The College at Brockport Alums - we want to hear from you! Help our students "put together the pieces" by sharing your own experiences and expertise! Program proposals will be accepted until Monday, December 9, 2013.
We are excited to welcome back our exciting Keynote Speaker, Jonathan Sprinkles, who will be returning to Brockport this February.
Jonathan’s passion for helping people perform at their best stems from the agony that he felt when he lost his father to cancer at the age of 15. Attempting to mask the pain, he gave
into peer pressure and the low expectations that surround many African-American men. However, Jonathan’s spirit wouldn’t allow him to stay down. Refusing to settle for life’s
second best, he graduated college from the fourth-ranked marketing program in the country. At graduation, he was awarded the two highest leadership designations given to any student out of an enrollment of over 53,000.
After college, Jonathan enjoyed a thriving career as a top salesman at Dell, Inc. Jonathan was hand-picked by senior management to join an elite group of Senior Account Managers
who were responsible for acquiring new business in the fastest growing segment of the company. Because of the leadership, customer service, and team-building skills that he developed within a high-stakes sales environment, Jonathan was bestowed with the coveted title as the “Significant Achiever” among a pool of 400 of the corporation’s best sales reps.
Jonathan opted out of the fast-track in his corporate position to launch his own company and live his mission to inspire people to live bigger lives, which he has done for 10
years. His high-energy presentations on motivating yourself and others, connecting (communication/ relationships), being a Change-Maker™ (leadership), and prospering
under pressure (change) go against grain of traditional thinking that is rooted in myths that sound good but don’t work in today’s marketplace. Jonathan’s strategies are so effective, they have become favorites among corporations, government agencies, professional associations, universities, and national media outlets.
After just a few minutes with Jonathan, his quick wit and down-home style of “teaching beautiful people to act like it,” will make you feel like you’ve known him your entire life. Jonathan Sprinkles’ life is one that we can all celebrate as proof that success isn’t about where you start, but where you choose to finish!
