Motivational Speaker and Performance Coach Les McKay is more than a multiple award-winning Sales, Sales Training and Business Development Executive in the pharmaceutical industry; his diverse background as an educator, coach and top martial arts instructor has given him a unique perspective on the skills needed for success.

Les earned a degree from Hampton University in Education while balancing a successful college football career as a member of Hampton University’s Football Team. As a teacher and high profile coach with Norfolk Public Schools, he used his personal experiences to inspire the youth and student athletes he mentored, focusing on accountability, attitude and setting short and long term goals.

He believes that the key formula to success and overcoming obstacles in life is one’s commitment to:

  • Family
  • Faith
  • Passion
  • Laughter

Les uses real-world facts, personal testimonies, and humor to captivate and engage his audiences.

Additionally, Les is an accomplished Hapkido martial artist with a 3rd degree black belt in both Jin Jung Kwan and Shin Moo.
