Kevin is a leading youth speaker on suicide prevention, impaired driving and overcoming obstacles. He is living proof that one poor choice can change one’s life forever, or even end it. From his wheelchair, Kevin Brooks shares the story of the night that changed his life forever… Kevin left a party, driving at excessive speeds after consuming large amounts of alcohol. He was not alone. Beside him sat his passenger and childhood friend Brendan. The result – a horrific crash…Brendan didn’t walk away from the crash…. Neither did Kevin.
Today, Kevin tells his life changing story to audiences of all ages and sizes across North America, and has reached nearly half a million people in well over 1,000 high schools and community sponsored events.
His honest and straightforward presentation impacts students and will impact them like none other. His unique style of motivation will inspire people to appreciate life is a profound new way, and in turn, make better, smarter, moment-to-moment decisions. Your students will be won over from the start, and forever changed from hearing his story. His long-lasting impression with powerful take-aways will leave you (and your students) wiggling your toes!
Kevin travels from Vancouver, Canada.
Kevin Brooks is the most phenomenal speaker I can imagine for teens. If our students ever hear one speaker in their lives, it needs to be Kevin Brooks. He was the kind of student that we so often have trouble connecting with, the ones that feel invincible. I truly believe he reaches and impacts our students like no one else can.
It has been nearly three years since I saw Kevin’s presentation, but his inspirational message still follows me to this day. You are making this world a far better place.
I held the doors as students exited, and I saw so many moved faces, many with tears. I have seen the same group of kids sit through other presentations, but not nearly as interested or involved as during yours. You made a difference in at least one student’s life in as little as one day. You truly have a gift; thanks for sharing it.
The presentation students heard today was unreal and well received. Many made the comment that this was the best presentation they have ever seen. You really a lot of people today!
I am so grateful I had the opportunity to hear you speak today. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing, inspirational story with us. You are truly my hero, an amazing person and hilarious, too!
Your story was amazing, and it really inspired me. That story will be with me for life. I will never forget it or you. The way you shared your story really sunk in.
As a 26-year staff member at Grand Island Senior High, I can assure you that no other speaker during my career has captivated our audience in such a you-could-hear-a-pin-drop fashion. Quite impressive considering I was there during the 9th and 10th grade session! Thanks for sharing your story. I know you had an impact on our students!
