YOUTH MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER

CONNECTING WITH STUDENTS ON AN EMOTIONAL LEVEL

Youth motivational speaker David Flood has been speaking with and helping teens and young adults for over 20 years. He teaches teens through the telling of his own very personal stories about his family in the past and present.

At David’s student assembly programs he uses simple examples that students can relate to in order to show them how to improve their lives and how to have a profound impact on those around them. David will reinforce any social and emotional learning (SEL) that your school is already providing. He believes in proactive emotional literacy to encourage dignity and respect throughout the building. It is for this reason that he has spoken in over 600 middle schools and high schools as well as leadership conferences, parent workshops, and professional development days for teachers.

He’s been a featured speaker at middle school assemblies, high school assemblies, colleges, and teacher/counselor conferences throughout the United States and Canada and established himself as a national youth motivational speaker that students connect with on an emotional level. David is one of the best youth motivational speakers in the country today.

What if though we really looked at these three actions as something else?  What if we asked ourselves why?  Why do I need to judge that person?  Why do I have to blame someone?  Why do I have to shame someone?  Is it possible that I need to deflect some of the responsibility from myself?  Is it possible I am afraid to look at myself?  Is it possible that tearing someone else down builds me up?  As a youth speaker, I ask kids to try and look on the inside of others rather than the outside.  I know that is difficult to do especially when someone is acting like an idiot.

What if instead of passing judgment upon others with whom we disagree  or dislike, we sent them love?  What if we said a quiet prayer for that person?  What if instead of pointing out their flaws to them or others we thought of something in ourselves that we need to work on?  What if we decided that for just ten minutes each day we would pray for someone on the other side of the […]
