As I write today, I'm currently in awe of the unprecedented power of an electrical storm occurring right now outside my office window here in Orlando, FL. I keep unplugging my laptop each time I hear lightning getting closer. It's amazing to hear and behold.
The Creator and the creation - incredible, amazing, magnificent and awe-inspiring!
Diversity is just another wonderful and beautiful element of the creation: uniquely positioned, placed, fitted, framed and woven together throughout the earth to be mutually advantageous and bless one another if we will but take time to discern the greatness in each and everyone of us. When we do so and give the rightful honor and proper attention to our diversity, gifts, talents and abilities – collectively and globally we become increasingly dynamic.
It’s always good to speak to people celebrating and endeavoring to build stronger diversity at the workplace and on their University and college campuses.
I just returned from Houston, TX where I spoke at a middle school on "Academic Success For Better Grades". The diversity there was very refreshing and the kids were wonderfully responsive. We had a blast and a lot of fun together! Isn’t that what it’s all about? I like to have fun while I get the job done. It all begins with connection, something sadly many corporate environments and academic communities lack. But that’s where I come in!
Global Students Success Speaker
As for my various talks on diversity, they are innumerable and countless because I've been to 55 countries and always pull from different experiences given the audience before me in any given situation and the purpose of the school for having me speak, because I believe connection must precede revelation and impartation of truth.
Like the United Nations, University and College campuses are alive and full of rich cultural diversity. American Universities and Colleges are the one place where students from around the world gather as one to live, learn, laugh and grow together. Yet unless that togetherness is facilitated and adequately cultivated by academic advisors, deans and administration much cross-pollination within the educational process will be lost and the possible gains diminished because of fear, misunderstanding and isolationism.
As a former 11th and 12th grade ESL (English teacher to foreign learners) teacher, I personally and experientially know the importance of listening to students, asking hard questions, challenging stereotypes and building bridges. After I was done with my ESL class, it felt like the United Nations with astute ambassadors representing their collective countries and eager to engage in meaningful dialogue and discourse. Very impressive and fulfilling as an educator I must say.
By the way, here below is a brief video I shot at the UN you might enjoy.
World Peace Over Propaganda & Demonizing Nations
My book "Diversity, Multiculturalism & Global Cooperation" is a wonderful place to begin, the back cover of which I have attached below for your review (followed by my bio) should you want to pre-order a certain amount for any event. Incidentally, I make a great speaker (if I may say so myself) for any diversity and multiculturalism event. Most importantly, I always come in with open ears and endeavor to compliment whatever my host inviting me is seeking to accomplish. Purposefully together we always skillfully surprise ourselves and wow our audiences!
It would be a great honor to speak in your city to those you have influence over. I count it a great privilege, honor and responsibility to speak into peoples lives and always do so with a circumspect heart intent and purposing to make a lasting impact for good.
Upon hearing from you concerning the amount people to be in attendance at your event and your budget, I can best discern the ideal package to best serve you and exceed your expectations.
ps. Below is the back cover of my book “Diversity, Multiculturalism & Global Cooperation”
Embrace Your World, Celebrate Diversity & Live Your Dreams!
Our world is becoming increasingly interconnected and multicultural. Daily by reason of technology, the economy, and our environment nations are becoming interdependent. None of us are as strong as all of us. Therefore stop the fuss and peaceably unite to be prosperous. As we intelligently work together we can solve society’s problems, heal the hurting, and help the suffering.
Global cooperation and happily embracing our diversity is the key to impact our world. Cultivate tolerance to give people the freedom to be without casting judgment or putting your map upon them. Challenge faulty stereotypes developed by parental upbringing, societal conditioning, religious reasoning, or political positioning. Before presumptuously believing any idea pertaining to race, first test its accuracy and validity.
Confront your fears head on and transcend miniscule mindsets limiting the free flow of life. Transcend subtle stereotypes and discover the joys of global cooperation to turbo charge your destiny en route to personal and professional fulfillment.
Rise above racial bias, snap judgments, and hidden fears to live freely. Surpass your past to create new success as you embrace the potential of every ethnicity and cultivate mutual prosperity harmoniously.
Free your mind to forgive and live gloriously among all of humanity, whom the Creator by divine design engineered intelligently and orchestrated geographically to produce in us personal growth magnificently as we work together cooperatively.
Rather than being fearful and labeled a hater, hear your heart’s cry to help bridge the racial divide, and happily bring people harmoniously together.
Cultivate global awareness and warmly welcome diversity to transform your community. Be the light where the dignity and integrity of every human being can be upheld, expressed, and embraced.
