A Croydon woman is bringing one of the world’s leading motivational speakers to London for a one-off multi-millionaire masterclass.

Author, speaker, coach and mum-of-two Dr Ava Eagle Brown, who turned her own life around after a tough childhood in Jamaica, has invited the US-based ‘hip hop preacher’ Dr Eric Thomas to deliver a talk in Kilburn on September 24.

Dr Thomas was born to a teenage mum in Chicago, dropped out of school at 16 and found himself homeless and eating from dustbins. Now he coaches top sides in America, including the NFL and NBA and his high-energy talks have made him a Youtube star, with more than 50 million views.

Speaking from his office in Detroit, he said: “I promise you, if you come to this event, you will re-write your history and make the rest of your life the best of your life.”

The Multi-Millionaire Masterclass with Dr Eric Thomas at Urban Life 2016 takes place at Ruach City Church in Kilburn High Road on September 24. Go to ericthomaslondon.uk
