Thursday Opening General SessionDecember 3
8:15 – 9:45 a.m.
The HERO EffectTM
Kevin Brown’s unconventional path to business and personal success has taught him that winning in business and in life requires anything but conventional thinking. He grew up in Muskegon, Michigan, where his blue collar roots taught him the value of hard work and determination. Brown’s resume includes an eclectic mix of career stops that ultimately led him to the purchase of a franchise at the age of 17. With a street-wise aptitude and a never quit attitude, he helped grow a little known family business into an industry giant with annual revenues reaching two billion dollars. After a career in franchising that spanned 30 years, Brown decided to retire from corporate America and pursue his passion for bringing The HERO EffectTM message to as many people as possible. He is passionate about helping people expand their vision, develop their potential and make a positive difference at work and in life!
