My First National Speakers Bureau Talk

#Boozhoo,

Sorry It’s been awhile since I posted a blog submission. My family has had my undivided attention for this past few weeks.

I just wanted to talk about my experience out in St. John’s. From boarding the flight up until my return it has been one of the best trips to date. I was treated with the utmost respect and generosity by Brittany Lennox Memorial University and the hospitality of the local Native Friendship Centre was very warm and heartfelt. It is definitely a place I want to visit again.

I presented to Memorial University and the talk was approximately two and half hours. The conversations I had before and after the presentations were very inspiring and taught me a lot during my visit. Out of respect and privacy for the people I connected with I will keep those private but it was everything from creating social change, building   capacity. privilege, oppression to the spirits around Signal Hill.

It is moments like the ones I had in St. Johns that reassure my internal questions of whether or not I am on the right path.

Respectfully,

Eddy Robinson M.Ed

“Eddy Robinson was a massive hit at Memorial University, and also within the City of St. John’s. He graciously agreed to visit the local Native Friendship centre, where folks in the community were given the opportunity to meet and engage with him. Eddy is a wonderful speaker, and creates an environment where his audience feels comfortable and captivated. Eddy was energetic and passionate about his indigenous heritage – and the entire audience left feeling more aware of the histories of aboriginal people within a Canadian context”.
– Brittany Lennox, Executive Director of Student Life – Memorial University of Newfoundland Students’ Union
