In winning the award, Maxwell becomes the first Atlantic Canadian author/speaker to be honored in such a way by this organization.
In making the announcement, TEC Canada Vice-President Karen Chown indicated that Maxwell and his "American Speaker of the Year" counterpart Jim Alampi of Michigan were chosen based on the value each brings to the TEC membership experience. As Chown explains, "Gair and Jim were selected based not only on high presentation scores from our members, but also on their contributions to the TEC community, their ability to exceed performance benchmarks and their demonstration of commitment to TEC Canada. Both Gair and Jim are great ambassadors to our mission in helping accelerate the growth and global development of Canadian business leaders through professional development and executive mentoring".
