Into The Arctic
Drawing from his extensive creative expeditions into some of Canada’s most remote and spectacular Polar landscapes, artist/filmmaker Cory Trepanier brings the audience on an awe-inspiring northern journey. Lavishly illustrated with film clips, photos and stories. Cory’s passion for these fragile landscapes, and the incredible lengths he goes to in order to preserve them on canvas and film, will move your audience with our planet’s wonders and motivate them in the pursuit of their own aspirations.
Finding THE Big Picture
Cory reaches beyond his canvases, some which are very large, and shares his strategies for finding the bigger picture: in his case a unique and fulfilling career that combines his passions of landscape painting, film making, adventure and family.
Carving out such an original life has been no easy task, requiring Cory to wear numerous hats along the way to face a multitude of challenges.
Everyone’s big picture is unique, and for some it lies in hiding. Cory delves into passion, motivation, self-imposed limits, harnessing the support of others, accountability, leadership, inspiration, the pursuit of excellence and persistence, all key elements of finding and fulfilling goals, whether in corporate or independent environments.
Embedded with stunning film clips and photos throughout, audiences will feel the awe-inspiring beauty of Canada’s wildest places… thus fulfilling another part of Cory’s own Big Picture.
"The Hamilton Association asked Cory Trepanier to deliver the Dr. John Rae Memorial Lecture this year to celebrate Hamilton's 'own' Arctic explorer and his love of the North. Cory provided a memorable evening for our discerning audience. He is not only a fine artist and film maker who undertook a fascinating but daunting adventure, he is also an engaging, professional-calibre speaker. The beauty of his images, the wondrous landscape, and his northern narrative, which lightened drama with self-deprecating humour, had our audience captivated. If it had been a theatre and not a lecture hall, he would certainly have been called back for encores.”
"Cory is not only a compelling speaker, he holds the audience with a tight grip as they cling to every word. Cheers were heard across the hall following his presentation.”
“Cory was the keynote speaker at our International media event in Whitehorse in 2012 to a room of international travel writers and bloggers. Talk about a tough audience! Engaging travel writers and bloggers who have travelled the world covering the most exotic, interesting and off the beaten track destinations and experiences can be a daunting task. Cory had them captivated. His combination of stories where art meets the wilderness in Canada’s great north were authentic and engaging and left the audience clamouring for more.”
