Business Vigilance, Leadership, & Marketing Keynote Speaker & Author
Len Herstein knows the danger of complacency. He just wishes he had known earlier.
Now, as the author of Be Vigilant! Strategies to Stop Complacency, Improve Performance, and Safeguard Success. Your Business and Relationships Depend on It, he’s on a mission to empower organizations and individuals to safeguard the success they’ve worked so hard to achieve.
Len has a 30+ year history in business, marketing, and entrepreneurism. Before founding ManageCamp Inc and producing 19 annual iterations of the world-acclaimed Brand ManageCamp marketing conference, Len worked in brand marketing and innovation for Coca-Cola, The Campbell Soup Company, and Nabisco.
In 2015, Len answered a higher calling to public service when he became a Reserve Sheriff’s Deputy with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office in Colorado.
In this volunteer position, he works up to 850 hours a year as a State-certified peace officer on the patrol team – for free. Inspired to make a positive contribution to the safety and well-being of the citizens of Douglas County, Len works to be part of the solution of creating better relationships between police and the community.
It wasn’t long before Len realized he was learning valuable lessons through his law enforcement training that could be applied directly back to his business. The most important lesson, and one of the very first he learned, was the concept that complacency kills and vigilance saves.
Now Len has developed actionable strategies to help business leaders stop complacency, improve performance, and safeguard success through vigilance.
Drawing on his past role as a client-side brand marketer as well as his vast experience in planning and producing successful conferences (while working with some of the best speakers in the world), Len brings the principles of Be Vigilant! to life on stage to deliver transformational, entertaining, inspiring, and actionable performances, filled with engaging stories, that will amaze your audience and gives them the tools they need to recognize complacency in their business and in their life and fight it with vigilance every day.
Len received both his BS and his MBA in Marketing from Cornell University. A fan of The Leicester City Foxes of the English Premier League, The Denver Broncos, and poker, Len lives in Colorado with his wife, two daughters, and their Australian shepherd.
