Speaker Bio

Alex Sheen is the founder of because I said I would, a social movement and nonprofit dedicated to bettering humanity through promises made and kept. Sparked by the loss of his father, Alex and his organization send “promise cards” to anyone anywhere in the world at no cost. Alex is someone who truly honors commitment.

 

He once walked over 240 miles across the entire state of Ohio in 10 days to fulfill a promise. In just two years, because I said I would has sent over 12.3 million promise cards to over 153 different countries.

 

The promises written on these cards have made headlines around the world.

 

Alex is a five-time Tedx Talk speaker and his charitable work has been featured on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, CNN, The Today Show, NPR, The Los Angeles Times, and many other programs.

Keynote Topic #1

The Importance of a Promise

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 talks 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. Alex shares interesting, practical and actionable advice on how to become a person of your word. As a nonprofit leader, his message focuses on making promises to better yourself, your family and your community.

Keynote Topic #3

The Life of a Promise Program

It’s not about making a better employee. It’s not about making a better manager. It’s about making a better human.

As one of the foremost expert on promises, Alex has combined research and philosophy with tactical and actionable steps to help people become more committed. This leadership workshop is interactive and thought-provoking that will give individuals the necessary tools needed to be a person of their word, by learning how promises are made, kept or broken, and most importantly why.

We have created a program that builds individuals who lead by example. Our work isn’t about profit margins, products, and quotas. This is a different type of experience. In this program, your team will be exposed to the ideas, concepts and actionable advice that leads to positive change through the importance of a promise. Our mission is to strengthen humanity’s will.
