In 30+ years, few people have been to bigger events, or worked with more world-class athletes than Barrie Shepley. 

Barrie was Canada's first Olympic coach who led Simon Whitfield to a gold medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games.  As founder of the famous Kids of Steel Triathlon Series, many of Canada's current top athletes, got their start in Kids of Steel.  Barrie has been an international TV analyst (Olympics, World Championships) and has experience with age group athletes, juniors, and pros.  He has helped athletes come back from injury, and win medals at Ironman and World Championships. 

Barrie's humorous behind the scenes stories of the biggest races in the world and stories how Canadians faired in those events.  Barrie will also share some of his 10 secrets to success.

Whether you are a runner, triathlete, duathlete or a coach, you will be inspired by his free 75min talk. 

To accommodate work schedules, and travel, Barrie will do two talks.  One at 5:30pm and one at 7pm.
