On Tuesday, October 2 over 260 people attended the 5th Annual Day of Hope and Leadership. Dan gave the opening keynote – 5 Principles of Authenticity. The day was an overwhelming success and raised over $50,000 for the Hope Centre of Learning and Oshawa Community Health Centre.
The Day of Hope and Leadership was created to help equip, develop and motivate leaders to meet the challenges that many sectors face today. Through this interactive day, attendees had the opportunity to be inspired by world class speakers and receive practical tools and ideas that can be easily adapted to each attendee’s environment. Each attendee was challenged to work within a team from different sectors helping to create and share new and innovative ideas and contacts.
In our search for this year’s theme, we had discovered that the topic of authenticity has been one of the most talked about, written about and debated topics – but what is authenticity? How can it impact your professional life? How important is authenticity? Does it have a role in our business, families and relationships? Is authenticity idealistic or realistic? The day lead to uncovering the answers to these questions and many more. A lot of thought-provoking discussion throughout the day occurred.
The Hope Team features many talented speakers (all who waive their speaking fees and give up many hours of their time to create this amazing event):
