Canadian Badlands Tourism Development Conference




Paul Huschilt - Professional Speaker, Actor and a Satirizer rolled into an unusual ball of corporate messaging and humour

With Paul you can expect anything and get everything you want out of this conference. Paul is hilariously funny, smart, motivating, inspiring and memorable.


Described by many as indescribable, he’s one of the most unique voices in the speaking industry. Paul’s talks are an adventure in content and laughter and song. He delivers his lessons and messages with energy, passion, and fun.


Paul offers a funny keynote focussed on workplace resilience, change, personal excellence, team building and recognition. His famous, The Ultimate Ending / Paul’s World Famous Conference Ending Summary, is a closing session he creates from each day’s presentations and activities. At the end of the conference, you will be treated to an instant replay of the entire convention. It will leave you laughing, possibly humming, but certainly remembering what we want you to remember most.
