Michael Smith

Hi! I'm Mike, a father of two, a proven-problem solver in many disciplines, and just trying to leave a positive impact along the way. Here's the official version: I'm an advocate for using technology to increase productivity. From my early days as an automotive technician to managing training for BRP’s Powersport division, I've always wanted to create a culture in the workplace that challenges the traditional ways of getting work done. Some call me a thought leader (others call me a pain in the butt) in the Canadian transportation industry where I like to share my passion with like-minded groups. My ideas landed me gigs as a guest speaker for the Canadian Association of Motive Power Educators (CAMPE) and the North American Council of Automotive Teachers (NACAT).
