Keynote Luncheon with Rex Murphy
Social Commentator, Editorialist & Distinct Canadian Voice
Canadians are treated to Rex’s Saturday column in the National Post and previously enjoyed his weekly commentary on CBC’s The National. The one and only Rex Murphy is a trusted face and voice across Canadian media. His intellect and biting humour strike through the heart of profound political and social issues.
As a keynote speaker, Rex radiates intelligence and trustworthiness. He’s been described as “inimitable.” His endearing style brings forth a sarcastic intellect and deep insight into issues affecting individuals and businesses.
Audiences, whether domestic or international, can expect to be simultaneously informed and entertained by Rex’s provocative commentary. He knows what makes Canadians tick, and what drives our political and social affairs. Rex makes us important and reminds us we have culture beyond hockey. His thought-provoking, sometimes stinging commentary and original insights are delivered through a vocabulary to make Webster’s consider updating.
A Rhodes Scholar, Rex was born and raised in St. John’s, Nfld., where he graduated from Memorial University. He went to Oxford University, along with former U.S. President Bill Clinton. Rex later ran twice in provincial elections and lost both times. Maybe he was too honest?
