Keynote Speaker

j osmond keynote speaker

Justin Osmond will speak on Wednesday, June 20th

Justin Osmond has led an extraordinary life and found himself learning vital lessons from his unique circumstances. Growing up with a 90% hearing loss is hard for anyone, but being the son of Merrill Osmond, the lead singer of the world-renowned Osmond Family, made deafness an even bigger challenge for him.

Despite living with a profound hearing loss and even after being told by teachers and professionals that he would never play a musical instrument, he went on to play the violin, viola, piano, and drums. He has received numerous awards such as the prestigious sterling scholarship in music, academic scholarships, honorary achievements, and many athletic titles in soccer, football, basketball, and track.

Justin has a unique ability to capture and captivate his audience with stories calling on reserves of courage, determination and self-belief in order to succeed and sometimes to simply survive. He offers his audience an extraordinary experience by sharing life lessons and translating his life experiences into an entertaining and motivational keynote.

Learn more about Justin’s story.

I loved EVERYTHING!! I really enjoyed the movement break and huddle examples.

The best part of Summer Institute was the relationship building and constantly interacting and growing from peers.

Ashley ToddCampus Coordinator, ILTexas, North Richland Hills

My favorite topic was growth mindset. Very applicable to my position as Dean. Growth mindset will be a very large focus for my interactions with students next year.

Matt BiglerDean of Students, Athlos Academy of St. Cloud

Every person, yes every person, was a positive person and wanted to learn more or was willing to share their knowledge.
