Meet Our April Speaker
Our next Speaker is Oshawa Mayor Dan Carter but he will not be talking about Oshawa.
Dan experienced some major challenges as a child and as a result he fell into drug and alcohol addiction and was homeless for most of his late teens and 20s.
Dan managed to overcome this and went on to enjoy a successful career in broadcasting including being the Executive Producer of programming for CHEX TV Durham. He took up politics in 2014 and became Mayor in 2018.
Dan’s background has also enabled him to become an exceptional motivational speaker on topics including leadership, the challenges of living in poverty, mental health and addiction.
He will share more of his incredible story with us at our next meeting and I’m sure it will be truly inspirational. Click here to register

One of the many benefits of membership is access to regularly scheduled gatherings of club members who share common interests. Some Activities are seasonal, while others run throughout the year.
