One of the most satisfying and enjoyable parts of my career is that of a Keynote speaker. While I’ve had the pleasure and opportunity to speak on a wide variety of topics including many that relate to marketing, communications and social media it is my environmentally focused Keynote’s that I am focusing on more and more.
With that in mind, I’ve decided to note in this article a few of my more popular Keynote Presentations that are proprietary and not connected to my volunteer presentations with Climate Reality Project Canada.
I would be happy to deliver any of the following Keynotes to any business group, community group, government agency or organization, professional seminar, conference or any other suitable situation. Please contact me directly to discuss fees, requirements and availability:
LEADING THE GREEN REVOLUTION – HOW TO INSPIRE MASSIVE CHANGE IN UNPRECEDENTED TIMES
Description: Within all aspects of society, the economy and communities abroad there are individuals who have chosen to become agents of change and champions of the environment. These Green Leaders are abundent with passion and desire, but sometimes lack the requisite knowledge when it comes how to lead others to make the same green choices as they have. This presentation will offer green leaders information, tips, ideas and even more inspiration on how to deal with deniers, how to inspire others and how to lead the Green Revolution with success!
THE SUSTAINABILITY OF SUSTAINABILITY
Description: As human kind attempts to push towards a sustainable lifestyle, our enthusiasm risks making the entire sustainability movement not sustainable. In this Keynote presentation, the ideas driving the sustainability movement are examined as well as the potential traps that can stop the movement cold. In addition, the various motivators to propel change are discussed. This keynote involves elements of humour, inspiration and personal self discovery and is suitable for government and corporate strategic planning conferences or events.
Description: The issue of Climate Change has evolved to where it is no longer a fight over conflicting science, but rather one that is fought through the manipulation, or spin doctoring of information. With the ultimate prize being the hearts, minds and dedication of the general public, this Keynote examines the history of using doubt as a weapon as well as how doubt can be both fought and defeated. This is an inspirational and motivating talk perfect for conferences and large events. The content in this Keynote was featured at TEDx UOIT in January, 2011.
UNDERSTANDING ECO-FRIENDLY AUTOMOBILES
Description: As the automotive industry draws closers to legislative deadlines in North America, Asia and Europe with regards to minimum fuel efficiency standards, there has been a race amongst automakers to develop more fuel efficient and ennviromentally progressive vehicles. For consumers looking to make a greener decision with their next car purchase, the options can be both overwhelming and confusing. As one of Canada’s leading Eco-auto experts, Eric Novak will explain the difference between EV’s, hybrids, plug-in hybrids, clean diesel, fuel cell and other fuel efficient technologies, as well as how not one technology is right for all.
UNDERSTANDING THE MANY HATS WE WEAR
Description: In our multi-tasking world, people are often required to wear many “hats” in one day. From professional, to personal to social, we wear many hats depending on need. However in times of crisis, which hat do we tend to wear first? Knowing this helps us to understand how we deal with complex issues such as climate change. This insightful and inspiring Keynote is ideal for professional associations and environmental conferences.
THE MEDIA AND CLIMATE CHANGE
Description: Look in the dictionary to find the definition of “Media” and you will learn it is simple the plural of “Medium”. Media is simply a method to deliver a message, but as new forms of media continue to evolve, it’s impact on complex issues such as climate change have reached critical and never seen before levels. This in depth Keynote examines both the growth of new forms of media and how they are changing debates forever. The Keynote is well suited for educational and professional conferences that focus on the media as well as the art of communications.
AN ENVIRONMENTALIST. A DAD. A MISSION. A PURPOSE.
Description: As a father of four children, an environmental activist and a media professional with 20 years experience, I combined my passions and expertise to launch EnviroDad.com – a resource site for parents who understand that stewardship of the environment is a critical aspect of parenting. This Keynote describes the motives behind EnviroDad and how the lessons learned can be applied by all parents. It is perfectly suited for conferences or seminars relating to children, education, parenting and environmental stewardship.
