Speaking to Students About Leadership
As the son of a Mexican mother and a recognized leader in the Hispanic community, George P. Bush understands the fact that the dynamics of race in America are changing dramatically. Over the next few decades, our nation will shift to a minority-driven society. Credited with encouraging a historic number of people in the Latino community to vote in the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections, Bush provides a personal perspective on how these shifts create challenges and opportunities for everyone in this highly informative presentation.
What does public service mean to us as Americans in the present day? In this riveting, thought-provoking speech, George P. Bush shares his personal story of how he came to embrace a life of public service. He draws on the example given to him by his grandfather, 41st President of the United States George H.W. Bush, whom he calls the finest example of public service he has ever known. Bush takes audiences on a journey from the World War II generation—which pursued service without question—through the 9/11 generation—which has involved itself voluntarily in military service, is applying to “three letter agencies” at record highs, and is actively involved in such service pursuits as Teach for America and the Peace Corps.
"George did an excellent job yesterday. We had a great turnout. He was very engaging and approachable and we have heard nothing but positive remarks. We are particularly grateful for his encouraging words to the students in our education program. George left a lasting impression on the students that participated in the forum and motivated each and every one of them to continue their educational journey and give back to the community that is helping shape their future. We are very happy with how it all turned out. George did a fantastic job! Thank you also for all you did to make this happen. We are grateful for your involvement."
"We had some hesitation to have George P. Bush at our University Convocation; our fear was it would be heavy with political messaging. Our fears where alleviated within minutes of meeting Mr. Bush. The direction in which he went with his keynote address was spot on and inspired our students as they began their academic careers. I would recommend American Program Bureau speakers to anyone, as the speakers and staff are top notch. They truly care about the outcome of your event."
