The All-star speaker lineup is not to be missed this year: It includes:

Warren Macdonald: Shifting Your Perception on Change

Warren Macdonald has climbed over obstacles most people cannot imagine. Having lost both of his legs from a freak accident, Macdonald not only decided that his injuries wouldn’t slow him down―he decided they would propel him to new heights. Just 10 months after the incident, Warren climbed Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain and later summited both Mount Kilimanjaro and El Capitan. Inspiring audiences to turn challenge into change, Warren’s talks foster the desire to seek opportunities and overcome obstacles.

Jack Armstrong: Toronto Raptors Game Analyst 

Best known as the colourful and entertaining voice of the 2019 NBA Championship winning team, the Toronto Raptors, Jack Armstrong brings energy, coaching philosophy, and kind heart to every stage, leaving audiences engaged, motivated, and inspired.

Dr. Janet Lapp: Thrive During Fast Change 

Dr. Janet Lapp delivers a powerful message: change is not a force to be feared but an opportunity to be seized. With humour and finesse, she helps audiences learn to embrace the future — no matter what challenges it may bring — with success and optimism. Her energy-charged, exhilarating programs provide usable ideas people can put to use right away.

 Zahra Al-Harazi: Award-Winning Entrepreneur 

The road to real leadership is rarely a straight one. Among Canada’s most successful entrepreneurs, few have faced more obstacles than Zahra Al-Harazi, who survived two civil wars before immigrating to Canada with three children and then seizing the business world. With a no-holds-barred attitude, Al-Harazi helps people and organizations realize their potential for success, drawing on her experience as a pioneering woman with a unique approach to attitude, leadership, and success, as well as her experience as a refugee, immigrant, entrepreneur.
