This event brought together emerging leaders with established leaders in the Sea to Sky corridor to support women to affect greater change in their lives, their families, their communities, and the workplace.
In the morning, Laurin Kyle Boyle led participants through the Passion Test. This fun, interactive activity supports individuals to discover or clarify what they are passionate about and how that can inform decisions and life choices.
After a delicious buffet lunch and an hour of networking, women participated in a variety of workshops with a goal of establishing mentorship networks that connect women and support ongoing personal and professional development long after this event is over.

What are your blocks to being the kind of leader you want to be? Could they relate to feeling occasionally overwhelmed, frustrated, annoyed, nervous or insecure? At this workshop you will gain skills for dealing with residual and everyday emotional challenges, including stress management, following the handouts and practicing with the leader. This consecutive two session workshop will give you the tool to use at work and at home. You will walk away from the workshop with benefits and if you use it more, you will notice life-changing differences and so will those around you.
In Session two (2:15pm – 3pm), you use your new tool to work on a “disturbing issue”. You choose whether you want to discuss this with the whole group – no disclosure needed. This segment demonstrates the depth of EFT, as a volunteer will be guided through an event which they experience as quite intensely emotional, to seeing the same event as neutral or even humorous. While “tapping along”, observers will experience benefits themselves, with regard to similar and even unrelated events.
