Keynote Presenter – Cam Adair, is the founder of Game Quitters, the world's largest support community for video game addiction, serving 50,000 members in 85 countries. Named one of Canada's top 150 leaders in Mental Health. A talented hockey player, Cam's life took a dramatic turn at the age of 13 when he began to suffer from intense bullying, leading Cam to drop out of high school. He never graduated and never went to college, spending the next year depressed, living in his parent's basement playing video games up to 16 hours a day, until the age of 19 when he made a commitment to change. Cam has spoken at high schools and universities, TEDx events, leadership development programs, and international addiction conferences, including the RENEW Youth Summit in Tanzania, Africa, and the SHRM Annual Conference, the largest Human Resources conference in the world. His keynotes combine deep and meaningful personal insights with lessons on addiction recovery, personal development, social dynamics, entrepreneurship, leadership, creative, and psychology.
