Time & Location
About the Event
How to Achieve Impossible Goals: How this one diagram changed my life and my career - Tales from London, Saskatoon and Tokyo. And stories about Saskatoon Berries on a Gordon Ramsey menu, a delivery for Princess Megan at Kensington Palace, and an award winning poem. In this session, Alex will share a simple diagram that helped him to achieve goals other people said were “impossible”.
Born in Saskatoon, Alex’s career has taken him around the world, having lived and worked in London, England (for 15 years!) and Tokyo (2 years!).
Thanks to numerous strange twists of fate, an obsession with goal setting, and an abundance of luck combined with hard work, Alex achieved his goal of working for SREDA, and promoting Saskatoon.
Prior to that he worked for the Government of Saskatchewan, attracting foreign direct investment from around the globe and Cameco Corporation (selling Uranium!). He also ran his own business, which was an epic failure.
Alex holds a Bachelor of Business and Economics (Honors) and a Bachelor of Laws (Honors) both from the UK.
He was also appointed as the first ever British Honorary Consul to the Province of Saskatchewan in May 2013 and in 2017, he was awarded the Sovereigns Medal for his volunteer work.
Once, he got Saskatoon Berries on the menu of a Gordon Ramsey restaurant and delivered a Saskatoon made hat to Meghan Markle at Kensington Palace.
His poem “The Saskatoon I Know” has been seen by over 20,000 people and won an international award in Atlanta.
He has written one book of poetry: “All I Have is Words” and in his spare time watches re-runs of Family Ties, Friends and Murder she Wrote. His favorite movie is Top Gun.
He led SREDA to become the winner of the Best Economic Development Agency in Canada – and wants to build a zip line across the river.
