Social Change Leadership 2.0! – Be the CHANGE You Wish TO See in the WORLD!

When swelling emotions make people take to the streets, many of us are quick to divide and point blame. But how many of us can say we learn from it? Graduate students and other positive change agents at the University of Missouri displayed inspiring leadership thinking in the wake of their campus’s protests over diversity.

Subsequently, these events hit home so much for Joshua Fredenburg that he was inspired to create a passionate, powerful, inspiring, and transformational leadership program for student leaders who identify themselves as positive change agents entitled, “Social Leadership 2.0 – Be the CHANGE You Wish to See in the WORLD”.

In this power-packed leadership session, Joshua Fredenburg not only provides student leaders with a solid definition of leadership, but he provides these student leaders who identify themselves as positive change agents with a set of practical and applicable leadership strategies that will enable them to make a positive impact in their community, nation, and world.



David Coleman

Making Relationships Matter

Reporting “on-line” to be “in a relationship” is a far cry from actually being in one as the speed of dating and relating has accelerated dramatically. Apps like Tindr, LuLu and Grindr and sites like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, OK Cupid and Plenty of Fish have forever changed dating’s landscape. One post, one text, even one picture can alter multiple lives in a moment and be used to inflict intentional or unintentional harm on others. Colleges nationwide are promoting inclusivity, a culture of consent, and mature decision making from its campus community. In a humorous, yet challenging way, 14-Time National Speaker of the Year, David Coleman, The Dating Doctor, will help you navigate dating’s treacherous landscape as he addresses: mutual consent, safe words, becoming an intervene r, The ABC’s of Initial Interest, flirting versus sincere interest, the characteristics of healthy relationships, subtle signs that cheating may be taking place, surviving and thriving following a difficult (public) breakup, 7 traits we look for in others, common mistakes made during on -line dating, long-distance relationships, military relationships and more. David’s expertise and experience make this more than just a program…it’s an event.


Saturday Keynote Sessions


Kevin Bracy


This keynote is designed to kick-off or close-out your event, Kevin, “Your Greatness Coach,” will get your team fired up to execute their duties at their highest level of Greatness (Best Effort). Kevin will explain the distinction between the four “standards” one can CHOOSE in how they approach work and life every day:

Show Up Standard

Average Standard

Good Standard

Greatness Standard

How to Maintain Your Everyday Motivation

After Kevin delivered this keynote to one of his corporate clients, he was called “The King of the Kick-Off Keynote!” Why? Because it’s easy to go to a company event and get excited about the information given, but it’s something all together different to leave the event with action steps on how to MAINTAIN AND SUSTAIN your motivation after all the emotions, clapping, and “good intentions” that were stimulated during the event die down. That’s exactly why Kevin designed this message—to keep you up-Up-UP when the motivation from the event starts to die DOWN-Down-down.

Leadership Board Breaking Experience

We can be our “own worst enemy” when we let self-imposed barriers stand in our way. Sometimes, what stops us are matters outside our control, but, ultimately, we have more power over creating success in our lives than we think.

In this program participants will literally break through the barriers that have been holding them back. Everyone in the session will use a one-inch thick, twelve-inch square wood board as a metaphor for the obstacles and barriers we often put in our way to keep us from achieving our goals. Participants will then break through the board, using either their hand or their foot, as a physical metaphor for breaking through their barriers and achieving greatness in their life.
