Speaker Bio's

Speakers Include:


Chris Koch    "If I Can"

Born missing his arms and legs, it was established early in his life that Chris would be raised with no pity or sympathy. Living in a small farming and ranch community in Southern Alberta, Chris grew-up as any other small town kid; causing mischief at school, getting in trouble when his grades weren’t good enough, and helping on his grandpa’s farm operating equipment whenever possible. Determined to be just like everyone else, Chris graduated high school, continued to University, and worked away before returning to settle in Calgary. Chris's story of "If I Can" will inspire you to live your life to it's fullest potential.




Suze Casey      "Belief Re-patterning" 

You know that it is important to think positively, but the way to get there is the missing piece. Wish you could just “switch” those negative thoughts? Harness that pesky Inner Critic? Get back on your feet when life knocks you over?

Based on her best-selling book, Belief Re-patterning: The Amazing Technique for “Flipping the Switch” to Positive Thoughts, Suze will demonstrate why having a strong Inner Coach is imperative for success in all areas of your life. She will share her 7 step system to get you back on track. Einstein said “Problems cannot be solved by the same mind set that created them”.  Together Suze will help re-wire your old thought patterns, turn challenges into stepping stones, and get your mind firing on all cylinders.
