Alex Sheen Speaker Profile:

Alex Sheen’s father died of small cell lung cancer on September 4th, 2012. His father was good with his promises, so Alex titled his father’s eulogy “because I said I would” and created the promise card in his memory. Eventually, Alex would decide to resign from his corporate position in order to advance because I said I would‘s mission.

Alex Sheen now works to better of humanity through the importance of a promise in what little ways he can. It started by waking up early before going to work and handwriting letters to people thanking them for requesting promise cards. This dedication continued to develop as he began fulfilling charitable promises. These promises include getting 100 tickets to Disneyland for children with cancer and walking 245 miles across the entire state of Ohio in 10 days to raise awareness for the victims of sexual violence (a promise he made to Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight). Alex now gives speeches on behalf of because I said I would in order to fund the work of this nonprofit organization. 

Alex Sheen was born in Toledo, Ohio and was raised in Powell, Ohio. He graduated from Olentangy High School in 2003 and continued his academic career at Ohio University as a proud Bobcat where he received his B.B.A. in Marketing. In 2007, Alex moved to Lakewood, Ohio where he currently resides with his incredibly adorable dog, Kimchi.  He was a Corporate Strategy Lead at Hyland Software until March 2013.

The Importance of a Promise

Integrity and character are often defined by how someone treats their promises. Too often in life we say “I’ll get to it” or “tomorrow.” This attitude can begin to define a culture. Alex Sheen talks about the importance of a promise and its impact on humanity. Through emotionally powerful stories, he convincingly discusses how our character and integrity is determined by how we treat our commitments. Alex shares interesting, practical and actionable advice on how to become a person of your word. As a nonprofit leader, his message focuses on making promises to better yourself, your family and your community. 

Leading a Social Movement

The Life of a Promise Program
It’s not about making a better employee. It’s not about making a better manager. It’s about making a better human.

As one of the foremost expert on promises, Alex has combined research and philosophy with tactical and actionable steps to help people become more committed. This leadership workshop is interactive and thought provoking that will give individuals the necessary tools needed to be a person of their word, by learning how promises are made, kept or broken, and most importantly why.

We have created a program that builds individuals who lead by example. Our work isn’t about profit margins, products and quotas. This is a different type of experience. In this program, your team will be exposed to the ideas, concepts and actionable advice that leads to positive change through the importance of a promise. Our mission is to strengthen humanity’s will.
