About

Lorraine Monroe doesn't take no for an answer... at least not easily. In a funny, touching, and motivational presentation, Lorraine Monroe explains how to persevere despite setbacks, adversity, and even hostility. She is passionate, funny and honest. Lorraine will motivate you and your team to learn ideas for leading, busting bureaucracy and clearing out the dead wood in your organization.

Lorraine Monroe is a nationally recognized leader. In 1991, she opened the Frederick Douglass Academy, an experimental public high school on Harlem designed to break the rules: It would graduate kids and send them to college. Sure enough, test scores at the Academy quickly shot to among the top in all of New York City. And among the first graduating class, 96% of the students went on to college. While Lorraine Monroe speaks about her experience as a leader in education, the message will inspire everyone who has to lead, motivate and inspire people
