Powerful Message

His program "The Power of Ole! - Optimistic Leadership Energy!" will encourage students to know that they are each unique and special and that we are all here to use our individual talents to make the world a better place. Students will realize that we get good at whatever we practice - and that we are always practicing something!

He shows how success and happiness in life depends on respecting and caring about others as well as being responsible in everything we think and say and do. Each moment is an opportunity to make a choice that can be a part of the solution to family, school, and world problems.

Speaking from his own life experience, he helps the students see that every choice has an outcome or result, and we always have the power to choose to do what is right. His positive message points out that the greatest success comes from always saying 'Yes' to the good stuff in life rather than worrying about saying 'No' to the bad stuff. Kids quickly understand the idea that what you focus on is what you tend to get more of, so focus on that which is good!

Ronald Radford loves to perform and to speak to Kids

"Always do your best, and the best will always come back to you" is an underlying theme of his stories, which introduce each musical selection.

Besides being a successful concert performer he is also a 'compulsive educator' and his answers to student’s questions are spontaneous, educational and often humorous. He talks with the kids and not down to them in a friendly and unpretentious manner.

He gets stacks of fan letters from Elementary children, and the High School students usually give him a standing ovation.
