AccessU Presentation at Wilfred Laurier University

Posted on Nov 9, 2011 in portfolio, speaking, TED

This week I was asked to give a talk about life, entrepreneurship and TEDxWaterloo all in a one hour block for a program called AccessU at WLU. A big thanks to Jon for hosting me and to the students to came to the session. It was great to connect with so many enthusiastic, motivated students in such an open environment.

Preparing these kinds of talks is always a challenge for me, but the preparation ends up actually forcing me to reflect on certain things in my life and in the end, is something I am always happy to have done. It was a chance to look at my last year in particular, leaving RIM, going to a non-profit, and now working on two different startups as well as doing some consulting work on the side (not to mention planning TEDxWaterloo for 2012). It’s been a great journey and I’m thankful for the opportunity to share a bit of it.

140 Conf Ontario #140conf

I was asked to be on a panel with a handful of other incredible community leaders (Hilary Abel / @angrycelery, David Yoon / @daejin_v2 and James Howe / @Communic8nHowe) and our panel was actually left pretty wide open (which is rare).
