Carla White

With over three decades of experience as a consultant, facilitator and one of the first female Emergency Services Firefighters, Carla White earned her resilience expertise by rising from the ashes of life’s literal and figurative fires.

Today, she’s on a mission to educate, empower and inspire others to stop letting life’s inevitable fires burn them to the ground and start reigniting their own spark. From burnout and depression during her nursing career, to specialising in dealing with crisis and chaos in her work with clients and surviving the 2016 Fort McMurray wildfire - Canada’s largest and most expensive natural disaster in history - Carla knows a thing or two about bouncing forward from life’s rock bottom moments.

Carla is the author of the International best-selling book: Reignite your Spark: Simple Steps to Extinguish Stress and go from Burned Out to Fired Up, and a 3x International best-selling co-author, including her featured story in Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Spirit of Canada.  As a dynamic presenter, Carla brings a relatable, results-driven wit and charm to her exceptional storytelling. Part powerful mindset practices, part life and business skill building, Carla’s uncanny ability to transform audiences with her unique fusion of heart, humour and high impact content is unparalleled.
