The feedback on your presentation from the attendees was overwhelmingly positive. You are a true Canadian success story and no doubt inspired our audience with your grit, determination and infectious enthusiasm. I have attended many conferences and have listened to far too many ‘motivational’ speakers. Although there are many interesting public speakers and ‘coaches’, it was refreshing to hear someone who, not only ‘talks the talk’, but rather someone who has truly accomplished many significant goals and who has ‘walked the walk’.”

“Your experience in the Canadian Armed Forces coupled with your exuberant and energetic speaking style created a very impressive address. Responses from all in attendance were very positive as everyone enjoyed your motivational words of wisdom. “The Sky Is Not The Limit” is an ideology which can easily be related to our personal lives as well as objectives within the workplace.”
