College and University Speakers

Through humor and wisdom, these speakers are inspiring the next generation of leaders. Our diverse roster has been featured at SXSW, the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) National Convention, and hundreds of college campuses across North America. From large scale lectures to virtual town halls, we offer challenging messages in many formats.  If your campus is looking for added value, we are happy to arrange class visits, dinners, book signings, and even multi-day residencies. We want to help facilitate challenging conversations that lead to a more vibrant campus experience for all.
