Inside The Boardroom: Frank O’Dea, Innovative Entrepreneur and Humanitarian

Frank O’Dea’s story of triumph over adversity in business and in his personal life inspires audiences around the world. Against all odds, O’Dea went from being a homeless panhandler to a successful entrepreneur and a founder of The Second Cup chain of coffee stores. From there, he went on further to launch a number of other innovative and successful businesses and international not-for-profit organizations. O’dea’s powerful message inspires audiences to hope for a better future and learn from his example. O’dea paid a visit to Speaker’s Spotlight recently and prepared the above synopsis of his talk, “The Power of Hope, Vision, Action.”
