Following the success of his semi-autobiographical motivational book; Keep On Pushing: Hot Lessons From Cool Running, Devon Harris, the motivational speaker/author and Olympic athlete of the original Jamaica Bobsled Team whose story became world-famous in the legendary Disney film Cool Runnings, announced today, the launch of Keep On Pushing and Live Your Best Life – a one day interactive personal and professional development seminar for executives, entrepreneurs, small business persons, professionals and those generally interested in personal growth and development.
The seminar will take place at the Wyndham Hotel in Kingston on Saturday March 17, 2012 and at the Montego Bay Convention Center, Rose Hall, St James on Sunday March 18, 2012. Both seminars will run from 9 am to 4 pm.
“This seminar is a natural progression of my work as a motivational speaker and author and I am especially excited to be kicking it off in my home town of Kingston where I initially learnt many of the lessons about success which has served me well throughout my life.” He said from his office in New York. Devon strongly believes that we all have the ability to push past what we thought was originally possible to achieve higher and higher levels of success and hence live our best life. “My mission is to bring this message of how everyone can keep on pushing and working for their dreams every day of their professional as well as personal lives.”
For over a decade, Devon has been in demand as a speaker to businesses, foundations, government organizations and schools and universities. His recent keynotes and workshops on themes of personal development, persistence and teamwork to such Fortune 100 companies as Microsoft, Roche Pharmaceuticals and Charles Schwab, as well as to smaller organizations, have taken Devon around the world many times. Through his Keep On Pushing Foundation, Devon is contributing time and resources to improving the lives of young students in impoverished school districts, starting with his own primary school in Kingston, the Drews Avenue Primary School.
