I come alive when I am sharing energy with an audience. Be that in my spin class, on a stage with a mic, or doing a small training session. I just eat. it. up!
On the weekend, I had to privilege of presenting at the UBC Student Leadership Conference. Other great people on the bill included Imagine1Day‘s Adam Millard, Smart Cookie Andrea Baxter, Run For One Planet‘s Matt Hill & Steph Tait, opening keynote Drew Duddley, the gents from The Buried Life, and some pretty outstanding students and alumni from UBC.
A cool perk of the day was I walked away with some shiny hardware – a nice “Best of the SLC” award for my presentation on creative communication. (We drew simple pictures for 40 minutes. And I guess they really liked my triangles?)
A cooler perk of the day was I got to present to the next Prime Minister of Canada. The next ground breaking entrepreneur was also in one of my sessions. The person who’s about to create the next sustainable alternative to oil? There too! He was sitting beside the girl who is about to beat an athletic world record.
I refer to presenting at the SLC as a privilege because I get to play a small role in the story of those students’ lives. The who’s who and leaders of campus are out there in full force and I am humbled when I get to speak to them. Why? Because they are the ones who are just coated in potential. They are are bound to set this world on fire by being who they are being and doing what they’re doing.
Winning another award is great. But playing a part in the success of these great lives is what really keeps me coming back for more.
