Captivating, humourous, inspirational.... just a few words to describe the keynote of Greg Johnson, Storm Chaser. His message appeals to people young and old, in all walks of life. Truly an amazing, personable gentleman.

Probably one of the most “real” motivational speakers I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to… felt inspired by his “gimmick-free” message - it wasn’t a “to do list” of self improvement but a great reminder to focus on what is important as both a teacher, a parent, a member of a community. I would love to have him present to our students as well! Learned a lot from him in the photography session as well! Interesting, funny, captivating speaker!
Kim Froese
Greg Johnson recently spoke to 300 members of the insurance industry and the audience was “blown away” by his presentation. He is an entertaining storyteller, down to earth and very witty and keeps the audience fully engaged from start to finish. His fantastic storm photos and videos captured our emotions and imaginations. Greg was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend him as a key note speaker.
