More about Keynote Frank O’Dea:
This year, we are proud to present Frank O’Dea as our keynote speaker. As a young man, Frank O’Dea was a homeless person, living on the streets panhandling for nickels and dimes. Today, he is a celebrated business person and humanitarian having launched and led a number of successful not-for-profits and businesses, including the Second Cup and Street Kids International. He is an inspiring speaker who shares his lessons-learned from his days of living on the streets to his receiving the Order of Canada.
