“I have had the pleasure of listening to Ted Nolan and his sons address communities on numerous occasions. Their message is more than one of motivation and inspiration. It's authentic and genuine, and based on their own experiences. Always challenging everyone to contribute and lead to take personal ownership. Better role models you cannot find. I admire their humility and compassion for everything positive about the human spirit!”

“The 3 Nolan's are exemplary role models for First Nations children and families."
“The 3 Nolan's are exemplary role models for First Nations children and families. The pride that they have in each other is inspirational and encouraging for all of our people. The 3 Nolan's clearly demonstrate what can be accomplished when parents support their kids and kids respect their parents. The importance of the family unit in helping one achieve their dreams is a valuable message that they present to whoever they connect with. ”

Mr. Nolan touched on the subject of the importance of getting youth involved in recreation and supporting them in achieving their personal goals. The audience was extremely impressed and intrigued in Mr. Nolan’s keynote speech. I highly recommend any organization to invite Mr. Nolan to speak about his personal journey in life.”

“Mr. Nolan was our highest rated keynote speaker by delegates and the plenary room was full for his presentation.”
“I hired Mr. Ted Nolan for my annual conference in Winnipeg in November 2015. Our theme was "Embracing Canada's Potential; What's your Piece to Play?". Mr. Nolan spoke to the theme beautifully as he recounted his background as an aboriginal youth, his successes both personally and professionally and his now admirable role as a champion for aboriginal youth involved in sports through his involvement with the Ted Nolan Foundation. Mr. Nolan was our highest rated keynote speaker by delegates and the plenary room was full for his presentation. He also kindly agreed to do a meet and greet after his keynote presentation, which created quite the line up, but he made sure he met with every single person before he left the building. The process of working with Mr. Nolan and his son Brandon was incredibly easy and professional. Brandon always returned my emails promptly and we had a few meetings with Mr. Nolan leading up to the conference to brief him on the theme as well as the conference in general. He was always friendly and eager to structure his speech so that our audience found value in his message and it aligned with our theme. If all my speakers could be as professional and inspirational as Mr. Nolan, my job as a conference manager would be much easier. I would highly recommend Mr. Nolan to speak at any event; large or small.”
