Marc Will Help Your Audience…

Free themselves from old beliefs…

Getting a new sense of the “future possible.” It means looking BEYOND the technologies and toys to their positive use.  It is being willing to accept new paradigms and perspectives — about yourself, about adults, about kids, about society

…Listen More Carefully to Their kids and to Youth Generally…

The prime way Marc “sees BEYOND…”  is through his contacts with kids and youth. Marc is especially good at is talking with kids, and eliciting their profoundest ideas—which are many, and good. One of Marc’s central observations is how badly we (mostly unconsciously) treat our kids — we disrespect them, under-appreciate them and truly under-estimate what they

WE think we listen — but THEY think we don’t.

…and see the same things in Very New Ways

People can see thngs that look the same, and  not realize they are now different.
A prime example is our kids. It is time we see them differently, as the empowered people they now are.
