Speaker Biographies

Deanne Lawrence
Deanne is the Economic Development and Tourism Officer for the Town of Torbay! Apart from her Certificates in Economic Development and Applied Management, Deanne also has a degree in Archaeology and truly believes that innovative community development can be achieved through great collaborations. After 15 years living in AB, Deanne and her family moved back home in 2019 – she couldn’t bare it any longer to be away from the ocean and downhome feels of NL!

Danny Reid
Danny Reid is Business Development Officer with CBDC Cabot, providing business financing, support and guidance to the entrepreneurs of rural North East Avalon. Danny always had an inkling for the political arena, but knew his dark, sullied past would never allow for that. Instead he changes the world in more organic ways through small business lending and community economic development, mentoring, volunteering and trying to raise a good kid.

Cyndy Stead
Cyndy holds a degree in Human Resources Labour & Relations with Distinction and a Certificate of Economic Development and 20+ years of experience collaborating with community organizations to move economic development initiatives forward. With a progressive career in a variety of sectors including the Fishery, Employment, and Tourism Cyndy is the Geopark Manager of the DUGG which is in the Province of Newfoundland & Labrador (NL), Canada. As the first (1st) UGGp within her home province, Cyndy works with the Board of Directors and Community Committees to highlight the area’s geological significance (560-Billion-Year-old Ediacaran Fossils) while developing sustainable programs that promote and grow the region, while protecting its’ natural and cultural values.
