Kazim Abbot

Kazim Abbot Motivational speaker, STEM advocate

Kazim Abbot is a dynamic, motivational speaker who captivates and engages his audience with vivid, powerful, and thought-provoking stories. Originally from the island of St. Lucia, Abbot uses his gifts of leadership, oratory, and intellect to drive change and to help solve some of society’s greatest challenges, such as thriving during change, the student debt crisis, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) labor shortages, and the wealth gap.

As a self-proclaimed “Warren Buffet of People,” Abbot drives individual change, investing in what he says is the best resource on this planet—people. His company, The Academic Consulting Agency, provides math coaching and college prep services to help students thrive and graduate with the right offer on the table. His degree philosophy is, “As Debt-Free as Possible,” and with good reason.

When a promised, full-ride scholarship at a university did not materialize, Abbot found himself turning tragedy into triumph. Seeking ways to fund his studies, he became proficient at finding opportunities such as scholarships and internships to minimize debt in the pursuit of three degrees.

Abbot is a strong advocate for STEM and helps students secure employment before graduation. His dynamic message of hope and inspiration encourages audience members to invest in themselves, build teams to fulfil dreams, and become the best versions of themselves possible.

Abbot recently relocated to the Greater Cincinnati area, United States, with his wife, Nicole.
