Over the past 6 years, Empact has facilitated nearly 1,000 speeches at over 500 events at colleges & universities, workforce development organizations, associations, corporations and Small Busines Development centers as part of the Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour and as independent keynote speakers across the world:

  • United States

  • Mexico
  • U.A.E.
Empact has developed an expertise in what makes an entrepreneurship event successful as well as how entrepreneurs can leverage speaking engagements to develop and build their legacy and business.

Empact Sphere Members will receive one-on-one training on how to best deliver their message and become a powerful and sought after speaker. (Those attending the Empact Legacy Day in conjunction with the Empact100 recognition event in Washington DC got a taste of this during Arel Moodie's presentation.)

Young entrepreneurs sit on panel for US Chamber of Commerce. The panel was introduced by former Secretary of Education, Margaret Spellings, and preceded by Steve Forbes.   Duane Spires, Founder of Extreme Youth Sports, speaks in a stadium to over 2,000 youth.   Jeremy Johnson, Founder of 2U, speaks after five congressmen and one senator on Capitol Hill.   Young entrepreneurs sit on panel for California Governors Summit on Entrepreneurship following remarks by Governor Schwarzenegger.

Empact connects interested Members of Sphere with organizations throughout its network for speaking opportunities that become available. Entrepreneurs will be matched based on audience composition, the entrepreneur's goals and the host's goals. Sphere members will be introduced to colleges / universities as expert speakers on entrepreneurship, success and making an impact on the world that their students can relate to.

Prior to connecting with speaking opportunities, Empact will work with you to determine your speaking goals.


Some of your goals may include:

  • Giving back your time as a philanthropist
  • Building your brand
  • Earning money
  • Becoming a more powerful communicator
Speaking opportunities will be available in the form of stand-alone keynotes as well as keynotes that are part of larger events and Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour or events that are independently organized by our international partners.
