YOUTH SPEAKER, TEEN EDUCATOR, (SELF-PROCLAIMED) GENIUS
Pop culture-referencing, Facebook-poking, teen advice whiz Scott Backovich is making a significant impact on tens of thousands of students in audiences around the United States and Canada.
Witty by nature, caring at heart: for youth speaker Scott Backovich, this is merely the tip of the iceberg. Scott’s quirky yet powerful style and message speak to students at their own level, helping them to understand the true potential they hold.
Scott recognizes the monotonous cycle that students can undoubtedly fall into while in high school. After spotting the pattern during his own sophomore year, he decided to be bold and make a change. By the age of 21, Scott had presented to thousands of students, appeared as a guest on international radio and student leadership podcasts, and had gained positive recognition around the United States for his compelling message.
As someone still in his 20‘s, Scott realizes that students today need to be reached in new and innovative ways. From cell phones to Twitter updates, Facebook to YouTube, teens have both grown up in and created a culture that has redefined what it means to connect. Scott understands. He has dedicated his life to connecting with and empowering students everywhere. On any given day, he can be found not only speaking on stages around North America, but also reaching out to teens on various student-based sites. For Scott, it’s not about talking at students; it’s about connecting with them where they are.
“Those bad things that have happened to you, that baggage that you have? It does NOT define you. How you choose to grow from it, will.”
Today, Scott resides in Southern California amongst friends and family, who inspire him daily. When not speaking onstage, he can be found exploring Disneyland, relaxing with friends, or wrapping up in a warm Snuggie (yes, we’re talking about the blanket with sleeves)

EXCITING, PASSIONATE, REAL.
A native to Imperial, Nebraska, Mike has been speaking professionally for the last 5 years and has been a youth outreach worker for over 10 years. He is the founder and executive director of a 501c3 non-profit in THE BAY and its offshoot, Skate For Change (SFC), both of which have begun to receive national acclaim and support from the likes of Red Bull and State Farm. This past summer, Mike also embarked on his second annual mission of skateboarding across the entire state of Nebraska to raise money for these causes.
Today, Mike spends his days expanding the scope of these ventures. Currently, he is finishing up construction on a 28,000 square-foot facility in Lincoln that will serve as the headquarters for THE BAY and SFC, containing an indoor skatepark, a coffee shop, an art gallery, and a concert venue for local youth to utilize until as late as 2 A.M. on the weekends. Mike has also been traveling the region with his skateboard in tow to help spread SFC to cities like Omaha, Kansas City, Chicago, Cleveland, and the rest of the country. His aim is to one day spread this concept to skateboarders across the world.

THE SPEAKER FOR THE DREAMER
For over 10 years, Speaker and Performing Artist, Shaun Derik, has dedicated his life to helping people, young and old, reconnect with their passion and go after their dreams. Through his dynamic message delivery, which is a blend of music and comedy, audience members leave Shaun’s presentations feeling motivated and energized; as a result are encouraged to take massive steps towards the achievement of their life-long goals.
Shaun learned early about the power of a mentor and having that positive reinforcement of someone else’s feedback. Shaun struggled through his grade school years, and like so many young people, developed a low self-esteem and turned to music as an outlet for his emotions. Frequently Shaun would stay behind after school ended, sneak into the music room and play the piano. One day the music teacher heard Shaun playing the piano; he let Shaun finish his piece and then came into the room and gave, what Shaun refers to as, “the greatest gift of all” a compliment that forever changed Shaun’s life. As the “Speaker for the Dreamer” Shaun represents that support system needed to be triumphant and truly believes that with hard work and consistency, anything is possible!
Throughout grade school, Shaun studied dance and theater and after high school immersed himself into arts and entertainment industry, landing several commercials and producing his own stage plays. It wasn’t until enrolling in a public speaking course in college that he found his calling. “I knew nothing would ever give me more joy than encouraging people through the power of communication.” So, that is what he set out to do and has not looked back!
Shaun moved to New York City and founded Dreamsong, a production company designed to deliver inspirational and relevant content for today’s dreamer. His most recent projects include the audio series, “Dreams & Detours” and the reality web-series “JourneyMe.”
