  • Anthony was just the keynote Danone needed during our weeklong Development Days in September. His high energy, entertaining antics and positive reflection on life is a perfect fit for energy management within the corporate world. We wanted to show the organization we are continuing to listen and prioritize mental health and Anthony provided easy steps to prioritize putting your own mask on first. We look forward to welcoming Anthony back for a third time in 2022!

Anthony was a pleasure to work with, he seamlessly incorporated our company’s Mission, Vision, Values into his presentations, making them all the more relevant to our audience. If you want have a meaningful conversation about Diversity & Inclusion with your employees, I’d highly recommend you bring Anthony in.

  • Anthony’s virtual presentations have been so helpful to us as we work to create a culture that fosters caring, wellness, diversity and inclusion. He is incredibly gifted at connecting with people in a way that reaches them at their level and lifts them higher — which is especially hard to do virtually! He navigates difficult subjects with respect, grace, and humour. Feedback from our team has been overwhelmingly positive!

  • I just wanted to let you know that Anthony was absolutely FANTASTIC on Saturday night!! Our student leaders absolutely loved him and the messages he shared with us. As organizers, we were so impressed with his enthusiasm and professionalism. He did such an amazing job at connecting with the audience, despite being in a virtual setting. He struck the perfect chord with our attendees and set them up for a challenging and yet rewarding coming year for our first year students. Perfect speaker for a challenging time in society.

    Thank you so much for your support over the past few months in bringing this event to fruition!

He provided an important message, effective tools for participants and strong level of engagement and entertainment for a difficult topic in Mental Health. Anthony demonstrated that he was invested in and cared about making a difference in our school community. He is a genuine and caring individual that made everyone feel valued in our school community.

  • On behalf of everyone at SERV, I wanted to extend a resounding THANK YOU for your presentation yesterday afternoon. We are so grateful for the sheer joy you brought to our organization. You commanded an amazing amount of engagement from our staff, and the post-presentation buzz around our offices and residential group homes has been overwhelming positive.

    As you know, our staff have been experiencing compounded stress from the pandemic due to their positions as frontline workers. However, your compassion and understanding of SERV staff’s unique situation conveyed your sincere empathy and resonated heavily with our attendees during this difficult time. I am confident that the support and advice you shared with us will create a lasting impact on our organization.

  • We recently held an event with 300+ leaders at PepsiCo Canada on the topic of Diversity and Inclusion. Anthony delivered a powerful presentation for us and the feedback has been outstanding. One thing I appreciated was how he was able to weave in our core values throughout the talk. Most importantly, Anthony gave our leaders real-world actions to do the work of anti-racism. An all-around excellent presentation!

  • You truly have a gift for reaching through the screen and connecting with people. You listened so carefully to what we shared in our briefing and applied it in the most personal, inspirational, and moving way. You literally brought us to tears. It was, by far, the best keynote we have ever had the pleasure to share with our group.

  • Anthony is an incredibly engaging speaker, and he addressed important issues around anti-Black racism in such an approachable way. We would not hesitate to have him back to the firm to speak again.

  • Anthony was an excellent speaker, and I am happy you recommended him! He was professional and prepared throughout the whole process, and our AV team appreciated his attention to detail for his lighting, camera work, and presentation.

    His speaking points seemed to really resonate with our delegates, as they were very engaged in the chat during his presentation. Many of them also commented on the analogies and examples he used to strengthen his message. For example, his description of GPS technology to demonstrate the benefit of looking at a situation or idea from multiple perspectives was one that many delegates felt was very insightful.

    I personally appreciated his balance of humour and serious moments, as I felt this was a great way to engage the audience in a virtual environment while providing opportunities for learning and reflection.
