“Humility, passion, eloquence, and a self-effacing sense of humour - as a motivational speaker, Heather has it all. Her Olympic story touches on themes like acceptance of others, turning negatives to positives, and daring to dream big. 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."

“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."
~ Peter L. Tierney, General Manager, Fisher & Paykel Appliances Canada, Inc.
“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.”
~ Mandy Dreyer, National Cycling Centre Hamilton
