“Because of the growing interest in circus life this week from the movie premiere of 'Water for Elephants,' Latino Speakers, the nation’s oldest Hispanic speakers bureau has found clients seeking to book 'Giant Lessons' for their corporate diversity and educator conferences and I feel this will be one of the most talked about and booked conferences this fall,” said Leonor McCall-Rodriguez, president of Latino Speakers Bureau and Best Keynotes.
“Giant Lessons: The Story of Jake, the Giant,” by Dr. Andy Erlich, explores lessons from the life of Texan giant, Jake, along his personal journey on a path from the negative perceptions of others that initially held him back to the world of the circus, fame, and success. This is the platform of the latest keynote by Andy Erlich, captivating audiences with the world of Ringling Bros Barnum & Bailey, silent films, and the meaning of diversity from the perspective of a man who stood taller than others. The motivational keynote includes footage of some of Erlich's silent films, vintage photographs, footage from a PBS documentary, and a magic prop which opens to present a life size image of this giant of a man. Jake Erlich was also a painter, poet, and author of "The Long Shadows."
“Jake, the Giant”, is available in inspirational keynote as, “Freeing the Giant,” as well as the program, “Special Needs, Special Kids,” where Dr. Andy offers practical parenting support for Hispanic parents of autistic youth, and Latino children with disabilities and special needs. With a warm, insightful, and caring perspective, Dr. Andy Erlich uses the remarkable story of the real life giant, his Uncle Jake to discuss perceptions of differences in our society. He explores psychological topics such as the strengths in Latino culture and their importance; the role of anxiety in parents and children, and the all important power of resiliency. This program also discusses topics of behavior, mental and emotional health needs, including challenging behaviors and the role of positive reinforcements.
