Profile Murray C. Watson is a retired teacher, an ACS Toastmaster, author, and an award-winning motivational speaker who went from the Valley of Depression up to Serenity Avenue when he found an ancient lifestyle treatment with no side-effects. With humor, enthusiasm and emotional connection, he conveys wisdom and encouragement to rapt audiences. Infant digestive illness, extreme shyness, sleep apnea, and adult memory damage (following drug treatment in a Toronto hospital for depression in 1993) failed to cure him of his childhood dream – and for most of his life his worst nightmare – to speak in public. He is a repeat speaker (four speeches at Norwood high school, three speeches at Peterborough Kiwanis club) whose most popular presentations include 'Putting the Brakes on Speech Anxiety' and 'Down with Depression.' Murray's favorite feedback is from a high school student: β€œIt wasn't a speech by someone who didn't understand what it's actually like to be depressed... and how to fix it.”
