Angela Maiers is considered one of today’s most influential thought leaders in education and transformative thinking. It is fair to say when she speaks, she leaves no room unchanged.

She has been praised by leaders in business, the military, and administrators of schools of every level from elementary to graduate, around the globe for the life-changing, world-changing impact she has had on the hundreds of thousands of lives with whom she has reached with her message of Mattering.

Most recently, she has been named by Forbes as one of the Top 5 Edupreneurs to Watch; by IBM as one of the Top 20 Global Influencers, among the Top 100 Women in Technology by Onalytics, and among the Top 20 Education Thought Leaders by TrustEd. She is the author of 9 books on education, including the noted Genius Matters and Classroom Habitudes, and was for many years a prolific contributor to the Huffington Post on innovation, technology, and education.

A much sought-after speaker at conferences, organizations, schools and communities around the globe, Angela’s singular focus is on transforming the people she reaches to set in motion a change of behaviors and perspectives that will draw out the potential in every person and result in a positive impact on the world. She describes her transformative message and methods as common sense put it into common practice, though deeply-grounded in science.

An educator for 30 years, Angela's work in 78,000 classrooms across 100 countries has rallied more than a million children who have banded together to launch 170 social enterprises and pass 17 laws. In 2011, she gave a TEDTalk on the power of two simple words: You Matter, and the video went viral. What resulted was the start of a movement which became the global non-profit organization, Choose2Matter. As its Founder, Angela’s mission is to help individuals recognize their value and potential contribution to change both their own lives and the world.

With her background in education and neuroscience, she initially sought to challenge and inspire students to work collaboratively to develop innovative solutions to social problems. In recent years, Choose2Matter has evolved into a movement that supports parents, educators, employees, and members of the military everywhere. As a result of her work, organizations across all industries are finding new ways to ignite the genius of their employees, successfully addressing a $15 trillion employee engagement problem.

Futurist. Innovator. Educator. Entrepreneur. Change Maker. Angela Maiers is on a mission to disrupt the status quo and to empower every individual to change their own world, if not the world around them, for the better.

Angela earned a Bachelor of Science in Education and a minor in Neuroscience from the University of Iowa and completed her graduate and post-graduate work at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. Angela holds two master's degrees in Literacy and Ed Leadership and today lives in Denver, Colorado.

Mattering IS the Agenda

Mattering in not just an agenda reserved for special days and special occasions. Mattering IS the agenda. Insignificance is the single most common ailment of the modern world and does not discriminate by age, title, or position...The impact of insignificance holds true whether you are a brand fighting for a place in the market or you are a person fighting for your place in the world.

Mattering is as essential to our life, work and well being as is food, water, shelter, and air. Angela explores how to take these common-sense principles and turn them into commonplace and common practice - with frameworks grounded in neuroscience, and proven by 31 years of practice. Be prepared to be transformed.


How Big Is Your Brave?

There is no doubt bravery is needed to lead and succeed. For centuries bravery has been a crucible of leadership and a fundamental principle for battle of any type and kind.

But, what does BRAVE look like?

How does BRAVE act and behave?

And most importantly how big can YOUR BRAVE be?

This presentation seeks to answer these questions by putting these elusive concepts of leadership and learning in place to deliver better results faster for you and to those you seek to lead and serve.


Closing the Passion Gap  

Passion matters. Passion makes us curious, compels us to dig deeper, and sustains us as we persevere towards answers to questions that matter most; bridging the gap between what exists and what is possible with PASSION...in the work we do every day, education, in our own lives and in the world.

This session gives an enlightening and insightful look at passion’s place in leadership, learning, and both the office environment and in classroom success.

You will discover how to leverage the power of passion to achieve the extraordinary results with your colleagues, staff, students, or members of your leadership community.


Getting TECH/Social Media R.I.G.H.T

There is no individual or organization that wants to waste time, engage in unproductive actions, or test out 101 new platforms and apps. WE WANT TO GET IT RIGHT!


Literacy Re-Imagined

Life changes when we become literate. Our entry into the "literacy club" affords us power and privilege that is unprecedented, and so we present the idea of literacy...to teachers and students as a "set of skills" to be mastered. 

New "literacies" do not make past literacy obsolete but will require a new look at the way we nurture and teach our future readers and writers. This presentation explores the differences and similarities between literacies of the past and new digital competencies and investigates the challenges new technologies present.

Emerging digital platforms give us new venues in which to assert our right, set forth in the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers


You are a Brand: Would You Pick Yourself? 

Whether it is seeking to excite leaders within your organization about new projects or trying to secure new business contracts, it's important that you bring your best version of yourself and your business to the process. It begins with one requirement. You must first value yourself and understand your worthiness...

Setting yourself up for success involves a few key steps that will better position you to win business and make the most of the contacts you have to build authentic relationships that can lead to new business opportunities.

Angela Maiers shares what steps to take as a professional and business owner to be a business that is worthy of being picked. Gain an understanding of what you need to do to enhance business relationships and strengthen your networking strategies.


Creating Magic for Your Community and Your Customers

MAGIC is when your customers trust you enough to allow you to change their story. Learn about the five necessary mind shifts in how you approach the selling process. 

Grounded in science, these practical changes are needed to shift your relationship a more-human based one and increase success with customers and prospects. It’s a powerful and transformative strategy of taking common sense and putting it into common practice to not only compete in the marketplace but eliminate the competition.
