Lee’s talk gives educators research and perspective on why we do career education to build the value and understanding of why it matters. A future paleontologist/football player who attended high school in Peterborough, Ontario, Lee’s unique career path was a complete surprise. As a graduate of Royal Roads Military College with a double major in Oceanography & Space Science, he worked in the Arctic, deployed overseas, gave advice to engineers on broken down locomotives, designed advertising at Airports, and now is the founder and CEO of EdTech ChatterHigh, helping students get the conversation started about their future. Considered a ‘philanthropreneur’ in his approach to helping schools, Lee presents at educational conferences and has talked with thousands of teachers and students in classrooms across N. America about the trait ‘hope’, the value of career education, and why becoming adaptable matters. He founded “Canada’s Most Informed School” and “Most Informed Student” competitions, allowing schools to raise funds and students to earn scholarships by actively exploring resources and opportunities. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
