What’s it all about?

Life in your 20s and 30s can be both exciting and confusing. Sometimes decisions are hard to make, as there is no pre-trodden path to follow. And if you feel lost, and stuck in a [quarter] life crisis - where do you begin?

We know that you’ve worked hard to get to where you are - mid way through college, graduating from Univeristy or a few years into a job at the company you aspired to work for.
But perhaps what started out as your dream path no longer feels as good as it once did, or how you imagined it would.

You believe there are different things out there that you would love to do, and that would feel more.."right" for you. But where do you begin?

Getting to know yourself is a great place to start. Understanding how your needs and wants from life have evolved and changed will help you in deciding where to turn next.

The Be You. It's Awesome talk series is here to guide you through it, and help you get to know you.

Join us to invest in your personal development, your intellectual growth and to be inspired to live your life - your way.

Seats per Talk


The speaker was brilliant, loved the stories he shared.


The positivity, the energy and the immediate feeling of friendship in the room. Loved being seen and greeted so warmly. There was action paired with conversation.


The speaker really drew out special stories from the audience, really inspired and encouraged people to share


What I liked most about the event was the advice that the speakers gave and how diverse the background that everyone came from. There’s something for everyone.

It’s new and the format is different. I loved the three reasons of coming to this group! Looking forward to how it evolves.


I liked how honest the speakers were and how there was a good variety of speakers (personalities).


The smaller more intimate group size made it a very welcoming ‘safe’ space for someone new to this and the city! Towards the end it felt like there was a very natural group conversation beginning. Having experienced similar events in London [UK] I have never experience that openness.

How does it work?

We promise two things: To inspire your ideas, and share strategies to put your ideas into action.

Our featured speakers give interactive talks on topics which are curated to inspire and give take-away actions, that you can put into practice on the Skytrain home.

All you need is four things; your open mind, a notebook, a pen and your story.

We bring together an excellent line up of speakers and topics, and pair them with a welcoming and likeminded audience.
It's the recipe for a perfect evening, and the first step for you to live your life - your way.

Are these talks right for me?

Do you answer yes to any of the below?

I feel lost where I am right now and I’m looking to make a change – but don’t really know where to start.
I’m interested in personal development/self growth/self improvement/self development/personal goal setting (or any other buzz words you can think of relating to learning more intellectually or emotionally).

I don’t have anyone to attend with, can I come on my own?

Absolutely Yes!
The majority of talk attendees come as singles. Say yes to stepping out of your comfort zone for a few hours and the possibilities are endless.
I (Sam – your host) have been a solo talk attendee in both London and Vancouver, so I understand the apprehension.
These talks are designed to be fun, open and welcoming, and I’d love to meet you.
When you arrive, just let me know and I’ll be happy to introduce you to someone who’s in the same boat.

Am I expected to speak?

The Be You. It’s Awesome talks are organised, so the speakers are ‘featured’ speakers.
The talks are interactive meaning you can ask questions and give your thoughts (a huge plus for most attendees), but there is no pressure for an attendee to share their story unless they volunteer it.
You will never be put on the spot – just share if you feel like it. And if not feel free to sit back and listen 🙂 but don’t forget your notebook and pen!

Where will the talks be held?

All of our ‘Be You. It’s Awesome’ talks will be held at locations within Downtown Vancouver.
We choose environments which are suitable for learning something new, and which offer a relaxed and social atmosphere. We know that being close to transit is important for you, so each of our venues is easily accessible from the Sky Train or served by local bus routes.

How much are the tickets?

We believe in value for money.
All the tickets will be available for $20 or less. For 90 minutes of inspiration from our amazing speakers in the series, plus take-home strategies so you can put what you’ve learned into practice AND one of the best personal development networking opportunities in the city, you get a lot of bang for your buck!
What’s more, for every ticket purchased a donation is made to our Charity Partner – Kids Up Front – not only are you doing a good thing for you, but you’re doing a good thing for someone else too.
