Victim to Victor - Speaking and Workshops

© Copyright By Victor Pacini.  All Rights Reserved.

Victor Pacini is known as the most sought after speaker in the parent-child community. He is famous for designing engaging and entertaining experiences and products that help children and parents create that confident voice and overcome adversity, while addressing delicate topics with a fresh and positive perspective that skyrockets self-esteem and increases connection without being fake and insensitive.

Victor has traveled the country sharing his life changing messages to over 500,000 children and countless parents. He is the author of four books including, My Dreams, Winning Within, Your Voice, and There's Only One You. Victor caught the inspirational eye of Dr. Wayne Dyer and was asked to sing during his Power of Intention tour. Wayne said, "Victor, you did a great job with my audience. My granddaughter loved your book."

Helping parents with their child's confidence and self-esteem is the foundation for Victor's workshops and presentations. Schools bring these programs in to reinforce the social emotional component of the district's curriculum.

Being called, "The Inner-tainer", Victor's programs and workshops are a combination of core confidence building strategies and tools, and original music that sets the tone for an educational and fun experience.

Because Victor was sexually abused as a child - Because Victor is an adult child of a violent and destructive alcoholic parent - Because Victor's sister was killed by her husband in a domestic violence situation, Victor has transformed his life and purpose by creating dynamic presentations and workshops in the following categories:

- Social Emotional Learning Standards - Goal Setting, Self-Awareness, Positive Relationship Building, and Character Development
- PBIS - Respect, Responsibility, and Character Development
- Erin's Law - Sexual Abuse Prevention and Awareness
- Leadership

My Dreams™
This program is dedicated to helping people understand the importance of following their dreams and never giving up despite the challenges they might face. Victor's original song, My Dreams begins this journey. The song lyrics are very powerful and available upon request. Victor interacts with audience members, asking them to share their dreams with the group. The idea of role models is emphasized during an exercise in which Victor stresses the importance of learning from personal acquaintances along with well known heroes. Victor sings an original song that focuses on three well-known individuals who inspired the world by living their dreams and not giving up despite the obstacles they faced. The original song, Lucky Penny brings home the concept of never letting anyone tell you can't do something because you are not good enough.

The Kindness Challenge™
The Kindness Challenge enables people to create their unique creative plan to feel good about themselves and to treat others with kindness and respect. Victor stresses the importance of qualities such as kindness, respect, giving, and caring. He provides suggestions for incorporating these qualities in daily life. Through song and interactive discussion, Victor illustrates the importance of identifying people in our lives that inspire us. During the original song titled Lesson In Session, audience members act out a scenario that demonstrates the art of giving and kindness. The program concludes with "The Kindness Challenge". This exercise notes the importance of commitment and challenges students to do a kind act for someone within one week. Teacher follow-up is highly recommended. (Fits PBIS Guidelines.)

One Song™
One Song is dedicated to conveying the message that we are one. Even though we look different, act different, we are connected. This program also deals with issues of bullying and pressures to fit into a group. Victor creates a role playing situation by bringing audience members up to form The One Song Band. During this fun interchange, he uses the analogy that even though we are like different instruments, when we play together, we play one song. That song being...humanity.
