Len Merson

Len Merson

Len Merson is the Founder/CEO of Chaos Over, Inc. His career began in sales and marketing consulting. Invariably, the companies that contracted for his services were so disorganized that it was hard to see how they attained, and maintained, the success they had achieved. This mismanagement of information was, for the most part, under the surface. Merson taught them methods to become far more organized. Carefully following a paradigm that he had formulated, each company's sales, revenue, productivity and profit "shot up like a rocket!" Merson also began to see how powerful the correlation was between organization and the self-esteem of those involved. It was from this actualization that the Chaos Over Program was born in July of 1973.

Merson is an awarded member of the National Speakers Association. He is an international lecturer and corporate trainer and consultant, published author as well as an expert in the field of managing information flow and organization. He has trained over 77,000 people over the past thirty-six years in corporations, the military and governments in Israel, Canada, Brazil, Japan, Australia and the U.S. in mastering people's careers and recapturing their lives.

Len is acutely concerned with assisting children in need. He conducts the MAGNIFICENT ME self-esteem workshops in public, private and parochial schools as well as juvenile homes and teenage abuse shelters, all across the country. To date, over 26,000 young people have participated in his pro-bono sessions. In this manner, he believes that he contributes back into the community. Len is a devoted father to Jessica, father-in-law to Paul and grandfather to his beloved grandchildren Jordan Paul, Caleb Alika, Chloe Lauren, Alexis Malia, and a "Fifth" blessing on the way.
