Last year I had the immense pleasure of attending Leading Moms as a blog ambassador. I was a new writer, a new blogger and a mom still struggling to find her “parent” legs. I struggled constantly with my own inspiration, embracing my challenges and turning them into opportunities. I struggled with anxiety and a constant fear of my own self esteem. Leading Moms 2014 was a game changer for me.
I have always said – and will continue to say – that women as a group can move mountains. There is something to be said about a group of like minded women, ones that strive to see a change in ourselves and our world for our children. The passion that fills a room when our hearts are filled. To experience this all in one morning? Mind blown!
Leading Moms is a one-day, world changing (it certainly changed mine!) event featuring inspiring talks from extraordinary moms – moms that understand the struggles of motherhood and balancing life alongside littles. This year’s speaker line-up includes key influencers in media, arts, health, social change and so much more. In a mix of mesmerizing performances, video and unforgettable live talks, this incredible roster of moms will deliver personal talks straight from their heart.
This year’s event boasts an incredible speaker line-up, including award-winning CTV investigative, reporter, anchor and breast cancer survivor Mi-Jung Lee, Transalliance activist Morgane Oger and super poet Samantha Reynolds. This event won’t disappoint.
Join us with an open mind, an open heart and a be ready to leave with a full spirit – this event exposes the challenges of being a mom, of juggling a career around our families and so much more all while uplifting every mom in the room. The speakers get it – we get it – each and every woman in the room understands the challenges of discovering yourself through motherhood. It was so incredible for me last year to connect with these women, to relate so closely to their stories and to be able to share my own through the connections I made at the event. You don’t want to miss this. Nervous about maybe attending on your own? Grab early bird tickets for you and a friend – or even just find me and say hello. You owe yourself this uninterrupted time to focus on you. Surround yourself, recharge, be inspired!
