Keynotes that Hit the Right Note

Keynotes with Legacy Project Co-Founder Susan V. Bosak
Susan's grandmother taught her to always think before she speaks. As a result, when Susan does speak, it's both thoughtful and thought-provoking.

She's real. She can also be funny, poignant, and inspirational. With 20 years of experience, Susan connects with people one-on-one, and in groups large and small. She knows the right ingredients for an effective keynote, mixing broad research with evocative storytelling.

Susan V. Bosak is the Founder of the Legacy Project, a social researcher and changemaker, educator and bestselling author (check out her award-winning books Dream and A Little Something). She is the creative and intellectual force behind the YOU 177 social innovation initiative.

Susan does big-picture presentations on what she describes in her TEDx Talk as a 7-Generation World. Susan's 7-Generation work is about creating a more human story, using #ChangeTheStory. She'll take you on a rollercoaster ride of ideas and insights.

Susan customizes every keynote to her audience. Susan's research and education work connects the dots across broad themes – human development, life course and aging, health and wellbeing, education and lifelong learning, community building, intergenerational, communication, literacy, design, history, philosophy, science and ecology.

Workshops that Inform and Inspire

Workshops with researcher, educator, bestselling author Susan V. Bosak
When you spend time with educator, researcher, author, and Legacy Project Founder Susan V. Bosak, you leave with transformative connections and insights.

Join Susan around the Legacy Table at The Cedars for 7-Generation workshops and grandparent/grandchild Dream Days, as well as Dot Dinners/Lunches (as in "connect the dots").

Susan also does a lot of conference presentations, as well as professional development workshops with educators. She consistently gets enthusiastic reviews as "one of the best speakers we've brought in." Her workshops combine practical information with inspiration in areas from literacy to systems thinking, all based on a unique LegacyCubed perspective.

Recent comments from teachers about the Legacy Project's workshops: "wonderful learning tools for literacy and life"; "you can tell Susan is passionate about what she does – you feel the energy in the room"; "LegacyCubed is a great way to bring the big picture into your classroom"; and "enough ideas and inspiration for the rest of this school year and the next."

Susan combines practical, classroom-tested ideas with research-based insights, and mixes in some fun and inspiration. She has spoken at educational conferences across the country, and has been interviewed on radio and TV, including Weekend Today in New York. She can speak to large and small groups, teachers and support staff.

Many of Susan's PD education workshops are inspired by her award-winning bestseller Dream. She can tailor the workshop to your needs and goals, including making cross-curricular connections. The Dream book is being used by teachers from elementary to high school who work in areas like language arts (the book supports the Standards for the English Language Arts), social studies (the book supports the NCSS Standards for helping students understand themselves and the world around them – individual development and identity, time, continuity, change, society/culture), character education, counseling, family/life studies, art, and gifted and ESL programs.

From a motivational reading of Dream that can re-energize teachers and help them connect with their teaching goals to practical tips to help "make teaching a dream," Susan encourages teachers to see beyond "what is" to "what can be."

"I want teachers to understand where they are and build on that," says Susan. "They need to investigate their own questions, live and experiment with their answers, and pose new questions to keep growing as individuals and as professionals. In a truly effective workshop experience, teachers need to create satisfying connections between educational goals and the immediate experience of their classroom and who they are."

As part of a professional development workshop, we can make the Dream book available at a quantity discount. Many schools/districts make Dream a year-long theme. Every teacher can get a copy of the book as personal inspiration and as a resource for their classroom. A PD workshop can also be supported by a school presentation with students.

Susan has also completed a 3-hour How To Teach Literacy Like a Dream DVD PD video. It includes classroom-tested ideas for student text and visual literacy along with life planning and goal setting. You can use the DVD to preview the workshop, or view it with a group during your own professional development session.
