The speaker who brings laughter to life!
Craig works with organizations using humor, creativity, spontaneity and laughter to break down barriers that get in the way of positive communication and teamwork.
Craig's programs will not only leave you laughing and full of energy, you will be ready to begin your Regis experience! His programs are always participatory - you won't leave without becoming physically, mentally and emotionally involved.
Should you think and act like a four-year-old? Craig's answer is yes! Four year olds laugh a lot, are creative, have passion, are spontaneous, take positive risks, live in the moment and don't let fear get in the way of their dreams. When we combine our knowledge and compassion with those wonderful traits the results are amazing.
The Human Experience
22 Film Festival Honors including Winner of Best Feature Documentary
From Grassroots Films of Brooklyn, N.Y., comes The Human Experience - the story of a band of brothers who travel the world in search of the answers to the burning questions: Who am I? What is the reason for living? Have we forgotten what it means to be human? Their journey begins in the concrete jungle, where the brothers spend the two coldest weeks of the year living among the homeless on the streets of New York City. As their story unfolds, they find themselves among people from the far corners of the world: from the orphans and disabled children of Peru, to the abandoned lepers in the forests of Ghana. What the young men discover impacts them forever. Through one-on-one interviews and real life encounters, the brothers are awakened to the beauty of the human person and the resilience of the human spirit.

Born and raised in the little big town of Spokane, Wash., Brett Hite was never afraid to dream big and go against the grain. Growing up in an athletic family, Hite naturally pursued and excelled in athletics. He became a nationally recognized and highly recruited high school soccer player. After a less than desirable college playing career Hite would return to the drawing board where music would reveal itself as his destiny. Now in his mid-twenties Hite is living out those dreams and is more determined than ever to never give up. After releasing his debut album “Visible” in May of 2010 Hite is now working on his next release with many top 40 producers including multi-platinum record producer Matt Wallace (Maroon 5, Train, O.A.R.). After playing at more than 50 colleges in 2011 and an incredible arsenal of new unreleased songs, 2013 is shaping up to be a massive year for Brett Hite.
