Cross The Line

Inspire commitment & resilience

With everything, there's a line. On one side of the line is a greater chance to make good things happen (better results, better relationships, more opportunities). On the other side of the line, there's less of a chance. This message is about making the choice to Commit, Work Hard, Focus, and Bounce Back.

Welcome and inspire with a keynote

Orientation is an opportunity ... an opportunity to connect, to learn, to encourage, and to inspire.

Set an inspiring tone with your incoming freshmen class, orientation team or new students by kicking off or closing your event with a keynote from Sam Parker, the author of these messages.

Remember ... the experience is what creates the bigger, longer-lasting impact.

Sam, thank you so much for your wonderful presentation. It exceeded all of my expectations. Participants raved about you, your style, and the content. Thank you for being an ambassador of positivity and goodness.

Dr. Mark Warner, Senior Vice President,
