Keynote Speaker
Aric Bostick is considered among the nation’s leading educational motivational speakers and school transformational experts—having inspired and equipped more than a half million students, teachers, and parents from all socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds helping them to create a climate and culture of togetherness. Teaching them to believe in themselves and others, inspiring them to overcome their story and set higher goals so they can achieve their dreams in school and in life.

Aric passionately infuses energy, engagement, and performance into the schools environment by delivering rich content infused with humor, inspiration, and practical strategies in his high-energy and inspirational educational keynotes, convocations, student leadership programs, and online training courses.

Aric is a former High School teacher and coach who started an after school program called the Goal Setters Club. The success of his club was featured on local news and morning shows and catapulted him into speaking to schools across the country.

For the past 17 years, Aric has presented at universities, public, private, inner city, rural, charter, alternative schools, and Juvenile Detention Centers from New York City to California and from the top of the Texas Panhandle down to the border of Mexico.

He has also spoken at National and State Education Conferences, the People to People Ambassador Program to students from over 60 countries at universities like Harvard, Stanford, Johns Hopkins, George Washington and UCLA. His travels have even taken him to the Bahamas where he spoke to 100 Bahamian girls at an All Girl Leadership Conference who have endured some of the worst life circumstances imaginable.

As the bestselling author of the book, FIRED UP! Success, Aric teaches his winning seven-step formula for educators and staff to experience success in their schools and beyond—starting wherever they are to build a no-excuse, high-energy path to their goals. Aric helps his audience and readers to reignite their passion for their life’s purpose as a FIRED UP teacher, student, or parent.
