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.

My uncle gave me the best hugs.  They kind of hurt though because he was so strong, but I would always prepare myself before he pulled me in.  The hug in the picture attached to this article was maybe the most spontaneous hug I have ever received.  I had just finished a middle school assembly and then went into the cafeteria to chat with the kids.  When I visit schools I enjoy going to lunch with the kids.  I was sitting on a table and this girl just ran up to me out of nowhere and embraced me and then went back to her seat.  The kids thought it was awesome and I remember a collective “awwwwwww” coming from […]
