In 2018, he was awarded the Barry Sharp Award of Excellence for his work to promote and foster student leadership across Canada. He is the only non-teacher to receive this award in its history. Stu is also the recipient of the London Ambassadors Award for promoting leadership excellence. 


Stu is the Founder and Creator of The Global Student Leadership Summit, Global Student Leadership Day and now, “The Academy”. He has a passion for leadership development and is a gifted storyteller. 


The success of the Academy will be built largely on the guest Faculty.


GSLA Faculty members travel the world every year sharing their knowledge and skills to diverse audiences. Many are international best-selling authors and award-winners in their fields.


Academy students will have the chance to learn directly from them and have exclusive access that many of their biggest clients don't even get. Each day there will be a live Q&A, as well as an opportunity to email in questions.


Many will be providing special, exclusive access to their published literature and their own unique programs just for students of GSLA. A list of some of the faculty from both GSLS, GSLD and GSLA are listed below. Many more will be announced as we go and grow.
