2011 Spirit of CAPS recipient Bob 'Idea Man' Hooey

The Spirit of CAPS may be awarded to one CAPS member each year who demonstrates the spirit of sharing, leading and inspiring other professional speakers, trainers and facilitators within the mission, vision, and values of CAPS. This member will have demonstrated the qualities of generosity, spirit and professionalism over many years and reflected outstanding credit, respect, honour and admiration in the Association.

The Canadian Association of Professional Speakers

Vision - The association of choice for experts who speak professionally

Mission - To raise the profile and professionalism of our members

Values - Connection * Continuous Improvement * Professionalism

"The Spirit of CAPS is what sets this organization apart from so many others. It is that spirit of selfless service to each other to help us all improve and be better at our game.

This year’s recipient has lived and demonstrated this spirit for longer than CAPS has been around, starting to serve the closest NSA chapter, and was one of the charter members of both CAPS and the Global Speakers Federation.

This year’s recipient has served on the boards of not one, but two chapters as well as the CAPS national board and numerous CAPS and NSA committees and several CAPS convention committees over the years.

This person was the first Canadian attendee at Camp NSA, and is now helping new chapter leaders pave the way forward as a member of the NSA Chapter Leadership Council.

This individual has previously been recognized as a Lamplighter with NSA and with the CAPS President’s Award, presented by Patricial Katz, CSP, HoF.

He is a Trustee of the CAPS Foundation, the incoming president of CAPS Edmonton, and always there to help if you ask for help.

Please help me in welcoming this year’s Spirit of CAPS winner, Bob Hooey."

Michael Hughes

2015 Spirit of CAPS recipient was Michael Hughes who has chaired the CAPS Foundation for many years.

Note from Bob: I have to admit I did not see this award coming. I am grateful for this privilege and honor and to be in the company of so many great CAPS speakers and friends.

I am also very conscious that this is not really a singular honor. It is, in my case, one shared with the hundreds of fellow CAPS, NSA, and GSF speakers and colleagues who graciously said yes when I asked for help. Some of those who said yes are in this prestigious list. To my NSA friends, The Spirit of CAPS is our version of The Cavett. CAPS does not have one person who was instrumental in its start as Cavett Robert was for NSA, it has many. I am priviledged to be one of them.

I share it as well with the leaders in both CAPS and NSA who have contributed to my growth and to the success and growth of our respective organizations. I share this also with my wife Irene, who has been way 'beyond' supportive as I have taken on these various roles. This award was not won in isolation, but with the willing and sometimes sacrificial help of others. I remain fully in their debt. I accepted it on their behalf and will cherish it. Thanks so much!
