PDO Symposium Feature Speaker: Dr. Brian Goldman

Banquet Speaker: Dr. Brian Goldman

Dr. Brian Goldman is one of those rare individuals with great success, in not one, but several adrenaline-pumping careers.

He is a highly regarded emergency physician at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto. He is also the host of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s award-winning radio show “White Coat, Black Art”, where he takes listeners behind the scenes of hospitals and doctor’s offices.

In his new ‘Power of Kindness‘ keynote presentation, Dr. Goldman takes audiences out the hospital room and into the world at large, investigating why kindness is so vital to our existence. A power and engaging speaker, Dr. Goldman shares personal anecdotes from his quest to gain a deeper understanding of his own sense of empathy. Audiences will hear some captivating and moving stories from around the world highlighting the secrets to success used by some of the most empathic people alive, including those in the foodservice industry, healthcare, robotics, non-profits and more.
