Why Paul?

A Professional Speaker and an Actor and a Satirizer rolled into an unusual ball of corporate messaging and humour. With Paul you can expect anything and get everything you want for your conference. Hilariously funny, smart, motivating, inspiring and memorable, Paul creates conference summaries and keynotes tailored exactly to the needs of your audience.

Described by many as indescribable, he’s one of the most unique voices in the speaking industry. Paul’s talks are an adventure in content and laughter and song. He delivers his lessons and your messages with energy, passion, and fun.

Paul offers a range of funny keynotes, break-out sessions, and facilitates workshops focussed on workplace resilience, change, personal excellence, team building and recognition. His most famous keynote, The Ultimate Ending / Paul’s World Famous Conference Ending Summary, is a closing session he creates from each day’s presentations and activities. At the end of the conference, the audience is treated to an instant replay of their convention. They leave laughing, sometimes humming, and always remembering what you want them to remember most.

He’s a trained actor with degrees in Management and Theatre, a diploma in Career Counselling, training in Adult Education, has worked in an insurance firm, and has sung with the Canadian Opera Company. This strange wide and varied background and almost 20 years of professional speaking experience collide to give Paul a one-of-a-kind style and the ability to understand how to promote learning and excite every audience. This skill has been recognized by his peers as an inductee into the Canadian Speaking Hall of Fame.

His words and talents put him in front of large corporations, small businesses, associations, governments, and his favourite charities. He works across Canada, the United States, Europe, and right around the globe to Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

Paul performs in English, French, and occasionally Japanese.

Paul is also a published author. His book, The Reluctant Pilgrim, can be purchased at Amazon.com
