Young Activist Impresses Trump

-A +A

40,000 people came to The Learning Annex in Atlanta recently to be inspired and motivated about success. Donald Trump, real estate legend and author of the book The Art of the Deal, gave the keynote address at the Real Estate and Wealth Expo.

Trump came to town to urge the attendees to “love what you do�, and to “never, ever quit� pursuing your dreams. Just minutes into his presentation, Trump noticed Orrin Hudson, an African American community leader and motivational speaker, sitting enthusiastically in the front row and invited Hudson to join him onstage.

Trump then asked Hudson if he knew “The Donald� story of success. Since Hudson has made a career out of speaking to motivate and inspire, he was able to recite effortlessly the major events in Trump’s rise to real estate tycoon. Hudson’s excitement and passion delighted Trump and had the audience enthralled.

Trump is known for his abrupt and even caustic management style. Yet after the presentation, Trump not only asked for Hudson’s card, but he also told Hudson that he would call him be a part of Hudson’s non-profit organization.

In addition to traveling the country as a professional speaker, Orrin Hudson is also founder and executive director of Be Someone - a non-profit organization that shows inner city youngsters how to succeed in life by using the rules and strategies of chess as a teaching tool.

“The greatest skill you can have is the ability to make good decisions,� Hudson said. “By teaching these kids how every move in chess relates to a life decision, I help them turn their lives around!"
