Pursue the Career YOU Love & Be Successful

All too often

Students begin their secondary education with little idea of what they want to do with their lives.

Some lack motivation. Outside influences might be preventing them from connecting with who they are. Students without a clear sense of purpose can become desperately unhappy, underperform – drop out of school.

Celebrity speaker Nick Tokman empowers students so they figure out what they want to do, make sure they pursue a career they are passionate about and ensure that they remain focused on finishing their degree.

Nick illustrates how to think creatively about achieving one’s goals. He provides students with focus to persevere, finish their education, encouragement to get involved on campus and to lay the foundation for successful careers.

Whether you want your event live or virtual, Nick has you covered.

Students will learn:

  • Steps to figure out their career path when they’re uncertain
  • The mindset to overcome adversity & leverage failure for success
  • Practical & useful advice to deal with negative influences
  • Valuable life lessons to succeed beyond college/university
  • Insight on how campus engagement leads to self-discovery
