Better Living Toolbox

The Directors of Better Living Toolbox have offered hundreds of retreats, presentations, and courses over the past 30 years.  The content of each program has been thoroughly researched and is constantly updated with the latest information.  Our goal is to help participants obtain the best possible outcomes for personal growth, health and healing.

Topics are presented as speeches (30-60 minutes), seminars (2-3 hours), workshops (1 day), and retreats (usually 2-3 days).  Customized programs and additional topics can be developed.  The fees charged are adjusted for organizations based on size and resources.  Public education programs are often offered at no cost.

Program leader Michael Campbell MS, APR (Former CEO, healthcare executive, professor) works with a team of professionals who have exceptional qualifications.

Many programs are offered in conjunction with Dominion Hill, an historic estate near St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, New Brunswick.
