Ted started providing motivational speeches in 1983, the same year he played in his first NHL hockey game. He wanted to speak to as many youth, Indigenous organizations, and business organizations as possible to get his message across. Ted's key messages are about the power of perseverance and how to over come obstacles by never giving up.

Ted believes in speaking about Knowledge, Work, and Belief.
