Heather’s desire to see each person in the room reach their goals…

“Though everyone will get a kick out of seeing her Gold medal, it’s Heather’s desire to see each person in the room reach their goals that will have a lasting impact. Smart, focused, and with a down-to-earth sense of humour, she used her experiences to craft a talk that encouraged our audience to simply go for it. Heather is extremely easy to work with and genuinely cares about affecting the world around her – something that really showed in her preparation for and participation at TEDxUW. I would give her three thumbs up, but I only have two.”

– Ron Kielstra, Director Speaking Relations, TEDxUW 2012


Heather is a shining example of setting goals, perseverance, determination…

“[…] It was her message’s relevance to our advisers that far surpassed our expectation! Heather is a shining example of setting goals, perseverance, determination and overcoming obstacles, all of which relate to a business setting. On top of that her personality and ability to engage and interact with an audience made her a highlight for all that attended. […] My only regret is that we didn’t give her more time on stage for a longer Q&A session. I would highly recommend hiring Heather for any event you want to motivate and impress!”

– Greg Fox, Regional Manager, Sun Life Financial



Heather’s presentation was definitely a critical success factor for our event…

“She truly delivered the results we were looking for. We needed a wow factor to ensure that the over 100 attendees would have fond memories of the occasion and this is exactly what Heather’s presentation delivered. We had the President of the NKBA advise us the next day by e-mail that this was the best event they have had and that she had received a number of messages telling her what a great evening it was.
Heather’s presentation was definitely a critical success factor for our event and we would highly recommend her for any events that require a speaker that can deliver the wow factor.”

Humility, passion, eloquence, and a self-effacing sense of humour…

“Humility, passion, eloquence, and a self-effacing sense of humour – as a motivational speaker, Heather has it all.

And best of all, she tells it in a way that’s entertaining to any audience, be they 6 year old 1st graders or established business executives.”

I left feeling that I was in the presence of one of the most talented and inspiring speakers…

“With a voice soft and confident, Heather provided invaluable, heartfelt views on how each and every one of us could pursue the best of ourselves. Through her very honest reflections of her life and the life of being a small town girl pursuing that Olympic dream made the pursuit of achieving our own personal goals, whatever they may be, as truly attainable with drive, persistence and hard work. I left feeling that I was in the presence of one of the most talented and inspiring speakers who helped each individual in attendance find the Gold Medal Olympic athlete of life within themselves.”
