Bilingual breakfast talk on Nelson Mandela
2144, East Acres Rd
Talk presented by Adler Aristilde on the theme of "The legacy of Nelson Mandela: 10 key lessons of a life of personal achievement and refinement". Mr. Aristilde considers himself primarily an admirer of Mandela who would like to see the vision and legacy of the South-African icon out-live his recent passing on December 5, 2013. For the speaker, Mandela’s spiritual belief had much to do with the way the leader conducted his life. Equally important, he believes that each one of us, not just the politicians, should endeavour to carry the fundamental message of Mandela in our respective life undertakings. Adler Aristilde has been a member of CEFO for six years. He holds a Master’s degree in public policy and public administration from Concordia University. He also completed a Bachelor’s Degree in political science and journalism at New York
University and Concordia. His work experience includes journalism and strategic policy. The speaker is fluent in French, English, and Creole.

Terry was blessed to be coming up at a time when the owners of the music where still alive and he had an opportunity to learn directly from them. A very significant part of Terry's success is due to those lessons and his responsibility is to help keep the discussion significant in a fun way on a dance floor.

Terry will open each evening with a set of his music then the guest will follow with a set of their music. Each will accompany the other. Don’t miss a single one.
