Erica Harris is a most remarkable and inspiring speaker. We felt very lucky to  have her speak for us at Canadian Blood Services. She has done so on repeated occasions and further, she has served as our keynote speaker at our national event held at the Canadian Museum of History. Her powerful story is delivered with great passion to inspire others and to make a difference.  I am very honoured to work with and to meet such an outstanding woman and mother.

Erica Harris has a tremendous and inspiring story that cuts to the heart of our humanity. We were fortunate to have her as a speaker at our Canadian Critical Care Conference a few years back.  Her moving story of overcoming significant and personal adversity in the setting of overwhelming odds had a great impact upon the audience of healthcare professionals. She presents herself in a personal, humble yet straightforward manner. In the end it’s not the adversity that defines us as a people but on how we meet the challenges that come our way and how we communicate and connect with others and from that perspective I have been privileged to see Erica present her story.
