Shane’s findings, if we listen, can open the door to have honest conversations about the problems facing today’s teens and dialogue about effective, real world steps adults can take to truly help teens reach their fullest potential. More than just another speech, this motivational performance is at times hilarious, fascinating, deeply unsettling, illuminating and inspiring.
Shane’s speech has left a lasting impression, and our team continues to receive positive feedback from attendees. He recognized the nuances that were important to the audience, and creatively incorporated our conference themes into his talk. Shane’s meaningful and thought provoking words acted as catalyst for important conversations, and helped make our event more impactful. I’ve never experienced another speaker like him.
