Being successful at work and in life requires the ability to focus on what is within our control. The pressure of everyday life take a toll, both personally and professionally, inhibiting the opportunity to evolve and realize our full potential. In addition, we are bombareded with negative news headlines in a daily basis and are often exposed to whiney or negative people who cross our paths.

Fortunately, it is refreshing to remind ourselves that we can make choices to manage our inner critic, empower ourselves and live the best life possible!. We can decide to lead ourselves, take charge of our thoughts, and consequently our actions, in any situation. Leadership begins with taking the initiative and leading yourself first.
During stressful times, we are often tested to be the best version of ourselves Our attitudes directly impact the workplace atmosphere and the quality of our relationships with colleagues, residents and those closest to us. We should never underestimate our personal power and ability to control our reality.

  • Are you tapping into your own innovative potential?

  • Are you ready to discover the leader in YOU?

Delivering her message with insight, wit and humour, Michelle’s energizing, informative and dynamic keynote presentation, you will be reminded of the power of positivity and personal leadership.

Tuesday Opening Keynote
A House in the Sky: An Extraordinary Mindset

Tuesday, April 5, 2022
Main Stage
10:00 am – 11:00 am

Raised by a poor single mom in a small city, Amanda Lindhout escaped the violence of her childhood home by paging through issues of National Geographic magazine and imagining herself in its exotic locales. As a young woman, her wanderlust led her to some of the world’s most beautiful and remote places, and its most imperiled and perilous countries.

Insatiably curious about human potential, Amanda became a journalist based in war ridden Iraq and Afghanistan.

In 2008 she travelled to Somalia to report from “the most dangerous place on earth.” Abducted by a group of masked men along a dusty road, Amanda would spend 460 days as a hostage, moved between a series of abandoned houses in the desert, surviving on strategy, fortitude and hope.

Her story of survival builds suspense and momentum to reveal life changing insights into mind conditioning. Amanda’s physical and mental pain led to a pivotal moment where she understood that despite everything, she still had choice and control over the mindset with which she faced each day. Using conviction, affirmation, gratitude, and positive thinking, Amanda survived the unimaginable. With astonishing clarity and self-reflection, she teaches through her powerful example that the stories we tell ourselves become our experiences, and that changing our narrative can transform our struggles into opportunities for growth.

Amanda outlines how coping strategies like mindfulness, visualization, and self-talk strengthen resilience. She describes what qualities enable not only survival, but also the capacity to thrive in the face of adversity.

A captivating, unforgettable speaker, Amanda facilitates a shift in consciousness, leaving the audience with actionable takeaways to develop new thought habits, deeply inspired to take on challenges with a new perspective, and empowered to transform stories of pain into stories of power.
