  “Carl Wilkens is, hands down, one of the best speakers I have ever introduced to my students.  He is inspiring, honest, kind, passionate, and genuine.  He is an extraordinary, riveting storyteller.  Most of all, he will gently challenge you to examine your life and your connections with others.”

— Noah Bopp

Carl’s TEDx presentation at Ursuline College – October 23, 2015

 I’m Not Leaving

Available upon request.

Wide release 2015


Wilkens Presentations:

STORIES and SERVICE – our most effective bridge building tools.  Practical steps and examples to counter ‘Us versus Them’ thinking.

Carl’s multimedia presentation uses Google Earth, his own pictures, and the web  to tell the story of what his family experienced during the genocide. He doesn’t focus on the horror and loss nearly as much as on those who stood up against the wrong. He also shares the amazing recovery process Rwanda has been going through for nearly 21 years, including the vital role of women in government and the private sector.  Carl’s purpose is to leave tools and hope, enabling those in attendance to make a positive difference locally as well as internationally.
