Celebrating @kimberlydawn_again

Our Senior Agent is an industry pro. With her background as a former #eventprof, Kimberly understands exactly how her clients think about their conference programming and helps planners visualize new and exciting ways that our speakers can fire up their audiences. 

When she's not making sparks fly at SA, Kimberly can be found obsessing over Daniel Ricciardo and RB Racing, fishing in her belly boat, creating custom art, or hugging trees during her hikes throughout Canada's West Coast. 

Kimberly doesn't settle for average and is continuously pushing the levers toward innovation, looking to explore the way things can be versus the way things have always been.

Join us in celebrating Kimberly!
This #iwd2024, we celebrate the women of Spoken Artists and our partners who continuously strive for equality. 

Join us this month as we share empowering stories from our speakers, highlighting the voices that inspire a more inclusive future.
Now Representing @iamjonathantorrens

While you may recognize him for his time as host of such popular Canadian television shows as “Jonovision” and “Street Cents,” it was his iconic role as J Roc in “The Trailer Park Boys” that bore him his mantra: “Just rock it.”

The genesis of this motto? A cane, his constant companion during the first season of the hit mocumentary. Initially hesitant to accept the J Roc role while recovering from a debilitating car accident, Jonathan saw the cane not just as a crutch but as a symbol of vulnerability. Yet, from this perceived weakness, he unearthed a superpower: the ability to embrace imperfections and turn them into strengths.

We love challenging the status quo here at SA which is why we're stoked to welcome Joe O'Connor to our roster of exclusive speakers.

Joe is the CEO and Co-founder of Work Time Reduction Center of Excellence, a consulting and research organization that specializes in reduced-hour, outcomes-focused work models.

By bucking the conventional nine-to-five structure and advocating for a shorter work week, Joe O’Connor emphasizes the critical role of mastering time, attention, and energy for heightened productivity.

In his talks, Joe explores the connection between a reduced working time, employee morale, and the overall success of an organization. As companies across the globe rush to adapt to the changing needs and expectations of their workforce, Joe’s insights provide valuable lessons on how to create professional environments that will not only flourish today, but also lay the groundwork for a viable and satisfying future of work.
