Featuring Stan Wesley and his Pan-Deadly Gameshow

Stan Wesley Pan-Deadly Gameshow isn’t just a typical gameshow, it’s online and straight up DEADLY. A fun hour filled with enough action to rival a night of jigging at your Aunties house. Get ready to test your knowledge of trivia for bonus points for your team.

Stan Wesley

For over 21 years, Stan Wesley has engaged and entertained audiences with his
unique style of presentations, keynotes, emcee and facilitation services. Working
at the local, regional, provincial and national levels, he speaks on a variety of
issues with a focus on celebrating success and advancing good, healthy relations
among Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples.
With his high-energy, sincere, professional approach, he is considered by many to
be one of the top speakers in the country today.
