He self-taught and migrated to Canada in 1999 & joined Toastmasters. This is a real rags-to-spiritual-riches story! http://CoachRakesh.com
ROSEMARY GHIZ - SOMETIMES, YOU JUST NEED TO LEAVE!
Rosemary Ghiz grew up in a small city, being told she was not smart or good enough. School was particularly difficult especially math. Feeling heartbroken and 'knowing' there was something more for her, she found support in a theatre director who inspired her to see that there was a world out there to explore. But she needed more than inspiration... she needed to move away, far enough to recreate herself the way she saw herself. Today, Rosemary empowers women to build their financial empire -- balance, wealth and abundance -- starting with a money mindset blueprint. Not half bad for a girl who was told she'd never amount to anything! Come get inspired by her story! http://rosemaryghiz.com
DAN GAGNON - FEATURED PERFORMER
Dan Gagnon is a singer/songwriter from SW Ontario who decided to ditch his white collar for bar rooms, whiskey and original music based on his experiences... mostly screwing up relationships over the years.

Listen to Dan share the journey through story and song. https://www.instagram.com/dg_bigottercreek/

Simmone Park is a jill of all trades and master of a few. Her global career spans ten countries, but we are not here to talk about that!

Simmone is as intelligent and articulate and she is hilarious.... She has performed at some of the best (and worst) comedy clubs in Canada and the US. Expect AHA after AHA after AHAHAHAHA! http://simmonepark.com
