Limited Capacity seats available

To build community of any size, two things are required: Something in common… and telling your story. In the year of Covid19, then need to build (or re-build) school connections is more critical than ever and embracing the power of storytelling is the key to reconnecting our school communities and reaching our students in meaningful ways.
Stu Cabe, the founder of The Ovation Company, is one of the country’s most renowned youth speakers and has been telling “meaningful stories” for nearly 25 years. Known as “The Big Elephant” guy, Stu has presented to countless schools in Washington state (and all over the country), speaking to nearly 120,000 students each year. Over 1.3 million students have heard Stu speak, and the secret to Stu’s success is simple: he is a true storyteller. In this session, Stu will share his trade secrets, techniques and easy to use “story starters” that are sure to not only connect students to each other, but also students to their teachers. Stu believes stories are the most powerful way to learn, connect and motivate people of all ages. Giving students (and educators) permission to tell their story in a safe and strategic way opens the door to new connections that improve learning and build connections. Joining Stu in this session is Stu’s new colleague and business associate, Nic Peterson, a veteran activities director out of Fresno, California. Between Stu’s 20 year career of large group presenting and Nic’s “real world” application with kids in the classroom, this session promises to be informative, entertaining and uplifting. Stu and Nic look forward to meeting you all!
