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.
