The agenda for the Fall 2016 Convention is available here.

Jon Montgomery, Dreaming Big: Living Bigger

Jon Montgomery delighted Canadians by winning Gold in Men’s Skeleton at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. Now, as host of The Amazing Race Canada, he is a charming ambassador for our country’s most beautiful sights. In his talks, Montgomery shares his Olympic journey and important lessons on teamwork, leadership, and dreaming big. Whether he’s in snowy Nunavut, on a lentil farm in Saskatchewan, or on stage presenting a keynote speech, Montgomery is genuinely funny and always inspiring.

About Dreaming Big: Living Bigger
While Jon Montgomery always wanted to be a Canadian National Team athlete, he didn’t know which sport it would be in. Keeping his eyes wide open, living outside his comfort zone, trying new things, and accepting the challenges that presented themselves enabled him to find his passion and his opportunity to realize his dreams. Montgomery’s story inspires others to go after what they’re looking for, no matter how daunting the task may at first seem.
