CARP is a national, non-partisan, non-profit organization in Canada committed to a new vision for aging in this country. They are involved in promoting social change that will bring financial security, equitable access to health care and freedom from discrimination. So when I was invited to come speak at the local Mississauga chapter of CARP as their first ever Toronto motivational speaker, I was quite honoured to do so.
Their mandate is to promote and protect the interests, rights and quality of life for Canadians as people age in this country. I went in to do a slightly shorter version of my full motivational keynote to a receptive audience. It was a very nice facility since they used a theatre room in the Origin Evergreen facility in Mississauga.
I wasn’t aware that they had invited local press to come in and cover the event. Although staff photographers from SNAP North Mississauga didn’t arrive until midway through my talk, they took photos of the event after the presentation. You can see some of the photos as well as the writeup at the SNAP North Mississauga article.
I spoke to some of the CARP board members and they seem to be a group with lots of ideas for events in the community. They are also willing to do some events that other community groups have not done. So I told them that if they ever do an event where they could use a Toronto motivational speaker, I would be available.
Since I use my karate bo staff weapon during my talks and also invite some members of the audience to try them out, we were able to get a photo afterwards with CARP members with bo staffs as shown below. All for fun as well as some motivational learning as well.
If you represent a group or company in the GTA and could use Toronto motivational speakers for a future event or meeting, check out my speaking programs.
