"I had the pleasure to work with Curtis while I was developing the Manager Development Program. Curtis was selected to deliver the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion content advancing a critical segment of the university's core values. This was an inaugural program and every component was carefully and deliberately woven together using internal and external expertise. Curtis's session on the Chaos of Diversity and Inclusion was powerful and resonated with the staff. He challenged them to think and act differently. Curtis's ability to story tell is well balanced with research and practical content. His presentations were the highest rated segment of the series."

"Engaging, Thought-Provoking and Awe-Inspiring are just a few words/phrases that come to mind in thinking about how Curtis Hill empowered our N4A Family during our 46th Annual National Convention. Curtis' energy is infectious, and his delivery is one of the best I have ever experienced within a virtual climate. Our members are still raving about his presentation, and I give him my highest recommendation."

ABOUT CURTIS HILL

Growing up in Chicago, Curtis easily drifted into a life of violence and crime and quickly rose to become one of the city’s most recognizable and notorious gang members. While dealing drugs earned him a six-figure per month bankroll, it cost him everything when he witnessed the cold-blooded murder of his best friend and came face-to-face with the immense suffering it caused in his community.

 That’s when Curtis turned to education to springboard his street smarts into solid business acumen. After earning four degrees, including a Master of Arts in Teaching, an Educational Specialist in Administration and Supervision, and a Black Belt in Six Sigma, Curtis now travels the globe helping businesses and associations manage the chaos of people, practices, and profits. His unique way of communicating complex issues like race and division with humor and humanity keeps audiences both laughing and learning. 

Whether from a virtual or physical stage, Curtis delivers messages for leaders, sales professionals, service providers, and business professionals with high energy, purposeful passion, and solid strategies that create long-lasting and significant difference in their personal and professional lives. Want to learn how you can integrate more diversity, equity, and strong, effective business skills into your organization? Contact Curtis today!

CURTIS HILL PROGRAMS & TOPICS

Managing The Chaos Of Leadership: Taking The Lead And Keeping It

Leadership is a process by which the leader is transformed so that he/she can help transform the lives of others. In order to be an effective leader, one must develop the attitude of a leader. Whether your employees have a formal title of a leader or have not moved into that position yet, anyone can benefit from this presentation and become the best leader possible. Great leaders understand how to inspire everyone around them – their friends, family and associates, strive for excellence regardless to their circumstances – because they are inspired themselves. Curtis’ presentation is powerful, funny and compelling. And it will create the desire in your students to make a difference in the lives of the people around them.

Participants will:

  • Discover 5 surprising secrets to becoming a great leader.
  • Find out how to inspire and motivate those around you.
  • Recognize how they can impact your corporate culture and the world around you.

Managing The Chaos Of Diversity, Equity And Inclusion: Building An Inclusive Team

Let’s face it, our world is changing and our organization should reflect those changes. Being aware of those around you and not only respecting them but having a true appreciation for them and their differences will create the kind of inclusive cultures that is needed to drive productivity. Managing The Chaos Of Diversity And Inclusion will tear down the gender, social, and racial preferences that divide us and create an attitude of appreciation for others and ourselves. If you want to change the completion of your organization and discover the intersectionality that lies within, this is the presentation for you.

Participants will:

  • Develop insights and understanding of their own story and how it shapes their recruitment and hiring process.
  • Learn how to build an inclusive culture and increase the bottom line.
  • Be able to discuss interpersonal differences in a non-threatening environment, to increase inclusion and intersectionality.
  • Be able to understand the underlying hidden messages that increase tension, reduces productivity and decreases retention.

Managing The Chaos Of Identify Theft: Building A Brand Worth Stealing

If your identity is not worth stealing you need a new one. In today’s highly completive workplace building a brand that cannot be stolen is a thing of the past. If possible you want to be known for what it is you do, but you also want to be reproduced in the hearts and minds of those you service. For that to be possible, you must be willing to allow parts of your identity to be stolen. Not your business plan but your essence, your word, phrases and/or symbols. If you want to build your corporate identity and allow it to go home with your consumers this is the program for you.

Participants will:

  • Learn how to build a corporate face.
  • Learn how to allow their identity to shine in any environment.
  • Learn how to build chunks in order to be stolen.

Hidden In Plain Site: Understanding The Color Of R.A.I.N

Let’s face it, our world is changing, and our organizations reflect this diversity. However, to truly appreciate our new world, we must delve deep into our own biases. Contrary to popular belief, it is not the extreme “Racial Hate Groups” tearing away at the fabric of our country. We know their agendas, it is the everyday person who is unaware of their biases that is doing more harm than them. To some rain has no color; to others yellow is the color of rain; while to many rain is just plain wet. Like people, rain comes in many sizes, shapes, and colors. Understanding the Color of R.A.I.N. (Race, Association, Isms, and Norms) will tear down the gender, social, racial, and preference biases that divide us and give us an attitude of appreciations for ourselves and others. If you want to change the completion of your organization, this is the presentation for you.

Your Organization will:

  • Learn the Platinum Rule
  • Be able to discuss interpersonal differences in a non-threatening environment.
  • Learn what their own biases are and how to recognize them.
