Xavier Hosts Mark Brown

Buenger Catholic Lecture Series | October 22, 2008


Mark Brown, an internationally-recognized presenter and winner of the World Champion of Public Speaking award, returns to Xavier University as the 2008 speaker in the annual Ann Buenger Catholic Lecture Series. This year’s event will be at Xavier’s Cintas Center on October 30 at 4:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public (reservations required 513-745-3477)
Mark Brown has dedicated his career to spreading inspirational messages to young people all over North America. With his “tell it like it is” approach, Brown challenges some of the most serious problems in our schools today. Brown is an Emmy-nominated dynamic speaker whose unique blend of insight and humor leaves his audiences entertained, uplifted, and inspired. A native of Kingston, Jamaica, he immigrated to the United States at 18 with $40 in his pocket and a dream of a better life. He never imagined he’d devote his life to helping others.
Brown will also present his acclaimed “no bullying” program to Catholic school students on October 29 and 30 to over 4,000 students at the Cintas Center. Nearly 2,600 seventh- and eighth-grade students participated last fall. Mark Brown’s work is part of the outreach program of Reader’s Digest and Catholic Digest and is in partnership with the Xavier Center for Catholic Education.
Brown’s lecture is part of the Ann Buenger Catholic Lecture Series which provides speakers each year for archdiocesan educators. For more information, please call 513-745-3477.
