Keynotes

Hope, Understanding and Victory

This keynote can be customized to suit any audience looking to gain more insight into the epidemic of mental health and addiction issues in our society today. It is also an excellent learning tool for college/university staff and students to address a growing concern in that sector.

1 in 5 Canadians deal with mental health issues daily. It is also estimated that as high as 4 million Canadians are dealing with an addiction. On average, 12 families each day in Canada are changed forever by suicide. Hear a true life story of a man once filled with fear that found hope in recovery. Understand what victory looks like for someone facing mental health and addictions and learn how we can all help remove the stigma so those that need the help can reach out and ask for help.

This keynote touches everyone in the audience! Dan shares his tragic life stories and gives you insight into a life that most of us would not be able to survive. Everyone sees in themselves some of what Dan has had to overcome.

  • Learn what it looks like from the inside when facing mental health and addictions
  • Understand the importance of the small victories and how they aid in the process of recovery
  • Learn how we can all help remove the stigma so others can seek help


Ordinary Actions – Extraordinary Impacts

This 90-minute session is the perfect inspirational tool for public sector workers, service agencies, corporations and charitable organizations.

This powerful presentation will help remind those that work with the public of the impact they can have on other people’s lives. When you don’t always see the end results of your work, it can be difficult to stay motivated.

  • Rediscover the passion of serving the public
  • Realize once again the importance of the work you do
  • Hear the first hand testimony of one life that was extraordinarily impacted by public sector staff
  • Regain your motivation and focus

Comments from recent attendees of this keynote:

Your message has gone beyond inspirational – Jim

I can’t thank you enough for what you did for these four students.  Not only did you motivate but you made them pause and think and realize how making a difference affects everyone around you. Karen

The Power of One

History has given us many examples of people, events and actions that have not only changed the world but have taught us much about the world we live in and a great deal about ourselves. One person, one idea, one action can make a difference.

Dan will illustrate how “ones add up”. Be prepared to be impacted and to enhance your life principles and successes. The power of one will not only help give you insight into your own life but will offer great examples of how the human spirit can overcome and accomplish great things.

If you are looking to focus on your purpose and move forward in a positive direction, this keynote is for you.  You will take away tools and be inspired to make the changes that are within you.

Inspirational, motivational and life changing – Elaine

Our sales team was lucky enough to attend this session with Dan. He has given us all a new perspective and outlook on what we do. We can’t wait to get out there and start using some of these great tools! – Richard
