Speaking Event & Charity Event in Canada

by Dan Gheesling

Dan-Gheesling-Speaking-Event-Charity-Event-Canada-EdmontonHey guys! It has been longer than I’ve liked since there has been an update on the blog, but that is because I have been hard at work on my new book!

Clean Your Own Mirror is progressing nicely, and I expect to be making some more phone calls to you guys later this week. :)

Outside of working on the book, I’m excited to be doing a Canadian University speaking event!

I’ll be speaking on leadership at this event, and it is open to the public.

Really fired up to meet the students at MacEwan University in Edmonton, AB!

Speaking Event Details

Dan-Gheesling-EdmontonNovember 19th (Tuesday) @ 5PM MDT

MacEwan University – 104 NW Ave, Edmonton, AB

After the talk there will also be a two-hour mix-and-mingle.

Charity Poker Event

While I am in Edmonton for the speaking event at MacEwan University, I’ll also be playing in a charity poker tournament that benefits The Edmonton Food Bank and Santa’s Anonymous.

I’m glad the scheduling worked out, because the proceeds are going to a great cause, and we’re going to have some fun in the process.
