LeRoy Thompson, MBA

Strategic Thought Leadership Speaker, Facilitator, & Trainer

A Speaker With A Message That Always Hits Home

There are plenty of motivational speakers out there but there are precious few MOTIVATING speakers! You definitely want someone engaging who can capture the hearts and minds of your audience, right?  But when you also have a speaker whose energy, empathy, and experience ignites people into action, well then that’s an event to remember. LeRoy Thompson is exactly that MOTIVATING speaker everyone is looking for.

He gets rave reviews across the range of topics that he speaks on and is able to integrate his content and experience to meet the specific needs of your audience. This is a drastic departure from your typical keynoter whose stock presentation may or may not hit home.

LeRoy’s Topics And Expertise

LeRoy Thompson jokes that he is described by those who have engaged him as “the nation’s thought leader in the field of thought leadership”! That’s because of his background as a trusted adviser to CEOs, Executive Directors, Boards, and even plant managers. His diverse expertise includes engagements for clients in the private, public and non-profit sectors. He shows them how to develop thought leadership at all levels of their organizations. Given the comprehensive nature of the results he has produced for these clients, he is asked to speak on a number of key topics:

LeRoy’s Top Three Signature Presentations

1. “Passion For The Mission” The Power Of Inclusiveness

The reason the best decisions, programs, projects and plans often end up poorly implemented is the lack of inclusion at the critical inflection points in your organization. LeRoy outlines practical approaches for creating a productive workplace culture that leverages the skills and commitment of its people.

2. “We’ve Made Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Way Too Hard!” The Neurobiology Of Bias

Without being able to generate meaningful dialogue, DEI efforts don’t add much value. Normalizing the conversation around what we need to do to become a more effective organization depends on understanding that bias does not make you a “bad person”. LeRoy shares the keys to creating and maintaining an open and inviting approach to dealing with bias.

3. “You Get What You Measure” Getting A DEI ROI

The potential downfall of every organizational initiative is not knowing that success looks like. As with any change management effort, measuring the impact of your diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts is the key to success. This is the most important form of thought leadership and LeRoy will provide you with insight, techniques, and tools to get a real return on your DEI investment.
