This week I got tipped off that a guy was in town doing bullying prevention assemblies at some of the local Albany NY area schools. While I’ve been out on the road quite a bit doing my own Bully Proof Kid and Bully Proof Teen programs I don’t get to experience other speakers and presenters very much.
I was in for a surprise.
I admit I started of somewhat skeptical. I have experienced speakers who give a good “rah, rah” talk that makes everybody feel good for a little while but then everything goes back to “normal.” I’ve seen speakers that literally strung together a bunch of cliches that kids hear as “blah, blah, blah, blah”.
One of my own personal missions is to create assemblies that make a positive lasting difference in kids lives. Seeing Mike Donahue did more than all the speaker training intensives I’ve attended to empower me to take my own bullying prevention programs to the next level.
Mike was kind enough to allow me to interview him at my local Starbucks… Here it is:
