Join us for an evening of spoken word with Toronto based poet and public speaker, Wali Shah.

Wali has reached audiences across the country. From hundreds of schools, TEDx Talks, and collaborations with national orga­nizations such as The CFL and Canada’s Walk of Fame, Wali has became an icon for social advocacy and custom curated content.

His performance with Microsoft reached 16,000 people at the Air Canada Center and since then, Wali’s per­sonality, style, and captiv­ating delivery, have inspired companies across North America.

Wali recently completed his post-secondary education, graduating from the University of Toronto. He is an ambassador for the Bell ‘Let’s Talk’ campaign, and has helped in raising over one million dollars for Un­ited Way.

From boardrooms to classrooms, Wali uses his art of story telling to empower audiences and inspi­res them to empower others. He’s even freestyled with hip hop artist, Kendrick Lamar.
