You hire a youth motivational speaker to come in and provide those defining moment “Ah-Ha” thoughts for your high school students. You don’t just say, “Hey Jeff, if only one person benefits from your message, we succeeded!” That isn’t good enough. You want a youth speaker to come in and BAM . . . The kids are mesmerized by your passion, enthusiasm, content, and delivery. The kids love that you are real and relateable. The end result is that EVERY kid walks away thinking of something you said and they take it to heart to make changes or to self evaluate their own lives after hearing you speak.
Meet international and renowned youth motivational speaker and teen life coach, Jeff Yalden. For nearly 20 years, Jeff Yalden has mesmerized teen audiences, high school and middle school assemblies, youth leadership conferences in all 50 states and literally to youth representing over 48 different countries. He’s a presence to be felt when he walks in any room. Ask the 16 countries in southeast Asia this past July when Jeff was hired to be a keynote speaker at the AG-SIM International Youth Leadership Summit. They hired Jeff, the a week prior to the event they asked Jeff to kindly remove his earrings, cover his tattoos, and be respectful of the culture. Jeff responded, “Perhaps we should cancel because I don’t compromise who I am to speak to audience and not be authentic.” The client understand and appreciated his honesty and accepted that his experience and professionalism would overcome his appearance. Jeff is real and doesn’t compromise anything to be the man he is today. He loves teens and shares a message that answers teens questions. Teens love him and ultimately so do their teachers and parents.
Parents love Jeff so much that in 2012 three schools specifically had local families pay Jeff’s full fee for Jeff to come to their children’s school to do a school assembly. Parents paid for Jeff . . . Can you believe that?
Jeff is different. First, after 20 years of high school assemblies and middle school assemblies, and all that travel to get to and return to each engagement, Jeff is still grateful his phone rings and emails come in. He is edgy, but always age appropriate. Jeff takes his message to the line, but never crosses it. From prisons to National Student Leadership Conferences hire Jeff Yalden. From the Search Institute to some of the toughest schools in America hire Jeff to deliver the “Jeff Yalden Experience.”
Jeff is a master at walking in and sizing up any high school audience. He can size up any venue, any theme, your objective, and deliver a message while tying in the message you want to convey while not missing the message Jeff wants to deliver.
“He’s an oxymoron”, said one student that recently heard him speak. You see this guy walk in the room and he looks like one of America’s bad asses that should be on television and he grabs you with his awesome size and presence, and then you hear him talk and he’s like a teddy bear.” It’s amazing to see him and your first impression is like, “I can’t wait to hear him speak.” Then you hear him and all you think is, “This guy is awesome!” while you are listening intently on the messages about life and what is really important. He’s the one youth speaker I can listen to all day. His stories are real and he knows how to talk to us in a way that we want to listen.
