Student Keynote (45-60 minutes) | Ideal For: School-Wide Assembly, Kindness Conference, Leadership Conference, Volunteer Appreciation Event
Embedded within every student is the power to make a massive impact inside and outside of the classroom. When Sam was in grade 12 he had a world issues teacher – Micheal Loudfoot – who taught him that all it takes to make a difference is the commitment to a small consistent action. This lesson sprung Sam on a journey to test this principle and it lead to the start of an initiative called PickWaste that was featured all over national news. Using this keynote Sam challenges students to rethink what is possible and provides them with the tools and strategies they need to become changemakers.
Student Keynote (45-60 minutes) | Ideal for: School Assembly, Summer Send-off, Careers Conference, Graduation, Orientation
From a very young age students are pressured into believing that they MUST figure out exactly what they want to do with their lives. By the age of 13 they have already begun laying out their life path. As a student, Sam’s journey to figuring out what he wanted took him to Italy for 6 months, a fifth year of high school, conferences across North America, and university. In this keynote Sam uses his experiences to makes it clear that it is okay if students cannot answer that question, and instead he has the students focus on gaining life experiences and problem solving.
Post Keynote Workshop (30 minutes) | Ideal for: Conference Breakout Session, Student Workshop, Grade 9 orientation.
Following any keynote presentation Sam will create a customized workshop to address an issue in your school community. Topics he has previously addressed include bullying, mental health, starting a social movement and discussing the mistakes he made as a student. These workshops will be built along with the student leaders in your school to ensure a HIGHLY customized product and experience.
