Serving the LEADUCATORS
Barry is exactly what we needed for our kindness week/ pink day assembly. He reminded all of us that we really matter and that “kindness is cool.” Many students from both junior and senior high voiced their appreciation about his message and said that Barry was able to make them laugh and feel good about themselves. — Sharon Brenton, Guidance Counsellor
Epic Engage™ engages youth and education; and loves it. We are a leadership development company that helps educators, students and youth…
- educate and lead with character, strength and joyful excellence
- unite strong, diverse cultures of purpose, talent and capacity
- inspire learning cultures of flourishing creativity and growth.
We call you the Leaducators™… those who understand that great education is great leadership and great leadership is great education… and engage both as same, as teachers and students. At Epic Engage™, we work with educators and youth. Building cultures of capacity through education and learning, our focal point is the spirit of youth and how we engage at school and community… to flourish and prosper. Rather than harnessing youth; we imagine unleashing them. Now, with that in mind, imagine:
- leadership development that lights a fire
- advancing character at school, family, work and community
- building excellence through capacity and creativity
- engaging both unity and diversity for ultimate advantage
… with a powerful focus on education. Imagine not only bridging the gap, but building a powerful platform to engage youth on campus, at home, at work and in community. Inspired by the global work of The Virtues Project™ and our own deep and broad knowledge, skill and experience… we bring our all. Consider:

This session is about both self-care and empowerment, all in one. It delivers on ideas and tools for giving ourselves a pace of grace and greatness alike… and celebrating the work of educators.

It will explore mindfulness in cool and real and engaging ways; not unlike a mini summer camp for educators where we can explore the kid in us again.

4. SPEAKING SERVICES
Conferences, Keynotes and Breakouts
Let’s talk about diverseCITIES™. This is our Epic School keynote and breakout work. It is our youth leadership and mentorship work. We recognize that colleges, schools and youth centers are highly diverse communities. Center, school and campus life can be incredible… and incredibly diverse. That is real. That is cool. Diversity is a strategic and powerful advantage in nature, work and life; and on campus. diverseCITIES™ is designed for youth and educators at school and college who are engaging diversity in the classroom and beyond. We get real… and practical; responding to and embracing the advantages and coolness of diversity. This session work is an experience of leadership and empowerment around the challenges and opportunities of diversity; and is fun. Oh, it is fun!
The session can be a PD model for teachers or run for students, or both. It identifies an approach to engagement that is a hybrid of methodology and art. The material has the intent to build on both personal and campus success; with real world application. Bottom line… it gets us getting it… moving forward together, stronger.
6. The CLASSroom™
Officially launching in the Fall of 2019, The CLASSroom™ essentially are random acts of speaking to youth in schools, no fee. Barry speaks to the heroic in us all. He speaks to together, strong… and he connects. Oh, does he ever connect! Arranged where schedule permitting, this is a pure labour of love for Barry. Interested? For more information, connect HERE.
Through it all, our work is character driven and fun. We call it joyful excellence. We offer keynotes, seminars, workshops, development days, programs and courses in support of youth and educators and youth leaders. We engage speaking, dialoguing, singing, dancing, music, cartooning, video, art and gaming.
