Speaker: Gretchen Burman

Founder of Character U, Author & Speaker


Gretchen Burman and founder of Character U introduces elementary aged children to the power of positive self-talk, mindset and twelve character-building tools — empowering kids to feel and do their best. Children who have the skills to feel good on the inside are more likely to do well on the outside and treat each other with compassion and respect. Resulting in a kinder, safer and more accepting environment where children can experience improved behavior and reduced bullying.

Her book, assemblies and workshops offer a child-friendly and age-appropriate way to help children: feel good about themselves, improve coping skills, navigate difficult situations, grow their resilience, be effective communicators (in-person and online), show respect and kindness to themselves and each other.
