Keynote Speaker

Michael "Pinball" Clemons

Keynote Speaker Michael ClemonsMichael "Pinball" Clemons, Vice-Chairman of the Toronto Argonauts Football Club, 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.

Closing Speaker

Dr. David Butler-Jones

The brain is the most complex of organs and injury to it results in equally complex impacts on life and well-being. Though modern approaches in therapy and rehabilitation offer the hope of recovery in a way unknown to previous generations, research continues to demonstrate how little we really know. As our closing speaker, Dr. Butler-Jones will recount his personal story of life after stroke and the lessons he has learned. Dr. David Butler Jones is Canada's first Chief Public Health Officer (2004-2014) with the Public Health Agency of Canada.
