We live in a society that often does not respect the importance of a promise. It’s too easy to say “I’ll get to it” or “tomorrow.” In many ways, we have become numb to the disappointment from broken commitments, and this numbness can enter our homes, our workplaces, our schools, our communities…

But Alex Sheen believes that every individual has the strength to become a person of their word.

Alex will deliver a keynote speech up to 60 minutes long about the importance of honoring your promises. He mixes emotion, humor, and inspiration as he tells deeply moving stories from the because I said I would movement.

About Keynote Speaker Alex Sheen

Alex Sheen is a four-time TEDx speaker and the Founder of because I said I would, an international social movement and nonprofit dedicated to the betterment of humanity through promises made and kept.

Alex is the author of the upcoming book “because I said I would.” that is due for release in January 2019. Alex’s unique perspective on accountability, commitment and self-control developed both from his responsibilities in leading a global effort about keeping promises and his personal experience fulfilling his own promises.

Alex’s personal promises include:
• Walking 245 miles across the entire state of Ohio in under 10 days to fulfill a promise to the three Cleveland women
who were held captive for 10 years.
• Volunteering at 52 different nonprofit organizations in a single year.
• Promising children with cancer trips to Disneyland and personally delivering 100 tickets.

Very energizing session. Really compelling stuff around the power of a promise. I can’t commend both the performance he has just given and indeed the work he is doing on the philanthropic agenda enough. Absolutely fantastic. Really great response from the participants and I think it has really made them think.
