Virtual Keynote for Colleges

It’s a weird year to be a college student for so many reasons. But one is that students are missing the in-person events that usually unite them throughout their college experience.

If you’re looking for ways to connect and engage students in this unconventional climate and bring variety to online education,  you’re in the right place. 

After consulting with student activities experts across the nation, Curtis Zimmerman has turned his acclaimed keynote program into a hybrid experience that is unlike anything else on the market.

What is this “hybrid experience,” you ask? The keynote (which is specifically geared toward college students) is a state-of-the-art, professionally recorded performance in an empty auditorium, so it’s like Curtis is talking directly to you. Learn more in this video:


It’s a turn-key solution that can be shared to a virtual audience or to small groups of students, on campus or off campus, and it’s completely flexible based on your needs. (That means it has the quality of a live keynote, but is delivered as a file that you own so that you can use it in a myriad of capacities!)

About Curtis Zimmerman, Nationally-Recognized Keynote Speaker and Bestselling Author


At heart, Curtis is a champion of college students and university administrators, having worked with higher-education for the past twenty years. He is the co-author of the book, Keys to Success in College and Life, and his high-energy, inspiring program “Living Life at Performance Level” has been in top demand on college campuses. He’s spoken at over a thousand colleges and universities across the country! And he makes a big impact—the senior class of one school even named their senior gift scholarship “The Living the Dream Scholarship,” after his program! Curtis’ keynote will touch hearts and give students the tools to embrace change and make the most of their college experience, even if it looks different than they had imagined.




Here’s what the program includes:

  • A 40-minute, full-length, keynote presentation 
  • Or, two twenty-minute segments so that you have ultimate flexibility for delivery
  • An Orientation Leader Video and Guide to facilitate group discussion for in-person or virtual connections
  • Pre-calls with Curtis to clarify messaging and objectives
  • Customized opening segment to speak directly to the students at your university (And when we say customized, we mean it! Send us swag and Curtis will be sporting your colors and logo.)
  • Personal reflection questions for students to use on their own
  • Option for SWAG (stickers, posters, post-its) to remind students of the message—pictured below

What administrators are saying about it:


“WOW! You hit this out of the park! I am so pleased with all of this! The facilitator Guide is absolutely fantastic! I just cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am!”

-Sarah Allen, Director of Campus Involvement, Mercyhurst University
