A scholar in the fields of success, education, and even movie history, Roger Leslie empowers and entertains audiences with life-changing workshops, fun and fast-paced keynotes, and captivating presentations on motivation and success.
Learning to FLY®
Since writing My First Last Year (Paradise Publishing, 2015), Leslie has started a global movement to inspire others to live their own First Last Year. His FLY® workshops are a forum for introspection and creative exploration that empower participants to focus only on what matters most to them so they can achieve their dreams and leave a legacy that impacts future generations.
SUCCESS in Education
Leslie’s scholarly research empowers educators to improve their productivity and enhance independent and cooperative learning among students of all grade levels by focusing on strong character. His inservice trainings inspire school personnel to infuse their passion for life into their work so that they model the SUCCESS traits essential for reaching–and teaching–life lived to the fullest.
Everything at the Movies
A film historian who has been writing about movies since he was 14, Leslie’s massive knowledge of film has resulted in joyously entertaining keynote speeches for any group. He infuses his unique, fact-filled speeches with inside information about movies relating to any group: volunteers, business executives, and clubs and organizations of every interest.
For over four decades, Dr. Leslie–affectionately known as “the Goal Guy”–has perfected an original whole-brain approach to goal setting that enables people of all personality types and education levels to set, pursue, and achieve their grandest dreams. He teaches participants to nurture their right-brained creativity to generate ideas, then hone their left-brained organizational skills to build a plan of action that helps people immediately live the life they’ve always dreamed.
In the writing world, Leslie does it all. As a lifelong author, he has been a book reviewer for Booklist and an award-winning high school English and creative writing teacher, and librarian. Now he is a nationally award-winning writer, in-demand public speaker, editor for individual clients and publishing houses, college literature professor, and owner of his own publishing house. He uses his commitment to excellence in all facets of the writing world to share his expertise with individuals and groups of any size who love to read, aspire to write, or desire to be published.
