Keynote Speaker


There's More To You Than You Can See - Joe Roberts, Skid Row CEO

Joe Roberts is an expert on resiliency and change. In 1989 he was homeless living under a bridge. 12 years later he was a celebrated CEO and in 2017 he finished a 9064 km charity walk across Canada. Joe helps companies and individuals redefine impossible.

In this keynote, Joe teaches how to build the resiliency needed to overcome life’s challenges and embrace change.

As you walk with Joe through the tough streets of East Vancouver in the 1980’s, you will experience the depths and degradation of a former hopeless, homeless drug addict, to the heights and triumph of a successful entrepreneur.

Using a research based behavioural change model, participants will evaluate their current state of resiliency and learn how to crush unproductive habits while developing a high-performance mindset. Participants leave with tools they can use immediately to create their own inspired results.

Joe is a treasured Canadian whose life story embodies the resiliency of the human spirit. His message is inspiring, energetic, humorous, honest, raw and unforgettable.
