Tad Hargrave – Your host and facilitator:

TadHargrave_2016Tad is a hippy who developed a knack for marketing (and then learned how to be a hippy again.) For almost a decade, he has been touring his marketing workshops around Canada, bringing refreshing and unorthodox ideas to conscious entrepreneurs and green businesses that help them grow their organizations and businesses (without selling their souls). 

He does improv comedy semi-professionally, co-runs Edmonton’s progressive community building network TheLocalGood.ca, founded treetcarshows.com, indigodrinks.ca, socialyogiyeg.com, and the Jams program of yesworld.org. He speaks Scottish Gaelic and helps to run novascotiagaelsjam.com and is also a huge Doctor Who nerd. 

Tad currently lives in Edmonton, Alberta (traditionally known, in the local indigenous language of the Cree, as Amiskwaciy (Beaver Hill) and later Amiskwaciwaskihegan (Beaver Hill House) and his ancestors come primarily from Scotland with some from the Ukraine as well. He is drawn to conversations around politics, history, ancestry, healing and how those all intersect.

HadassahFosterHadassah Foster

Hadassah is an educational advocate who works with families and professionals to ensure that students who learn differently have the services and supports necessary to become successful adults.

Hadassah started this work when her own daughter was diagnosed with fibromyalgia before she was 8 (she’ll be 22 soon). After reaching out for help in several online communities, she began giving back and helping others. Four years ago,Hadassah listened to family and friends, left her fundraising work at the University of Southern California and began her private practice. Best choice she’s ever made.

An example of Hadassah’s work is in this short case-study: Fourteen months ago, the parents of a 7 year old child asked for her help in getting the student into an ordinary, regular education classroom at the local school. The essential problem was that, besides the fact that the child was on the Autism Spectrum, their first language was Taiwanese Mandarin, not English. And yet, all educational decisions were being made on the faulty belief that since student’s IQ was evaluated in English only, the student was seriously cognitively impaired. The goal of integration was accomplished after 14 months of meetings, letters, and passionate advocacy. handhassociatesusa.com
