Hi, I’m Kim Strobel.
I’ve had the honor of serving hundreds of thousands of teachers, administrators, superintendents, and students around the world, partnering with organizations like The United Nations Global Happiness Summit, The Google Education Summit, Florida, Indiana, and North Carolina Superintendent's Conference, and The Stem (Science Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Conference.
When I’m on stage, I’m not just a keynote speaker, I’m a happiness coach.
I get raw and real – sharing stories of how I’ve navigated stress, conflict, and burnout. Then I show you the eye-opening research that reveals the lasting impact the habits I practice and teach can have on our personal and professional lives.
My goal is to not only captivate the hearts and minds of your audience, but also give them simple and practical tools to reclaim happiness, ignite their passion, and teach with purpose.
Whether your event is hosting thousands of people in an auditorium or online with a virtual platform, I’d love to talk with you about how I can serve your organization.
