“Jump the Fence” with Terry O’Reilly…
From CBC Radio’s “Under the Influence” program, Terry is known as a passionate (and humorous) speaker. His presentation is full of utterly remarkable stories of how organizations used intuitive thinking to achieve outstanding results. All they did was “jump the fence” in their thinking.

Terry has won hundreds of national and international awards for his writing and directing, and has worked with such notable actors as Alec Baldwin, Ellen DeGeneres, Kiefer Sutherland, Bob Newhart, Martin Short, and Drew Carey. Marketing Magazine chose Terry as one of Canada's "Most Influential" marketing people.

Nancy Sutherland

Nancy Sutherland

CEO, The Sunshine Foundation of Canada
As the sibling of a person with severe physical disabilities, Nancy saw the importance of Sunshine’s mission when asked to join as a member of the National Board of Directors in 2005. She helped influence the current vision to quickly increase the number of children served. In August of 2008, she was asked to become CEO to grow the organization and execute the strategic plan. This decision was made easy by the strength of the mission and the commitment of hundreds of volunteers and partners across the country – and the smiles of the children. Sunshine has since doubled fundraising results and has significantly reduced administrative costs.
