Brent Hiscock's speaking career began with him dropping out of community college. To date, Hiscock has no academic credentials to his name. Instead of commencing the typical post secondary education route, Hiscock took on a variety of odd jobs such as oil rigging and bar-tending in various geographic locations. He applied this practical experience to other aspects of life.
As an avid traveler, Hiscock is constantly searching for methods of self-expression and personal fulfillment. Hiscock has an inquisitive mind and insatiable appetite for learning; he is an eternal student of life, constantly questioning, exploring and ruminating on different ways to educate. His TEDxNovaScotia talk documents his unconventional educational process and the emotional, intellectual and personal gains it yielded him.
