A Ted Talks-Style Event for Women focused on Lifestyle + Leadership, integrated

PowHERhouse Performance Strategies proudly announces that Angie Barnard and Julia Chung have accepted the position of Event Hosts for our upcoming women’s event in Nanaimo on October 24th and in Vancouver, March 5th, respectively.  PowHERtalks is an upcoming speaker series which will take place in Nanaimo, Sechelt, Squamish, Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto between October 2015 and May 2016.

This series provides a platform and a process that encourage women to develop a talk, practice it, and secure the support they need to be able to confidently and concisely deliver it – both the content of the message as well as its delivery, including how to harness ‘courage from your core’.  Practice workshops will be held in each community leading up to the featured speaker event.
