Presentations that inspire, challenge and entertain


Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”  -  Neale Donald Walsch


"Speaking to a very large group of our high school students, Ian provided many powerful and meaningful "life lessons" that were targeted to a teenage audience, that also resonated with people of all ages and walks of life.  If success of such a presentation can be measured in the level of class discussion that follows, then Ian's message was a smash hit, encouraging my students to express their thoughts in a manner that I have not seen all year.  I strongly recommend inviting Ian Evans to your school as a guest speaker".

Lloyd Lewis, Head of Cooperative Education, Guelph Collegiate Vocational Institute


"Ian was a great motivator for our group and I recommend Ian to any organisation that is looking for an inspirational speaker who shows that everyday people can do extraordinary things".  David Sharp, Partner DFK Richard Hill, Sydney Australia.

His 5,000 km solo trek across Australia by bicycle is something few people could ever fathom, let alone accomplish, and it's a perfect example of Ian's unique combination of vision, willpower and perseverance".     Hilary Eastmure - News Director, The Grand Radio 92.9, Fergus, Ontario
