OUR ABI ALL STAR ANTI-BULLYING SPEAKERS SHARE THE FOLLOWING PERFORMANCE IMPACTS IN COMMON…
Never hire a speaker that you have not seen in front of an audience! You can know for sure if your speaker is right for your students when you watch them on video in front of other students! Many speakers have clever websites and/or show themselves being interviewed! The experienced speakers capture footage while they are speaking in front of their audience.
"The others tell you how good they are. We show you!" Peggi, ABI Speakers' Bureau Director.
Thanks for visiting the ABI Speakers’ Bureau!

Born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Shamiel Gary lived his dream as a professional football player in the National Football League, but the road to the NFL wasn’t easy. Shamiel faced obstacles from every direction. It took hard work and perseverance to bring his 3rd-grade dream to life.. As a senior at Booker T. Washington High School, Shamiel had coaches who didn’t believe in him. After the state championship, he received his only football scholarship from the University of Wyoming. During his freshman season at Wyoming, he won the 5A State Championship and earned Freshman All-American. At the end of his sophomore season, Shamiel transferred to Oklahoma State University to be closer to his family while his grandmother battled Alzheimer’s disease. In a single season, he went from being an Al-American Safety to spending the 2011 season on the sidelines due to NCAA transfer rules. h 2012, Shamiel hit the football field in full force. He started every game for the Cowboys, recording 72 tackles, 6 passes defended, 3 interceptions, and 1 forced fumble. As a senior, his pace continued, and the Cowboys placed 2nd in the Big 12 Conference.
