5 Programs By This Presenter

The purpose of this keynote/breakout is for participants to explore what unites them as opposed to what divides them. We live in a society that is becoming increasingly polarized but even in our darkest moments, there are areas where we can all shine. Participants will learn how to have difficult conversations, how to challenge implicit biases, and how to build a community where differences are not just tolerated but celebrated!

Why are potential customers not buying your product, especially if you know it is a superior product? It could come down to an issue of trust. The goal of this keynote/breakout is to explore the reasons why your company may not be the preferred brand for a targeted customer group and create strategies to counter that challenge. If you believe that you have a superior product to offer and it’s not moving the way you prefer, the issue is possibly not the product. The issue could be the narrative created by customers about your company. Change the narrative, change the results!

This keynote explores the importance of achieving true respect for cultural diversity in a school or corporation. Participants will probe deeply into the meaning of cultural biases and use that understanding as a springboard to developing an ongoing dialogue on the importance of diversity. By acknowledging their truths as it relates to experiences of racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, and more, participants will feel empowered to carry the dialogue back to their colleagues and beyond.

This intense presentation allows participants to tap into their inner potential in order for them to live their dreams. The four points of the G.R.O.W. acronym: Give, Receive, Overcome and Win for the basis of moving from a life of mediocrity to a life of greatness!

This keynote highlights the ability youth have to create change in their own lives and the lives of others. Participants build their cultural selfconfidence and respect for other cultural, religious, and racial groups through critical analysis of culture through the spoken word and positive hip-hop. This leads participants to understand the root causes of misconceptions that exist across different groups. It challenges cultural paradigms in an effort to create greater appreciation for differences. Students emerge from this high energy presentation empowered to not only make a change in their own lives but in their communities and throughout the globe.

“One student commented, “This speaker was unbelievable. His message of how to get accurate, unbiased opinion on current events is a huge benefit to any leader that wants to have an informed opinion. It is important for any leader to have an informed opinion if they want to lead knowledgeably.” When students were given the opportunity to share about the component of the conference that was most memorable, a significant number of them wrote about their leadership workshop. Thank you again for facilitating such a memorable experience for our students and for your continued support of our program.”
