From Soroptimist International of Central Alberta

‘Bullying Ends Here’ is a one hour presentation for youth or adults and aimed at all forms of bullying including cyberbullying. ‘Bullying Ends Here’ is requested around the world for its award winning presentation and proven results to not only change lives, but save them!

In Tad’s words, “I have been requested to speak to schools all around the world. I will go anywhere, at anytime, to spread this important message. “  900,000 reached, 50,000+ emails received, 51 lives saved, 940 presentations.

In January, Tad was recently awarded the Order of Merit of the Police Forces by the Governor General of Canada. We are encouraging educators, teachers, counsellors and more to attend and hear him first hand, and hopefully have him speak at their school in Central Alberta. Women and men are welcome and we hope they will purchase their tickets today, to celebrate International Women’s Day, watch some amazing women win our awards, and hear a fabulous speaker.

Check out Tad’s TEDx presentation… It’s an incredibly compelling story of survival.

After 15 years as a TV reporter with Global and CBC and as news director of RDTV in Red Deer, Duane set out on his own 2008 as a visual storyteller. During this period, he became fascinated with a burgeoning online world and how it could better serve local communities. This fascination led to Todayville, launched in 2016.
