Motivational storyteller extraordinaire.


A Professional Speaker and an Actor and a Satirizer rolled into an unusual ball of corporate messaging and humour. With Paul you can expect anything and get everything you want for your conference. Hilariously funny, smart, motivating, inspiring and memorable, Paul creates conference summaries and keynotes tailored exactly to the needs of your audience.

Described by many as indescribable, he’s one of the most unique voices in the speaking industry. He delivers his lessons and your messages with energy, passion, fun, and the occasional song.

Paul offers a range of funny keynotes, break-out sessions, and workshops focussed on workplace resilience, change, personal excellence, team building and recognition. His most famous keynote, The Ultimate Ending / Paul’s World Famous Conference Ending Summary, is a closing session he creates from all of the presentations and activities. At the end of the conference, the audience is treated to a replay of their entire convention. They leave laughing, sometimes humming, and always remembering what you want them to remember most.

He’s a trained actor with degrees in Management and Theatre, a diploma in Career Counselling, training in Adult Education, has worked in an insurance firm, and has sung with the Canadian Opera Company. This strange wide and varied background and almost 20 years of professional speaking experience collide to give Paul a one-of-a-kind style and the ability to understand how to promote learning and excite every audience. An inductee into the Canadian Speaking Hall of Fame, his words and talents put him in front of associations, large corporations and small businesses, governments, and his favourite charities. He works across Canada, the United States, Europe, Asia, and Down-under. Paul performs in English, French, and occasionally Japanese.

I was impressed with how adaptable you were to each group, and how you modified the day's message to respectfully and humorously work in the Executives' opening remarks. Your humorous message on wellness was exactly what we needed at the meetings. Pilot Insurance

The standing ovation at the end spoke for itself as did the staff and participation. Many of them commented on how well you connected with the audience and how much they enjoyed your humor. It was great to have an opportunity to laugh and learn at the same time.

Durham College, University of Ontario Institute of Technology

Paul does a remarkable job of researching the most recent happenings of an event, translating them in a hilarious way, and telling them back to his audience so that they all ask themselves, 'How did he know that?' as they strain through their laughter. I would not hesitate to hire Paul again.

Ontario Association of Youth Employment Centres

I have had many opportunities to seek many different keynote speakers and participate in their workshops all over Canada, and I would have to say that your high energy and fully engaging approach is one of, if not the best, that I have had the pleasure to enjoy.
