When he is not on the road performing, Stuart spends time writing songs that are heard around the world, and produces commercials that have been seen nationally. And when he isn’t writing, you may have seen or heard him on some of Canada’s biggest TV and Radio stations where he is often asked for his expert opinion on high level communication.  He is the winner of many awards including the National Entrepreneurs Award for Community Leadership.  Most recently, Stuart Knight launched the Top Ten Event, which has attracted sold out crowds and garnered almost 20 million media impressions.  He is the author of two books, You Should Have Asked – The Art of Powerful Conversation and The Madness of My Mind.

As a renegade visionary, Stuart Knight has taken gut wrenching risks and came out on top. Today, with hilarious stories and thought provoking insights, he shares the lessons he has learned helping people reach goals they never imagined they could attain.
