Keynote Speaking


Husband & wife team Tanya McCready & Hank DeBruin owners of Winterdance Dogsled Tours enjoy sharing their story and building the bridge between the corporate world and their 1000 mile arctic dogsled race one.  Their mission is to inspire teams to overcome challenges and reach their goals through improved teamwork, leadership and vision.  Having run the 1000 mile 2010 & 2012 Iditarod and the 1000 mile 2011 & 2014 Yukon Quests (plus many 200-400 mile races) the lessons and insights into how leaders inspire & teams work together to thrive are as vast and unique as the landscapes they have dogsledded through…. and the same principles that apply to their huskies also applies to your team.

While it may seem like the 2 worlds are at polar opposites (pun intended!), the connections and lessons to be learned and applied leave audiences taken back and engaged time and time again.  Tanya connects the corporate & dogsledding worlds and shares lessons, demonstrations and examples, while Hank holds audiences spell bound with his stories of what it takes to race a team of huskies 1000 miles through the Alaskan & Yukon wilderness.

Limited speaking engagements are available each year in the spring, summer and fall.  Please contact or call 705-457-5281 for available dates and more information.

Corporate dogsledding retreats (with our partners at are also available in the winter and make for excellent team building! Depending on Hank’s race schedule a speaking engagement can sometimes be added in the evening to these retreats.
