OUR SPEECHES EDUCATE & ENGAGE STUDENTS!

The Currency Of Confidence

Everyone tells students to go for it, but few teach them how. It’s hard to go for your dreams when you don’t feel you have the confidence to do it. Starting a career is scary. Almost as scary as becoming an adult and striking out on your own. Students are facing both of these life journeys at the same time.

 

How can we empower students to tackle these obstacles with excitement versus fear? We instill confidence in them. Now, before you start to believe this is a fluff-filled workshop without a powerful impact, let’s lay out the facts. Studies show that success is based 50% on competence and 50% on confidence. Fact is, confident students are more successful. In comes The Currency Of Confidence, a workshop that teaches students techniques and strategies they can use to build their confidence, and ditch the comparison matrix that social media breeds. This workshop is engaging, action-packed and empowers every single student with the tools they need to have more confidence and start planning out a career worth loving!

DiverseU

Many would argue that diversity has a look, it's a visible representation of differences, but in order to truly have a diverse university, your campus must have a feel. It's a feeling and a community that allows each and every student to be themselves. DiverseU is a workshop that teaches students how to be diversity champions and why it's in their best interest to do so. 

 

As a former employment discrimination lawyer who handled diversity cases for billion-dollar corporations, Ashley brings a unique perspective to the training and weeds in stories that will make students want to learn how they can move the diversity needle forward not just for the benefit of campus generally, but for their own personal benefit! 

The College Hustle

Three things comprise your success in college - and in life for that matter - your mindset, your beliefs, and your actions. We like to call this the MBA that's accessible to everyone.

 

In the College Hustle, we break down the importance of a clear and strategic growth mindset, which over times transform into beliefs that inform goal-oriented actions. In this funny, engaging and fun-filled workshop, we go over how students can achieve outstanding grades, strategically plan for their future and develop the mindset to succeed in life.

 

We even discuss how having a plan can help students start their careers with a higher salary! We use storytelling, eye-opening statistics, and humor to change the way students navigate their collegiate careers!
