Madelaine McCallum

Keynote Speaker: Madelaine McCallum


Madelaine McCallum is a gifted dancer, motivational speaker, facilitator, and MC — a true, multi-faceted creative. She is from Ile a la Crosse, Saskatchewan and brings passion with a gentle yet powerful presence to the stage whether she is there to share one of her inspiring speaks or she has been asked to dance, or MC.

While life was not always easy for Madelaine, she left her home community with the goal to break unhealthy cycles of addiction — her story of survival is inspiring. 

When Madelaine dances, you feel her connection. When she speaks, you feel her authenticity. She shows you and helps you feel the invisible lines of connection we all share, through her stories and her life experiences.
