HOST - ANDRE M. EBRON

While many are content with living a life of mediocrity, he’s on a mission to transform individuals and organizations from effectiveness to greatness. Called, equipped and trained to perform transformative work on multiple platforms, Andre Ebron operates under the belief that every human being has the potential within to express a facet of God’s personality that the earth has never seen before. As an author, speaker and entrepreneur, he is charged to help others unearth those seeds of greatness God planted within them—positioning them to awaken the seeds of purpose in others. After having created and implemented the transformation of school climate and culture within private, charter and public school districts in several markets, Ebron learned that this was so much more than a career or a job. It is his predestined road to success and purpose fulfillment.

Raised by a mother who was a United States Marine and social worker, coupled with the knowledge he obtained from mentors with pastoral and educational leadership experience, it’s no surprise that Ebron bears the heart of a servant leader. His innate ability to edify, exhort and comfort doesn’t just ring true within the four walls of the church in his ministerial role. Whether he’s serving in a social worker role, as an educator at a school or as an administrator for a corporate organization, he strategically challenges those around him to level up in business and life in general.

His heartbeat for community development and excellence in action not only led to his nomination for Administrator of the Year from the Detroit Public School Community District, but it yielded him the Legend Award from Cornerstone Christian College Preparatory School, as well as the Educational Leadership Spirit Award from Rho Sigma Foundation. In addition to awards, his work and accolades led him to be featured in multiple forms of media, including the Journal Gazette Newspaper, the Herald Republican Newspaper and the Karen Dumas Show. On the heels of his debut book, The Drawing Board, Ebron used those same principles and pillars to launch

The Drawing Board Podcast, which streams live every Tuesday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m EST.

His sophomore project, The Journey Matters: The Making of a Transformational Leader, is scheduled for release in June of 2019 and will further encourage and empower readers to tap into the leader within that may be lying dormant. His annual conference, The Drawing Board Experience, is scheduled for

June of 2020 and promises to be the nation’s premier motivational conference for leaders on every level. His message of hope and healing, transformation and motivation, leaves a mark on the hearts of people worldwide that cannot easily be erased.

Dr. Patrice S. Johnson is a visionary executive committed to educational equity and the development of emerging leaders.

Johnson started her service as the vice-mayor of Muskegon Heights, Michigan and has since continued to be a change agent in both political and educational landscapes.

As a scholar-practitioner, Johnson's doctoral research explored the impact of emergency financial management for predominately African American school districts in Michigan. This critical narrative study challenges policies that disproportionately affect communities of color and exacerbate racism.

Also, Dr. Johnson is the Executive Director of Boys Hope Girls Hope of Detroit, where she has improved programmatic efforts that contribute to student's ability to promote critical consciousness, develop social-emotional intelligence, and further social equity through service. Under her leadership, the organization is experiencing a strategic resurgence at this time in its thirty-five-year history of residential and community-based services.

Dr.Johnson is also the author of two faith-based non-fiction books.
