Watch My TED Talk
The # 1 First Year Experience & First Generation Speaker

Your talk was amazing! The students were engaged and interested in your perspective. It brought the empowerment message we all needed for our students. You changed our campus. We keep referencing your “Other 4.0” and your book. Our FYE team and students appreciate you so much.

Bridget Parsh
My speaking career began after I received standing ovations at my UCLA and Stanford graduation speeches. Around that same time, both of my younger brothers graduated from college unemployed, despite having the same resources as me. They were just as smart and talented, but the world changed drastically in that 4-year gap. Since then, I have traveled the country to speak at over 100 colleges and conferences to make sure that students graduate…on-time…employed…and ready for the real world. My primary college events include:

» First Year Experience & Orientation Programs

» First Generation & Summer Bridge Programs

» Student Leadership Development Programs

» College-To-Career & Business-Related Programs
More Than A Motivational Speaker
Inspiration is not enough. I don’t believe in ra-ra speeches that get everyone excited for 30 minutes, but the moment they leave, all that energy dies. I believe that inspiration + action = real results. I’m committed to making sure that your students graduate…on-time…employed…and ready for the real world.

Jullien delivered his message in a fun, energetic way that engaged and excited our students and I am convinced it has made a positive impact on each of them.

#2: No All Nighters
How To End Procrastination & Perfectionism Forever
Program Summary: Based on Jullien’s second book, Guaranteed Goals, and national 30 Day Do It goal setting movement, this 90 minute presentation is great for individuals who pull all-nighters and student groups, especially those who plan big annual events and conferences. Not only did Jullien graduate UCLA in 3 years, but he also never pulled an all-nighter simply because of this proven time management technique.

Target Audience: Study skills seminars, Procrastinators & Perfectionist, Non-traditional students, Graduate students, Students on academic probation

Jullien challenged our students to think outside of the traditional leadership box and introduced them to a concept of leadership development that was innovative and compelling.

Dr. Ashley Spicer-Runnels
#3: The 4 Levels Of Leadership
How To Create & Sustain Powerful Student Organizations
Program Summary: This presentation breaks down myths students have about great leadership and draws out the leader within each participant. Students will be able to take their learnings back to their organizations so that their organizations can be more sustainable from year to year.

Target Audience: Student leadership trainings and conferences, Student government, Fraternities & Sororities

Hundreds of our students attended Jullien Gordon’s talk, The Other 4.0 That Matters. From the response that night to discussions with students after the talk, our students were engaged and energized and creating plans to make the most of their college experience.

#4: The Innerview
Everything You Must Do In College To Land A Job You Love
Program Summary: A college degree no longer guarantees graduates a good job. This workshop provides an easy-to-follow framework for navigating your inner-view and your interviews so that you differentiate yourself in the job search. This workshop will help students figure out what they want to do professionally, how to meet the right people and attract the right opportunities, and how to land their D.R.E.A.M. job before they graduate.

Target Audience: Career center workshops, Students looking for internships or full-time jobs, Pre-professional organizations, Young alumni

Before the next day’s presentation, three students told us they had made changes in their own lives based on things he had told them in the previous night’s presentation.

#5: How To Educate & Motivate Millennials
How To Connect With & Teach Students From A Different Generation
Program Summary: We assume that just because a professor knows a lot about a subject that they will also be a great teacher. That isn't usually the case. In this session, Jullien teaches faculty and staff members how to educate and motivate Millenials by improving older generation's understanding of the younger generation's mindset and condition in today's competitive global economy.

Target Audience: FYE Instructors, Faculty & Staff
