THE EPIC CREW

Jon Butler is a community builder, speaker and entrepreneur … and works with Epic Engage™ on launching and leading broadCAST™ Live into 2020 and beyond. Jon was born and bred in St. John’s and is especially passionate about helping to build the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Newfoundland & Labrador.

He believes that thinking like an entrepreneur can help anyone become empowered at work, enact social change, and find purpose.

A nationally-certified school counsellor, educator, and ‘peer-elected’ leader (current VP of the Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers Association), Trent promotes the ‘human connection’, integrity-based leadership, and the power of relationships and works to build the personal identity, skill-set, and resilience of students, educators, community leaders, and professionals. “Trent is a ‘helper’ and ‘educator’ by temperament and training” (Barry Lewis Green)… a family guy, social justice advocate, and community volunteer.
