Revered across the country and around the world as a strong leader who champions freedom, democracy, human rights, and the rule of law, THE HON. JOHN BAIRD, Former Minister of Foreign Affairs, has made Canadians proud during his years in Federal and Provincial Government. He fought for those with developmental disabilities, oversaw the largest expansion of protected areas in Canadian history, led international efforts to end the barbaric practice of child, early and forced marriage, and promoted the role of women in emerging democracies. He was also among the world’s most outspoken critics of hateful and outdated anti-gay legislation in places like Uganda, Nigeria, and Russia.

We are proud to now represent Mr. Baird, and provide audiences with the unique opportunity to hear directly from him on such topics as Geopolitics: Risks and Opportunities; Global Affairs: Canada’s Role and Influence Internationally; Domestic Politics: The Canadian Political Landscape; and the Middle East Crisis.

3-NeilPasricha_Apr2015

This is AWESOME news that makes us very happy! You know him as one of the most popular TED speakers in the world and the author of the runaway #1 international bestseller, The Book of Awesome, and we are excited to announce that NEIL PASRICHA has joined Speakers’ Spotlight! Neil is available to share his ongoing work and recent breakthroughs into the study of happiness, all  based on his much-anticipated book, The Happiness Equation: Want Nothing + Do Anything = Have Everything, to be released in spring, 2016.

With infectious enthusiasm, heartfelt authenticity, and a “what’s worked” authority, Neil connects with audiences and then challenges them to elevate expectations of themselves and commit to the habit of happiness every day. He tailors his presentations to each audience, and speaks about happiness on both a personal level—sharing the latest research and tips on what individuals can do to create more happiness in their lives—as well as the organizational level—what leaders can do to foster a culture of happy, engaged, and productive people.
