Published

2 minute read

It’s that time of year again as we come together and celebrate the success of our Red Deer College Kings and Queens! Red Deer College creates a culture of excellence and it is evident in the success of our athletics programs. Each year, we recognize those high achievers and we also highlight a speaker that brings synergies and added insight for our programs moving forward. On March 28th, we are proud and honored to bring in John Herdman as this year’s special guest!

 

As the Head Coach of the Canadian Women’s Soccer Team, John Herdman took a group once called a “struggling squad” to one that has captured the hearts and minds of Canadians. Under his leadership, the team won the bronze medals at both the 2012 and 2016 Summer Olympic Games, and also took a gold medal at the 2011 Pan Am Games in Mexico?the first Pan Am gold in Canadian soccer history. In his riveting talks, Herdman?who was a nominee for both the 2012 and 2015 FIFA Coach of the Year?stresses the importance of developing a high performance culture, learning to overcome adversity with grace, and the role of leaders to inspire trust, confidence, and success, whether it’s on the field, in the workplace, or in the home. Following breakfast, Canada’s Olympic Woman’s Bronze Medal Soccer Coach, John Herdman, will share stories of leadership, motivation and high-performance culture.

His message transcends sport and offers insight for success in both one’s personal and professional life.
