We are happy to announce Mike Shaw, a former competitor and coach of the Canadian Development Half Pipe Ski Team as our keynote!

In this presentation, Mike shares his story about how a life-altering, critical accident transformed his perspective on courage, resilience, and gratitude. Just when he was ready to give up, Mike learned to channel positivity, changing everything for my future. He tackled obstacles, conquered failures, and learned the power of a positive mind.

His presentation will cover the following key points:

-Enhance individual mental health and wellbeing, grit, resilience, and gratitude
-Learn proven perspectives to better manage change in the internal and external environment
-Learn strategic techniques involving gratitude to motivate, appreciate, and retain individuals in your organizations
