Awesome speeches that entertain, educate, and inspire.

Cam F. Awesome

Youth & corporate speaking

As a proud member of the National Speakers Association, I have traveled far and wide to speak to both students and professional audiences.

The topics I cover are important: bullying, how to develop cultural competence, living a drug-free lifestyle, and using technology as a tool instead of a distraction.

And thanks to my background as a standup comic (I’ve performed at Funny Bone, Laugh Factory, Hyenas, and more), I am able to form an instant connection with my audience and keep them entertained throughout the speech.

In addition to my work as a speaker, I also emcee charity events, festivals, award shows, and galas. Whether I’m announcing live actions, introducing the band, or filling time with humor, I’m always high energy!

Genuine and dynamic keynotes for your school assembly

Students and teachers love my presentations because I help them realize their true potential while keeping them entertained. Available in-person and virtually, my keynote topics can be customized from 40-60 minutes with a Q&A at the end, and are appropriate for students in high school and middle school.

Positivity and Resilience

An Attitude of Gratitude

Building a Championship Mindset through gratitude

There are many challenges in life. Grades, finals, try-outs, bullies, home life, etc,.  I help students make these things more tolerable with just a change in attitude! Actually, a little Gratitude. Gratitude has proved to be associated with greater happiness, positive emotions, improved health, and even stronger relationships.  There’s a reason gratitude rhymes with attitude, because they go hand-in-hand. I am known for being positive, optimistic and grateful. I share simple but effective daily practices that lead to a more positive mindset. I also share a 30-Day Gratitude Challenge to students who could use a little positivity in their lives!

Themes & outcomes
  • How to remain resilient during unsure times
  • Strategic ways of practicing gratitude daily
  • Simple and effective tips to build a resilient mindset
  • How to set and attack ambitious goals
  • The true definition of “hard work”
  • Ways to identify and avoid distractions to stay on course

Cam was indeed Awesome! He delivered exactly the message and content he promised, in a format that kept my students both entertained and engaged. Students were encouraged to respectfully discuss topics they usually avoid. Cam will be coming back to my classroom for sure!
