Thank you for considering me as a keynote speaker for your event.

I believe the most critical part of public speaking is interacting with and engaging audiences to realize the connections in all of life’s triumphs and obstacles that we share.

Above all, it’s important to me that an audience leaves an event not only inspired with clear takeaways, but also connected to me enough that they would think of me as a friend.

Colorado State University Spring 2021 Commencement Speech by Kareem Rosser


“An alumnus of Colorado State University, Kareem agreed to serve as our 2021 Commencement speaker in Fall 2020. Kareem was always quick to respond and generous with his time. His message to graduates was heartfelt and sincere, and offered a great boost to students who were graduating during challenging times. We all enjoyed working with Kareem and would recommend him for any future speaking opportunities.”

Thousand Oaks Library – An Afternoon with Kareem Rosser


“We had the honor of hosting award-winning author and championship polo player, Kareem Rosser at our 2022 One City One Book Author event. Kareem spoke about his memoir; Crossing the Line: A Fearless Team of Brothers and the Sport That Changed Their Lives Forever. Kareem was extremely gracious, earnest, and engaging. He made a powerful connection with audience members and was kind, approachable, honest and real as he answered questions and discussed his book with our moderator. He also met with the public at a book signing after. 

It was a delight to meet him and have him speak to our community members and we were thrilled with their response. We highly recommend Kareem to other libraries, or any groups or audiences who want to be inspired by a story about the bonds of family loyalty, the transformative connection between man and horse and forging a better future while defying and overcoming impossible odds. He was terrific!”
