Meet our Keynote Speakers

Chris Koch

Despite being born without arms and legs, born and raised Albertan, Chris Koch, has never treated his disability as a tragedy. Instead, it has fueled his dreams. Koch will reflect on his life as an avid traveler, marathoner, and farmer and how we can challenge ourselves to build the life we dream of.



Michael “Pinball” Clemons

Unabashedly emotional and impactful, CFL legend and Canadian Sports Hall of Fame winner, Michael “Pinball” Clemons, will talk about the potential in each of us to achieve what we set our minds to. 

Clemons joined the National Football League in 1987, and CFL’s Toronto Argonauts in 1989. He was nicknamed “Pinball” because of his running style — his diminutive size and extraordinary balance allowed him to “bounce” between defensive players, drawing comparisons to a pinball machine. Clemons went on to win the Grey Cup three times before becoming the head coach of the Argonauts in 2000.  In 2007, Clemons stepped down as head coach to become the chief executive officer, became vice-chair of the team in 2009 and was named the general manager of the organization in 2019. 

Clemons also founded the Pinball Clemons Foundation, a non-profit organization that empowers youth through education. Since foundation, it has been responsible for the construction of a hospital in Uganda, over 200 schools in developing countries, two orphanages in Haiti, and locally awarded more than 200 scholarships.

His achievements has allowed Clemons to be inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, Ontario Sports Hall of Fame, and Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame.
