Bruce Templeton has assisted Santa Claus in St. John’s, Newfoundland for 39 years and has had more than 1500 visits in a red suit. Those visits have generated some amazing memories for the children, the families and yes, for him. Bruce is the only living Santa in Canada, of the 20 in the world, to be a member of the International Santa Claus Hall of Fame. He has also been knighted as a Knight of St. Nicholas. Bruce has written three books and, through those efforts and with matching funds from Rotary and the Gates Foundation, he has bought polio vaccine for 300,000 children. Now Bruce would like to stand in front of your group and talk to you. He would like to tell you a few stories and take you on a journey with him. Join him in the parade, on the Flight to the North Pole and in the children’s hospital on Christmas Eve. Check out his TEDx Talk. You can also connect with Bruce directly at Man in the Red Suit.

Gary Summers is a Professional Speaker, Magician, Hypnotist and Hypnotherapist with a Masters Degree in Physiology and certifications in hypnotherapy and cognitive behaviour therapy. He conducts workshops on STRESS and WORKLIFE BALANCE as well as hypnosis seminars on stopping smoking and weight loss. He is owner of training4success; a company specializing in corporate training and employee evaluations. He has written a book called MIND BODY SOUL. There are 2 things in life that are worthwhile: RELEASE and PURPOSE. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be paid for doing what you loved to do? For some it is fishing… others golf… others long walks… for Gary it is magic and hypnosis. It is about being able to take people away from everyday life and give them an opportunity to escape into a fantasy world, a world where anything is possible. This is Gary’s release and he believes we all can use a release every now and then. His purpose or passion, however, is helping people. He believes this is his mission, the reason he was put on this earth. Making people laugh is very entertaining but making a difference in people’s lives is therapeutic. Phone calls, emails and handshakes all reinforce for Gary the fact that he has made a difference. It is his motivation to keep going to reach as many people as possible. Whether you are interested in entertainment or education, Gary would love to hear from you and work with you to customize a plan that works for you. Connect on the web with Gary.
