About LaKeith Woods | Chief Associate

Lakeith was born in Mound Bayou, Mississippi in 1975, the only all African American City in the USA (aka) as Chocolate City, and has lived in St. Louis since the age of 18 months.  He attended local schools until at the age of 13.  He went on to attend St. Johns Military School in Salina, Kansas, and after finishing there, he returned home to St. Louis.  Unfortunately, after making a poor choice, he went to jail sentenced as “not guilty of the crime but by association,” as told to him  by the sentencing judge.  He shares his story so compellingly to warn youths of the dangers of making bad choices and the price it can cost over a life time.  His mission is to help young people understand that even in the darkest time he encourages them to look beyond their current situations and reach to better themselves.  His hope is to make them think about their behavior and make positive changes to stop the pipeline from high school to prison.

As a top associate of PWA, his dedication is to use his life’s lessons to help youths remove the negativity, replacing it with positivity, by making good choices for a better life.  He went on to attend Rankin Technical College seeking a degree in auto body repair, which he does when he’s not writing his next book in the Cornerstone Series collections.  His next book, Locks, is in the making and should be in stores soon.  LaKeith works alongside his mother Pat Woods on many of her endeavors, which also includes International trade in the Caribbean Islands.  His travels consist of International travels to promote his book covering the east coast areas, such as Boston, Washington, D.C., New York city, Miami, Mexico, The Grand Bahamas, The Cayman Islands, Jamaica and many other places.  He currently owns Woods Publications, where he assists other young artists in their quest for embracing the arts.

LaKeith has done book signings at Barnes and Noble, and his book is currently selling in bookstores in London, in the UK and in Canada.  He has also spoken in public forums at George Town University.  He has worked from a young age with his mother, side by side, with his latest venture at Fresno’s diner as a chef.

Now together, they come to you as a team to encourage and assist in helping your group change their lives using motivational speaking as a platform.  This team comes to the stage explaining in real terms the obstacles that are faced to become a success, providing the much needed information that’s not usually in the text books of most major universities, from real life examples, using story telling methods to bring their message home.
