Municipalities of Saskatchewan featured Kendal as one of our keynotes for our 2021 Virtual Convention. The resiliency and adaptability that Kendal is known for were on full display, as although the format was much different than years past and undoubtedly different than what Kendal himself is used to, he was able to deliver a poignant keynote address to our members. In spite of being behind a screen, Kendal was as interactive and engaged as he would’ve been if he was in front of us in a room of 1000+ delegates. Our members heard his incredible story and took to heart his messages about strength and leadership.

We had the pleasure of working with Kendal at the Best of Calgary event we sponsored. His keynote was not only touching and motivating but also funny and light-hearted. He had the crowd experience a vast mix of emotions and kept them engaged at all times. After the keynote was over, you could hear the mumble in the crowd talking and reflecting on all the ways Kendal’s keynote touched their hearts and moved them. We had members of the audience ask for his contact info so that they could book him at their next event! Kendal is such a humble and well-rounded human being, it is always such a pleasure to interact with him. Thank you again, Kendal! We hope to be able to work with you again soon
