PechaKucha Whistler: recap


What an incredible event! I am honoured to have been a part of last weekend's PechaKucha Whistler, Vol 7.

The topics were diverse, and the other presenters left me touched, moved and inspired. Congratulations to my fellow speakers, and a huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone who attended. A special thank you to Aki Kaltenbach who organized the event.

I spoke about the work I have created outside my 'day job,' such as Small World Big Dreams and the Gratitude Wall, my passion for projects that involve communities, and how continuously asking myself "what if?" has led me to incredible creative discoveries.


Beyond Luon speaking engagement


Beyond Luon was created by lululemon athletica, and it is much more than a speaker series.

It is a night of inspiration and hearts on fire. Organized as a one evening event, it features radical, life-loving individuals from the lululemon community sharing their stories. You will leave drunk on wonder and love for our incredible community. 

I am honoured to be speaking at this amazing event alongside such inspiring, outstanding individuals. I will be talking about my work on the Small World Big Dreams project, and how it relates to goal setting, the difference I want to make in the world, and what happens when we face big challenges.

Beyond Luon takes place Sunday August 12 on Granville Island.


Update April 1, 2013:   While the event I spoke at wasn't filmed, there is video of this year's Beyond Luon held in LA. It gives you a sense of the event:
