Morris Morrison has a background and life story that sounds like a script that was written in Hollywood. After being orphaned as a child, not once... but twice, Morris was faced with overcoming many unique circumstances in life.
He has had the unique opportunity to stare directly into the face of the toughest adversities that life can throw at a person. Through his journey, Morris was privileged to receive early lessons in life that forced him to understand the need to be resilient and the importance of proactively reinventing ourselves.
After being on his own as an early teen, Morris was able to remain motivated & engaged by becoming involved with many opportunities that enhanced his self-awareness. He received his Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Fairmont State College and his Masters Degree in Business from West Virginia University. Prior to starting his own company, Morris was exposed to a vast amount of developmental opportunities in his roles with large corporations such as Equitable Resources, BB&T Bank, and Pfizer, the world’s largest pharmaceutical company. In addition, he has also participated in a vast array of national leadership ventures.
Morris has nearly seen and done it all. This former Collegiate Basketball Player, Collegiate Student Body President, Homecoming King, and President of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., has a story that is so inspiring that he has quickly become one of the most sought-after motivational speakers on both the college and business circuit.
As the current owner of The Morris Morrison Development Group, and proud husband to the lovely Lisa Morrison, Morris has a client base that includes many large corporations and higher education entities. His motivational & leadership development programs shed light on the critical areas of personal and organizational leadership development by challenging individuals to commit to “LEAD-Ur-SHIP” and hold themselves accountable for their individual growth and development.
