As the Head Coach of the Canadian Women’s Soccer Team, John Herdman took a group once called a “struggling squad” to one that has captured the hearts and minds of Canadians.
Under his leadership, the team won the bronze medals at both the 2012 and 2016 Summer Olympic Games, and also took a gold medal at the 2011 Pan Am Games in Mexico – the first Pan Am gold in Canadian soccer history.

In his riveting talks, Herdman – who was a nominee for both the 2012 and 2015 FIFA Coach of the Year – stresses the importance of developing a high performance culture, learning to overcome adversity with grace, and the role of leaders to inspire trust, confidence and success, whether it's on the field, in the workplace or in the home.

The Kings and Queens Scholarship Breakfast creates a way for student athletes to pursue their dreams of sports and education. Since its inception, this event has raised more than $280,000 for athletic scholarships.
