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.
This is the 2nd year we have had Houston join us for the Jake Anderson Leadership Symposium, & I didn't think it was possible, but it was better than the first! I have received numerous texts from youth & parents of youth who have thanked us for having Houston share his powerful, inspirational, & deeply personal message of Kindness & love. We look forward to building upon this message next year, incorporating a parent/community coffee, &/or some of the meaningful curriculum Houston's developed into our broader system! Thank you!

Houston was everything and more we wanted in a Kindness Week speaker! He effectively discussed the importance of kindness with humor, honesty, and relevant examples, and he kept the students engaged throughout the whole assembly. He was a huge hit among the students and the staff members! His small group workshop was also super effective, and students continued to be moved by his examples. Houston was incredible and I could not speak more highly of him!

This message was sent to my secretary from a parent: "Hey Tina, just wanted to give a shout out. I heard today's speaker was awesome. Not sure how he ended up speaking at China, but Mackenzie gave him rave reviews!!" I only heard positive comments from staff and students continually since our assembly. We would like to continue on this journey of promoting a culture of kindness in our building and will be discussing purchasing one of the programs for advisory or leadership. Houston's message is so powerful. Every single person was able to relate to his message.
