FOUNDER & DIRECTOR
Joel teaches at McMaster University, and he speaks and writes about leadership, success, and creating a better world. A true renaissance man, he is a juggler, barbershop quartet singer, occasional yogi, and father of 3 kids - two of whom were born on the same day.
Calder spends most of his time teaching math and chess, and occasionally writing spooky tales. He used to mess around with DNA, but found the microbes and fish he was working with to be poor conversationalists. He is currently editing an anthology about ham sandwiches.
Jenna is known for her creative and out-of-the-box business and community initiatives. For the past decade she has been focused on coaching and consulting entrepreneurs and small businesses, while also training and presenting at public and corporate events. She hosts a local TV show, runs a community centre out of an old farmhouse, and will probably own a pet pig one day.
Andrew is a professionally trained circus artist. He fast-tracked a university degree to go join the circus. In fact, he used performance to conquer an anxiety disorder. He is the founder of the Youth Circus Project and has performed for audiences around the world.
Luis is a life coach, facilitator & motivational speaker. He is obsessed with maximizing human potential through the power of play! He has studied positive psychology, practiced & performed improv for over 8 years & facilitated hundreds of public and corporate workshops.
Chelsea comes from a big family and has earned the title of the ‘cool aunt’. She is an athlete that dabbles in all sports… the latest being golf! Just like her hobbies, Chelsea has her hands in everything at The Beanstalk Project - helping the team wherever she is needed most!
Melanie has a passion for helping people and seeing youth succeed! She has an entreprenurial spirit - having run her own children's theatre company for 13+ years! With her film background, she brings a wealth of experience and skill to media production & is always seeing how she can help fabulous educators.
Rob KissDIGITAL MEDIA SPECIALIST
Rob is a photographer with an eye for great moments and an ear for terrible puns. When he's not behind the camera shooting the Beanstalk Team, he’s either juggling camera lenses or juggling time on the ship with his friends… the friend-ship, see what I mean?

Judi TarakjiFACILITATOR & SPEAKER
Judi spends much of her time working with animals and educating kids about how to save the environment. When she’s not doing that, she’s playing the guitar, collecting fossils, or fly fishing. All in all, just an overly ambitious girl that sings “don’t stop believing” at every party.
