Nationally recognized speaker and empowerment coach, Shaun Derik has dedicated his life to the betterment of young people for more than a decade. Affectionately known as “The Speaker for the Dreamer,” his message is genre resistant and addresses the key components necessary for the success of the 21st century student.
His blend of motivation, comedy, live music and dance gives Shaun an uncommon edge, making him a competitor in the world of youth engagement. Students deemed to be disruptive, unreachable, or simply unengaged have benefited from his unique approach to teaching.
Shaun was once a struggling student barely able to pass any of his classes. His relationship with a caring teacher who noticed his musical talent would teach Derik the importance of encouragement and hard work. It was then that he learned, “Success doesn’t happen on accident… It happens on purpose.”
