Having worked his entire career as an electronics engineering technologist, he has progressed with many companies from manufacturing, aerospace, and design to the cable infrastructure environment. He currently works as a data analyst for Shaw Communications Calgary.
While being a member of Toastmasters International for 20+ years, Terry has served in many progressive roles of speaking and leadership development, from club to district level, peaking in 2018 as the Public Relations Manager for District 42 of Alberta and Saskatchewan. Wanting to give back and help others with their speaking and leadership development, be began his self-help podcast TDKtalks.com in 2011.
Discovering the power of video, Terry took his speaking, leadership and production talent further to create Video-Connects.com. His first major work was as a volunteer videographer with the children’s charity No Ordinary Journey Foundation. In March of 2014, on their team with 10 others, he travelled across Vietnam on a 3-week mission, capturing their mission project in video, where they trained parents and caregivers of young children with cerebral palsy (CP). He returned to Vietnam with the charity in August 2015, on another 3 week mission, to produce a 30 min documentary – Untold Story, Return to Tra Vinh - which aired on Shaw TV Calgary in Nov 2016. His video productions and stories can be viewed at his Video-Connects Youtube channel.
With his growing interest in volunteerism, philanthropy and what drives the many local philanthropists and volunteers he met, he began a series in 2019 where he just “asks them” in his interview series “Out-of-Country”.
Terry is honored to be on the board of Humanity’s Promise Int’l to work with like-minded members and bring his philanthropic skills and ideas to help the people in South Sudan Africa develop their sustainable lifestyle.
