On June 1, 2014 INSPIRE held its 4th annual June Speaker Series featuring some of the most recognizable Canadian names in media, business, and music.

"Our mantra today is feeding and fuelling our souls and minds," said Kreviazuk in her opening address. "We are going to experience something incredible, different, and inspiring. We are going to grow today."
The hundreds of students who filed into the Montecassino Hotel and Banquet Hall early on a Sunday morning to do just that were treated to inspiring stories and valuable life lessons from: a five-time nominee and two-time Juno Award winner (Chantal Kreviazuk); a seven-time Emmy award winning journalist (Frank Ferragine); a bestselling author, award winning broadcaster and a Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal recipient (Mary Garofalo); and a a Top 40 Under 40 Entrepreneur (Alex Rechichi).
"With the addition of Chantal Kreviazuk, who we were honoured to have join us, the 2014 line-up was one of INSPIRE's most decorated yet," said Luciano Volpe, Chair, INSPIRE. "Our INSPIRE team has grown significantly over the past four years along with the generous support of our sponsors and our events, along with our scholarships and bursary programs, continue to connect the next generation with the motivation they need to follow their dreams."
