BNI Golf Tournament for LiveWorkPlay

I contributed only a very short speech at this event, as a I yielded the floor to LiveWorkPlay Employment Task Force volunteer Matt Shipley instead, but this was a great day and I couldn’t let it pass by without making note of the incredible effort of the organizers Jocelyne D’Aoust and Denis Brisson (he’s in the video below and I am filming). $10,000 was raised, a new record for this event.

Potential can be exponential: reflections on 30 years of activism!

I very much appreciated the opportunity to share some of my life journey thanks to an invitation from Plenty magazine. Here’s a clip to hopefully entice you to explore the entire article.


“I do hope to see many of our best and brightest young workers choosing to make their mark in the evolving non-profit sector. At a time when one can “start a cause” with the push of a few buttons, it’s important to understand that those who are able to make a meaningful long term impact will be those who are engaged in an authentic social change process. They will challenge not only the conditions in their community, but will constantly examine their own role in the social change process.”

The Empowering Ability Podcast: Interview With Host Eric Goll

Julie and I met Eric Goll at the Presence to Citizenship Learning Exchange in Toronto in February 2017. Eric was in the process of launching his Empowering Ability podcast and invited me to join him in recording his first episode with a guest.

In this podcast I share some of the journey of LiveWorkPlay from its start in 1995 up until now, including the transition from day program to community-based supports.

We also discuss how families and individuals with a developmental disability can access Developmental Services in Ontario, and other dynamics within the systems environment as well as the community at large.
