Resolve to be HEALTHY in the New Year!

Here it is, a New Year. A time to introduce new habits into your life and start fresh. Who doesn’t love a fresh start? A chance to make some changes? We want to be better, happier, more organized, you name it! New Year’s Resolutions can be fun and positive. But they can also be unrealistic and sometimes even dangerous.

At this time of year, many young women (and people of all ages, genders, and ethnicities) make a resolution to change the way they look. They resolve to lose weight, to eat healthier, to exercise more. These can be excellent goals to strive for, but unfortunately many people do not take a healthy approach to body-related goals.

Katie H. Willcox was a new addition to our Coleman Speaks roster in 2016. Her mission aims to challenge beauty ideals implemented by the media and teaches girls to be their healthy, true, and authentic selves.

Katie is considered one of the top body positive influencers by MTV, People Magazine, and Marie Claire to name a few! She has devoted her life to changing the game of body image and spreading the message of redefining self-worth.  She has hosted a series of public workshops and has been the keynote speaker at Girl Rising, Girl’s Night Out, and Amazing Women Entrepreneurs 2016.

 

Tis the Season…for Stress.

Regardless of what Holidays you celebrate, this time of year can be stressful for anyone. Winter weather, social obligations, and end of the year reflection are just a few of the things that can cause us to feel worn down right now.

Here, our Mindfulness Expert Pandit Dasa talks about learning to “press pause” during those stressful moments.

 

Pandit Dasa is former Buddhist Monk turned author, inspirational speaker and mindfulness expert, on a mission to bring wellness into classrooms and workplaces across the country.

What is Edutainment?

 

When talking about Edutainment it can be tough to nail down an exact definition, but in general, the term refers to any form of entertainment designed to be educational (Think Sesame Street!) However, not all Edutainment is executed perfectly. Often times programs designed to be educational can get boring or veer off the tracks and lose that educational component.

Here at Metropolis Management – Coleman Speaks, we’re proud of the fact that our presenters can provide top notch lessons on some timely, heavy topics in a lighthearted, thoughtful and fun manner.

David Coleman, known worldwide as The Dating Doctor, is the only speaker ever to win Campus Activities Magazine’s Entertainer of the Year Award!

While we’re doing our post-conference work, we’d love to hear what you think! Which conferences did you attend and how was your experience? What would you like to see more of or less of next time?

 

Hop on Blocks!

We love attending Campus Programming conferences to showcase our artists and meet with students. However, we understand that not all schools have the resources to attend. Just because your Programming Board wasn’t at your regional conference doesn’t mean your campus has to miss out on the performers and presenters who will be traveling through your region!

Block Booking saves everyone time and money!

When an artist is working several days in the same area, he/she saves money on travel expenses and we are able to pass that savings on! It also saves an artist from having to travel back and forth across a large region multiple times. This allows more time for rest which makes for a happier, healthier artist!

Block Booking creates connection!

When schools are able to work together to create a block for an artist, this provides an opportunity for communication between schools and forges a relationship with your Regional Booking Agent.

Contact us today to find out more about Block Booking and learn about the opportunities available in your region.

WINNer’s Minutes from Coach Winn

How many hours have you sat in front of the television set admiring the athletes competing in the Olympic Games? Did you watch Lilly King win her first gold medal in swimming, Michael Phelps win his 21st Olympic medal in the 400 freestyle relay or Simone Biles assist the US women gymnast to the gold?

I can’t take my eyes off the television set in fear that I might miss a golden moment.

With every step, hop, leap and jump that an American athlete takes, I am right there with them. I feel their humiliation, disappointment and tears when they fail, and I laugh, dance and high five when they win.

You probably know these feelings. When you are invested in the outcome of your team, you feel the same way. Leaders who share the emotions of their team and who possess emotional intelligence are more likely to be great leaders.

As a former two-time Olympian and National Coach of the Year, I will assist you in building Olympic leaders and WINNING teams.
Two of the programs I offer that will create Olympic-minded leaders and WINNING teams are:

*Win or Lose is Something You Chose: The Seven Key Elements for Building Team Cohesion.
*Serve Who? I’m The Leader…I Don’t Follow I Lead.

““The difference between Olympic-minded leaders and other leaders is the decision to eliminate all obstacles in the way of success.”

–Coach Sherry Winn
