Jermaine M. Davis is the son of a single mother of four children. He grew up on the west side of Chicago in the Henry Horner’s housing projects. After the unfortunate loss of six family members to violent deaths, Jermaine began studying motivational principles and success strategies and enrolled at Elmhurst College to change the direction of his life. Jermaine completed college, earning a BA in Speech Communication and continued his education to complete a MA in Speech Communication and a second Masters in Education. He began his career in corporate America as a snack food sales rep. After holding several corporate positions, he decided to honor his vocation and follow his passion of teaching individuals to communicate appropriately, competently and effectively: Jermaine became a college professor of Communication Studies.

Jermaine has been actively teaching college adults for more than 15 years, during which he received the prestigious student-nominated College Instructor of the Year Award. He has authored and co-authored 10 books in the areas of academic success, diversity, motivation, inspiration, leadership, and women’s leadership. He is currently a professor of Communication Studies at Century College and is a Doctoral Candidate studying and researching in the area of Organizational Leadership.

Jermaine delivers keynotes and workshops to thousands of people each year and has worked with hundreds of organizations across the United States and Internationally.
