From: Mike Bogdanski, M.S. Date: Tuesday, 11:42 a.m. Dear School Principal, Are you alarmed by the epidemic of bullying that is sweeping our nation's schools? Who wouldn't be? The recent statistics are nothing less than shocking...
As a concerned school administrator dedicated to putting an end to aggression and violence in your school, I'm sure you're aware of the anti-bullying options available to you.
And then there's the additional draw on your already-strained school budget, which can make many of these options difficult -- if not impossible -- to implement. But what if, in just one single hour, you could give your students all of the knowledge they needed to avoid becoming targets or victims, while empowering them to help others who are the victims of bullying? And what if you could do it all without forming committees, coordinating volunteers, retraining teachers, raising funds, or putting a dent in your school budget? Read on to learn exactly how to make it happen...
Principals, counselors, and teachers alike report that my work in their schools has made an overwhelming difference in encouraging students to speak out against bullying, and the State of Connecticut has even declared a "Mike Bogdanski Day," to recognize my service to youth! On top of this, I have some pretty strong academic credentials... I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, and have also earned a Master's Degree in School Counseling. And I have one other very significant and unique qualification that is instrumental in my anti-bullying work, which I'll share with you in just a minute... ... but first, I want to tell you an important story about my own experiences at the hands of a bully.
At first, the bullying and abuse were strictly verbal: name calling, insults, and angry rants. But over time, Bub's anger became more and more intense, until one day, it boiled over into physical violence. I'll never forget the day he came at me with fists raised, and I ended up receiving the pumelling of my life. From that moment on, everything changed for me... I became a prisoner. I was afraid to go outside... afraid to go to school... and even afraid to confide in my family, friends, or teachers. And so I began the downward spiral of depression, isolation, and loss of self-esteem that all victims of bullying experience, and that so often lead to failing grades, drug or alcohol abuse, or worse.
One day, I was flipping through the newspaper, when an ad caught my eye... A local martial arts school was looking for new students, and holding an open house to showcase their school. Of course, that was my answer! All I had to do was learn how to fight, and my days of being bullied would be over! But when I arrived at the martial arts school and explained why I wanted to join, they told me they couldn't help me at all. The reason? Learning martial arts wasn't about fighting, it was about learning how NOT to fight! They encouraged me to stick around and learn, though, and the rest, as they say, is history... I was never bullied again, and today, I'm a martial arts master with a black belt, and 30 years of international competition experience. And it's my martial arts training that makes me so successful as an anti-bullying teacher!
Here's what takes place during a typical hour-long anti-bullying presentation:
Having dedicated myself to community service, there's nothing more rewarding than hearing from school administrators about the differences that my presentations make to their school environments. Here are just a few letters I've received from satisfied principals and teachers...
"Mike's Webinar on school bullying was received with the highest marks. Administrators. teachers and counselors throughout the country raved over the powerful content that Mike shared with them. Indispensable information."

'You were on target Monday night in Greendale!"
My assemblies are suitable for elementary, middle, and high schools and differ according to age group. Many schools add on teacher and parent workshops the same day or evening. I use language and stories that are appropriate for each age group, in order to keep students focused on the presentation material. My programs are customizable, based on your needs, age group, and school size, and I can deliver separate programs to teachers and parents.
And to make it even more affordable, I have a very special offer for you... If you can "team up" with a second school in your area -- so I can deliver my assembly to BOTH of you on the same day (one in the morning, and the other in the afternoon) -- I'll reduce my speaking fee by a full 25%! When you consider the amount of time and energy you need to dedicate to other anti-bullying measures, I think you'll agree that having one person who can visit your school and teach everything students need to know to STOP bullying, all in just an hour, is definitely worth your investment.
I want to be sure that your students get as much value from my presentation as possible, so if you reserve your assembly in the next 14 days, I'll include -- for FREE -- my private post-assembly round table! During this 40-minute round table, I teach a select group of your students how to increase their assertiveness, reduce their level of victimization, and create a positive attitude. When given on its own, this workshop is worth over $1,000, but I'll include it FREE when you reserve your assembly in the next 2 weeks!
If you decide that my assembly does NOT motivate your students to work together to protect each other from bullies... If you find that it does NOT empower children who are potential victims of bullies, by giving them the confidence and self-esteem they need to avoid being targets... If you find it does NOT show potential bullies that their actions have serious consequences, and teach them a better way... In short, if you feel my presentation isn't EVERYTHING I say it will be, please let me know following the presentation. I'll cancel the balance of your payment, refund your deposit, and we'll go our separate ways, with no questions asked. I think you'll agree that's more than fair.
Every 7 minutes, another student somewhere in our country is bullied... and the consequences can be devastating. Don't let it happen in YOUR school! Fill out the contact form, or call me, at 1-860-315-0205, to learn how easy and affordable it can be to have me bring my fun, exciting, and highly effective anti-bullying program to your school. But be sure to get in touch soon. There are only so many appearances I can make in a given month, and my schedule is filling up FAST! Respectfully, Mike Bogdanski, M.S.
P.S. Just a reminder... If you booked an anti-bullying presentation within the next 48 hours, I'll include my special confidence-building workshop: A hands-on 40-minute round table, where I teach a select group of your students how to increase their assertiveness, and reduce their level of victimization (it's a $1,000 value!).
