About Stuart Knight


Twenty-six years ago Stuart Knight did something courageous, daring and uncommon. He listened to his heart. It told him that too many people were not living up to their potential, and he decided to do something about it.

At the ripe age of 24, with no money or experience, he wrote an inspiring theatre show for teenagers. Within a short amount of time it was picked up by Coca Cola and toured nationally for three years.

From there he decided to become the first Canadian ever to write and star in a musical that he produced in his own loft. No small feat considering he couldn’t play an instrument. It became the longest running play of its kind, and A-list influencers lined up to witness sold out shows in a theatre Stuart not only built, but also lived in.

During that time, some of the world’s biggest business leaders recognized Stuart as a visionary who could help their organization reach new levels of success. Since then, he has spoken in such cities as Sydney, Malta, Edinburgh, Mumbai, New York, Frankfurt and Las Vegas helping Fortune 500 companies learn what it takes to be the best.

It was at this point in his career that he wanted to do something that would help raise money for charities close to his heart, and decided to create the Top Ten Event.  The event has quickly grew into one of Canada’s "must see" productions, garnering over 30 million media impressions attracting such names as Jim Cuddy, Deepa Mehta, Mary Walsh, Steven Page and two time Oscar Award Winner Jane Fonda.

Along the way, Stuart wrote 2 critically acclaimed books, hosted a hit radio show, developed a sought after podcast, won entrepreneurial awards, and today has over 12,000 people around the world tuning in each week to watch his thought-provoking videos online.  As a disrupter, thought leader and maverick, Stuart Knight has inspired over one million people to reach greater success, find deeper joy and ultimately to boycott what they thought.
