Last week, I had the privilege of introducing Kevin Carroll to a packed auditorium of students and faculty. Rarely have I seen a speaker maintain the focus of hundreds of students for that long a time. They even stayed through the entire Q & A session. He brought down the house. If your company is looking for an inspirational speaker for creativity and innovation, I strongly recommend Kevin. His story is incredibly engaging, and he is definitely a positive agent of change. His website is here.
A few memorable lines from Kevin are:
- A closed mouth don’t get fed: speak up for yourself if you want someone to listen.
- Haters are my motivators: let the pessimism of others inspire you to act.
- Be a catalyst – an excitatory agent that speeds up or changes a process, help others change their ideas into reality
- Be a doer, not a talker: a lot of us talk about making a difference. But few of us actually go a head and do it.
