Dr. Savage is the director of the Center for Leadership at the University of Mobile along with a national grass roots effort to transform America called the twelve23 movement ( Check out the link, as this movement might be something you want to be part of. Dr. Savage writes about leadership as it relates to personal, church, community, or national concerns. His goal is to provide practical content that you can put to work in your personal and professional life. His desire is that his words and the comments of others will empower us toward becoming the transformational leaders that he believes we can become and that our great nation needs. Dr. Savages journey began in his childhood home where his grandparents and parents owned and operated a small family business for 53 years. It was here that he learned the value of family, hard work, determination, stewardship, fairness, decision making, hiring, firing, and faith. The most important aspect of life that he learned was the value of the individual relationship. Dr. Savage has worked and traveled in fifteen nations on three continents primarily speaking, working with orphans, helping the poor, and leading large outreach events. He has lived in Alabama, North Carolina, Florida, and Ohio. He has directly been involved and/or spoken to engineers at NASA to company employees at Aflac; from at-risk teenagers living in America’s inner cities to gypsies in the villages of Romania; from communists leaders in the former Soviet Union to businessmen in Mexico; from executives and coaches in the National Football League to juvenile delinquents in maximum secured detention facilities; from principals and superintendents in public schools to pastors and missionaries from numerous church denominations. Overall, he has spoken to more than 1,800 audiences that consisted of hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Dr. Savage has led his own non-profit organization for almost twenty years. Most of his work has been in helping individuals use their platforms of influence to help others in need. Through these partnerships he has assisted thousands of people including the nation’s poor and the victims of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Dr. Savage’s newest book, We Forgot was released in October 2011. We Forgot deals with the things America has forgotten since 9/11.
