Leadership DNA:

The Makeup of an Extraordinary Leader

Extraordinary leaders understand who they are, their purpose and they have a clear vision for what they expect to accomplish. Their success is neither an accident nor a result of luck – rather, it’s a byproduct of their leadership DNA which can be developed! In this high-energy and interactive presentation, Kevin will show exactly where students can start in fully developing their leadership abilities, living their passion and influentially leading others. He will outline how it’s possible for anyone, from any background, to think bigger than ever before and achieve extraordinary success.

Kevin lived his first dream at the young age of 22 by meeting his teenage idol Bob Barker and winning on the popular television game show The Price is Right! How he got on the show, and won, is an inspiring and hilariously entertaining story of vision, persistence and passion. If you desire a dynamic, fun and authentic keynote presentation that inspires students with a powerful call-to-action takeaway toward their dream, then Leadership DNA is your ideal program. As Kevin says, you can only live a dream if you have one first!

An ideal keynote for student leadership conferences and events!

Proud and Purposeful:

THE Fraternal Experience

An interesting fact is that the majority of fraternal members never expected to join their fraternity or sorority when they first arrived to campus. Why is that? More importantly, how can we change that reality so new students know, and are excited to explore how, joining a fraternal organization will lead them to an incredible collegiate experience and beyond. Proud and Purposeful: THE Fraternal Experience will empower and equip fraternity and sorority members with a renewed sense of motivation, prdide and purpose for their affiliation. Members will be reminded of their “why” for joining and how to take advantage of the countless incredible opportunities that fraternal involvement provides.

In this new and inspirational presentation ideal for Greek Week and various fraternal events, Kevin shares a unique perspective. What he encountered during his first year of college, and more importantly why he changed his mind about ultimately joining a fraternity, will both awe and inspire audiences listening and engaged with his entertaining story. Transforming himself from “never joiner” to chapter president further opened up new doors such as Greek Man of the Year, leadership consultant, Greek Advisor and Dean of Students. Kevin’s keynote presentation shares an inspirational message all fraternity and sorority members should hear and reflect upon.

Ideal for Greek Week and New Member events & leadership activities!


Start SMART and Finish STRONG

It’s tough when we deal with setbacks in life, get overwhelmed and when something doesn’t go according to plan. Whether we are a new student in college or a corporate executive, there are times when giving up creeps in our mind and we begin to doubt ourselves. However, these are the moments when we cannot give up, when we need to develop grit, press onward and break through the adversity we are facing. These are the “opportunities” where extraordinary leadership is required and when our struggles can actually develop our strengths. This interactive presentation will reveal the amazing stories, leadership secrets and strategies from extraordinary leaders that Dr. Snyder discovered through his TEDx talk and has been shared with nearly 500,000 people in all 50 states. This presentation is ideal for students at all levels and will teach them the key ingredients that, when combined, are the success recipe for being UNSTOPPABLE both in college and in life! Afterward, students will feel empowered about taking their leadership to the next level and developing an action plan helping them attain their highest potential.

An ideal keynote for first year students and community colleges!
