Colleges and universities thrive on inspiration. They are often tasked with inspiring staff, students, and alumni.
I asked April Holmes — our Vice President of Associations and Colleges; who are her top recommendations for colleges and universities, and why? She provided names and personal explanations as to why you should want to book them for your next event:
#1. Stephen Young
Not long ago, Stephen Young visited our Eagles Talent office. It was a privilege to witness his presentation, and April Harris felt the strongest connection with him. She goes on to say: “I LOVED him, because when he talked, I was completely tuned in! His message was so inspiring, I actually took off my glasses to listen! He speaks on diversity in a way that makes you want to no only retain it–but use it!” Young deals with micro-messaging aka, the little things that people say and do to make people feel excluded. His messages are delivered with such a clever creative analogies.
#2. Capitol Steps
This troupe of congressional staffers turned comedians, is a fan favorite! April recommends them to both faculty and students! With all the political tension circulating our nation, this talented group of entertainers brings priceless levity to every campus!
#3. Jason Young
Jason focuses on leadership and how to get along in the workplace. April often recommends him to staff at colleges and universities because his primary message has to do with learning from a human resource perspective.
#4. Olympia LePoint
Olympia is known for being an award winning rocket scientist, author, and TV personality. Her remarkable story is reason enough for April to confidently recommend her to clients. April said, “teacher’s love her, for her motivational advice, and inspirational story of overcoming adversity.”
