THE TRAUMA CODE - Physical & Emotional Injury, Unlocking performance, Recovery Solutions and science to prove that you heal yourself.

THRIVING in TRANSITION, How to turn adversity into the opportunity of a lifetime

KEYNOTE Unlock The Mind & Unlock Performance.

An awakening journey from childhood leg braces, unlikely rise to the NHL by 18, brain injury, spinal cord injury and the tools in the mind that anyone can access to recover faster and perform better. Introducing the latest scientific research on the human mind, the story delineates Doug’s realizations after breaking his neck and experience of taking control of his self image, conditioning, trauma and performance in his personal and business life after hockey, to raising your own personal and business performance levels today. Doug reveals the tools he used and you can use as well. The result of hard work and waking up after his identity was shattered by a head first collision with the boards.

“It was uncanny how Doug's keynote was in perfect alignment with our two day leadership workshop without us briefing him in advance. We got the inspiring message that we were expecting and we got much more.”
James S. Paul, President & CEO Defence Construction Canada

“The Trauma Code is a must read for those studying personal development, recovery and performance. It is rare that personal achievement and the science to back it up are demonstrated in the same book. Doug Smith has done it!”
- Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul

“Doug brings a passion that is rooted in real life experience. He puts a new perspective on challenges and hearing him speak helped my business and my career.”
Landon French, AVP, Corporate Affairs & Event, Canadian Tire Corporation
