Speaker Hall of Fame

Today I am speechless. Which is rare for me. I was totally, utterly honored to be inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame last evening at my Canadian Association of Speakers Convention. It is rare to meet a speaker who knew they wanted to be a speaker for a living. I had no idea I would be called to this career 26 years ago and am so proud to represent Saskatchewan and the Prairies with this prestigious award. Thank you, CAPS. I am grateful, and humbled, beyond words.

Ontario Power Generation

In Toronto today to speak to Ontario Power Generation for the Environmental Health and Safety group.
When a client calls to book me to speak to their staff group the first person to call sets the tone for your entire group. Aaron and Julie are the kind of people you know you could be friends with. I am so grateful to work with such kind people who care so much for their staff. If you are in a leadership position and you don’t think it is important to be nice to everyone, rethink that. Your company’s reputation is you.

Canadian Association of Professional Speakers Convention

In London Ontario today and finally I get to attend a conference as a guest! I am lucky enough to spend all year attending your conventions and staff meetings and now I am attending the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers Convention. This is where I come to learn how to be a better professional speaker. Can you imagine how much fun a room full of speakers and trainers is? And how loud that room is?? I am so proud to be friends with some of the most amazing people you could ever meet.

Great Plains College

Thank you Great Plains College in Swift Current, Sask, for inviting me to your staff gathering. I love when staff gatherings include ALL staff! Everyone on your team is part of the student experience and it is so important to stop and celebrate the end of a year together. Colleges change lives. Colleges give students pathways to meaningful employment. I call that a VERY important job.

Farmers

My grandfather used to say that once in your life you need a doctor, a lawyer, a policeman and a preacher but every day, three times a day, you need a farmer.

Be extraordinary!

A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results. – Wade Boggs

Regina

In Regina today with my last public event of 2019. I am so grateful for everyone who takes their time and spends their money to come and hear me speak. For those of you who are lucky enough to work for a company that brings in speakers, lucky you! Some do not.

I could not be more grateful to my home city for all of their support over my 26 years of being an entrepreneur in this great city!

Service

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. – Mahatima Gandhi
