Keynote Speaker

Logan Taylor, Founder and CEO, Y.B.Normal?

What is your why? What is your purpose? These are questions asked by Logan Taylor to ensure his audiences are maximizing their full potential. Taylor, founder of Y.B.Normal?, has spoken to thousands of people worldwide. Y.B.Normal? is the vehicle that allows him to serve in various capacities. He currently mentors struggling youth in schools, implements curriculum and journal writing that focuses on social emotional development, and leads community projects. Before the pandemic, Taylor headed several community outreach events. One that he is particularly proud of is called “Cut the Hate and Share the Love.” This annual outreach initiative is geared toward providing haircuts, clothing and shoes, and hot meals to the homeless community and people less fortunate. Taylor has a heart for people who have a difficult time overcoming poverty. He himself is a product of low-income life, welfare and homelessness. His grandmother raised him, his father was absent, and his mother’s involvement was inconsistent most of his life. Many wonder what keeps Taylor motivated and focused — it is the love, support and motivation he receives from his three kids, extended family and local community.

Leaving an environment better than the way he found it is his goal. Currently, Taylor is working toward his bachelor’s degree in social work and plans to pursue a master’s degree as a therapist.

Dr. Martin Luther King said, “Everybody can be great because anybody can serve and I am honored to be able to do my part.” Logan Taylor’s life mantra is “Y.B.Normal? when you can be extraordinary.”
