Vanessa Lesperance



Vanessa is a facilitator and founder of Vancity Labyrinth who works with heart-centred organizations and leaders by offering team-well being workshops for mind, body, emotion and spirit.

 Ryan Spencer

VP.  Education


Ryan Spencer is a teacher, writer, and aspiring public speaker. When not trying to organize, systematize, adapt or invent something for the club, he moonlights as one of VETC's VP(s) of Education. Ryan is currently on a quest to have coffee with every member of the club and although this might be a thinly disguised cover for indulging in his caffeine addiction, the truth is he enjoys nothing more than getting to meet people where they are at and to find out more about he can help them on their journey as Toastmasters.
