Dr. Lonise Bias

Dr. Lonise Bias is an internationally known motivational speaker, trainer, certified youth and family life coach and consultant.   She’s a dynamic and compelling orator; who engages audiences with her motivational and inspirational presentations, workshops and seminars.  

As the result of the deaths of her two sons, Len and Jay Bias, Dr. Bias’s career was launched as a public speaker.  (Len Bias died due to cocaine intoxication two days after being drafted by the Boston Celtics on June 19, 1986 and Jay Bias was murdered in a drive by shooting at a local mall in 1990). 

After addressing the topics of drugs and violence for many years, Dr. Bias has turned her focus toward the needs of the entire community.  She has become a community activist, addressing topics dealing with the declining social health within schools (e.g., illegal drug and alcohol abuse, bullying, gangs and violence). She brings powerful messages of hope focused on the themes “Turning Lemons to Lemonade”, “Hope Is Not Extinct” and “Family Matters,” within our communities, homes, schools, workplaces.  She is the President of Bias Consulting LLC, the Len and Jay Bias Foundation and Bspeaks.  Bspeaks is a speaker series designed to help women, youth, family, schools and those in the workplace to navigate the hardships, stressors and challenges of daily survival. Through her life changing workshops, seminars, keynote addresses and “Power Lunches and Breakfast” meetings, she jump starts employees and staff  by giving them insight, hope and direction.

Dr. Lonise Bias is a change agent who believes that hope is not extinct, positive change can happen in our communities when we use practical grass-root methods of prevention and intervention.  The community, family, youth, women and those in the workplace are reachable, teachable, lovable and savable, but we must change our approach in adapting to their needs.  

She has delivered keynote addresses to the faith based community, public and private sectors, and national and international conferences providing prescriptive solutions to remedy the social ills of our day. Her audiences are diverse. She has addressed heads of state, including former president Bill Clinton and the White House National Office of Drug Control Policy.

A few of her clients include, but are not limited to, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Department of State, US Office of Personnel Management, Homeland Security, National Basketball Association, National Football League, NCAA Colleges, Financial Aid, and numerous middle schools, high schools, universities and  women’s organizations.

Dr. Bias has made many media appearances and is the recipient of numerous awards including, the Boston Herald Community Service Award, Presidents Cabinet Award for Distinguished Service to Humanity (from the University of Texas in Galveston), Bridging the Gap Humanitarian Award (from the University of Pennsylvania), and the Giant Steps Parent Award. In May of 1990 she was conferred an Honorary Doctorate of Education degree (from the Anna Maria College in Paxton, Ma).

The tragic deaths of her sons have forged her commitment to help reclaim our communities.  Dr. Bias is confident in the future and believes the “best is yet to come!” To book youth and adversity speaker, Lonise Bias call Executive Speakers Bureau 800-754-9404.
