About our Speaking Opportunities

High Schools

Kurt has shared his message of perseverance and resiliency with youth and teens across the country. Regardless of the particular makeup of the audience, Kurt's message resonates with these kids as he explains in direct, clear and no uncertain terms how he overcame the odds as a chronic juvenile delinquent to become a sports agent and attorney. "When someone doubts you, you have two options - you can prove them right or you can prove them wrong. I chose to prove them wrong."

Civic Organizations

Kurt has been a guest speaker for many civic organizations including Rotary International, Kiwanis and local Chambers of Commerce. Understanding the importance these organizations play in the community, Kurt shares his story in an effort to show that the contributions of these civic groups is paramount to the functioning of our local communities. "I am proof of the impact one can have when he/she contributes to the community, especially when we see kids for their potential. It's absolutely powerful and life-changing!"

Corporate & Nonprofit Events

While Kurt's story is one of hope, hope without work is not a productive strategy. As a motivational speaker for both non-profit and for-profit companies, Kurt is able to help these companies identify, pursue and ultimately achieve their corporate objectives. Whether serving as a keynote speaker, serving on a panel of experts, or leading a seminar, Kurt's experience in business and law, coupled with his personal stories of triumph transcend across any industry. "We cannot control everything that happens to us, but we can control how we respond to what happens to us - therein lay the opportunity for personal and professional growth."
