"WIN BY CHOICE"
After winning two chess championships (having been considered
the lowest seed both times), Hudson recognized that chess provides a structured
way of learning and helps to develop skills, such as patience, concentration,
the ability to solve problems, and the ability to follow rules. It also teaches
responsibility, as it illustrates that all actions have consequences. And,
lastly, it teaches that winning isn't everything; sometimes losing can be
a valuable instrument for improvement. It is from these roots that Hudson
developed his Make Every Move Count method. Says Hudson, "It's less
about teaching chess than building character."
"Win by Choice" Presentations and Seminars
Hudson's high-energy, short-duration presentations provide a
series of meaningful steps students can use to stay on track in today's fast-paced
environment. Positive benefits for students include improved grades, prolonged
attention spans, enhanced ability to think strategically, a desire to compete
in a positive atmosphere, and team-building skills. Kids leave the presentation
inspired and motivated to apply their newly acquired skills toward achievement
in school and in life.
