IGNITE Real Talks

Inspiration, dedication, and motivation: that’s what this year’s two Real Talks speakers will awaken in you.


Drex Jancar and Brryan Jackson are two men of vastly different backgrounds and unique stories, but one thing in common; they both managed to defy all odds stacked against them and achieve some amazing things.

Join us at our IGNITE Real Talks at the North campus Student Centre on Wednesday, October 19th from 1-3 PM for an afternoon of learning and inspiration you will never forget. Hear the stories of two unbelievable individuals. Each speaker’s speech will be followed by a Q & A.

Event will be livestreamed at Lakeshore in the K Building Student Centre.

IGNITE Real Talks is free to attend. All Humber and Guelph-Humber students are welcome.



Drex Jancar: Manager of OVO Clothing, OVO Fest, and manager of artist Majid Jordan

Growing up in a blue collar community in the west end of Toronto, Drex learned very early in life the value of hard work. It was this same community that also taught him how to take limited resources and flip them in order to realize a larger vision. To make something out of nothing.

A confident leader who can be counted on to make tough decisions, Jancar’s vision and the ability to see things into fruition has dubbed him the playful nickname of “Mr. Get It Done”. Drex has found his niche in helping produce and translate developing ideas and talents into full blown successes.

Brryan Jackson: Speaker and Mental Health Activist

Brryan Jackson’s story began when he was just 11 months old, when his father, a medical industry professional, knowingly injected him with HIV-tainted blood. Five years later, Brryan was diagnosed with AIDS. Since then Brryan has been defying the odds and lives on representing a story of courage, perseverance and forgiveness.

Brryan asks the question “Who do you dare to become?” to audiences around the world, providing them hope that they can overcome any obstacle that’s in-front of them.
