We are excited to announce the launch of our new Notable Neighbours speaker series, where local leaders from a variety of industries and backgrounds chat with our students, families and community about their lives and careers. They will focus on finding one’s passion, entrepreneurship, persistence and overcoming obstacles.

Our inaugural speaker is Heather Willems, Graphic Facilitator, Bestselling Author and Visual Thinker. With Wetherby-Pembridge parents, she will explore how to identify “super powers” we all possess and how to incorporate those traits, as well as our children’s super powers, in setting and achieving family and community goals.  She had an amazing presentation to students where they explored identifying their personal super powers and visualizing goals.

We are so fortunate to have Ms. Willems visit out school. Professionally, she visualizes the biggest ideas of some of the world’s most influential companies by creating long-lasting records of ideas in a engaging, memorable way. As bestselling co-author of Draw Your Big Idea, Willems explores turning thoughts into action and dreams into reality, expressing ideas through drawing and pursuing one’s passion.

After 15 years of witnessing breakthroughs with clients, she wants to help more people achieve their goals. As Co-founder of ImageThink, she visualized big ideas for the world’s most influential thought leaders and companies including Disney, AOL, FedEx, Google, Lego, and NASA. Her work has been featured on The Today Show, Entrepreneur Magazine, Inc., Forbes, Mashable and the Wall Street Journal.

Whether she’s leading one-on-one executive training or speaking about visual thinking, she has a passion for making connections. She’s spoken at and collaborated with The Atlantic, SXSW, New York Times Small Business Summit, Columbia University, Texas Conference for Women, Comic-con, PTTOW! and many more.

An advocate for entrepreneurial artists, Heather lives and works in New York. As an adoptive family, her husband, daughter and lovable pit-mix-pup love hiking, biking and exploring their neighborhood in Brooklyn.
