Robert’s Story (A Heartwarming Bike Build Success)


“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” -Margaret Mead

Over the years, our nationwide team of facilitators has led over a thousand Bike Build Donation programs, and no matter how hectic or calm the event itself, one moment never ceases to amaze us (as well as all the teams present).  Every single time kids come running in, ready to claim the bicycles that were just built for them, it is simultaneously heartwarming, beautiful, and loud!  Sometimes the story of a single bike recipient gets to us through the noise, however, and this is one we’d like to share with you.


Robert is an only child, quiet and studious.  He’s had to grow up fast; both his parents are disabled and the family is struggling financially due to medical bills.  “When we took the bike over to Robert,” said our client, “he was so excited and a bit stunned.” Robert never expected such a gift, or in fact any gift at all.  “His parents are so appreciative as they can’t get out and do things with him as much and they can’t wait for him to have a little bit of freedom with the bike,” we were told.  No matter how many team building events we have led, brightening the lives of others through our Corporate Social Responsibility programs remains one of our greatest honors.

      What is a Keynote Speaker?

      Keynote Speaker is an often-misunderstood term associated with simply a motivational speaker, breakout speaker, industry expert, etc. Most professional speakers are not actual trained Keynote Speakers, who are specialists, therefore in much lower supply, and in higher demand.

      Keynote Speakers are experienced, professional communicators who engage an audience, capturing the essence of a client’s meeting. They are able to highlight it to their audience while simultaneously delivering their own key concepts and proprietary content in an entertaining and impactful way. Most companies understand that this specialization is very much worth the time (around an hour) and the investment.

      In order to capture the perfect essence, a Keynote Speaker spends the necessary time researching a client’s industry, their issues, and their audience to craft a customized presentation into a unique and distinctive moment specifically for the client’s event.

      As a top Keynote Speaker, Tom Leu strategically uses compelling storytelling, humor, powerful visuals, audio and video clips, and audience participation elements to weave an impactful message into your event in a fun and memorable way. Tom can also pair his Keynote with Best Corporate Events programming, laying a foundation and setting a tone that best prepares participants for maximum engagement in the forthcoming team events that day.
