Collegiate Speaker


As a former coach and athletics director, I understand the tendency to emphasize the physical aspect of players and their performance while overlooking the critical importance of their mental well-being. By recognizing the significance of investing in your players’ Emotional Intelligence (EQ), you can unlock their full potential and elevate their overall performance in their respective sports. Together, let’s prioritize their mental well-being to enhance their success both on and off the field.

"Jeremiah’s session on transitioning into college for our freshmen was incredible. I believe Jeremiah's story and his wealth of knowledge truly impacted our first year students to start off on the right foot. I have never gotten as much positive feedback as I have after a speaker has come to campus like I have for Jeremiah."
