Registration for the Canadian Pharmacists Conference 2014 is now open!
We are pleased to announce that the Canadian Pharmacists Conference 2014 keynote speaker is Michael "Pinball" Clemons, Vice-Chairman of the Toronto Argonauts Football Club!
To Canadians, the name “Pinball” stands for remarkable athletic talent, outstanding sportsmanship and a commitment to the community. As a former all-star running back, Grey Cup winning coach, President and CEO, and now the Vice-Chair for the Toronto Argonauts, Michael “Pinball” Clemons is a man of unquestionable character and spirit. He is equally renowned for his achievements on the football field as he is for his impact as a motivational speaker. Pinball’s presentations are at once captivating and empowering. He inspires audiences by demonstrating what it means to beat the odds and encourages listeners to use teamwork to achieve their goals.
