2010 Cal Botterill Legacy Lecture
Dr. Curt Tribble on: The Mental Strategies of Surgeons & Applied Psychology and High Performance
On Wednesday, September 15 Dr. Tribble will be giving two presentations which are open to the public and free of charge.

The second is Applied Psychology and High Performance at the University of Winnipeg's Eckhart Grammate Hall from 7 to 8:30pm. After both presentations there will be time for questions.
The Cal Botterill Legacy lecture is an annual lecture, in which an individual is brought to our community to inspire and strengthen us. The aim is for the person to share their wisdom and experience, and also to allow us an opportunity to continue to grow as a sport community. This lecture series began in 2007 in order to honor the ongoing contributions of Dr. Cal Botterill, someone who is passionate about helping people fulfill their sport and human potential.
Cal Botterill is part of an "active" family. His wife, Doreen (a former 2 -time Olympian Speed skater) is a former elementary school physical education teacher at Brock Corydon School in Winnipeg. Their daughter, Jennifer (a graduate of Harvard University) is a 2-time gold and silver Olympic medallist, a 5-time World Champion, and NCAA Champion in ice hockey.
Their son Jason (an MBA graduate of The University of Michigan) is a three-time World Junior Champion, a NCAA Champion, and a Calder Cup Champion (AHL) in hockey. Striving to develop and maintain perspective played a huge role as the family grew up in Wildwood Park (Winnipeg, MB), traveled, and explored the world's opportunities. Cal has been part of Canadian Teams at eight different Olympic Games, and has consulted for five NHL teams (including the 1994 Stanley Cup Champion New York Rangers). Cal has received teaching excellence awards at both the University of Winnipeg and the University of Calgary.
Cal has enjoyed opportunities to contribute in medicine, business, health, education, emergency professions, performing arts and the media. He has championed "interactive learning" via technology and maintained a strong interest in global and personal issues. As the author of hundreds of articles, books, videos and presentations, Cal has helped popularize "health and performance psychology". Nature, family and professional colleagues play a huge role in his perspective.
