workshops and presentations
a rather blurry image of me interviewing Rick Mercer at the Magnetic North Festival, Calgary, in 2012
Over the years I've had the great pleasure of publicly interviewing a number of super-interesting well known artists and public figures. In addition to Rick Mercer, I've had public one-on-one's with slain activist Rachel Corrie's parents Cindy and Craig Corrie, US author and intellectual Richard Rodriguez, Canadian actor Sandra Oh, and internationally renowned Canadian theatre-makers Daniel MacIvor, Densie Clark and Blake Brooker.
I am regularly brought in for keynotes, speeches, or to lead workshops and public engagement events for a variety of organizations including the Alliance for Arts and Culture, the City of Vancouver, BC Ministry of Women's Equality, BC Federation of Labour, Vancouver District Labour Council, school districts across British Columbia, Washington State and the Yukon, Vancouver Coastal Health, Elastic Path Software, and many others.
The focus of these varies, from the role arts and culture can play in fostering engaged communities to helping companies improve their employees presentation skills
