Travis left college after his first semester, before the school had the chance to kick him out. In his keynote, Hazing: The Fallout, Travis tells his story of the pain and hidden harm caused by his hazing experiences. Travis went on to complete his college career at another institution, and today is the Associate Dean of Students at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.

Corey Ciocchetti Corey Ciocchetti is an Associate Professor of Business Ethics and Legal Studies in the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver. His passion lies in speaking with students on campuses and within their communities about  “authentic success” and living an ethical life. Corey’s keynotes have a common theme – they encourage and motivate audiences to take a step back and reevaluate their goals. He brings the focus back on chasing after the essentials to any fulfilling life, such as a solid character, strong personal relationships and a sense of contentment. These “real rabbits” are compared and contrasted to worldly types of success such as excessive wealth, popularity, and prestige. Audiences leave with a better sense of what it takes to develop character, set priorities and gain a big-picture perspective. Corey is an excellent choice for professionally-oriented student groups, fraternity and sorority leaders, honor student programs, emerging leaders symposiums, graduate schools and more.

Lauren Cook Ask Lauren and she will tell you, happiness isn’t something to strive for, it’s something to practice each and every day. Lauren’s natural positivity shines with any audience. She is easily relatable and is sure to make audiences laugh and cry throughout her program. Lauren mixes professionalism with emotional intelligence to leave students with a profound message of taking control of their own happiness – now. Lauren’s journey into understanding and spreading happiness began when she read Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project, which left her motivated and invigorated. She wrote to Gretchen and asked if she wanted to write a teen edition of The Happiness Project with Lauren. It wasn’t long before she heard back from Gretchen and she politely declined the offer. So Lauren thought, “That’s okay. I’ll write my own book; just because she told me “no” doesn’t mean that I had to tell myself that.” She began her journey interviewing hundreds of middle school, high school, and college students asking them, “What is it that actually makes you happy?” a question she so rarely heard asked. What she found was enlightening. The Millennial Generation is more optimistic, philanthropically minded, and internationally focused than any other generation. Unfortunately, we’re also guilty of wishing our lives away. If you think you’ll be happy when your life is finally perfect—when you get into your dream school, you’re making a six-figure salary and you have the golden retriever to match, you’ll likely go a whole lifetime looking for something that doesn’t exist. Happiness is about loving an imperfect life for all of its little splendors and failures. Lauren’s...

Saul Flores Saul Flores walked 5,328 miles through ten countries to document how grueling and dangerous the journey of immigrants to the United States can be and to raise money for an elementary school in Atencingo, Mexico. The story of his journey, accompanied by a series of photographs, capture the essence of the people, communities, and cultures he encountered along the way. After this life-changing experience, Saul now wants to inspire students to make a positive impact on the world by speaking about the value of servant leadership, philanthropy, and service-learning. Keynotes Think Big The Walk of Immigrants From Where I Stand Think Big In this program, Saul shares his story of helping others in need to emphasize the value of servant leadership, and how to give back to different communities through service-learning initiatives and humanitarian projects. On a service-learning spring break trip to his mother’s hometown, Saul discovered a withering cinderblock elementary school, flowered by beautiful fields of sugarcane. Struck by the charm and contrastingly severe poverty of the six-classroom building, Saul decided to act. He found the students living in aluminum shanties and sleeping on the floor, lacking motivation for school. Determined to help make a difference in the lives of the children, and armed with the knowledge that education provides youth a solid foundation, Saul made it his mission to raise funds to reconstruct their school.

Bobby Gordon

Bobby Gordon

Bobby Gordon Whether we choose to admit it or not, alcohol and drugs are on campus and the exposure to them often leads to substance abuse and can be a detrimental part of the college experience. Only through honest and open conversation can we reach students and give them the information they need to make better, informed decisions. Bobby’s non-judgmental approach focuses on providing factual information combined with real-world scenarios relating to the experience of today’s college student. Bobby answers the questions you were too afraid to ask with expertise and appropriate humor, engaging audiences in “real talk” about alcohol, drugs and the associated risks and consequences. Keynotes Real Talk and the Right Mix | Alcohol & Drugs Real Talk and the Right Mix: Alcohol & Drugs College alcohol and drug abuse is a real issue. Students are faced with pressure from peers to fit in, coping with high levels of stress, or they just have general curiosity as they experiment with their newfound independence. Abuse of opioids, prescriptions, and other drugs increasingly presents risks and negative consequences for students and the campus community. Despite best intentions by campus administrators, drug education and prevention programs are often overshadowed by a focus on alcohol-only education. Bobby challenges perceptions and clarifies myths and facts surrounding drugs beyond alcohol including opioids, cocaine, marijuana, ecstasy/molly, predatory drugs, and prescription drug abuse. Instead of lecturing with technical medical information or using scare-tactics, Bobby incorporates real-world scenarios, facts and culturally relevant media to help students challenge their perceptions and make informed decisions.

Kristen Hadeed Kristen was on track to have a pretty typical college experience–until she became a CEO. During her junior year, she started cleaning houses as a side gig, but before she knew it, she had a booming business. With dozens of employees to lead and not a single textbook to tell her how to do it, Kristen had to figure out how to get people excited to clean toilets. In the end, it was her biggest failures–like the day 45 people quit on her at the same time–that taught her what it takes to become a leader worth following. Now, she wants to show you how you can become one, too. Keynotes From Hitting the Bar to Setting the Bar Dorm Room to Board Room Leadersh!t You Can’t Be Kinda Committed: Why Values are Critical to Recruitment Success The Workshop That Will Change Your Relationships Forever From Hitting the Bar to Setting the Bar Kristen used to be pretty clueless about leadership. When she started her business at 21, she didn’t have a lot of experience being in charge. From doing keg stands with her employees to never confronting anyone ever because she was afraid to hurt their feelings, she quickly figured out she had a lot to learn. Many years and hundreds of employees later, Kristen eventually got it right–but she never would’ve guessed that it would be her biggest screw-ups that taught her how to become a better leader. In the process of cleaning up her messes, she learned invaluable lessons on how to establish trust, communicate honestly, cultivate empathy, and make hard decisions. Now, Kristen...

This is the fundamental misunderstanding that is blocking them from the exact experience they seek. Amber knows, because she has lived it. In this inspiring keynote, she shares how her obsession with making her body better destroyed relationships and even the joy of reaching her childhood dream of working on Broadway.
