I’m crazy nervous about this but at the same time really excited (what’s a word to describe nervous+excited? my dictionary is not helping me right now).

There’s no easy way to say this, but I will be speaking from the same stage as Richard Branson, Sean Stephenson, and even the Dalai Lama.


I couldn’t believe it at first. I am literally bursting with happiness and feel so uplifted to be even considered to speak at the same event as these giants.

And as one of our 230,000 FinerMinds readers I’m hoping you might get a chance to attend.

Alright so these are the details. The event (some of you already know this) is called Engage Today. It’s happening September 30th to October 3rd, this year and it’ll be held in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

This isn’t any ol’ conference. It comes with intent and the purpose to affect change on a global scale. What’s even more amazing is that you’re a part of this change too. The whole goal of the conference is to bring together world geniuses under one roof to create a catalyst for economic, social, and environmental change.

dalaiAnd here’s where you come in. This conference is a place for individuals to learn how to adjust their methods of thinking for a new world. This is where you’ll learn to use your passion to make a difference.

If that wasn’t enough, check out some of the people speaking at this event.

So you know how I feel about this whole event. Now I want to know how you feel about it. Who would you want to meet the most and why. For me it was always Richard Branson. His stance on social entrepreneurship and all of his efforts to help the environment and society are immense but now I can’t wait to meet the His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama. So what I want from you is this:
