31 Jan Alex Sheen
Alex Sheen is the Founder of because I said I would, a social movement and non-profit dedicated to bettering humanity through promises made and kept. Sparked by the loss of his father, Alex and his organization send “promise cards” to anyone anywhere in the world at no cost. Alex is someone who truly honors commitment. He once walked over 240 miles across the entire state of Ohio in 10 days to fulfill a promise. In just two years, because I said I would has sent over 9.81 million promise cards to over 153 different countries. The promises written on these cards have made headlines around the world. His charitable projects and awareness campaigns have been featured on CNN, NPR, ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, The Today Show, The Los Angeles Times, and many other programs and media outlets.
Because I said I would.
We live in a society that often does not respect the importance of a promise. It’s too easy to say “I’ll get to it” or “tomorrow.” In many ways, we have become numb to the disappointment from broken commitments, and this numbness can enter our homes, our workplaces, our schools, our communities…
But Alex Sheen believes that every individual has the strength to become a person of their word.
Alex will deliver a keynote speech up to 60 minutes long about the importance of honoring your promises. He mixes emotion, humor, and inspiration as he tells deeply moving stories from the because I said I would movement. Alex also shares moments from his personal journey launching and building this viral social movement.
Alex expertly employs video media and visually striking imagery to keep audiences engaged throughout his keynote.
His keynote concludes with a strong call to action that connects the Promise Card to the personal lives of each audience member. Every person attending the keynote then receives 10 Promise Cards at no cost.
100% of Alex’s speaking fee goes directly to because I said I would as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. So you can both book a world-class keynote speaker and effectively donate to a high-impact nonprofit!
