Johnny O’Brien, Leadership Coach and Author, has a unique life story. At the age of three, Johnny was sent to live at the Milton Hershey School Orphanage, where he attracted the attention of supportive mentors and coaches. He went on to earn a full scholarship to Princeton where he majored in Psychology and currently serves as Trustee Emeritus. Following Princeton, Johnny earned a MA Degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from Johns Hopkins. In 1978, Johnny founded Renaissance Leadership – one of the first firms devoted to leadership development, with clients such as American Express, Pfizer, AT&T and Smith Barney. For 26 years, he served as CEO and coached Fortune 500 Executives on enlightened leadership and high-performance teamwork. In 2002, Johnny returned to the Milton Hershey School, where he served as President until 2009. Johnny’s remarkable full circle journey is captured in his memoir titled, Semisweet: An Orphan’s Journey Through the School the Hersheys Built. On May 17th he will share his insight with us!
