Challenging times call for a shift in perspective. Warren’s inspirational story and powerful message of hope deliver life-changing instruction on not only navigating, but embracing change; with focus, energy and confidence. His unique perspective on change management translates into real learning that is applicable to both personal and business growth.

Warren Macdonald works with innovative, forward thinking organizations and associations looking to foster “out of the box” thinking; the kind of thinking that led him to become the first double above-knee amputee to climb Mt.

Three years later, our leaders still speak about our offsite and how impactful your participation was in seeing the possibility of transformation. We needed to see that if we wanted another outcome, we had to change the way we looked at ourselves and our future and commit to doing something about it. - Jane McVeigh, General Dynamics Canada

Warren, you were warmly embraced with a standing ovation before you even reached the stage! Your message of perception and determination deeply touched the entire audience. It has renewed and reenergized our sales force to reach for new heights. We are so excited to have you work with us again. "Climb on"! - Laura Rodrigues, Director, Corporate and Employee Events / RBC Insurance

No testimonial I can give will do justice to what you brought to our Annual Franchise Partner Conference this year. I had the highest of expectations after booking you and completing the pre-event call yet you absolutely blew those expectations out of the water. I believe you received the only standing ovation of our three day event because you went out of your way to customize the message not only based on the details I'd given you earlier but also on the information you gleaned from attending several sessions earlier in the day. I have never seen a more captivated and inspired audience or a more dedicated speaker. Thanks Warren for helping to make this our highest rated conference yet! - David Christopher, Manager-People Department / 1-800-Got-Junk?

I hope you realize the impact you had on all of us! We found your talk so incredibly motivating and inspiring... I know it will have a profound impact on many of us for years to come. - Dave Lemmon, Managing Director / Smuckers Foods of Canada

It was a pleasure having Warren at our meeting. He is one of the most effective speakers that I have listened to. He has a unique ability to deliver his powerful message in an authentic and down to earth style. The attendees felt privileged that Warren made the effort above and beyond his speaking commitment to be a part of the event. I have and will keep recommending Warren. - Sanjeev Khosla, National Accounts and Broker/Dealers / Canada Life
