A message from our Symposium Keynote speaker Peter Katz

Peter Katz is a Juno Award- and Canadian Screen Award-nominated singer-songwriter who has spent the past 20 years touring internationally. He has been described by many of his fans and speaking clients as “a thunderbolt for the soul”. A gifted storyteller fluent in English and French, Katz’s high customized “keynote concerts” infuses his presentations with songs to inspire and empower audiences help audiences reconnect with their purpose and leave with a renewed energy around the importance of their work.

A four-time TEDx fellow, Katz’s experiential and unique keynotes help leaders and employees at every level create new opportunities for connection and elevation. His past clients have included Bell, Johnson & Johnson, Xerox, Royal Lepage, American Express, SickKids Hospital, Sun Life, Health Canada, and Royal Bank, to name a few. Katz is recognized as a pioneer in creating highly engaging virtual experiences and has performed for over 150,000 people virtually from his state-of-the-art broadcast studio, including an invitation to address the House of Commons of Canada.

With six albums to his name, Katz’s work has been described as “one of the most heartfelt, beautiful, and vulnerable records of the year… an astonishing record,” by renowned CBC Radio host Tom Power. His music has been streamed nearly 10 million times and his music videos have over 25 million views on YouTube, with his cover of Beyonce’s “Halo” reaching over 20 million views alone. His music is also regularly featured in film and television, including CBC Television’s 2016 Rio Olympics/Paralympics coverage.
