Andrew Thibodeau was a teenager in the 1980’s, so he admits to having a mullet haircut! Since 1992 Andy has delivered thousands of fun inspirational presentations to schools and conferences across North America. Two million people have seen him speak in all 10 Canadian provinces, the Yukon and 38 states. Over 50% of Ontario’s high schools have had him speak!
Andy teaches student leadership because he was always an active student leader: Student Council VP in Grade 8, Student Council President in high school, and Orientation Week coordinator at King’s College at the University of Western Ontario.
Andy lives in London with his best friends, his wife Elizabeth and his daughters Torry & Isla.
Andy attended elementary and high school with our conference coordinator, Stu Saunders! Andy & Stu were student council executives at Laurier Secondary School in London in 1988-1989. This was when Much Music named their high school the “Most Spirited School in Canada” in the MOGA (Most Outrageous Group Activity) contest.
Workshop Description For “CAN I COUNT ON YOU?” Improving Your Reliability as a Leader.”
Busy? Stressed? Dealing with too many things as a student leader? Andy can help! This session addresses the concepts of “time management” from a unique and very interesting perspective. Trust is the foundation for loving families, fun friendships, spirited students’ councils, successful businesses, and effective leaders. Yet people earn the trust of another by being reliable. Andy offers useful and immediately applicable advice on improving your reliability. Through his insights, Andy demonstrates how increased reliability improves one’s time management!
With all student leaders balancing their activities with school, family and work commitments, this program can transform how they organize their day and their priorities!
