Become Dream Declare Commit succeed


"Every member in your organization or student in your institution deserves to discover and experience the purpose-centered life - people show up better when they live in purpose."

There are so many good, caring, and hardworking people suffering from mental-illness and the lackluster day-to-day simply because every second of their life goes unfulfilled. There is research that shows that the Purpose-centered Life can not only improve the quality of life, but ameliorate chronic disease. Purpose is Powerful and incredibly Necessary.

My fun and effective intrapersonal development curriculum can help you, your team, your organization, or your student-based group discover their why, and put them on the fast track to helping others and living their best life through the Purpose-centered Life.

DEI TRaining -UNCONSCIOUS BIAS "What inspires Behavior"?

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion training is often ineffective because it targets, shames & blames participants. When people feel attacked, growth is impossible. What if DEI training was actually inclusive? What if you were encouraged to be curious and find the humor in the human experience? What if learning was fun and effective? Unconscious Bias is inclusive and gets to the core of what inspires Legacy, Culture & Behavior in route to truly understanding how DEI can improve People, Culture & Performance.

The black american experience

The Black American Experience is a fascinating narrative. However, Black history presentations often feel routine and predictable. Marv's goal is to commemorate the black experience with a fun, fresh and insightful approach by exploring what inspires Black culture, Black legacy, and Black behavior. Marv's honest and captivating presentation works to accentuate the beauty of the Black experience in America from 1619 till now and calls attention to the influence of Black people on American history, politics, and pop-culture. Whether in a college setting or a corporate setting, Marv's take on the Black American narrative provides inclusion educational experience.

“The 2nd Annual W.M. Trotter Lecture’s theme was Dream, Declare, Commit and Succeed, and Marv Fox, Jr. helped the audience to imagine just that, as he encouraged those in attendance to view success as human. Marv did a wonderful job of incorporating the current issues and climate of the University of Michigan Trotter Multicultural Center into his speech; he also made mention of the 2016 MLK Symposium theme #WhoWillBeNext, which was spectacular. It was evident that Fox was fully aware of his audience!” -Jessica Thompson, U of M Trotter Multicultural Center Program Manager

I honestly needed that talk so badly. I have been asking myself, "what am I even doing" and "what is my life right now"; for the past few days. Marv's talk reassured me of exactly what I already know. Purpose supersedes insecurity and that it takes intentional work to keep believing that. He gave some good ways to work at it and keep at it. Overall, I was so happy he talked about being on "purpose"; which answer the questions that I had been asking myself all through training! - Grand Valley State University Student

Our large group was totally engaged in Marv’s stimulating presentation. The way in which Marv engages a crowd is unlike anything I have ever seen. I looked around the room and saw everyone completely locked in. His ability to teach is incredible and he's exceptional at making something as complicated at purpose easy to understand. His stories made it real and his humor made us laugh. Finding speakers who can entertain, engage, and inspire adults is rare...Marv is rare. If you have the opportunity to inspire the people you work with and for, you have to get Marv. - Karen Church, CEO of Elga Credit Union

Marv, presented an exceptional presentation to our nurses as of celebration of Perianesthesia nurses week. The title of the presentation was very attractive “who is your hero”. The presentation was enlightening and gave us the challenge to live life intentionally. His presentation gave us a sense of purpose and made us think about how we can change our thoughts to become the more positive leaders and embrace our calling. I think about Marv’s presentation every day before I start my work and dwell on the thought to live life intentionally and purposefully. -Liz Ropes RN, BSN, LEO Adjunct Lecturer Undergraduate Studies Program

Thank you so much for coming to speak with and inspire the students at HFC. Your presentation was great and really got the students thinking about their purpose.

Hopefully, we will have an opportunity to bring you on campus again in the near future. -Mandy Earl, Student Activities Associate, Henry Ford College
