Introduction: Connecting with your audience and making your event a success is my top priority! My name is Harvie Herrington and I'm a professional speaker on topics related to Overcoming Adversity and Leadership. I have experience speaking to the youth and corporate professionals. I have successfully completed over 200 speaking engagements at institutions like Iowa State University and with national brands such as Sam's Club. When speaking at your event I dive deep into questions like, Did you have a dream for your life? Did you think about it? Did it motivate you? You should have dreams. You should think about your dreams. Constantly. You should think about your dream so much it makes your insides ache. Everyone should have a dream; a burning desire to BE MORE, to DO MORE. Your dream can, and should, overwhelm you, but also it can be your power, your light, your energy. Your dream can often inspire others around you to do and want more themselves. We aren't born just to live. We are born to create, inspire, and help others make this world a better place. We are all born for greatness, but sometimes we may need a little help, a little push in the right direction. I want to be that push. I want to talk to your athletes and your student leaders. I want to help them find discover the dream within themselves, and help them towards achieving their dreams. I will help remove doubt from their minds, and drive home the point that failure is not a bad thing if you understand how it can help you in the future. The information contained within my talks will help: High school students: -Increase self confidence, self awareness, and self esteem -Improve test scores -Decrease dropout rates and increase graduation rates -Inspire dream building, goal setting and action College/University students: -Increase engagement, and retention -Increase the reputation of the institution -Increase student self-esteem and awareness -Decrease alcohol abuse, sexual assaults and race issues In addition to my keynote addresses, I also offer workshops on Personality Insights, Team building, Leadership, and Giftedness. There is no better feeling than to help someone else feel better about themselves both physically and mentally. I would like the opportunity to speak to your young athletes and leaders and give them a push towards changing their lives for the better. You should think about your dreams constantly. So much that it makes your stomach hurt. Everyone should have this burn, this desire to be more, too do more. It should and can overwhelm you. It will become your power, your light, and energy. Knowing why you are hear makes you a light, a light that will inspire others around you to do and want more. I want to help remove doubt from your mind. Maybe, just maybe one of my videos or something I say will inspire you. You were not just born to live. You were born to create, inspire and help make this world a better place. You were born for greatness, we all are. Sometimes we just need a little push in the in the right direction. The information within my talks will help to: - Increase self-confidence, self-awareness, and self-esteem, which will improve test scores - Decrease dropout rates and increase graduation rates - Inspire dream building, goal setting, and action - Failure Is not a bad thing if you understand what it can do for you in the future. Everything I do in life is to help people better themselves. To teach them to be goal orientated and chase their dreams. There is no better feeling than to make someone else feel better about themselves both physically and mentally. When it comes to speaking. I know every time I do it, someone's life is going to be changed for the better.

Motivational Speaking

We were looking for someone who understood the adversity that our school had overcome in the past year of battling COVID and who could motivate us to go further....students, faculty and staff. Harvie gave us more than we asked for as his own personal story connected and challenged us our community to battle on and focus on our goals. He spent extra time with seniors and juniors in discussing the importance of leadership during the time in our country. We are talking about when we will have Harvie back next school year!!!!!

Harvie did an excellent job speaking to our students on "The Power of Your Dream." He also did two smaller sessions on personality profiles. His story is inspirational and motivating. I heard many students say he really made them think. He made them evaluate which direction their life is headed in and what they need to change to get back on track for a successful future. I would highly recommend Harvie.
