Few individuals impact the day-to-day management of organizations and institutions as Dennis Kimbro. A tireless educator, author, and B-school professor, Dr. Kimbro is universally characterized as one of the most insightful and scholarly writers in the field today.
As a lecturer and researcher in the field of management, entrepreneurship and human potential, he encourages his readers to look within to extract the keys that underlie all accomplishment. He received his B.A. and M.A. degrees from the University of Oklahoma, and a doctorate from Northwestern University where he studied wealth and poverty among underdeveloped countries.
With his course work behind him, Dr. Dennis Kimbro combed the country interviewing scores of America’s most notable achievers. Eventually his inquisition led to the question: How can impoverished black Americans pull themselves out of poverty and reach their full potential?
To broaden and enhance the scope of the project, Dr. Kimbro studied the methodology of Napoleon Hill, author of the phenomenal best seller Think and Grow Rich. Using Think and Grow Rich as a reference, Dr. Dennis Kimbro decided to do what Hill had done in the 1930’s. He developed a survey to use among high achieving black Americans.
Two years later, he learned from the foundation bearing Hill’s name that, Hill himself, had drafted a book in 1970 that explored the identical question. Moreover, Hill had written nearly one hundred pages on the subject, which turned out to be his last.
After a personal meeting with W. Clement Stone, president of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, Dr. Kimbro was commissioned to update and completeHill’s original manuscript. Think and Grow Rich: A Black Choice, the results of Dr. Dennis Kimbro’s and Hill’s efforts, distills the secrets of success contained in the lives of peak performing men and women, and reveals how readers can utilize these keys to make their dreams come true.
Dennis is married and the father of three daughters, Kelli, Kimberli, and MacKenzie. His honors include various awards bestowed by the business community as well as the Dale Carnegie “Personal Achievement” award. He is the past Director of the Center of Entrepreneurship at Clark Atlanta University. In 1996, he served as one of eight national judges for the prestigious Ernst & Young USA Today Entrepreneur of the Year held in Palm Springs, California.
Dr. Dennis Kimbro’s writings have influenced readers from the streets of Melbourne, Australia, to Johannesburg, South Africa, to Seoul, South Korea. From the boardrooms of General Motors, Walt Disney, Frito-Lay, and Wells Fargo to name a few. He has addressed the Notre Dame ‘Fighting Irish’ football team as well as the Kansas City Royals Baseball team.
He has appeared on the Today Show, Larry King, CNN, and has been featured on the pages of the Success! magazine, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and USA Today on numerous occasions sharing the keys of success and achievement. One of Dennis Kimbro’s highest honors occurred when he was requested to keynote Grambling State University’s Coach Eddie Robinson’s farewell tribute.
As the author of “Daily Motivations for African American Success” and the highly acclaimed “What Makes the Great Great: Strategies for Extraordinary Achievement,” his fourth book, “What Keeps Me Standing: A Black Grandmother’s Guide to Peace, Hope & Inspiration” (Doubleday), was released Spring, 2003.
