I describe Cameron Brown as the “warm up band” for David Suzuki’s presentation at the Performing Arts Centre last night.

Cameron Brown – intense and direct, motivates a Burlington audience.

Brown is an intense young Australian who was touring Canada and was available. Burlington Green added him to the program – the audience got a no holds barred talk from a deeply committed environmentalist.

Cameron Brown is a motivational story teller who plays the piano and makes really bold statements.

“You have to run everything you do through three filters” advises Brown: “What does what I am doing do for me; what does it do for others and what does it do for the plant.”

Brown will tell you that “ it is really that simple”.

While Brown is part of the program that features Dr. David Suzuki, he has never met the man and had yet to have a conversation with him. They certainly share the same environmental committement.
Brown talks about human behaviour and emotional intelligence and the need for society to make intelligent decisions.

Brown’s passion is to get people to “experience” the environment.

While Brown isn’t into owning “stuff” he does love his drone. He uses it to “experience” the environment and as a teaching tool when he is in parts of the world where electricity is limited and the drinking water is nowhere near what we take for granted in Canada.

The kids I work with are cool about saving the planet; it is one of the ways the find themselves – the are “fricken awesome”

Making an event happen takes a team of people – those that made the Connect the Dots sessions work line up for their photo op.

Brown created a corporation – The Thriving Collective – that is committed to making a positive impact in the world, and was built for those dedicated to using their own unique talents and strengths to do the same.

“I believe” said Brown “that every person has the potential to use what they’ve been given in this life, to create positive change and succeed in a way that only they can.

“When someone is thriving in their lives both personally and professionally, they’re in flow, they’re doing their best work, they are happier, more connected, higher performing and highly productive.”

It would be hard to find better or more fitting words to close the evening event at the Performing Arts Centre where Brown played music with the theme “There’s Still Time”.

We certainly hope so.
