These are some of the presentations I have given to Students and Advisors across Canada. These presentations can be modified or combined. I am open to trying something new or different that would meet the needs of you school, group, or conference.

Brent Dickson’s Top Leadership Ideas (and why we do them) – keynote or smal group workshop– Do you need some ideas to energize your school this year or even next week. Brent presents some of the best ideas he has successfully used in his schools. He will discuss why the activities he shares can improve your school. He also shows you how to effectively beg, borrow, copy, and adapt ideas from elsewhere and make them work for you. – Appropriate for Advisors and/or Students
Team Building Workshops – large or small group workshop – Brent will work with your group to create a better team dynamic. The workshop will begin with icebreakers and move towards activities with imbedded leadership lessons that have application to your program. This workshop can be done with small or large groups from one hour to a whole day or weekend experience. – Appropriate for Advisors and / or Students
How To Run A Conference – large or small group workshop – Brent has been the chair of four Provincial Conferences in Alberta. He started the first ever Jr. High conference and two years later revived the Provincial Advisor conference which had been dormant for many years. He chaired the Provincial High School Leadership Conference at Centennial High School in 2009 and 2016. Brent will work with your group to help you run your own successful conference. This workshop can share a general formula for success or work specifically with your group to address the needs and concerns of your conference. After the initial workshop, Brent would be available for continued training, advice, and support. – Appropriate for Advisors and / or Students
