Joseph Tran – Win Stuff From Anywhere Game Show

I’ve spent three years honing THE WIN STUFF FROM ANYWHERE GAME SHOW — the groundbreaking virtual experience that got students engaged and connected during lock-down. Then, I pioneered a live/hybrid version that delivered the energy and fun that you expect from me. And now, I have the #1 most booked game show on the market.

This show slaps and delivers:
– a live experience that gets students out of their rooms, engaging with peers and making memories
– high production quality that exceeds expectations
– infinitely tiktokable moments, thanks to lightning-fast pacing and spontaneity that can only come from host Joseph Tran

Frank King- Make a Difference and Save a Life

A former writer for The Tonight Show and 7-time TEDx Talker, Frank King uses his life-long personal battles as his vehicle for ending stress, anxiety, and suicide on campus. His keynote is tailored to the factors faced by students: 63% in the USA said they faced overwhelming anxiety in 2018, with the pandemic spiking that further. The majority of students experience it, and this strongly correlates with suicidal thoughts, ideation, and actions—1100 college students die by suicide annually.

Frank’s keynote begins with signs and symptoms, followed by solutions, and wraps with postvention. He can speak to students at-large or breakout sessions customized for higher-risk campus communities. Build a lasting impact on-campus by certifying RAs, faculty, and staff with a Train the Trainer workshop.
