Speech Topics

Technology is shaping the future, but it will be HUMANOLOGY that will determine how technology is used to transform the way we learn, work and live. To stay ahead of an increasingly digital and automated world, we need to start cultivating our most human abilities and put a premium on our uniquely human skills: judgment, vision, wisdom, creativity, and resilience.


There’s nothing soft about these skills, and we can’t afford to leave them to chance.Harnessing wide-ranging research on human evolution, biology, and psychology, Angela shares a framework for illustrating and understanding what is possible when we blend our technology with our humanity and work and when we work together toward making the world a better place to be human for us and for our children.


Curiosity, Courage, Creativity Agility and Adaptability are not fluffy, nice-to-have value-adds.


 


They’re hard-won and rigorously maintained abilities that are better referred to as “power skills” so vital to personal and organizational success across and within every field and discipline.


The best part is they are TEACHABLE, and we have the data to prove that not only can they be taught at every level; they must. Come explore with me what that looks like, sounds like and feels like in your organization.


When we think of people who made the biggest impact in our lives, it was the ones who most sincerely believed in us, and who let us know through their words and actions that we mattered. Everyone in our lives need that same validation.


Mattering a universal human need. We cannot capture the minds of our students, colleagues, employees and customers if we do not first capture their hearts.


You matter is not a statement of inspiration. It is not a project, or strategy, an event, or an item on the agenda. It is the agenda. Mattering is not something that just happens to you. It is something you actively pursue.


This workshop will leave you with the knowledge, habits and attitudes you need to transform the culture in your organization into one in which everyone knows they matter.


For centuries bravery has been a crucible of leadership and a fundamental principle for battle of any type and kind.


But, what does BRAVE look like?


How does BRAVE act and behave?


And most importantly how big can YOUR BRAVE be?


This presentation seeks to answer these questions by putting these elusive concepts of leadership and learning in place to deliver better results faster for you and those you seek to lead and serve.


Your mission is sacred. The world is hungry for people to step onto their power to affect change. It is by daring to act with the courage we wish to see more of that we grow our capacity for influence and amplify our impact in the world.


Let’s not wait another second!


Life changes when we become literate. Our entry into the “literacy club” affords us power and privilege that is unprecedented, and yet we present the idea of literacy to teachers and students as a “set of skills” to be mastered.


New literacies do not make past literacy obsolete, but it will require a new look at the way we nurture and teach our future readers and writers.


This presentation explores the differences and similarities between literacies of the past and new digital competencies and investigates how technology challenges those perceptions.


Passion matters. Passion makes us curious, compels us to dig deeper, and sustains us as we persevere towards answers to questions that matter most Bridging the gap between what exists and what is possible with PASSION; in education, in our lives and in the world.


Imagine a classroom where passion-driven genius work is not extracurricular, but is a part of the routine.


Students are invited and expected to collaborate to support each other’s genius; to experiment with ideas, discover new possibilities and make epic things happen.


Genius Hour is more than a “program” where students do fun projects together. It is an unprecedented opportunity for teachers to guide students in how to be effective learners and citizens, by helping them connect what they do in school to the broader community.


It’s our job to nurture our geniuses so they can change the world. Join us today to unlock a world of genuine curiosity, wonder, and innovation.


There is no individual or organization that wants to waste time, engage in unproductive actions, or test out 101 new platforms and apps. WE WANT TO GET IT RIGHT!


Life changes when we become literate. Our entry into the “literacy club” affords us power and privilege that is unprecedented, and yet we present the idea of literacy…


to teachers and students as a “set of skills” to be mastered. New literacies do not make past literacy obsolete, but it will require a new look at the way we nurture and teach our future readers and writers.


This presentation explores the differences and similarities between literacies of the past and new digital competencies and investigates how technology challenges those perceptions.


Emerging digital platforms give us new venues in which to assert our right, set forth in the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers


As hopelessness reaches pandemic proportions, every human on the planet is being affected and the world needs transformation. Angela Maiers’ global movement, Choose2Matter, has touched millions of lives, reshaping how each human being feels about their contribution and unleashing their individual genius. Employees are driving a new corporate culture and delivering big wins to their organizations; kids are innovating in ways that impact communities, educators are shifting from reactive to proactive. Join us to learn how your organization can embrace and benefit from this simple, yet powerful movement which empowers the employees that provide your experiences, and be ready to participate in a live interactive workshop to unleash your genius!


Technology transforms the world in which we live. It can make the impossible possible, and is key to doing more with less.Yet many leaders are apprehensive about bringing technology into their organization. Those who fear technology don’t realize that it’s not the technology that matters— it’s how you USE it and more importantly WHO we become because of that experience.


Great leaders and teachers are natural-born storytellers. Without realizing it, we change lives by the


stories we tell, not from the content we dispense. Like weavers, we combine ordinary and significant events alike into stories that tell us who we are and where we belong in our world. When we answer the questions, “Why do we need to know this? Why do we “have to” do this work?,” we are telling a story. This engaging presentation will inspire you to embrace your gift as a storyteller and guide you in the process of telling new stories.
