MORE THAN MOTIVATION
If you are looking for a speaker who can connect through comedy, storytelling, and authenticity - Houston Kraft is your guy. Houston has worked with nearly 500 schools, events, conferences, and companies across the country and is passionate about helping people create lives filled with compassion, character, purpose, and love. But it's not just about motivation - it's about creating cultures through storytelling, experiences, and hands-on tools that leave lasting and sustainable change.
Our kids loved what you had to say! I spoke with our counselors and they have been talking to the kids about what they heard. It seems like a large number of our kids really took to heart what was said. Houston did an outstanding job at having multiple stories tie together and he really hit home the point that kindness matters. The workshop was also wonderful! Everything that he has been saying and had the kids practicing was something we had been practicing in class and talking about as a StuGo. Also, thank you for speaking to both sides of the gym :) That was helpful in keeping people engaged.

Houston did an excellent job for our campus. Our students were engaged in his message. It's very difficult to get teenagers to laugh and think critically these days, but Houston was able to do this. He created a challenge for our students and staff to reach outside your normal comfort zone and take opportunities to treat others with Kindness.

Having Houston come to our school was great! I sat among the students which gave an even better insight of their impression, which was great! The kids listen intently and made fun comments of how his message was touching them. The use of humor was perfectly dispersed in his talk as was the personal incidents that had affected his decision to make the world a better place! Everyone can relate to how unkind behavior has affected them and the reminder to be kind to others. Pretending to be the boy dancing in the cafeteria was hilarious. Fear of looking stupid stops us from fun activities that we want to try but just won't do it!!!
