Books, white papers and articles (and the spoken word!) are the cornerstones of professional and executive development. As a follower of The Speaker Experts, you will always have direct and pro-bono access to the world’s top authors’ and thought leaders’ publications through our LinkedIn exclusive network. It is okay every once in a while to put down the reading material and watch a movie or documentary for both entertainment and professional development purposes. This month, we are happy to offer either option for your viewing enjoyment: “Spare Parts” starring George Lopez, Jamie Lee Curtis and Marisa Tomei, or the companion award-winning documentary “Underwater Dreams”, narrated by Michael Pena (President Obama recorded a special introduction message prior to the White House screening, as seen below):

to the White House viewing on April 7, 2015

Both DVDs tell the story of four under-served Hispanic high school students who formed a robotics club in Phoenix. With no experience, 800 bucks, used car parts and a dream, this rag tag team goes up against the country’s reigning robotics champion, MIT and other elite college powerhouse schools (spoiler alert, The Carl Hayden High School team wins!). The movie and documentary are based on science teacher and speaker Fredi Lajvardi’s life story. While the motion picture was not a blockbuster hit, it is a fun movie, and suitable for the entire family.

Please order your complimentary copy of the movie or documentary by completing the form below (available while supplies last).
