Pickford Business Coaching & Consulting , BKIN, BA – Bachelor of Kinesiology


As a business coach and international speaker, I’ve had the privilege of speaking at numerous events. However, there was something truly exceptional about my recent experience at the Dance Teacher Expo in Toronto, Canada. The energy that radiated throughout the event, the eagerness of the attendees to learn and grow, and the incredible networking opportunities all combined to create an unforgettable experience. I want to reflect upon the power of learning events, the importance of investing in oneself, and the gratitude I have for the event team that made it all possible.

Embracing the Energy of a Learning Event:

The Dance Teacher Expo was not just a gathering of individuals, but a convergence of passion, talent, and ambition. The air was electric with the collective drive to enhance teaching techniques, expand business acumen, and ultimately improve the lives of dancers and students. As a business coach, it was invigorating to witness the dedication and hunger for knowledge displayed by the attendees.

The atmosphere of a learning event is unlike any other. It’s where ideas spark, creativity flourishes, and boundaries are shattered. Being part of such an environment as a speaker amplifies the responsibility to deliver valuable insights and practical strategies. The thirst for knowledge in the room further fuels my own passion for helping others grow and succeed.

The Power of Networking:

One of the most powerful aspects of events like the Dance Teacher Expo is the opportunity to network and connect with like-minded individuals who share a common goal. It is during these interactions that great ideas are born and collaborations take shape. Conversations flow seamlessly, and a sense of camaraderie develops, fostering an environment of support and encouragement.

For business owners and teachers, networking at events like this is invaluable. It opens doors to new perspectives, strategies, and even potential partnerships. The connections made can lead to long-lasting relationships and a network of individuals who can provide guidance and support when needed. Witnessing these connections being forged is always inspiring, and I am grateful to have been a part of it.

Investing in Self: A Catalyst for Growth:

I cannot emphasize enough the significance of investing in oneself. The fact that the attendees at the Dance Teacher Expo chose to dedicate their time, effort, and resources to expand their knowledge and skills speaks volumes about their commitment to growth. As a business coach, it fills me with joy and admiration to see teachers and business owners investing in themselves to better serve their clients and elevate their profession.

When individuals invest in their personal and professional development, they send a powerful message to the world—they are serious about their craft, their clients, and their own growth. It is this commitment that propels them to new heights, helps them overcome challenges, and positions them as leaders in their industry.

Gratitude to the Event Team:

I would like to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude to the event team at the Dance Teacher Expo for organizing such an amazing event. The seamless execution, the attention to detail, and the warm hospitality created an environment conducive to learning and growth. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to share my knowledge and insights with the attendees.

Speaking at the Dance Teacher Expo in Toronto was an inspiring experience that reminded me of the transformative power of learning events. The energy, passion, and hunger for growth exhibited by the attendees were truly remarkable. Witnessing teachers and business owners investing in themselves to level up their knowledge and abilities was incredibly motivating. I am grateful to the event team for their dedication in organizing an exceptional event that fostered an atmosphere of collaboration and inspiration.

As a business coach and international speaker, events like these fuel my passion to continue empowering others and supporting them on their journey towards success. I look forward to more opportunities to connect with like-minded individuals, share insights, and create lasting impact.

Remember, investing in yourself is never a wasted effort. It’s a powerful catalyst for growth, enabling you to serve your clients, your industry, and yourself in the best possible way.
