Alex Sheen

Founder of Because I Said I Would

Alex Sheen is a four-time TEDx speaker and the Founder of “ because I said I would”, an international social movement and nonprofit dedicated to the betterment of humanity through promises made and kept. Sparked by a tragedy in his life, Alex created a concept called the Promise Card and began mailing cards to anyone who requested them at no cost. Since 2012, over 9.81 MILLION Promise Cards have been distributed to over 153 countries. In 2013, Alex left his Corporate Strategy Lead position at a leading software company to dedicate himself entirely to the nonprofit. Alex is the author of the upcoming book “because I said I would.” that was released in January 2019. Alex’s unique perspective on accountability, commitment, and self-control developed both from his responsibilities in leading a global effort about keeping promises and his personal experience fulfilling his own promises. Alex’s work has been featured on CNN, ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, TODAY Show, Good Morning America, NPR, Fox News, Los Angeles Times, CBS Nightly News and many other programs. He has been featured on the cover of Spirit Magazine and honored as a Steve Harvey “Harvey’s Hero”.
