Burwash is a featured international speaker for Fortune 500 companies and devotes his time as a keynote speaker, consultant and seminar specialist giving more than 100 speeches a year. The former Canadian champion and Davis Cup player coached and played in 135 countries. As a player, he won 19 international singles and doubles titles and competed on the ATP Tour from 1968-74.
