Character. Capacity. Creativity. Barry Lewis Green and Epic Engage™ believe and contend that education is the path to excellence, growth and change… and that it demands relentless attention to the encouragement of character, capacity and creativity.

This keynote is epic. It engages. It celebrates. It challenges. And it is fun! Most importantly, it fuels real and sustainable results on the ground, in the classroom, at work, and in the community.

I had the distinct pleasure of being in an audience in Montreal with Barry Lewis Green on the stage. Quite simply, Barry absolutely captivated us with his talent, his message, and his heart. The feeling of unity that Barry created in the room that day was extraordinary. I absolutely recommend him for your meeting or event. Joe Calloway
I have heard Barry as a presenter a number of years ago and have to say out loud that he is a stellar speaker. Engaging! Magnetic! I have seen many (understatement) speakers and have yet to be as impressed as I was by Barry. I highly recommend anyone reading to venture a conversation with this guy and not get excited about everything!” — Angie Smith, Director of Programs and Services at Newfoundland and Labrador Brain Injury Association
Barry Lewis Green was absolutely wonderful as a speaker on our staff retreat. He was exceptionally personable as well as flexible! He made connections with the group as a whole and as well with each and every individual. Barry has the ability to make each and every member of your team feel important and valued. It is a wonderful skill! Franca Smith, Senior Analyst, Government of Newfoundland and Labrador
