Resilience. Courage. Inspiration. Margaret Trudeau epitomizes these traits and more. We thank her for sharing her message of hope for those living with mental health issues. And we thank our valued clients and their guests for participating in our May Speaker Series events in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto. Here’s what some of you had to say:

“Mrs. Trudeau shared personal perspectives that are most times difficult to discuss, privately or publicly. She did so with strong credibility, grace and humour. This was the best TE Wealth speaker event I have attended so far”

“Margaret Trudeau was an excellent speaker and provided valuable insight into mental illness… a subject often misunderstood.”

“This is a topic very close to home for us. It was very enlightening to have someone share their experiences with us without feeling any shame. Ms. Trudeau showed great respect for her audience, she gave of herself without question. Great evening!”

Did you miss this event? Don’t worry – a seat awaits you at our next one in the Spring of 2017! Details to be provided at that time.
