• "One of the best speakers I've heard in my life."

    After college, social entrepreneur Andy Stoll set off on what would become a 4-year, 40-country trip around the world, to better understand how people live. He lived in a Buddhist Temple in Korea; worked in a dress factory in Bangkok; farmed in a mud hut village in Africa; lived the life of a cowboy in Australia; and played a 19th Century British soldier in a Bollywood movie. Andy delivers insightful and entertaining talks that artfully weave together themes of leadership, social entrepreneurship, travel and global perspective to help young people find answers to their most pressing (and often haunting) questions: “What do I want to do when I grow up?” “How can I find my place in the world?” “Can I change the world?” Andy’s message to students is clear: “The distance between who you are and what you want to become is closer than you think.”

  • Andy has spoken at more than 100 U.S. colleges and universities since 2012, bringing his unique presentation style to share his remarkable story.
