Thank you Joanne for hosting the Living is Giving Summit!! As my first ever giving-focused event I really had no idea what to expect - but I was thoroughly impressed with every aspect of it. I found each of the speakers interesting, engaging and compelling in their willingness to share their own unique perspective on abundance, positivity and of course, on giving. I’m relatively new to the charitable space and took both comfort and inspiration from the event and am now working on giving more than ever in all aspects of my life. Looking forward to the next event!! - LM

Joanne Chrobot

Joanne is a woman committed to helping others discover their own potential for creating a compelling life. Joanne Chrobot is inspired to be inspiring, to everyone around her. The combination of a dynamic, uplifting individual and a caring, creative vision makes for a unique and impressive life passion.

Joanne has amassed hands-on experience in the events industry since 1992 when she worked, and still works with international, Coach, Strategist and Speaker Tony Robbins and his team, and many other well-known inspirational speakers such as Mark Victor Hansen, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Dr. John Gray, Marianne Williamson, Les Brown, Ross Quinn, etc. Traveling extensively across North America, from Toronto to Hawaii, to be a part of these events, Joanne realized the impact that the presenters were having on her own life. This new awareness ignited a passion. She wanted others to be touched by these life-transforming presenters as she had been and still is to this day.


So impressed by the information these speakers imparted, Joanne made a decision to make their intriguing messages, as well as her own, available to a wider audience. Through focused intention, tireless pursuit for what she believed in, and having the courage to follow her dreams, KnowledgeWorks Global was launched.

We all seek something more from our lives. It may be improved health, better relationships, success in business or increased spirituality. I have made a commitment to help individuals find more of what they seek to create a deeper, fulfilled life through informed choices“.

Joanne was so touched by Tony Robbins’ story of a stranger that delivered food to his home when he was 11 years old, and when Tony made enough money he was able to deliver to 2 families.

Joanne thought “we should do that here”. So the idea of Basket Brigade Canada was created. Joanne started delivering to families in 1993 and has been consistently delivering food to needy families ever since. Basket Brigade Canada became an official Canadian registered charity across the country in 2018.

Thousands have received one week’s worth of groceries since 1993, due to the tireless efforts of Joanne and her dedicated Volunteer Team.

Joanne promises to create a place where one can spend a day learning, connecting and taking steps towards empowering one’s life through new, informed choices and has created a powerful place for all attending to learn, network and take action!

Joanne enjoys connecting with nature, learning new strategies in personal development, refining her intuitive skills and spirituality, and spending quality time with friends, her children and her grandson.

Jacek Siwek

Jacek Siwek is a keynote speaker, coach, author, and entrepreneur. Jacek was born on 5th of July 1979 in Poland. He grew up under Communism to witness it’s collapse in 1989 and immigrated to Canada in 1996.

An immigrant’s life is very difficult. New culture, new language, new friends and even a new family meant new life. He started with nothing, relying on family, friends and lots of hard work in order to survive. After 10 years of struggle he understood that the process of going from poverty into success is very similar to the process of immigrating from one country to another.  The key to it can be expressed all in one word: IMMERSION!

Successful people spoke differently, had different culture, different lifestyle because they had a different type of peer group.

Therefore, he devoted the next decade to transform his life from being broke into a life of success. Today he’s a proud father and husband but also an owner of multiple businesses and real-estate properties. He also has a passion for teaching and coaching others to success. Immigrating to success is not just a metaphor, it’s an idea of making a life changing decision that will not be easy but it will be worth every effort.
