Protest, civility and heckling in sports, entertainment and politics


Mr. Schultz’s career spans five decades of commitment and involvement in the Canadian educational marketplace.

Michael spent ten successful years in the Canadian publishing business. During the 1970-80s, he traveled throughout Canada and the United States, producing and selling learning resources.

He also spent approximately another 25 years in the educational field at the secondary level teaching a variety of subjects in the Peel District School Board. During that time Mike authored a number of learning resources himself in fields like Career Management, International Business and Entrepreneurship.

During the late 1990s, he was a renowned spokesperson for the field of Youth Entrepreneurship, a topic then enjoying considerable growth. His weekly column, ‘Young Entrepreneurs’, was featured in the Toronto Star’s Business Section.

He then shifted gears in the early 2000s and became an authority on International Business as global emphasis dominated new curriculum.

To that end, Michael has authored learning materials in many Business subjects including International Business and Entrepreneurship. He has taught and traveled widely as an educator in countries such as Japan, Korea, England and the United States.

More recently, Mr. Schultz has been operating his own business focusing on educational writing and on-line teaching with Queens University’s Faculty of Education. He also presents to groups on personality preferences and temperaments.

His latest work focuses on heckling – in sports, in entertainment and in politics. He is an informed speaker who deals with the subject matter in a humorous and entertaining fashion. Come and learn more about civility and the act of speaking out.

His recent book is called HECKLE: NOTES FROM THE PEANUT GALLERY (2013) and it focuses on the increased activity in heckling worldwide.
