BRING BILL TO YOUR SCHOOL
about the tour
This fall, Bill Coon will take his highly praised and impactful high school presentation on the road, where he will speak to a select number of high schools as part of Bill Coon's Your Legacy Tour!
In his presentation, Bill uses his unique life story of overcoming extreme adversity to teach students the importance leaving behind a lasting, positive legacy in high school. Bill achieves this through his humorous and conversational style that provides students with stories and lessons, which encourage them to care for one another, develop the characteristics of a leader, and strengthen the student body through acts of kindness.
Bill Coon is a two-time heart transplant recipient, kidney recipient, author and professional speaker. Bill has been speaking professionally since 2010. Throughout his career, Bill has delivered hundreds of speeches to a wide array of audiences, ranging from The American Heart Association and the University of Florida to dozens of high schools and youth events.
HOW THIS WORKS
To bring Bill to your school, simply fill out the below form. If selected, you will be contacted by Bill so that the two of you can discuss the needs of your particular student body.
IS BILL EXPECTING A FEE?
No. Normally, Bill receives an honorarium to speak at high schools and youth events, however, on Bill Coon's Your Legacy Tour, all selected schools will receive a complimentary, sixty minute presentation.
HOW IS THE TOUR FUNDED?
The reason only select states can participate is because Bill will already be in town for a corporate event. In turn, Bill will plan his trip accordingly to allow extra time in your state so that he can make an appearance at your school and inspire your students!
WHY IS BILL DOING THIS?
Bill truly loves what he does and he genuinely enjoys motivating high school students. With this in mind, Bill sees his busy fall schedule as an opportunity to work with students whose teachers may not typically bring in an outside speaker, due to financial restrictions or for various other reasons.
HAS BILL PRESENTED TO HIGH SCHOOLS IN THE PAST?
Yes! You can watch the video on this page as an example of the many topics Bill has been hired to discuss with students. You can click here to learn more about his high school & middle school program, watch additional videos and read testimonials from educators.
WILL BILL SPEAK TO BOTH MIDDLE SCHOOLS AND HIGH SCHOOLS ON THIS TOUR?
Yes. However, preference goes to high school audiences. Elementary schools will not be considered.
ARE THERE CERTAIN DATES THAT BILL WILL SPEAK IN MY STATE?
Yes. Please see the below chart for more information.
WILL BILL CUSTOMIZE THE MESSAGE HE DELIVERS TO OUR STUDENTS?
Yes. Bill understands that every school faces different challenges. In turn, every speech on Bill Coon's Your Legacy Tour will be customized to fit each school's needs. Bill will schedule an individual meeting with all selected schools prior to speaking.
WHAT SPEAKING ACCOMMODATIONS DOES BILL NEED TO PRESENT AT A SCHOOL?
Ideally, this event will take place in front of a large audience of 300-500+ students. In turn, Bill asks that schools provide a field house, gymnasium, large cafeteria or a theater for this event. Audio/Visual needs are simple: A handheld microphone (wired or wireless), projector (with projection screen) and a laptop with Microsoft PowerPoint.
DO I NEED TO KEEP THIS A SECRET?
No! Do you have a friend who is also an educator? If so, great! Send your friend this web page, even if they teach at a school outside of the selected states. If enough interest comes from a certain region, the tour could very well find itself making an unexpected stop!
