Keynote Speaker:


Riaz Meghji is a human connection expert and bestselling author of Every Conversation Counts: Human Connection That Build Extraordinary Relationships. After one conversation led him to take a dramatically different career path that changed his life for the better, Meghji became dedicated to exploring the ways that authentic human connection can change lives and organizations. A natural storyteller, he shows audiences how to create engaged and connected cultures through the power of candid conversation. 

Meghji is an accomplished broadcaster with 17 years of television experience, interviewing experts on current affairs, sports, entertainment, politics, and business. He has hosted for Citytv's Breakfast Television, MTV Canada, CTV News, TEDxVancouver, and the Toronto International Film Festival.

A respected thought leader on human connection, Meghji is a highly sought-after keynote speaker and moderator with a proven ability to conduct engaging, in-depth conversations across various disciplines. His insights have been featured in Fast Company, Harvard Business Review, and Financial Post.

Off camera, Meghji dedicates himself to philanthropy and causes he cares about, including Canuck Place Children's Hospice and Covenant House. He holds a degree in business from Simon Fraser University and studied leadership communication at Harvard's Extension School and the Canadian Management Centre.
