He knows first hand how to overcome adversity and build a rewarding and fulfilling life and he is sharing his knowledge and wisdom with others to support them in creating the life of their dreams.

He is no stranger to adversity and challenges. He was born in the inner city projects of Corpus Christi Texas to a single mother with six children. Although he dropped out of high school in the 11th grade, his commitment to living an extraordinary life supported him in defying the odds.

After approximately eight years, he was then faced with another set of challenges as he experienced the pain and humiliation of divorce, bankruptcy and foreclosure and found himself contemplating suicide.

Bankrupt and alone, he committed to rebuilding his life which propelled him to begin a 25 year inner journey of personal transformation which resulted in him discovering his true self and his passions for living. As a result, he is now happily married (17 years) and living his dream of living an extraordinary life while being in service to others. Through his books, lectures and radio program he now coaches others on how to become genuinely happy with their lives and live the lives they were born to live.

Recently, Coach Michael was on our show talking about A New Conversation Can Lead To A New Culture Of Manhood.

During the conversation, Coach Michael talked about:

– Some of his background and how his mother inspired him
– When and why did he decide to become a full fledged entrepreneur and some of his entrepreneurial journey
– Overcoming the darkest period of his life which included getting divorced, bankrupt and living out of a car for two years
– Why did he write the book
– Some of the five illusions of manhood
– The five stages of evolution of men
– The need for men to be emotional and connected
– If men are ready to be authentic
– “Masculinity in itself is not toxic.”
– An authentic man goes to his heart
– The illusion that men need to use sexual conquest as a gauge for manhood
– That many men cannot connect to joy
– The most important resource that a man can have is a community of men
– The three most difficult words for men to say “I need help”
– Men need to stop competing and start connecting

The official launch of the Canadian Black Chamber of Commerce (CBCC) takes place on Thursday April 25th, 2019 at Metro Hall, 55 John Street at 6:00pm with guest panelists Nadia Theodore, Consul General of Canada to the Southeastern United States, Ron Busby, President/CEO of the U.S Black Chambers and Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business and Export Promotion. “I always say that we must ‘see it to be it’ and so the importance of an ecosystem and network that will encourage and support the proliferation and success of Black-owned and Black-led businesses cannot be overstated,” says Ng.

The focus of the evening’s discussion will include:

· Breaking Down Barriers To Growth

· Supporting Black Entrepreneurship

· Investing In Black-owned Businesses

· Access to Capital & Funders

· U.S & Global Trade

The Canadian Black Chamber of Commerce is committed to aiding in the growth, development and success of Black businesses across the country. “The goal of the Chamber is to be the national voice of Black Canadian businesses and entrepreneurs,” explains founder Michael Forrest, president of Forrest Management Group. “We are dedicated to building a prosperous Black Canadian community.”

More than 150 guests and dignitaries will attend the inaugural CBCC celebration – among the invited guests: Black Business Professional Association (BBPA), Afro Caribbean Business Network (ACBN), ByBlacks.com, The Jamaican-Canadian Association and Caribbean African Canadian Social Services.

“I’m excited about the opportunities that the Canadian Black Chamber of Commerce can provide to Canadian businesses, especially as they seek to grow in the U.S. market and globally,” said Consul General Nadia Theodore. Adds U.S Black Chambers President Ron Busby, “Without a doubt, it will serve as a key resource to Black Canadian entrepreneurs.”

A 2015 survey by the BBPA Council Advisory Body of the City of Toronto found that Black businesses who participated were predominantly self-employed (48%) and 32% of them employed two to five individuals. Only 1 % employed at least 101 employees. With a population of approximately 200, 000 in the GTA who identify as Black, there is a need for an organization like the Canadian Black Chamber of Commerce to assist in growth, development and networking – not only in Toronto – but across the country. Affiliate CBCC chapters will be launching in other provinces in the coming weeks.

Michael Forrest – Founder – Canadian Black Chamber Of Commerce

Recently, Michael Forrest, founder of the Canadian Black Chamber of Commerce, was on our show.

Over 4000 English and French spelling bee participants in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia will be competing for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place titles in three age divisions: Primary (ages 6-8), Junior (ages 9-11), and Intermediate (ages 12-14). Each first place Regional winner advances to the Canadian Championships, to be held in Richmond Hill, ON, on Sunday, May 5, 2019.

“With such strong participation again this year, the message is clear – spelling bees are good for our kids, youth and our communities,” says Dr. Nagina Parmar, President of Spelling Bee of Canada (SBOC). “With the support of parents, Chapter Presidents and volunteers, we’re encouraging young people to expand their vocabulary, communication skills and self-confidence by providing a foundation for future scholastic achievements through our theme of ‘Education + Perseverance = Success’.”

Incorporating technology to better meet the changing needs of participants and their families, is one of SBOC’s modernizations. Over the past months, bee participants have been preparing for the challenging words they will encounter by using SBOC’s web-based coaching app to practice anytime, anywhere, on any web-enabled device. This is just one of the many advancements the new board members are advocating.

“We’re thrilled to have passionate new board members join us this year. Coming from spelling bee backgrounds, they’re adding new perspectives, sharing their expertise and are dedicated to helping us reach our goals,” says Julie Spence, SBOC’s CEO and Founder. “As a registered charity, we depend on like-minded businesses, organizations and individuals to contribute time, materials, service and/or funds to make our spelling bees and educational programs possible.”

In its 32nd year, SBOC has welcomed over 50,000 children as spelling bee participants. SBOC, a not-for-profit grassroots organization, was established in the greater Toronto area in 1987 and led to the development of an Ontario Spelling Bee. Since then, SBOC has been promoting children and youth literacy with the mission to enrich the children and youth learning experience and engage schools and the community at large in an annual education process.

Long-term, SBOC plans on establishing chapters in each province and territory in order to create a National Spelling Bee, providing access to English and French language learning through their proprietary online platforms and ultimately engaging approximately one million participants across Canada.

Recently, Dorine Joelle from Spelling Bee Of Canada was live on our show.

During our conversation, Ms. Joelle talked about:

– Epoi Moi Of Canada (French version of The Spelling Bee Of Canada)
– some background on The Spelling Bee Of Canada and Epoi Moi Of Canada
– How did her and Julie Spence (the founder of Spelling Bee of Canada) met

A fitting grand finale for Black History Month, the first Black Canadian-made film of 2019 launches into general theatrical release on Thursday, February 28, 2019. Black Canadian filmmaker Frances-Anne Solomon’s internationally acclaimed feature film, HERO, makes its Canadian theatrical premiere at TIFF Bell Lightbox, located at 350 King St. W., Toronto, ON. In celebration of HERO’s achievement, Ghanian superstar Adjetey Anang, and British rising star Eric Kofi Abrefa (Snowden, The Harlots) are confirmed to attend along with Peter Williams (Canada) and Nickolai Salcedo (Trinidad and Tobago).

“Frances-Anne Solomon has done so much to bring crucial stories from the African Diaspora to screen,” said Cameron Bailey, TIFF’s Artistic Director and Co-Head. “Her portrayal of the Ulric Cross story illuminates an important chapter in Caribbean history. We’re honoured to present HERO at TIFF Bell Lightbox, in collaboration with CTFF.”

Filmed in Trinidad, Ghana, the UK and Canada, HERO is the story of Ulric Cross, who in 1941, left his small island to seek his fortune, and became the Royal Air Force’s most decorated West Indian. Then his life took a dramatically different course when he followed the call of history. He joined the independence movements sweeping the world in the 50s and 60s.

Toronto’s Canadian premiere launches screenings across Canada and a cinematic world tour that includes Africa, the Caribbean, and Europe.

HERO features an all-star cast of top international Black actors in powerful roles. Joseph Marcell (Fresh Prince of Belair) plays Trinidadian author CLR James, alongside Fraser James’ (Terminator) as Trinidadian revolutionary George Padmore, while British-Nigerian actor Jimmy Akingbola plays Ghana’s first president Kwame Nkrumah, and Adjetey Anang (Adam’s Apple, Potomanto) plays Congo’s ill-fated first Prime Minister, Patrice Lumumba.

Canada’s Peter Williams (Stargate SG1), and Trinidad and Tobago’s Nickolai Salcedo co-lead the extraordinary cast, along with Eric Kofi Abrefa (The Informer), Pippa Nixon (John Carter, Unforgotten), and Valerie Buhagiar (Bad Blood, Murdoch Mysteries).

Several members of the international cast will be attending the premiere and will participate in the post-film Talk Back session. The official after-party location will soon be announced.

HERO captures a transformative moment in Black global history. Securing a general release for the film presents a significant opportunity for us to share our story with a broad and diverse audience. The film is important especially for young Black people to understand on whose broad shoulders we stand, to learn who led big lives and who were heroes,” says Frances-Anne Solomon, director and producer of HERO. “Launching at the prestigious TIFF Bell Lightbox theatre acknowledges the impact of this film on the Canadian theatre ecology and its capacity for exposure beyond the Caribbean and Africa.”

Frances-Anne Solomon

Recently, Frances-Anne Solomon, director and producer of HERO was on our show.

During our conversation, Ms. Solomon talked about:

– A little of her background and Caribbean Tales, CineFam
– The background and story behind Hero and the selection of the cast
– What message would she like the audience to get from the movie

It’s the little program that grew, the roots of The Transitional Year Programme (TYP) at the University of Toronto began in the Black community through two summer programs in 1969 and 1970, and since then, hundreds of graduates have gone onto successful careers. “It’s a place where the students learn to use their voice, develop empathy and unlock their imaginations in order to dream something bigger for themselves,” says TYP Registrar Lauriann Wade, “TYP makes excellence accessible.”

TYP is a full-time, eight month access-to-University program and gives those who do not have the formal qualifications – like a high school diploma – intense hands on preparation for entry into post-secondary education. Applicants come from the targeted Indigenous, African-Canadian and LGBTQ communities where finances, family issues or other circumstances beyond their control hindered their schooling. However, the Ontario Progressive Conservative government’s recent move to eliminate free tuition for low-income students will make access to higher education difficult once again for applicants to TYP.

“The majority of TYP students are from lower income backgrounds with a family income below $50, 000,” explains Lance McCready, Director of TYP. “Having a larger percentage of funding coming from loans will undoubtedly create more debt for our students who have fewer financial resources…it can serve as a deterrent for those from lower income backgrounds trying to access post-secondary education.”

In spite of hurdles like this latest one, TYP has a proven track record of success:

Rocco Achampong – born in Ghana, Rocco came to Canada in 1988 with his parents and four siblings. He entered TYP in 1999 and went on to study history and political science at U of T’s Trinity College. He is now a lawyer who has run for Toronto mayor and city council. Rocco led the legal challenge against Premier Doug Ford’s cutting down of the city’s wards.

Jandell Nicholas – She went from staffing co-ordinator at an employment agency to earning her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts, Geography and Planning. Jandell now works as a teaching assistant in the university’s department of Geography and Planning and is a published author.

Rahel Woldegiorgis – Once given the opportunity, Rahel embraced education. After finishing TYP, she got her Honours BA from the University of Toronto during which time she did two international exchanges – one at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the other at the University of Nairobi. She completed her Masters of Arts (Social Justice and Community Engagement) at Wilfrid Laurier University and is now the Residential Supervisor at Eva’s, a shelter for homeless youth.

Recently, Lauriann Wade, TYP Registrar and graduate of TYP, was on our show talking about the TYP.

During our conversation, Ms. Wade talked about:

– Some of her background and how she got involved in the Transisitonal Year Programme (TYP) including what was preventing her from going to university, how she found out about TYP, the history of the program, her first day in the programme and her graduation day, the programme itself including the application process
– Why do some students drop out of the programme
– What does her role comprise of
– How have students changed over the years
– The drop in the number of Black and Indigenous students applying for the programme
– How has the programme changed since she was in the programme
– How people find out about TYP
