Today I'm joined by Sam Thiara. Sam is a storyteller, writer, speaker, coach, workshop facilitator, educator, and entrepreneur. He appreciates the opportunity to share and learn from his adventures, whether it is travelling to a far-off place or somewhere local. Sam is the founder and Chief Motivating Officer at Ignite the Dream Coaching and Consulting, a platform that engages people to define their path. His goal is to engage individuals in their personal and professional development. For his work, he was recognized by the Governor General of Canada with the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers and the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. Over the years, he has mentored hundreds, engaged thousands, and worked with more than forty-five non-profits.
Sam is a lecturer at the Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University, where he blends academic and professional experiences into a rich environment that captivates his audience. His current area of expertise is engaging with post-secondary institutions, administrators, and educators so that the student’s experience is at the centre point. He also provides personal development to young professionals who are trying to better appreciate their journey. Equally, he is also called upon to help with organizational alignment and improvements in companies.
