Rosie MacLennan

Olympic Gold Medalist

As the youngest of four children, Rosie MacLennan often tagged along to her older siblings’ gymnastic lessons. When she was 7, Rosie could no longer stand to simply watch from the sidelines and she finally got her turn on the trampolines. At age 11, Rosie began competing internationally and was the Canadian National Women’s Champion in 2005, 2009 and 2011.

Rosie’s competitive performances in 2011 demonstrated that she was a rising star in her sport.

Simon Whitfield

Olympic Triathlete

Simon Whitfield has relentlessly pursued excellence in sport – and in life – for as long as he or anyone around him can remember “My goal was always to be the best in the world at something,” says Whitfield, who at 17 followed that goal to Australia, a triathlon mecca and year-round training ground. Whitfield returned to Canada ready to take his racing to the next level. He did that with a bang, surprising the world with a riveting come-from-behind victory in triathlon’s inaugural Olympics, the Sydney 2000 Summer Games.

Simon has continued to pursue his sport with a passion and professionalism second to none.  The rewards have followed the hard work: 12 national championships, 14 world cup victories, and, perhaps most significantly, in 2008 at the Beijing Olympic Games, in a race where he was counted out by everyone but himself, a stunning silver medal.

Whitfield’s commitment extends beyond the racecourse.  He recognizes that with results come responsibilities, and takes very seriously his role as triathlon’s ambassador to Canada and a Canadian ambassador to the world.  He supports numerous charities and loves few things as much as visiting schools to speak to children about finding their own passions and setting goals.

 

Brian Williams O.C.

Hockey Season is Back!

The start of the new hockey season is always a great time to consider what events and activities you want to have over the 2015-16 year. Start planning your winter schedule and consider events featuring our amazing and talented group of all-star speakers. From sports media figures like Elliotte Friedman and Kelly Hrudey to Hockey Legends like Wayne Gretzky and Darryl Sittler. Whether you are looking for a speaker for your business event or charity function contact us today to find out about all the exciting hockey talent we have to make this season the best one yet!

Wayne Gretzky

For two decades, the ethereal Wayne Gretzky lifted hockey to new and dizzying heights while establishing himself as the greatest player of all time. He transcended hockey and was the most statistically dominant player in the history of North American team sports.

Gretzky helped Edmonton win four Stanley Cup Championships and three Canada Cup tournament titles during his illustrious career. He holds virtually every offensive record in the NHL and his tireless support of the game has contributed significantly to the popularity it enjoys today. He has contributed to countless charities, including his own “The Wayne Gretzky Foundation” which was founded in 2002. Through this Wayne endeavors to continue to enrich the lives of so many Canadians, not only in Hockey but through the many other causes he supports.

Darryl Sittler

Darryl Sittler is one of the greatest players to ever wear the Toronto Maple Leaf uniform. An inductee into the Hockey Hall of Fame, and voted by fans as the centre-man on the All-Time Leafs Team, Sittler may well be best remembered for two of the most remarkable performances in the history of the National Hockey League. On February 7, 1976, he scored six goals and added four assists for an NHL record total of 10 points in a game. That spring, he joined Maurice Richard in hockey history by recording five goals in one playoff game. To honour his illustrious career, Toronto retired Sittler’s number 27 On February 8, 2003. He has an incredible wealth of stories to share from the course of his outstanding career, as well as the lessons he’s learned working on charitable endeavors. One of the many ways Darryl contributes to the community is as a board member for the MLSE Team Up Foundation, alongside fellow former Maple Leafs captain Wendel Clark. Currently Darryl travels across Canada appearing at public speaking engagements, doing autograph signings, and making appearances for various companies, charities and organizations.

Elliotte Friedman

Friedman is no ordinary sports announcer. Currently a reporter for Sports net Hockey, Friedman has also covered 4 Olympic Games, the World Series, and every Stanley Cup since 1998. He is known for his dedication to his work, his keen insights into the world of sports and his dry wit. His blog series, “30 Thoughts,” has become a must-read for hockey fans and insiders.
Friedman has a unique perspective on success, derived from countless hours interviewing and interacting with players and coaches behind the scenes and off the ice.

Through personal anecdotes and principles learned from the world of professional sports, Friedman challenges and instructs his audience with life-changing ideas that are relevant for all.

Kelly Hrudey

In July of 1998, goaltender Kelly Hrudey retired from the NHL and traded in his skates for a microphone joining the cast of Sports net Hockey as a full-time analyst.Hrudey came to broadcasting after a fifteen-year career as a goaltender for the New York Islanders, LA Kings, and San Jose Sharks. He compiled a record of 271-265-88 with a goals against average of 3.43, with 16 shutouts. By providing hockey fans with some of the most insightful, well-researched and accurate commentary available, he was able to parlay his experience and knowledge of the game of hockey with a career in front of the camera.

A thoughtful and charming on-air persona, he is equally talented on stage in front of a live audience.
