Many students find the competitive nature of the DECA program intimidating and fail in the programs core objectives because they lack self-esteem. Aggressive marketing and business strategies the organization prepares students for fail to excite members who look forward to careers elsewhere. Training students for leadership goals in an industry they do not understand also drives student interests in other directions. The college level offers more challenges as students want more time for endeavors not involving school or clubs. To instill the importance of learning these skills and the network that will remain available after graduation fails if students do not respect the speaker. Finding a speaker whom the audience believes and respects tops the list of priorities.
