Leadership Strategies from the Smokehouse

He won’t give you the typical motivational speaker spiel about how to follow your dreams, but through wry, self-deprecating wit and folksy wisdom, he’ll lay out the map of his own life’s journey of interpreting Indigenous principles and philosophies and translating them into practical applications for modern realities. And he’ll invite you to undertake your own journey of discovery on your leadership pathways.
