Speaking & Workshops

 “Our conference had a theme of embracing change and Chase was really able to get at the heart of change in his keynote speech. I don’t believe inspiring and motivating are strong enough words for the impact he truly had on everyone in attendance. All of the attendees were engaged and walked away ready to take on the challenges they face.”

Cindy Schumacher, executive director, The Governor John Engler Center for Charter Schools at Central Michigan University

“Chase engaged our audience with meaningful stories to drive home the key messages of his presentation.  His understanding of psychology and its impact on teaching and learning is impressive.  The audience was both challenged and affirmed and his humor added a fun dimension to his keynote speech.  His credibility to speak about education is through the roof, considering he still teaches high school every day and has firsthand experience with what truly works and what is merely rhetoric.  Chase is professional, collaborative, and a tremendous advocate for teachers and teaching.”

 John S., Systems Change Conference Organizer, South Dakota

“Chase’s instruction has completely transformed the way our organization facilitates trainings. His techniques, strategies, and unique concepts have allowed us as facilitators to connect with our audiences, create memorable experiences, and effectively teach concepts in ways that wouldn’t have been possible without Chase’s expertise.”

Although we call them “speeches” or “keynotes,” my mission is to do more than simply talk at groups.  I engage interactive dialogues and experiences to collaborate with teachers and students.  My mission is to help people strengthen three things:

  1. Their sense of purpose;
  2. Their ability to frame new perspectives;
  3. Their potential to thrive.

Each presentation and training mixes powerful stories, research-based concepts, and personalized dialogue to empower listeners.  And, since I am first and foremost a teacher, I know that not every program, school, teacher, or student is the same. Therefore, I offer flexibility in collaborating with students and teachers, including:

– In-service trainings from one-hour to multiple days;

– Student programs, learning sessions, and keynotes;

– Consultation for creating/revising curriculum;

– One-on-one instructional coaching;

– Follow up support by phone, video conference, and email;

– Adaptable trainings and consultation (I am not a one-size fits all trainer).
