Quote on Zach's presentations

"We were excited and fortunate to have Zach present a session on mental health- a highly critical topic, especially amongst college students balancing school, work, Greek life, and other responsibilities. I appreciated that he took the time to familiarize himself with my school’s resources and the student’s needs so that he could best serve our specific community prior to coming on campus. He not only gave accurate facts about mental health, but also he shared his own personal journey. Zach effectively reduced the stigma around mental health, and it was an especially impactful message coming from a fellow Greek life male who understood the complex dynamics life can present. On top of it all, he spoke in an intriguing, current manner that kept us engaged throughout his presentation. He has helped not only myself, but also others to identify with signs of anxiety and other mental health topics and methods for support. I highly recommend Zach to share his story and offer his advice about mental health, as he has supported me and my Greek community in ours."

Quote on Zach's presentations

"In spring of 2019, I served as the VP of Service for UCSD IFC Council. We hired Zach to give a speech and program around mental health. It was during a time of unrest and great anguish among our Greek community. Zach's involvement with the audience and understanding demeanor was exceptionally beneficial to our community. I would recommend Zach for any event around mental health and would say Zach is a perfect fit for campus speaking events. He was very dynamic and interactive with the crowd, and of our week of events, Zach's was the most successful."

Quote on Zach's presentations

"In September of 2019, I served as the Vice President of Programming for Georgia Tech's Interfraternity Council. One of my goals was to organize a guest speaker on mental health for our Greek community and campus as a whole. We selected Zach and were far from disappointed! He made the entire process of planning and organizing the event incredibly smooth, was reliable and flexible in communication, and took the time to show up early and get to know the organizers and our campus. Over the course of his two-hour workshop, Zach shared the story of his personal mental health journey and shifted our perspectives on this incredibly pervasive issue. Perhaps most importantly, his presentation style was dynamic and engaging enough to keep everybody interested throughout the event! I cannot recommend him enough for any sort of mental health related speaking engagement or workshop."

Quote on Zach's presentations

"For the Fall of 2019 I was the VP for wellness on the Panhellenic council at Penn State and Zach came to speak for my Wellness week I planned. I started talking to Zach and planning this out with him in January right as I got into my term. We had a phone call and I really loved everything he had to say about mental health and the struggles we all go through. Zach was so relatable for me and I knew he would connect with others. When he came in he did 3 breakout sessions for me and was so accommodating. So many women went up to him at the end telling their stories and how thankful they were for him opening up that really hard conversation surrounding mental health. This was a really great opportunity for our Panhellenic women to open up about any struggles they have and to learn more about what mental health is and how to take care of ourselves. Zach was so great to work with and he truly broke the stigma surrounding mental health. I loved having Zach here and would love to see him return for other events in the future."
