This year, the Vision Quest Conference & Trade Show turns 20! We are excited about this milestone anniversary, and the inspiring keynote presenters who will be joining us:
Inez Point, Award-Winning Pop Music Artist
Inez Point is an award-winning pop music artist with powerhouse talent and universal appeal. As one of Canada’s top Indigenous musicians, her blending of traditional native sounds with a love for contemporary pop has brought the best of her culture to the mainstream world. She has achieved much in her career so far, including co-hosting the 2016 Indspire Awards in Vancouver. Her latest album, Burn Me Down, was nominated for a JUNO Award and Western Canadian Music Award, and received Indigenous Peoples Choice Music Awards for Best Pop Album and Best Producer/Engineer. Inez is also a registered nurse, mother of two, and a nationally-recognized role model, just as dedicated to realizing her own dreams as she is to inspiring others to reach for theirs.
Joe Roberts, President and CEO of Skid Row
Joe Roberts is President and CEO of a successful multimedia company, who has faced and overcome many challenges. His business solutions have made millions for clients, across a variety of business sectors. He formed multimedia company Mindware, and in less than four years, led it to an 800% increase in business – making his first million before he was 35. Most amazing is that in 1989, Joe was living on the streets of Vancouver as a homeless skid row derelict. Through perseverance, determination and resilience, Joe pulled himself out of the darkness and despair, to become a highly respected business and community leader. He now uses his amazing story, insightful humour, and solid business experience to inspire individuals and organizations to achieve their own remarkable goals.
