The Value Crisis

“A dynamic, engaging and
high-energy presentation.”


- Seniors College Association of Nova Scotia


“I just wanted to say how much
I enjoyed Mr. Welch's topic.
It sure makes one think
of alternatives to math.
The high point was his ability
to give examples so we, at our
level could understand a point.”


- Bob A., Transition Bay St. Margarets
