Tim McClure - Keynote Speaker

On February 4th, 2011, Tim McClure’s life changed forever when he was diagnosed with inoperable Stage 4 cancer. Over the course of the next 12 months, Tim’s life and the lives of his family and closest friends would be impacted more than they could have ever imagined.

After aggressive chemotherapy and radiation treatments, Tim’s life has taken a remarkable and unheard of turn for the better. Words like ‘miracle’, ‘incredible’ and ‘amazing’ are being used by medical professionals to describe his recovery.

Tim is now an international brand and leadership consultant, an executive speaker for TEC Canada, and a keynote speaker for Healthy Minds Canada. He now speaks to Fortune 500 companies, professional sports teams, high schools, universities, and at hospital and foundation events about overcoming obstacles, beating the odds and living life to the fullest.

Over the past 4 years, Tim has been an Honorary Chairman of the Road Hockey To Conquer Cancer, in support of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
