Featured Speaker: Marli Williams
Wednesday, April 17, 5:30 – 7:00pm
Our happy hour events are a great chance to hang out with like-minded business leaders and professionals, and hear stories from others on their journey to create and lead more conscious businesses.
What is your purpose beyond the company you work for? Where do you find meaning and purpose in every area of your life? This presentation is designed to inspire this group of change-makers to activate their unique purpose in the world. Through interactive group discussions, each person will walk away with a clear Unique Purpose Statement that will help inspire and motivate them to take action and feel reconnected to their purpose in the world in a whole new way.
