DIGNITY & RESPECT – “LOOK ON THE INSIDE”
David Flood’s Youth Motivational Programs benefit from his experience as a hospice volunteer and work with special needs children, including his son. These two things enable him to speak about human dignity and respect like no other youth motivational speaker in the industry. He is a highly skilled youth speaker; capturing the children’s attention with appropriate humor, identifying the issues that they are dealing with, and guiding them through both ways to address a situation that they find themselves in, or see another person experiencing.
Whether David is speaking to middle school students or high school students, his humor and stories are age appropriate. He understands how to relate to students on their level, regardless of their age or social status.
David’s middle and high school assemblies focus on teen attitudes and the choices that they make everyday. David connects with his audiences on an emotional level and there is always a line of students waiting to speak with him when he finishes. Both students in middle school and high school who attend his assembly program find something in his story that they can relate to. His message covers: dignity, respect, compassion, character, attitude, tolerance, understanding, leadership, and core values.
David feels to be a leader you need not avoid situations, but rather address it, whether it is happening to you or someone else. He reinforces this approach by giving the students social assignments and challenges. Schools are then given the choice of having him follow up with the students in the lunchroom and classrooms later in the day or with a short video message a few days after his assembly. His unique program works with both middle school and high school students challenging them as they progress through these formative years. It is a program that addresses the issues each student in each grade is dealing with, refocusing them on the importance of dignity, respect, and compassion. Students will leave with a “call to action”….to reach, to respect, and to do.
