For over a decade, people have allowed themselves to be inspired and motivated by the words of Mr. Aric Jackson. His mission is to Teach, Inspire, and Encourage all those who hear him, and to take the challenge of helping others pursue their goals and dreams.
What began as passionate poetry designed to uplift the spirit has turned into the pursuit of effecting attitudes and changing conventional thought. A charismatic and genuinely heartfelt communicator, Aric truly electrifies an audience.
After realizing how effected his audiences were by the poetry he would share, Aric began to feel the tug of moving to the next level with his words. Selected as "Best New Speaker" in 2000 by the Chicago Chapter of the International Speech Organization, Toastmasters, this recognition made him realize how much he wanted to pursue this and how much a void needed to be filled with students, youth, and grownups across America.
Watching him speak on stage helps you realize why he is such a unique and gifted orator. For it takes a genuine speaker to present information with shared experience, passion to research a topic much deeper, and to share that information with the audience using skills that will make it a memorable and exciting experience for all.
Aric has he served as the Keynote Speaker for such organizations as Future Business Leaders of America, Health Occupation Students Association, DECA,FCCLA, National Association of Secondary School Principals LEAD Conferences, and many Statewide Student Council Conferences across the country, plus his message has been televised in over 65 countries.
