Doug Keeley, CEO and Chief Storyteller of The Mark of a Leader, is one of North America’s leading communicators, a serial entrepreneur, and a self-professed “leadership junkie”.
Doug started the first of several communications businesses in 1978, and quickly became a pioneer in the marketing and communications industry, travelling the globe working with hundreds of Fortune 500 corporations and executives.
In 2004, he created The Mark of a Leader, a revolutionary program designed to inspire new thinking in the workforce about leadership and corporate culture, and to provide a tool to make any conference unforgettable. Based on a powerful concept called Five Level Leadership, the programme uses incredible video stories to share insights into the success of many of the world’s greatest leaders and brands and show how their leadership principles can be applied to business today.
The programme uses a live storyteller and a library of incredible video and music stories to create an unforgettable experience and drive behavioural change. The stories show how many of the world’s greatest people, companies, and ideas have changed the world, and then shows audiences how they can model that behaviour to perform better themselves.
The Mark of a Leader has been used repeatedly by companies like ADP, Bank of America, Coca-Cola, Disney, Frito-Lay, General Mills, HP, Microsoft, Pepsi-QTG, RBC, Scotiabank, Starbucks, TD Bank, Universal Studios, Xerox, and many other leading corporations, associations, and schools. The concept fits brilliantly into events from small management retreats to huge global sales conferences, “all employee” meetings, customer events, product launches, association meetings, and even school programmes.
While the core message is leadership, we select and focus the stories for any programme to your key messages – Change, Innovation, Customer Service, Teamwork, Communication, Recognition, etc.
Doug has written a book of inspiring stories, authored many magazine features and columns, appeared as a subject expert in several books on creativity and corporate culture, and been interviewed many times on radio and television on the subjects of leadership and innovation. He is also an inductee in the Meetings & Incentive Travel Hall of Fame.Contact us to find out more See all speakers
