“Willard Library’s 6th Annual Poetry Slam had the added bonus to have professional speakers and poets Kinetic Affect come in and display their expertise in performance! Their performances were dramatic, powerful, and provided content that everyone in the audience could relate to, especially the students. Kirk’s background in teaching along with his passion for poetry really shined through during the workshop, while Gabe’s suggestions to the performers-in-training were sensitive, honest and spot on. The time Kirk and Gabe took to spend with our young people will leave a long lasting impact on our children. On a side note, one of the kids who did not win the poetry slam competition, jokingly told me that with Kinetic Affect’s help, his performance got him a girlfriend out of the deal.”Stephanie Boyd, Children/Teen Service Librarian Coordinator of Poetry Slam Willard Public Library

In a world full of fast paced deadlines and short attention spans reconnecting the mind and the heart is where the magic happens. Too often we find ourselves being told to separate our personal and professional lives, to “leave ourselves at the door” when we walk into work. But according to a study by the Journal of Economic Psychology, employees who feel appreciated and comfortable to be themselves at work causes them to choose more challenging tasks and are motivated to be productive.
Gabriel Giron, a former military soldier in the US Army and a cancer survivor, and Kirk Latimer, a former teacher and golden gloves boxer, combine their voices to tell a story of their sacrifice, hard work and passionate belief to navigate a rocky road to success.
Utilizing a mix of wild humor, personal testimony, and a research driven approach, Kinetic Affect’s presentations remind audiences everywhere that the best businesses are not solely focused on the bottom line, but on the pulsing heartbeat of the people in them.
