June 22nd, 2012 – TEDxKelowna

It was a fantastic event, and definitely something on my ‘bucket list’. For years I have been following and watching videos from the TED series. They are educational, informative, and motivating. This one was no exception.

The speakers included a filmmaker Jan Vozenilek how devastating our own garbage can be. We have now committed to no longer using paper cups at coffee shops.

11 time Iron Man competitor Crystal Flaman,  who told a series of stories about perseverance and persistence. It was exactly what I wanted to hear.

A video of Shawn Achor who talked about happiness. This was absolutely amazing and I’ve forwarded this along to others.

… and many others. This is definitely a day that will define me. I wanted to thank the group who organized it.
