LaMarqué D. Ward Sr. is an internationally acclaimed educator, speaker, author, trainer and Dream Building coach. He is a captivating leader whose charismatic speeches influence students and professionals alike. Through profound insight, LaMarqué engages his audience by reaching common ground with others.
His passion for unleashing potential in others is infectious – and he has created a guide to prove he stands behind this passion. His first book “Competing as a Lifestyle You vs. You, A Student’s Guide to Greatness” has been successfully received. Even greater success resulted from his sophomore manuscript “Dream Building for Parents” and his anti-bullying book series “Malik’s Big Dream” and “Malik The Difference Maker.” His life experiences give him a unique credibility with his audiences – and his natural talent for connecting with people from any background gives him the ability to break through to audiences during his speeches and trainings.
He is an expert in tuning into the needs of others by breaking down barriers in cultures that ordinarily hinder results. He shares his life in the form of practical wisdom that is easily translated to his audience. He does so by letting his audience know that, although his road was not easy, he did not let any barrier get in his way. He turned every barrier into a teachable moment and these experiences, coupled with his academic achievements, have propelled him to a dynamic level of insight and wisdom. He has lead successful at-risk youth efforts in Cincinnati and around the country by providing expert level leadership development and coaching for staff. He also created several student interventions that focus on social emotional learning (SEL) for students.
