Spectacular motivational talks designed to inspire and empower the next generation with important lessons directly applicable to their lived experiences in school/life. Exciting performances with a variety of amazing skills (lightsabers, swords etc…) throughout the presentation establish student respect, drive home important points and keep audience engaged throughout. Available in three versions which adapt to suit the age, mental development, and attention span of the audience: 1) K-7 How to Unlock your Superpowers Inspiring and empowering kids to discover their unique gifts, connect to their intuition, and develop their gifts with powerful knowledge on skill development and creativity (persistence, patience, practice, exploration, collaboration etc…) 2) Gr 7-9 The Game of Life This show was created to address the growing impact of time wasting distractions in a digital age on our society and youth (cell phones, tik tok, Instagram etc…). Using the relatable analogy of video games, I teach how to consciously spend their limited ‘experience points’ (i.e. time) in ways that contribute to their growth, and impact the world in positive ways. 3) Gr 10-12 The Power of Purpose High school students are on the precipice of adulthood, and newfound independence to choose their own path. Many experience uncertainty, fear and frustration in a rapidly evolving modern world that has changed drastically from the world of their parents. This show is designed to inspire the next generation to discover/choose their own unique Path of Purpose, and to empower them create a life of meaning, fulfilment, and success. Themes (critical thinking, digital literacy, intuition, innovation, social responsibility, peer pressure, stereotypes, privilege and more!)
