Bostick is considered among the nation’s leading motivational speakers and success trainers – having inspired and equipped more than a half million people from all walks of life to believe in themselves by setting higher goals and achieving more fulfilling dreams.

According to Christy Tidwell, Coordinator of Professional Development & Continuous Improvement, “Aric passionately infuses energy, engagement and performance into the workplace and beyond—by delivering rich content with humor, inspiration and practical strategies in his high-energy, world-class keynotes, training seminars and educational programs.”

Bostick was a High School Teacher and Coach who now inspires and trains educators to find their purpose once again by reminding them why they answered the call to work with youth. His keynote is expected to transform staff into an army of HEROES that will make a difference with each and every student!

After experiencing his own setbacks, Aric’s personal and professional mission became to guide others in overcoming their own personal stories—using their experiences to ignite greater achievement and happiness. Bostick states, “My philosophy is simple. “When you change your ‘HAVE TO’ to ‘GET TO’ life and work get better in a hurry! We owe it to others and ourselves to live and give to the fullest!”

As the bestselling author of the book, FIRED UP! Success, Aric teaches his winning seven-step formula for educators and staff to experience success in their schools and beyond—starting wherever they are to build a no-excuses, high-energy path to their goals. He shows you how to maximize your school’s performance, productivity and customer service excellence!
