Barnaby Howarth - Life's for Living, Go Play in the Puddles!

Barnaby Howarth is a former AFL footballer for the Sydney Swans, and now resilience speaker. A diabetic, Barnaby was bashed and had a stroke in 2005, and then lost the most beautiful person in his world, his wife Angela, to cancer last year. Barnaby is on an international speaking tour, A Real Bloke Telling a Real Story, where he will be sharing his story about playing in the puddles when the rain keeps falling around you

Barnaby is taking his story of finding real human resilience to real people in communities around the world - he'll be holding talks in local community venues in front of audiences from every walk of life. He'll be telling them about how simply being a good, solid human being is enough to get you ahead in life,

Thanks to the Calgary Kookaburras AFC team, Barnaby will be coming to Canada in March 2018 and will be joining the side at a Come and Try Aussie Rules night at Repsol Sport Centre (2225 Macleod Trail SE - gyms 4 and 5) from 8.15pm-9.15pm, then he'll deliver his speech at Joyce on 4th at 9.30pm.

Community groups like the Calgary Kookaburras survive by having people roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty by helping out wherever they can, so come down and have a kick, pack up some equipment, or sweep a floor, then come over to Joyce on 4fh to hear Barnaby's inspiring human story.
