Andrea Menard did a keynote presentation for the Indigenous Women’s Leadership Summit in November 2018. Knowing that her beautiful energy and talents would inspire the audience, we asked Andrea to speak on the subject of “Lighting Your Creative Fire.” Not only did Andrea deliver a thought-provoking talk but she had participants roaring with laughter and connecting with one-another on a very personal level. Andrea uses her voice, humour and creative talents to connect with audiences and deliver messages of love, respect and positivity. We’re big fans, so we asked her to participate again this year..
