Thank you for helping us all hold up a mirror and do a self-check. Your no pretense approach lets us all become connected authentically with the message and that is powerful. I lost count of the times I was told that you were the best speaker anyone has seen - and I have to say I agree. Cory Colby, ATPE

OMG we educators were laughing, crying, and experiencing REAL TALK today during your almost two-hour presentation!! We were all of us riveted the entire time. Such a BLESSING to begin the school year with your balcony band on my wrist!!!!

Dr. Brown , I just saw you at the Atpe convention in Austin Texas . I am a 40 year veteran teacher and world traveler. I have never seen a speaker as good as you! What a blessing you brought to all in that room. I can remember you in the lobby coming in and thinking well there is just one one more Austin crazy we see every time down here. I only see more crazies in Marfa Texas during the Chinati minimalist art festival haha. My main point here I want to make is that anyone who,can make someone examine themselves in a way that still has them coming around to staying positive about their life is a tool being used by God. I would love to be a fly on the wall in your class. Spent a lot of money on my classroom this year. So glad I found your book used on Amazon. God Bless and hope to see you again , Teresa Griffin Stanton hs Stanton Texas Ps. My husbands and I started a nonprofit called Learning in Transit or the LIT Bus. We give school age kids opportunities to see educational venues at no cost to,them. We always can use advice on how to make that continue and grow. We help all kids we can.

I saw you in Austin at the ATPE Summit, and I have to tell you, you were the most amazing speaker I've ever seen! And it's a bonus that you were talking about education. You were dynamic, engaged and inspiring. We all left floored by your presentation, but so excited and proud to be professional educators! Loved the emphasis on the fun of our jobs! Trasa Cobern

Dr. Brown is one of the most conscious researchers and presenters I have had the opportunity to interact with. He focuses on creating awareness and imparting knowledge. By the end of his seminars, most will have acquired more knowledge of self and personal discovery. Bryce Phillips

It was such a joy and privilege to hear you speak at our state conference. Your use of real time appearance/biases and music make it a very engaging and memorable presentation. Here's to finding the fair, flexible and fun! Thank you so much for having a passion for those who want to help others! V

Hello Dr. Brown! First, I want to say thank you for being an inspiration to our young scholars at Ellison High School! They are still talking about your speech and how much you have impacted their lives. Some have begun researching you desiring to know more about your life. Second, I want to thank you for inspiring me to move beyond where I am. You don’t know how much I needed to hear your inspiring and encouraging words you spoke to me. Thanks for all you do! You and your family are in my prayers! God bless! Rico Corporal Assistant Principal Ellison High School

Dear Dr. Brown, Today I attended your presentation and I was truly moved. A year ago I was in treatment for cancer. It was an extremely frightening time of my life. There were a number of things that I could have let crush me but I chose to focus on the blessings and to see that the cancer world has a lot of positive things to offer, despite the despair. The lessons I learned during my chemo journey changed me for the better. I came away as a new person... kind of like the phoenix that rises from the ashes. Anyway, what I want to say is that my faith in humanity has been restored since my diagnosis. Today you brought my faith into an even brighter light. I see that the work that you are doing is so vital because people need to recognize that now, more than ever, is a time that we all need to come together to support each other, foster our family units and our communities with love. I appreciated your humor and your dancing. It brought so much joy to all of us today. Through chemo, I discovered that it is so very important to embrace laughter and to have fun. It is like a catalyst to open hearts and encourage us as teachers, students, parents, friends, neighbors and strangers, to accept each other for who we are and to support each other to change ourselves and our lives in the most positive way. To live in love and to be grateful for all the blessings we have each and every day... that it was I took away from your presentation. Thank you for reminding me of all these wonderful things. Thank you for doing the work that you do. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity today to hear your humor and your words of kindness. I am one month away from remission. I returned to work this past September and it feels marvelous. I feel like that new teacher you described. My life is good and I am grateful to be a part of my students' lives. Blessings to you and your family! Safe travels! (Please pardon any typos... I write this while doing Scooby and Shaggy voices for my three year old.) Thank you again, Wendy Gismondi Bradford School First Grade Teacher
