Stand Up For Families
Wow I can not tell you how blown away I am about Michael Pritchard I have sampled some of his videos and gone through his website and am so excited to be able to take part in his up coming program at William J Johnston’s Middle School on Thursday October 28th 2010. Being the mother of 6 kids I am always on the look out for advice and different ways on handling the challenge of raising kids to be caring and responsible
Who is Michael Pritchard? Michael is a nationally acclaimed keynote speaker who uses humor to inspire and educate his audiences on communication skills. He started his career as a comedian and as a juvenile counselor in San Francisco’s Youth Guidance Center. As one student describes him “he is a big guy with a warm heart who truly walks as he talks.” He is America’s leading motivational speaker and has been featured in Time magazine and on CNN’s “somebody who is making a difference.” He has been profiled on CBS Sunday Morning and on the Today Show for using humor to help initiate positive change in youth across America.
