Chance of a lifetime


Personal / Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

This post is part of the YummyMummyClub.ca and The Art of Leadership for Women #YMCLeadership sponsored program. I received compensation as a thank you for my participation. This post reflects my personal opinion about the information provided by the sponsors.

I have learned over the past year or so how inspirational it is to spend time with great women, listening to them talk about the lessons they’ve learned over the course of their careers and their lives.

Attending Blissdom Canada last year pushed me forward for months, and that’s why I am ecstatic to be attending The Art of Leadership for Women conference at the end of this month.

The day is guaranteed to be chock full of lessons, inspiration and shared experiences and I couldn’t be more excited.

Spending the day in a room full of women with different experiences to share while listening to the likes of Martha Stewart and Hayley Wickenheiser talk about balance and leadership will keep me rolling for weeks if not months.

I am most excited to learn about Martha Stewart’s approach to life-long learning. Learning new things is always something I strive for, but it can be so easy to rest on your laurels. Clearly Stewart is not a woman who has ever done that. And she doesn’t stay down either. Wickenheiser will also talk about avoiding complacency and striving to be better.

Taking a lesson in confidence and pushing myself from six women who have spent their lives proving themselves in a man’s world can only make me better.

Sharing the experience with other women who will be asking questions, taking away their own lessons and blogging about what they learned is going to add another level to the experience.  Coming away from an event like this, you can read through tweets and blog posts and learn more new things through different eyes.

Together, over the course of a day, we will become a community that can teach each other.

I am so thankful to YummyMummyClub.ca for the opportunity to attend, and I will be sharing my experience throughout the day. I’ve always found that live-tweeting or live-blogging really helps me retain what I’m learning, as well as helping others learn.

The event takes place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on May 29, and if you think it sounds as awesome as I think it does there’s still time to register at this link, using the code YMC32 to get a discount of up to $100 off your ticket. If you need a day to recharge, to connect, to learn about balance and growth I have to recommend it.

On May 28 I go to Toronto and on May 29 I will be coming back energized and ready to move forward with what I learn.
