Hayley Wickenheiser Inspires Home Builders

Avi Urban is a long-time member of the Canadian Home Builders’ Assocation (CHBA), and our president Charron Ungar attended a members meeting this week, which featured four –time Olympic medalist Hayley Wickenheiser.

Wickenheiser shared with the CHBA members her views on the secrets to success and what it takes to be the best at what you do. “It takes teamwork and a willingness to work with a variety of people and to listen to your coach even when you don’t’ always agree,” says Wickenheiser. “When you achieve something you set out for, it’s not like you think ’that’s it’. Then you start thinking, ‘what other goals can I set and work towards?’”

Wickenheiser has been named one of the top 25 toughest athletes in the world by Sports Illustrated. “She was a phenomenal speaker,” shares Ungar. The event also included the presentation of winners for the annual Student House Design Competition.

The CHBA allows members to interact with other industry leaders, while providing expertise and information regarding  government representation, networking opportunities, along with industry news and information. Our Avi Urban team is proud to be a member of this organization.
