“On behalf of the Valley African Nova Scotian Development Association (VANSDA), I wish to express our many thanks for your contribution to The Bridging the Gap – The Road to Employment Equity Conference. I have received many very positive comments.”
“Mr.Gobinder Gill introduced me to the world of public speaking. When I met him, I did not know anything about public speaking and it was a completely uncharted territory for me. He coached me for the TEDxStanely park that took place in 2015. It turned out to be an amazing experience because he was so patient and supportive. I learned a lot from him and because of him I got the confidence to explore this uncharted territory.”

” I was particularly delighted with how you managed to gently but firmly change the mind set of our ED and a couple of directors from resistance to being quite interested in pursuing some conscious work around this theme within our organization. I loved the way that you guided us in such a casual and engaging way to recognizing that we not only must but also can and will be able to make diversity and inclusion happen naturally within NatureKids BC.”

“ I was extremely moved by your presentation, as you were the most prolific, engaging and helpful speaker in the entire program at BCIT. Your story and passion to succeed has left an indelible impression on me.
Your simple tips to not only to succeed in life, but also in business, has motivated me to move forward in my own personal life and business.”

“ Your words made me realize that although you experienced the same or more intense discrimination, and I am sure it hurt you, you did not let it bring you down. You had chosen a path for yourself and you continued to move forward while fighting all these distractions. You did not let them make you stagnant. That is the day I realized my mistake. It took me a long time to realize it, but I am glad you got me there. I was letting that hurt make me lose my focus. I was letting it make me feel incompetent and insecure. I was losing control. I had lost control.
November 3rd is when I realized that I need to take that control back. And now that you have helped me get back on the right track, I hope I don’t lose sight of who I am. ”

“ We have had the good fortune of having Gobinder provide his informative and motivational workshops around Cultural Diversity in our environment and in the workplace, to a number of programs here at the Peter Thomson Centre for Venture Development at BCIT for over three years now. What stands out is Gobinder’s ability to really connect with his audience as his passion and sincerity is right out front in all if his presentations.”

In my capacity as the Producer of the TEDxStanleyPark 2015 and 2016 conferences, I worked intensely with Gobinder Gill – the Program Director – during the months preceding the delivery of each conference to their live and online audiences. During these months I observed that Gobinder:
- Coached his speakers to a world class standard
- Delegated effectively to his team mates
- Went the extra mile on countless occasions
- Was highly knowledgeable as to what it took to run a high quality event
- Got things done effectively and efficiently
- Was a skilled communicator and diplomat
- Was unflappable under highly stressful conditions
- Inspired others with his ‘can do’ attitude
- Was a strong and courageous leader.
Gobinder was a delight to work with. His reasoned thinking, fair-mindedness, limitless energy, positive attitude and boundless enthusiasm made him a great team-mate and valued leader. He was much loved and respected by all. In fact, if it wasn’t for Gobinder, I doubt that these TEDxStanleyPark conferences would have been the wild successes that they transpired to be.
Please feel free to call me if you would like to discuss Gobinder further.

I learned many new ways to work within the ethnic community and appreciate the opportunity to be able to expand not only our own businesses but also the business of our 800 members.

P.S. I received many comments that your passion is evident in your presentation. it’s encouraging to hear a speaker who loves what they do.”
