Utah Motivational Speaker, Bob Kittell is Calming Young Minds

Bob Kittell Speaking

Utah motivational speaker, Bob Kittell is addressing a growing concern among school counselors, principals and parents; anxiety due to smartphone addiction in young students.

In a day and age where the suicide, addictive behaviors and anxiety in the teen population is increasing, Bob’s message is one of hope, realistic evaluation and constructive tools that work. His interconnecting presentation and experience helps students open up to the awareness of the addictive properties of the smartphone and social media, creating an inspiring and fun alternative for communication and connection.

Calming Young Minds Through Authentic Connection
and Deep Listening

Bob recently spoke to the students of Lakeridge Junior High in Orem, Utah for the 11th year in a row. Separately, he asked the counselors and the Principal the following questions:

  • Is anxiety rampant throughout your school?
  • Do kids line up 20 minutes after school starts at the counselor’s office with anxiety?
  • Are you putting out more fires of behavioral issues than ever before?
  • Do you think it has something to do with smartphone addiction?

Bob is visiting high schools in Utah with a powerful message for teens.

What do Likes, Snapchat streaks, Scroll down, Notifications and such actually do to the teen psyche?
Bob is helping teens:

  • Identify what anxiety and depression are; and how to connect and not suffer silently.
  • Experience deep listening and human connection – and discover how that looks and feels differently than electronic connection.
  • Be inspired in their own authenticity and step from behind the mask of “everything is just fine.”
  • Increase understanding and awareness of what fellow students may be going through and instill an available willingness to help.

It’s one thing to know a concept and teach it but as any good educator knows, it’s a gift to be able to disseminate information in a way that inspires the listener to take right action in making improvements in their own lives. Bob is one of those gifted Utah motivational speakers.

Some of the material that Bob Kittell shares is based on research and information coming from the very folks who make smartphones and the apps we use.

This Utah motivational speaker has the personal experience of moving past depression, panic and anxiety. Bob now consults with mental health professionals and medical doctors, businesses and schools regarding this journey from Panic to Peace.

His Train the Teacher experience is uniquely empowering for the teachers and administrators on the front line.

Currently touring with Tony Robbins, Bob Kittell is a master presenter – another supportive voice from outside your school.  He has spoken live to over five million people, including hundreds of schools and universities, worldwide.

Bob’s message can be shared with the whole school or smaller groups.
