About Tobias

           As CEO of TaiQuen Enterprises, published author and motivational speaker Tobias Q. Brown has caught the eye of colleges and universities, nationally, by delivering a high energy message that helps students realize their potential and begin performing at academic levels undreamed of.
           Mr. Brown, an expert in higher education, is author of It's Easier Than You Think! A guide to constant success, and co-author of African American Men In College.
           Tobias's message is crafted from his own painful college and life experiences. After realizing the grave of mediocrity that he waddled in was taking him nowhere fast, Tobias decided to take charge of his life.┬áThis decision coupled with the motivating principles he shares while speaking, catapulted his grade point average from a 1.2 to a 3.93 cumulative grade point average, placing him in the top 2-3 percentile of students nationally and internationally. It's with humor and excitement that Tobias shares his academic "rags to riches" story with students around the world, in efforts to show them how they too can achieve unparalleled success!
           Tobias has an empowering and motivational message for all types of students and administration, from first-year and transfer students, to students in leadership (student government and students a part of Greek life), as well as recruitment and retention strategies and practices for administration.
           Tobias is also author of the upcoming books, The College process made easy for Parents and How come nobody told me? (for students)--books that help guide both parents and students from junior year in high school throughout the first years in college. Most recently, Tobias has completed two additional books and programs from the series, It's Easier Than You Think!--catered to students in leadership and Greek student life, entitled, Student leaders creating positive change on campus and Being Greek and making a difference.
