Blake Fly and Why He’s worth Listening to
Teens need to focus on what matters in their world. Friends matter. Family matters. Grades matter. Decisions matter. Most importantly, teenagers want to feel like they matter.
Blake uses live music, storytelling and appropriate humor to shed a bright light on the ups, downs and opportunities in high school life. He opens up about his struggles and strong points of secondary school to inspire students to leave their school (and the people in it) better than how they found it. Students leave Blake’s programs with a heightened appreciation of their school, their peers and themselves.
Blake equips students with fun ways to say thank you and appreciate others in person and online. Students will rethink the significance of their high school life, and the positive impact they can have on peers, teachers, friends and family along the way.

TOPICS COVERED

Quality Friendships vs. Quantity Friendships (Online and Offline)
Getting judged and making that experience powerful rather than painful
The Social Spectrum: The debate between fitting in and standing out
Four practical steps to developing a positive reputation that inspires others
Saying thank you: Making others matter through the power of appreciation
