Growing up in a single parent home with a father that inspired perseverance and fairness, Marques Ogden learned how to define his values and set goals. Ogden attended Howard University from 1998-2002 where he played Division I football. He then followed his dream and his brother Jonathan’s footsteps, eventually getting drafted into the NFL in 2003. Overall, he played for 5 years as an offensive lineman with the Titans, Bills, Ravens, and Jaguars. Even during the offseason, Ogden helped train football players in Europe, both physically and mentally.

Marques provides an array of coaching such as; executive coaching, corporate coaching, and transition coaching. He even provides brand building services.
The first thing I learned is that you have one chance to make a great first impression. Meaning if you’re just hired on a job, you better know everything there is to know about that position before you walk in. if you’re making mistakes and you’re new in the company you are going to be out the door.
