Ross speaks like he writes: anecdotally, entertainingly and with humour.

Since he began keeping records in 1971, Ross Brewitt has logged over 800 professional speaking dates in Canada and the U.S., from sports celebrity events, to business and convention forums, and everything in between.

Completely at home behind the microphone he speaks like he writes: anecdotally, entertaining, humourous, and motivational, delivering a message tailored to the group, bringing his long association with hockey at several levels to the forefront.

“… one of the wittiest after-dinner speakers I have ever heard, with those great lines taken from experience in the ‘trenches’ of the sports world.” Bruce Hood, former NHL referee.

Ross draws on first-hand observations from a career dealing with the big names in the game. Also an advocate for mixing hockey and education, he often uses the line he coined in a column, “show me the school,” and enjoys bringing the message to young players at every opportunity.

“… anecdote after side-splitting anecdote… it’s no understatement to say that Ross is one of the wittiest, most amusing speakers, we have had… one we should be prepared to invite to return. The warmth and duration of the applause when he finished testified to it.” Guelph Rotary Club

“… his engaging talk had nothing to do with our business, but what a wonderful change. We gave him the highest rating as a speaker, our undivided attention, and a room full of laughter.” Kingston Builders Association

“A half hour of interesting and humourous change-of-pace is exactly what our people needed after three days of business facts and figures. An outstanding choice by the organizers.”  Canada Life Marketing Seminar

“…  your humourous, candid, informative look into the world of hockey was easily transferable to the world of business, a fact put home to our sales force and made it easy and enjoyable to appreciate their role in overall marketing.  Western New York Automart Association.
