BYTE Conference 2022

at Brandon University


Our Keynote Speaker

Sam Demma

At 22 years old, entrepreneur, and keynote speaker Sam Demma doesn’t let his age define his drive or credibility. His goal is to provide people of all ages with the tools and strategies they need to become change-makers in their schools, businesses, communities, and in the lives of those around them. And it all started with…garbage.

He’s delivered two TEDx talks, interviewed over 100 educators on his podcast, “The High Performing Educator”, is the youngest board director of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers, and there’s no limit to where small actions will take this big thinker.
