Hosting an Access52 event means you are

Giving hope and encouragement to your school community.

Who we are

We’re on a mission to inspire the world, one student at a time.

Access52 is a Canadian charity working to bridge the gap between students, parents, and teachers. We believe that if we could motivate, challenge, and inspire people and help them see the significance of who they are, we would see a positive change among families and in our communities.

We do this through our speaking events, offered live on-location or virtually through livestream.

What we do

How can we help your school community?

For the past ten years, we’ve hosted events at locations all across Canada and the US.

Student Events

Our goal is to create an opportunity for reflection, motivation, and purpose. We guide students through a process that allows them to reflect on themes such as relationships, mental health, life direction, and intention. These high-energy and interactive events close with a clear call to action: to make an “ALL IN” decision to live out your unique mission.

Sr. High, Jr. High, and Elementary schools • Half- or full-day events • School assemblies, student wellness seminars, retreats, etc.

Parent Events

When booking a school event, Access52 will offer a complimentary parent night where Michael shares the “Top 7 Things Students Wish Their Parents Knew“, which features real letters from real teens. Parent events build on student events, making a greater impact for the community by sharing what students are thinking and what they are going through.

Evening sessions • Seminars • Conferences • Entire community or city-wide

Teacher Events

Our teacher events are designed to inspire, energize, and encourage teachers to return to their original call — why this vocation was worthy of my response. Our experience has. given us the opportunity to keynote full district/board gatherings, admin and trustee retreats, as well as individual school staff development sessions.

Keynote speaking • District gatherings • Teacher conferences • PD sessions • School teachers and admin • Team building

All our events can be delivered in the following formats: Live in-person* • Virtual (live-streamed in real time from our office studios) • Pre-recorded video

*Pending public gathering restrictions. Available for international bookings, travel extra.

Don't take our word for it.

Here’s what students, parents, and teachers are saying:

"I came to the retreat today with my head down, but I left with it up and with hope. Listening to your speech and your life made me feel like you knew what I was going through. It made me feel like there was still hope and good things to look forward to in my life. It made me never want to drugs again."


"Your stories and humour that you incorporated into your talks were wonderful. It helped me relate. I pledge to you and the entire world that I will try my best to be myself. I will no longer be afraid of judgment."


"I had no idea what to expect. As a parent, I need help and everything that was talked about helped me more than you will ever know."

"Michael has impacted us immensely. He is a very powerful speaker. He has brought people to tears as well as filled them with joy. He delivers a message that people are waiting for and they don't even realize it."


"Thank you for reminding me to take a breath, look around me, and say THANK YOU. To take the time and see my students for who they are. Thank you for reminding me how hard my life was in Grade 11 and I can't keep assuming all these kids have it together. And thank you for showing me how to be there for them when they need it."
