TEDx & Keynote Speaker, Founder of 2017 EdTech of the Year, Lee Taal, was a future paleontologist/football player who’s career path was a complete surprise. A graduate of RRMC, he worked in the Arctic, has medals from the UN & NATO, gave advice to engineers on locomotives, designed advertising at Airports, and now has a mission of getting every student to talk about their future. Today’s teen is overwhelmed with information and, for many the thought of exploring career and post-secondary options is daunting. ChatterHigh Founder Lee Taal uses examples from his unique career path to explain how active exploration contributes to hope in students and how this leads to the critical outcome of becoming adaptable in a constantly changing world. Lee’s talk with educators and students alike is engaging and inspiring and often requested on an annual basis in schools.
