Mindset Matters – Where Shared Experiences Connect People

Encompas Mental Health Wellness Program

May 16th, 2023 – 1000 – 1130 ET

Featuring Skidrow CEO Joe Roberts and Retired OPP Constable Scott MacLeod – The Distress Call That Changed Their Lives

Hosted by Dalton Associates CEO Carl Dalton



This free webinar offers a unique opportunity to meet Joe Roberts (also known as The Skidrow CEO) and Retired OPP Constable Scott MacLeod. In 1991, Scott responded to a distress call when Joe was threatening suicide. Scott’s initial thought was that this person was “just another addict going to jail,” but this interaction ignited a transformational journey for Joe, moving him from living on the streets of Vancouver as a homeless skid row addict to becoming a highly respected business and community leader. He remains in touch with Scott MacLeod after all these years.
During this webinar, we will explore this story from both perspectives to understand what was unique about this interaction that resulted in such a positive turnaround. We will discuss whether there are lessons that can be learned and applied from this experience, or whether it was a once-in-a-million occurrence.
