Albert Mensah        

Renowned Motivational Speaker & Author

Originally from the African nation of Ghana, Albert Mensah has emerged to become an internationally-recognized motivational speaker, corporate consultant and coach. While serving top companies throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, his life story — a journey from rags to riches — has inspired audiences everywhere.

Known as the “Ambassador of Opportunity," Albert is an expert in the area of change. Rather than being feared, Mensah believes change is something that should be embraced. By doing so, listeners discover how they, too, can attain new heights personally and professionally.

Particularly for companies in the midst of an organizational transformation, Albert can provide the tools and inspiration necessary to emerge successfully on the other side. Having served such leading companies as Starbucks, Microsoft, Boeing, Wells Fargo, Costco, and John Deere, he has the ability and experience to help any company through times of transition.

In addition to change, Albert is an expert in the areas of leadership, teamwork, intellectual agility, and resiliency. Believing that resilient companies are better positioned to thrive in the midst of change, he teaches employees and executives at every level how to absorb change and parlay it into momentum.

Prior to embarking on his career as a public speaker, Albert served within Fortune 500 telecommunications companies as a top salesman, in which role he regularly surpassed all sales quotas. From there, he launched a successful sporting goods store. Along with his early history, these experiences have contributed to his unique perspective and enrich the content of his presentations.

Albert is passionate about public speaking, teaching and even athletics. A Two-Time NCAA All-American Soccer Player, he was honored when his alma mater, McDaniel College, inducted Albert into the Sports Hall of Fame in 2003.

Albert is also the author of When the Drumbeat Changes, Dance a Different Dance and OK Means Opportunity Knocking. His newest books, WAKE Up to Your Potential! Discovering the Hidden Opportunities in Challenging Times and Wise Living from African Folktales: Changing Your Life Through the Wisdom of African Stories, were both published in 2015. These resources help readers clarify dreams, specify goals, and take full advantage of opportunities.

Discover how to view problems you encounter as opportunities, develop success from failure, see and seize opportunities that are all around you, and create opportunities where they don't seem to exist.
