Joe is incredible, and is a huge hit with students and adults. We've traveled to South Africa twice and all over the US performing and speaking together and he is always received with the same looks of amazement and disbelief. Any school would be incredibly lucky to have Joe - he's sensational, and a wonderful man of integrity! --- Bay Forrest, Phoenix Suns, Retired
Joe Odhiambo is one of the best school assembly programs that you will find anywhere. His programs are unique because Joe Odhiambo does not just tell his audience that they will succeed if they work hard, he shows them through physical examples.

Joe "the trick-star" Odhiambo is originally from Kenya in East Africa. His humble upbringing taught him the drive and work ethic which has allowed him to become the best in his class. Odhiambo now communicates these tough life lessons and experiences to his audience. He strongly believes that even though we start the race in different places, at the end of the day, what you put in is what you will get back.
Odhiambo shows the students that all people can succeed in life through five attributes Joe believes in:
Faith in Yourself: Believing in one’s ability regardless of what others say.
Persistence: Ability to endure hardship, keep working hard until you attain your goals.
Patience: Working long hard hours because you understand what it takes to succeed through practice.
Working Hard. Understanding that there is no short-cut to anywhere worth going.
Responsibility: Follow through with what needs to be done to get the job done.
Founded in 1901, the Bureau of Lectures provided over 7000 assemblies to 2938 schools in the last school year. Our programs are education and/or entertaining and GUARANTEED.
We think you will be most pleased with the line-up of programs we are offering you for the 2014-2015 year. Almost all of the programs are related in some way to your curriculum, and most can deliver a "Say No" message if you want to use drug free funds to pay for the assembly.
As always, call us with your special needs and requests. We pride ourselves on our "fast, patient, and imformative" service and our commitment to quality programming.
