We're going to transition here. We're doing a little bit of innovation this time. We've decided to bring in some music as part of the conference today. We have two very accomplished musicians. Let me first, introduce Steven Page, who's going to be our first musician? And he is an accomplished singer-songwriter. He's a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame performs regularly. So welcome, Steven. How you doing today? Where are you today? I am in my basement just
outside of Syracuse. New York to Syracuse, New York. Fantastic. So, if covid hadn't happened, what would you be doing this time of year? Well, I've been gearing up for a summer tour. I look at my calendar. Exactly, two weeks from today. I was supposed to start Tour of the east coast of the United States. That's obviously gone away. As has my August during plans and basically everything into next year. Wow. Do you currently use platforms? I've been relying on platforms, a lot in, especially in, in pandemic time.
I've been doing weekly shows over resume using a couple different platforms side door and that ticket, Taylor's other one. I've used just to sell tickets to my audience and then I get up to a thousand people every week. Doing, I love doing them over Zoom because I actually get to see the audience and they get to see each other. And and it really becomes this kind of great sense of community, which it has certainly saved my life and my kind of day today career stuff over the course of this. But I think it's really created a really nice sense of connection for people over the
course of it. And then on top of that I've started a patreon for as a place for people to come and either get free tickets for their shows or Download previous performances, that kind of thing. And you not only perform. Do you also give talks? I understand I've done and I do a lot of talks either on kind of my life in the Arts of autobiographical speech. Or I do more, commonly mental health talks. And I've been doing those even during this time, both those and performances for for corporate and
charity clients. And so on using a whole array of video conferencing, fantastic still with that. Welcome again, and take it away. All right, here we go.
