At 22 years old, entrepreneur and keynote speaker Sam Demma doesn’t let his age define his drive or credibility. His goal is to provide students with the tools and strategies they need to become servant leaders in their schools, businesses, communities, and in the lives of those around them. And it all started with…garbage. After three career-ending soccer injuries, Sam co-founded PickWaste, a grassroots initiative that brings people together to pick up trash in their communities. That experience confirmed how small, consistent actions could have a significant impact, and he lives that message in all he does.
Since 2017, Sam has delivered over 150 presentations. His young age makes him extremely relatable to youth audiences and utterly inspiring for educators. In a few short years, his inspiring and entertaining presentations have reached thousands of students across North America and his High Performing Student programs have made a difference for young people in 6 countries. He’s delivered two TEDx talks and is the youngest board director of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers. There’s no limit to where small actions will take this big thinker.
