Since 2001, Dr. Torian Salary, The Professor of Personal Growth™, has dedicated his career to helping transform the lives that he comes in contact with. To date, he has spoken to over a quarter million college & high school students in his quest to make sure that students leave school with a greater chance of becoming a success story. When he’s not on stage inspiring his audiences, he’s with his wife and children in Atlanta hanging out with family and friends, eating nachos and watching reruns of old shows.


Award-Winning Motivational Speaker Dr. Torian Salary has been featured on TV, radio, iTunes & newspapers and is known to his audience as The Professor of Personal Growth™. He’s helped transform the lives of over half a million people across the world. As someone still in the success-seeking marathon himself, his humble, yet high energy, interactive stories and tell-it-like-it-is style is one that his audience relates to.

“His message hits home in so many ways!”

The first time on stage for The Professor of Personal Growth™ was at the tender age of 16, when he stood behind a podium inspiring nearly 3,000 people at Tulane University in New Orleans. If you ask him how he did it, he couldn’t tell you. However, aside from the nervous sweating, buckling knees and voice cracking, he knew he wanted to be in a position to motivate people for the rest of his life. The rest, as they say, is history.

“I get chills every time he shares his water story!” 

Now, years later, The Professor of Personal Growth™ still travels the world in search of people with potential that need to be reminded of their purpose and power. With nearly 20 years of experience, Dr. Salary has created a habit of leaving his audience on the edge of their seats begging for more.
Blending truth and humor, his talks are powerful beyond measure and relevant to all who hear them. His ultimate goal is to help others reach their ultimate goal!
