Meet Michael Cameron and Trish Garner!

Friends, we are less than two weeks away from Winspiration Day Vancouver! While the event in its entirety is going to be awesome, we want to introduce more of our speakers, who are incredible and inspiring individuals.

So…meet Michael Cameron and Trish Garner!

Michael Cameron

Michael Cameron head shot

Mike Cameron will be this year’s opening keynote speaker, and his story is emotional and full of inspiration. He’s the CEO of Axiom Mortgage Solutions, one of Canada’s top mortgage brokerage firms and a professional speaker. He is an avid climber (both rock and ice) an Ironman, a yogi, a runner and most importantly, a human being. As a serial self improvement enthusiast, Mike’s mettle was tested when he suffered a catastrophic loss in 2015.

He will share his inspiring tales of triumph and tragedy, will teach you resilience, and ultimately lead you to understand that when something’s gotta change…it might be you.
