Big Mouth Presentations is a premier character presentation program and has partnered with over 1,000 schools across 21 different states, helping develop or reinforce their culture of character on campus. Big Mouth Presentations is one of the few presentation programs that has been endorsed by the national Character Counts! office and has been sponsored by the likes of APS, PG&E, and the Verizon Foundation.
Our services are proven to not only improve your culture on campus, but to improve education altogether! Doesn't it make sense that when students are responsible they will do their homework? Or when they understand respect they will listen better in class, which in turn will translate into a better learning environment for all involved?
We'll be honest - we partly chose our name to catch your attention, but there's a little more to it. Our youth are bombarded with messages from media & culture. More often than not, our youth is getting the wrong message. Magazines cause body image issues, music is full of depression, tv encourages teen promiscuity, video games promote violence, society preaches individualism over community.
We believe our young people need to hear a different message. That's why we use our big mouths to inspire traits and train hearts that will help our young people become successful, mature & happy individuals who care about people & take responsibility in their communities. We motivate students, educators & parents to lead lives that positively impact world around them. It's our mission to make this the loudest message our youth hear!
We bring a full multimedia experience to schools across the nation, custom tailored for each age group from Kindergarten through High School.
It's time the voice of character and community became louder than the negative messages we hear. We're a team of public speakers using our big mouths to speak loudly to this generation, far and wide, to bring messages of truth, love, leadership, character and community.

Founder & Board Chairman
In 2001, Todd McIntyre founded Big Mouth Presentations, a non-profit 501(c)3, with the intent to assist schools and youth organizations in meeting the challenging needs of promoting good character. With his 20 years of experience working with children and teens, Todd has become a premier communicator on developing a culture of character in this generation.
"Since our first character presentation in the Mesa Juvenile Detention Center for Teens in 2001, Big Mouth has partnered with hundreds of schools and youth organizations across the country. The presentations have changed since then, but the message is still the same - “Your Character Counts”! At Big Mouth Presentations our goal has never been to just do a job or put together a good assembly, but it has always been to partner with schools. We found that many schools were getting other presentations that were good, but didn’t flow well with their character philosophy. That's why we have always tried to cater our message of character to be functional for the staff and parents of any school or youth organization.
We understand that there are many youth presenters across the country. However, when you book Big Mouth Presentations to come and speak to your students you are getting quality presenters that are not only living a life of character, but actually care about your kids. Our goal is to make sure that no matter what school or organization we present in front of, we leave there having given our best. You will never be disappointed that you partnered Big Mouth Presentations for your next presentation!"

Take leadership & character development to the next level. Ask us about our "Quest" team-building retreat - a field-day type event where students must work together to overcome obstacles and will learn the impact choices have not only on themselves, but on those around them. Or ask how we can work with you to create the best Spirit Assembly your students have seen! We partner with you, your student council, athletic teams, etc. to put together an amazing assembly your school won't forget!
To really inspire a culture of character on your campus, take advantage of our Classroom Character Workshops or Student Development Summits! Whether it's a one-time workshop to point them in the right direction or a year-long summit, our team is highly experienced in developing leadership & character with students!
Staff workshops utilize slideshows, videos and a motivational speaker to show you how character & leadership development can be done without adding more to your plate. The trainings also offer a facilitated brainstorming session for your staff to create a plan of action for the culture of your campus.

Imagine a staff meeting that your team not only looks forward to, but begs for it again! Team-building exercises, fun challenges, music, motivational speaking, even a salsa-making contest! This retreat for your staff will not only be fun, but will get your team working together and reignited with a passion to serve your students.
Teachers can only do so much with their students. Ultimately, it's up to us parents to raise our children to be people of character. That's why we offer evening parent workshops to help equip parents to better teach and model character in the home. When schools and parents are partnered for the success of our youth, the outcome is tremendous!
