My name is Richard Santana and I am a professional youth motivational speaker, conducting school assembly programs that are educational and motivational for well over two decades. I cover a variety of topics such as gang prevention, drug abuse, diversity and violence prevention to name of few. I have made my living as a motivational speaker for over 20 years.
I have decided to start blogging simply to chronicle some of the keynote presentations and school assembly programs I provide. I have traveled the country to various school districts both big and small, inner city and rural. In my travels, I have come across a variety of people who have been inspired by my message and have shared with me intimate stories of struggles and their efforts to overcome adversity. These stories inspire me to continue spreading hope to audiences young and old. I hope that these stories will also inspire you.
My secondary purpose is to provide clarity on the business of motivational speaking. First, for those seeking to hire a keynote speaker or youth motivational speaker, my hope is to provide better insight so that you can secure the most appropriate motivational speaker for your leadership conference, school assembly, staff development or educational convention. Secondly, for those interested in become a professional keynote speaker, I will reveal some strategies to enhance your presentation and maximize your opportunities for securing a booking. I am no expert, but I do have an extensive amount of experience I can share.
