Biography

Twenty-Two years ago Stuart Knight did something courageous, daring and uncommon. He listened to his heart. It told him that too many people were not living up to their potential, and he decided to do something about it. At the ripe age of 24, with no money or experience, he wrote an inspiring theatre show for teenagers. Within a short amount of time it was picked up by Coca Cola and toured nationally for three years.

From there he decided to become the first Canadian ever to write and star in a musical that he produced in his own loft. No small feat considering he couldn’t play an instrument. It became the longest running play of its kind, and A-list influencers lined up to witness sold out shows in a theatre Stuart not only built, but also lived in.

During that time, some of the world’s biggest business leaders recognized Stuart as a visionary who could help their organization reach new levels of success. Since then Stuart has been flown around the world, speaking in places such as Sydney, Malta, Edinburgh, Mumbai, New York, Frankfurt and Las Vegas helping Fortune 500 companies learn what it takes to be the best.

As Stuart Knight’s success flourished, he wanted to do something that would help raise thousands of dollars for charities around the world and decided to create the Top Ten Event, which is now one of Canada’s biggest speaking extravaganzas. The event has quickly grown into one of Canada’s must see events, garnering over 30 million media impressions and has starred such names as Jim Cuddy, Deepa Mehta, Mary Walsh, Steven Page and two time Oscar Award Winner Jane Fonda.

On top of all of this, Stuart Knight is an award winning entrepreneur, a critically acclaimed author of two books, an expert panellist on numerous television shows, the host of a hit radio show, has a sought after podcast and has over twelve thousand people from around the world tuning in each week to watch his thought provoking videos online. As a disrupter, thought leader and maverick, Stuart Knight has inspired over one million people reach greater success, find deeper joy and to ultimately boycott what they thought.
