Ray Leonard Jr. needs little introduction.
He will forever be remembered appearing with his famous father, hall of famer boxer Sugar Ray Leonard in the 1970’s iconic 7-Up commercial capturing the hearts of millions.
Ray Leonard Jr, now all-grown up, is a former two-sport division one collegiate athlete and former sports agent, credits his father’s talk with him about opportunities.
“I’ve always remembered the words from my father that remain with me today, ‘Within our dreams and aspirations, we find our opportunities,’” says Ray. “I believe that all our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”
Ray is a husband and father of four children and believes “young people need a strong sense of their strengths, abilities, interests, and values,” he says.
He has dedicated his life to helping others and as an active supporter of many causes and a youth coach and mentor, Ray brings energy, excitement and insight to any setting.
Ray is a motivational keynote speaker, radio host, actor and award-winning business executive. He is also the co-founder of Launch Team Consulting, Inc., which focuses on diversity, leadership and corporate culture training.
Additionally, Ray is also the co-owner of Universal Media Group, a media conglomerate whose corporate focus is on the implementation of celebrity-based programming, social media and interactive TV. The company is known for its cutting-edge technology in media through music, with sports and empowering the millennial generation.
As a motivational speaker, Ray has an ability to connect with his audience and instills the virtues of leadership, discipline, awareness and control in talks to various businesses, organizations and the military during his extensive travels.
Ray will release his passion project in the fall: “Ray Leonard Jr’s Life Success Playbook,” a dynamic book of heartfelt inspiration, life lessons and practical strategies to drive change for young people.
The Maryland native resides in California and is a graduate of Ohio University with a BS in Sports Management and a BA in Business Administration.
