MEET ROBB HOLLA

Robb Holla’s life story? It’s the kind you’d expect to end up with him either gone too soon or locked away. But, plot twist: he’s now a leading light as an author, speaker, and youth motivator. It’s solid proof that where you start doesn’t lock in where you’ll finish. Growing up was rough for Robb—dealing with a tricky speech impediment, recovering from serious burns as a toddler, and facing down bullies didn’t hold him back. Instead, these challenges pushed him to make a big impact.

Here’s the deal with Robb: he’s got this incredible way of connecting with teenagers. He doesn’t just talk at them; he gets on their level, makes them laugh, and leaves a mark that sticks. They don’t just listen; they remember.

Mr. Holla is more than just a speaker. He is a person who truly understands what it takes to be a leader and the attributes that go along with it. Many times we have professional speakers address our students with mixed results. In the case of Mr. Holladay, our students were so in awe of his message that they lined up after the assembly to speak with him.

AN ENGAGING & DYNAMIC – VAPING, THC, and FENTANYL AWARENESS SPEAKER FOR TEENS

Across the United States, students continue to use tobacco products, with an increasing number moving towards smokeless options. Despite significant efforts by lawmakers and the FDA aimed at regulating electronic vaping devices, the trend of teens adopting these devices marches on, escalating into a serious national health concern.

Additionally, there’s a growing trend of THC usage, the primary component of marijuana, especially as more states legalize its use. This shift contributes to the growing perception among teens that marijuana is a benign, everyday habit.

What’s most concerning in these trends is the spread of misinformation about these substances. Students are making crucial decisions without fully understanding the consequences, misled by myths and inaccuracies. It’s our mission to dismantle these myths by providing accurate, reliable information, empowering students to make informed choices for their futures.

MOST SCHOOLS HAVE TRIED OTHER EDUCATIONAL EFFORTS TO INFLUENCE STUDENTS TO MAKE BETTER CHOICES. SOMETIMES THESE EFFORTS ARE TUNED OUT BY THE STUDENTS. HOWEVER, HAVING A DYNAMIC TOBACCO AND MARIJUANA AWARENESS SPEAKER CAN HELP AND MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE!

This presentation is all about opening your students’ eyes to the real scoop on vaping—the risks, the dangers, and those life-changing consequences they rarely think about. Robb Holla has this cool knack for cutting through the noise, showing students the real deal behind those vaping myths they’ve heard. We start with the risks they might already be wary of, then go way deeper, hitting them with hard-hitting medical studies and jaw-dropping facts they’ve never heard before. It’s all about giving them the full picture so they’re equipped to make smart, informed choices.

Here’s a sneak peek at what we dive into:

  • Crafting a life filled with positive choices
  • The real story behind BIG TOBACCO and VAPING ads versus the hard truths
  • Vaping consequences that’ll make you think twice
  • Unpacking why vaping still seems “cool” to some students
  • The science behind vaping and the big surprises there
  • The huge role of influence and how perceptions are shaped
  • Thinking ahead about how today’s choices shape tomorrow
  • Tips on making choices you won’t regret
  • (And if you’re up for it) The lowdown on teen marijuana use

But here’s the kicker: This isn’t your typical snooze-fest presentation. The moment Robb steps up, your students know they’re in for something different. They’re bracing for another lecture, but what they get is a dynamic, interactive experience that grabs their attention and doesn’t let go. Robb earns their trust, speaks their language, and keeps them hooked from start to finish.

And trust us, they won’t be zoning out.

While we’re dishing out facts and figures, Robb’s unique blend of mind magic and illusions keeps everyone on the edge of their seats. It’s a fresh, engaging way to get those crucial messages across.
