Lyndsay Wells is a professional speaker, facilitator, writer, spoken word poet and program developer who manages a thriving community education department at Vancouver Island Crisis Society.
Lyndsay began her professional career with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police where, as the self proclaimed "second worst police officer in Canadian policing history," she apologized to the first person she ever arrested and ran over her partner's foot with an unmarked police car before she made the decision to switch career paths.
She has appeared on Food Network Canada, was the $20,000.00 winner of an online contest The Real Women of Philadelphia and entree host of the Real Women of Philadelphia website through Kraft Foods Canada in 2011. She has been published in the International Journal of Child Youth and Family Studies, has spoken at many conferences, including the national conference for the Canadian Association of Suicide Prevention, and created the highly successful programs "Speak Out, Reach Out, Help Out" and GRASP (getting real about suicide prevention) that have been delivered to thousands of students, grades 4-12, via The Crisis Society, in Vancouver Island School districts and beyond.
Just a quick note to let you know what a wonderful speaker, poet, and woman you are. You knocked it out of the park last night when you spoke to the members of my Zonta club. They loved you, your message, your experience and your passion! It was so relevant to the mission of our group which is to empower women to improve their lives, Say No to Violence and to have a voice in today’s crazy, mixed up world.
I am so proud to know a woman like you. You rock!!!

As an award-winning speaker and innovator, I will bring new life and connection to your next event. Contact me, and we can design a workshop or presentation that fits the needs that you have today.
What is it that is holding you in the present and keeping you from accessing your brightest future? This presentation is built on years working with incubation groups who are trying to stay ahead of the next wave. I will help you and your team figure out, not just what is coming next, but how to shape what is coming next.
I developed this interactive presentation while working with NGOs in South America. While there were plenty of interactions between different teams, the connections between them were never utilized efficiently. We worked to establish how to form inter- and intra-network connections that allow for better workflow and results with longer term stability.
We all know how to start a sale, but what are the final steps that only the most successful salespeople know about? Using my patented Beyond Closing techniques, this workshop will help your sales team learn how to leverage their sales into the future and feel great about the work that they are doing, both for themselves and their clients.
