Why Should Hire Tom Thelen

  • 1. TOP YOUTH SPEAKER

  • Tom Thelen, author of Victimproof, has spoken at over 500 schools, conferences, and universities. Many principals have described him as the best speaker they’ve ever had. After each presentation, students follow Tom on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, posting positive messages and thanking him for coming to their school.
  • 2. 100% POSITIVE MESSAGE

    Tom was never into drugs or drinking, so his message doesn’t come from a negative perspective. Instead, he shows students how one teacher stepped in and helped him break free from the victim mindset. Through her guidance, he learned how to make positive choices and build strong character.

  • 3. BEST FOLLOW-UP PROGRAM

    Tom has the most comprehensive follow-up program of any national youth speaker today. At the end of his speech, every student receives a digital download card with access to his Victimproof Ebook, and each school gets a free copy of the 30-Part Victimproof Video Curriculum DVD that accompanies the book. This serves as a 12-month follow-up program for students. Preview it at Victimproof.org.

  • 4. EMPOWERING STUDENTS

    Rather than the typical “Don’t be a bully!” message, Tom shows students how to make a positive impact on their school culture. His message captivates students with stories that touch the heart and make them laugh. Tom ends the speech with a challenge for every student to BE THE CHANGE!

  • 5. SCHOOL PARTNERSHIP

    Tom’s goal is to strengthen the existing message of the school. Each booking includes a conference call to plan the event. Tom can also customize his speech to include the school’s themes or mottos. His program includes customizable posters, press releases, and parent announcements, making it easy to promote.
