Since Inuit and Native culture is also about diversity, this would be a good place to mention that there is some new video footage of professional diversity speaker Clint Cora, who was also the author of the Inuit art and Native art ebooks at Free Spirit Gallery. The previous video was over 8 minutes but parts of it were replaced by a recent motivation talk which actually brought the video down to under 8 minutes. This revamped video can be seen at the official homepage of diversity speaker Clint Cora.

Karate world champion Clint Cora's new motivation book, The Life Champion In You is now available on Amazon.com and soon will be available at other online retailers as well. You can also order it at your local bookstore by quoting the ISBN number 978-0-9809190-1-1 and ask them to order it in through Ingram International distributors. Clint was also the author of the Inuit art and Northwest Indian art ebooks at Free Spirit Gallery.
I just spent the last two days updating the entire Free Spirit Gallery Inuit and Native art website. Most of the changes will be rather transparent to people since they involved things like updating the year of the copyright. There are also some additional links to partners added in many of the pages so we definitely encourage visitors to check them out. Enjoy the continuing development of the Free Spirit Gallery website.

Here is a new article by diversity speaker Clint Cora which highlights some major benefits of workplace diversity training for organizations.

Canadian motivational speaker Clint Cora will have to wait maybe another week before he can launch his much anticipated book, 'The Life Champion In You' due to a formatting issue with the printers. His ebook version is actually ready but won't be available until the launch of the printed softcover. Clint says that he wants to make both the ebook and the printed softcover available at the same time. Meanwhile, the Canadian motivational speaker is actively working on further projects including possible books on diversity and one for youth.

Toronto motivational speaker and karate world champion Clint Cora, hopes to positively impact Arctic area high school students with a specially developed keynote presentation for youth and teens someday. He will likely start in southern Ontario first since that is the area he is based. Of course, he welcomes other local school boards to connect with him to discuss how he can help influence the students to choose positive lifestyle and career decisions. But an Arctic trip to speak to Inuit students will certainly be very fulfilling.

I was the guest speaker at a Toronto area Rotary club yesterday and I noticed that one of the members had a bolo tie featuring a northwest indian art design of a thunderbird. When I asked him about it, he said that it was designed by Haida artist Bill Reid. Then we talked about some of Bill Reid's work including his large sculptures such as the giant Haida whale at the Museum of Civilization in Gatineau.

One of our Canadian customers ordered an Inuit inukshuk sculpture to have it shipped to Germany. Shipping overseas is one of the services we offer so we were able to do that for her. This will be a very special gift to her friend in Germany as it is a uniquely Canadian item as well.

My next book, "The Life Champion In You", has just passed the editing phase yesterday (finally!). The next step for this motivational book project is to create the cover. Once the cover is done, an ebook or electronic version of the book can be released. I don't think this will take long, maybe another week or so. To get the printed softcover version will take a bit more work as things must get formatted differently. That might take another week or two. So the ebook version will definitely be ready before January is out and it will be February for the printed version of my new motivational book.

The links to one of our African Art Gallery partners, Strictly Africa, were not working right but this has been fixed. Our links now go to their main webpage and you would have to select one of the product categories on the left side to see the items you want to see. They have some really nice African art including masks, carvings and even African drums. Definitely worth a look.
