CMEA And CBE Fall Conference 2017

by | Sep 14, 2017 | Speaking Recap, Students And Educators Speaking

I was asked to give an inspirational keynote for the Colorado Marketing Education Association and Colorado Business Educators Fall Conference at Villages in beautiful Breckenridge, Colorado.

The purpose of this presentation was to motivate teachers from all across the state build a stronger sense of community and inspire them to go the extra mile to help their students thrive! We focused on the importance of saying “YES” to new experiences and breaking through comfort zones to live the life we desire.

I’m thankful for the opportunity to connect with such an amazing collective of dedicated teachers and to present in an incredible mountain town that I was lucky enough to call home during my professional snowboarding days!


This was the second time that I have gotten to watch Kenyon give his Bucket List Life speech. I’ll be honest with you, it was just as powerful the second time as it was the first. It’s very inspirational – It gives everyone the chance to really analyze what they’re doing, what they want to do, and why they need to put themselves out there and not just live inside of the safe little bubble that we normally put up around ourselves.

I recommend Kenyon to any event that you want to get your community full of energy, out of their seats, talking to new people, analyzing what they’re doing in their own lives, and walking away with a great message and a great purpose for what they’re going to be doing in the near future.

I loved his message. He just talked about living your best life, and living through those fears that people have, and pushing yourself, because we only have one life. I think that it helped us to think about some of those fears that we have, and maybe try to push past some of those things, and give back to our communities. It was incredibly powerful.

I would love to recommend Kenyon to anyone who is looking for a little motivation. He did a great job.

I thought he was one of the better speakers we’ve ever had at this conference. You could see on the faces of the people in there – I saw people laughing, people crying, it was just a really well done speech. He connected to his personal life and brought us into his world and through his experiences showed us what exemplified what he was doing, what he was talking about.

We’ll try and book him at other things that we do, he’s awesome.
