Try not to become a person of success, but a person of value.

- Albert Einstein


PROBLEM: Car crashes due to speeding/street racing, drunk/drug driving, and/or distracted driving are the number one preventable cause of death to our young people in Canada.

FACT: Contributing factors to car crashes and other risk taking behaviour (i.e.: bullying, violence, suicide, substance misuse/abuse etc.) are often associated with a person's confidence, self esteem, peer pressure, confusion and/or misinformation which can lead to life changing choices and therefore consequences.

SOLUTION: My work (my presentations & workshops); I have received thousands of messages from youth over the years stating that from taking messages directly from my presentation, they have made a choice from hereon in to never get in the car with a intoxicated driver.  To make healthier/safer choices!


Click to enlargeMy name is Heather Charlton and I am a motivational prevention speaker.  I have been publicly speaking with Canadian youth in schools since 1997.  I bring both personal and professional experience to my presentations.  From a personal side, I have first hand experience of what it is like to be a best friend, to make the dangerous decision as a teen to drive home impaired, and lose my best friend because of my decisions.  Youth comment their appreciation on hearing an honest story from drivers perspective.  I also have over 15 years experience working directly with youth in the community as a helper.  I hold a BA & an MA from UVIC in adolescent counselling.  Few motivational prevention speakers bring forward the personal, professional, and academic experience that I bring to presentations.  I continue to do my work as a public speaker due to receiving thousands of emails and letters from youth, parents, and professionals who are grateful for my work.  Youth/communities appreciate my work, therefore I continue to give a powerful message!

Thank-you for taking the time to check out my site and I look forward to working with you in the near future!!!
