Western Canada’s Premier Broadcasters Conference

Going Beyond Normal

Seven World Championships; Six Olympic appearances; Five Olympic medals; Four Olympic Gold medals – Hayley Wickenheiser is a titan of sport and a leader both on and off the ice.

At the Western Association of Broadcasters Conference in June we’ll learn how Hayley Wickenheiser challenged normal and rose to become one of the greatest female hockey players of all time. In this inspiring and entertaining talk, Hayley shares what it has taken for her to buck the status quo and successfully drive change. She shares advice on how we can all push the envelope to succeed beyond our potential, even if facing obstacles as she did in a male dominated sport. This presentation will also touch on aspects of leadership and resiliency; and some of Hayley’s own experiences within the media landscape.
