How One Teacher Changed My Life in 10 Minutes

Goodbye Stress.
Hello Life!

Having a room of high school students sit still is like herding cats. Kehler accomplished the impossible. As his descriptions became more vivid and his subject matter became more personal the full room gradually became more sombre. Kehler positioned himself not as an authority or lecturer, but humbly. Unlike so many other speakers, his intention was not to scare the students straight, but rather to teach them that help can be found.

As president of the local teachers’ association, I have received dozens of positive comments about Allan, with many noting that it was the most empowering PD session they ever attended. Allan’s message was powerful, and was met with an enthusiastic standing ovation. His sessions were engaging, encouraging, and informative. I would recommend Allan as a speaker for any teachers’ convention as his message was important, practical and motivating.

James Siemens

President, Sun West Teacher’s Association
Allan Kehler is an energetic, captivating and dynamic speaker. He shares his stories in a way that tugs at the heart-strings while motivating you to make positive change. Every individual at the Canada’s Safest Employers gala were hanging on to his every word. He truly has a wonderful gift.

Our community experienced several traumatic events which created an atmosphere of uncertainty and worry. Allan provided more than just words of wisdom, but also practical advice to parents. Allan’s presentation allowed our students and parents to open the doors of communication and gain the strength to deal with the topics many of us try to avoid.

Allan presented many great tools for dealing with stress that we can work into our daily lives and see positive results. To my surprise he was able to successfully convince a very reluctant group to participate in the game ‘Pie Face’. Judging by the amount of laughter in the room they clearly had fun doing it! Allan was compassionate, informative and entertaining. We’d invite him back in a heartbeat!

Allan uses his education and life experiences to engage a wide spectrum of audiences on the topics of mental health and stress management. He adds humour, facts and tools which make his sessions not only highly useful, but also highly entertaining. The audience is left reflecting on the impact of these topics in their own life and the lives of those around them.

Manager, Safety & Training, Thunder Bay Hydro
Allan has facilitated numerous presentations at our annual conferences, and has delivered two-day training events for our wellness professionals. Working with Allan is always smooth and his professionalism makes it easy to re-hire him again and again. His direct experience as an educator makes him uniquely qualified to deliver information in an efficient and relatable manner.

Allan’s presentation at the Western Conference on Safety was not only informative but also engaging and entertaining. Allan took the subject of addiction in the workplace beyond the typical impairment recognition and humanized the issue while offering simple techniques that could be used by anyone in the workplace. Learning about this subject from Allan’s perspective was extremely valuable.
