Black Professionals Month Honorary Chairman Dennis P. Kimbro, Ph.D. will give the opening keynote address to kick-off Black Professionals Month.
Few individuals impact the day-to-day management of organizations and institutions as Dennis Kimbro. A tireless educator, best-selling author, and Business school professor, Dr. Kimbro is universally characterized as an authority on leadership, wealth, and success. As one of today’s top business speakers, he has documented and shared his principles and insight on peak performance with thousands of followers around the globe. As a lecturer and researcher in the field of management, entrepreneurship and human potential, Dr. Kimbro encourages his readers to look within to extract the keys that underlie all accomplishment. He received his B.A. degree from the University of Oklahoma, and a M.A. and doctorate from Northwestern University where he studied wealth and poverty among underdeveloped countries. With his course work behind him, Dr. Kimbro combed the country interviewing scores of America’s most notable achievers. Eventually his inquisition led to the question: How can impoverished Black Americans pull themselves out of their poverty and reach their full potential?
