Say what? “Feel inspired by the notion of NOT following the status quo.”

In Discovering Purpose Through Your Story, Mocha will encourage us to examine our life experience – both the good and the bad – so that we can discover our purpose, and the passion that will ignite it.

Say what? “What makes your heart sing?”

ANGIE QUAALE: Entrepreneur, volunteer, and elected Councillor who will show us how every experience is an opportunity to learn, to grow, and to meet people who make it all worthwhile.

Say what? “Say yes.”

Call for Panelists

Fort Langley Community HallSeeking Storytellers, Innovators, and Creative Thinkers

Identifying your passion, and finding a way to use it to do purposeful work is not as easy, or as simple as it sounds – especially if you want your activities to bring in an income, or to mesh with your current lifestyle.

From Passion to Purpose Events is seeking speakers for The CREATIVE CHANGE-MAKING Conference Panel who have successfully transitioned from thinking about a new life, to living it.

We need storytellers whose passion has become the basis of their work, whether by building a business or a social enterprise; through public service, in a not-for-profit setting, or as a volunteer, etc. We need people who can inspire others with their experience, as well as answer audience how-to questions about changing one’s life direction.

All panelists will receive an honorarium and one free Conference Registration. Since this is a passion project, funding is limited, and travel expenses cannot be reimbursed. For complete details, and to submit, please click here.

Deadline to submit: January 3, 2018.
