Looking for something unique and original… yet effective and inspirational?


Finally, you’ve found

the motivational speaker who really stands out from the crowd.

“I have been looking for over 20 years for a speaker who lived up to the promise to tailor their presentation… Shirley Best is the first to meet, let alone exceed my expectations in that regard… you displayed a familiarity with road building jargon, issues and technical detail that had my members believing that you must have spent considerable time in the industry. All customization aside, I would be remiss in not adding that your presentation was just plain hilarious. You had the audience in the palm of your hand.” Ontario Roadbuilders’ Association

“An exceptional show – a true Business Comedy!” – Shell Canada

Appropriate, wholesome, and enjoyed by the entire group” – Scotiabank
