It’s hard to believe I am going on my 3rd year as a Leading Moms Ambassador, I have such fond memories of my very first time stepping into a room of heart strong women, how instantly inspired I was and how warmly we were all welcomed. It’s not often that you have an up close, intimidate chat with many of the influential moms you look up to in the media, but Leading Moms gives you that and more. In my first year as an attendee, I was able to chat one on one with Tamara Taggart and Taryn Brumfitt, two women that I so strongly admire. In my second year, I was able to have lunch with Morgane Oger, another mom who I strongly admire for her activism work in and around Vancouver. I was able to fully immerse myself in their stories, their challenges that so strongly resonated with my own battles and feel like I wasn’t alone.
And that’s Leading Moms. On Friday, September 23, 2016, Crisp Media (producer of VancouverMom.ca) will be hosting the fifth annual Leading Moms at the Vancity Theatre in downtown Vancouver. And YOU’RE invited.
There’s something so empowering about opening your heart, each year Leading Moms has blown me away with the talks that have left me feeling like I could literally take on the world. To say I was inspired would long be an understatement, just to know that I am not the only one fighting that bedtime battle while trying to juggle a career is pretty much gold.
This year’s line-up is no different and includes some women I have the immense pleasure of not only having met over my blogging career but worked closely with. From the lovely duo being Bobs & Lolo, Robyn Hardy (Bobs) and Lorraine Pond (LoLo) who have long since won over my child’s heart, to the Dragon’s Den slayer Elaine Tan Comeau from Easy Daysies and Tara Teng, a fellow blogger, activist and Miss World Canada 2012 of whom I had the pleasure of watching her journey through our church updates. I am truly blessed to already know these women, and so excited to hear the stories they are gearing up to share with us.
