All 2017 New Students (Featured Speaker) – Fall 2017

“Kennedy provided thoughtful and inspiring advice as one of three panelists on our “Many Paths” program for all entering Yale Law students during our orientation.  Having known him as a student, I was not at all surprised that he shared wisdom and stories that were insightful, real, and humorous and that have provided a great foundation for our students as they embark on their legal careers.”

Yale in D.C. and New York (Featured Speaker) – Summer 2016 & 2017

“Kennedy hosted three small group programs for Yale University’s Office of Career Strategy, in which he engaged and challenged our students to rethink many of their preconceived notions of career paths after Yale. Kennedy was an outstanding addition to our summer schedule and we hope he continues to work with Yale to assist students as they cross the bridge from college to career.”

Macaulay Honors Speaker Series (Inaugural Speaker) – Fall 2017

“Kennedy Gachiri is onto something big: the question of what makes people thrive in the environments that they choose to be in. The Superstar Agenda seeks to answer that question through direct examples of the people with whom Kennedy conversed and through his personal story of self-examination and development. He shared his experiential wisdom with the students in the Macaulay Honors College at Hunter College, putting them on a journey of critical thinking of themselves, their careers, and their rightful place in the world. Thinking about the possibilities and what makes you tick is critical to future success and fulfilment. It is a philosophy that Kennedy makes incredibly real.”

Harrison College House Speaker Series – Penn’s Largest Residence With ~800 Students (Featured Speaker) – Fall 2017

“It was wonderful to have Kennedy back at a homecoming of sorts at the University of Pennsylvania. He exhilarated a room full of eager, intelligent, and inquisitive students in literally and metaphorically the same place that he was a short time ago. Kennedy offered a powerful message, encouraging students to be introspective, to attune themselves to their innate creativity, and to connect personal satisfaction with professional aspirations. His words inspired students to listen intently and perhaps to follow the examples set by him and others who are part of his superstar agenda. As an advisor, administrator, and educator, I greatly appreciated that students heard the message that they should do what they love from somebody as successful, uplifting, and insightful as Kennedy. Students would have stayed all night listening to him speak if it were possible.”
