LEADERSHIP LECTURE SERIES

How Do We Do the Impossible? | Presentation by Cameron Chell

We have all faced and experienced “impossible” in our lives. But what is the key to overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds? In this talk, Cameron Chell will tell his own story of recovery from addiction and life on the streets of Vancouver’s East End. In the face of an impossible situation, thinking of the big picture can be daunting and even paralyzing. To achieve the “impossible,” we must focus on just “doing the next thing.”

Cameron has on multiple occasions addressed audiences of thousands at the “Power of Success” with Tony Robbins, in addition to speaking at the United Nations and TEDx Women Montreal (Listed with The 5 Most Popular TED Talks of All Time to Inspire You Like Never Before). He is a thought leader who has been a keynote speaker, and a panelist on topics ranging from technology to homelessness. Cam’s public addresses echo themes of overcoming hurdles and creating “the impossible” based on not just his business experience but also his life experience that has ranged from owning jets, to living penniless as an addict on the streets of Vancouver’s east end. 

This presentation will be videoconferenced at locations throughout the Edmonton Zone.
