What’s it all about?

We believe you deserve to be living a life that you love. Life is simply too short to be doing work you don’t enjoy, and being lost in the 9-5.

We know that you’ve worked hard to get to where you are, from school, college and University to landing your first job in the company you aspired to work with - and you've grown from there!
But perhaps what started out as your dream job no longer feels as good as it once did, or how you imagined it would.

You believe there are things out there that are better suited, that you would love to do, and would feel more.."right". 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.

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.
Inspiration should have no barriers

Together we can be bigger than a series of talks.
Each time you buy a ticket, we make a donation to Kids Up Front to inspire our future generations.

4 tickets sold = 1 inspiring night for a child in need
Kids Up Front provide inspirational experiences to children-in-need through the distribution of donated tickets to arts, recreation and sporting events. Learn More

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’m new to town and want to meet new people.
I’m curious and enjoy learning.
I LOVE networking – you never know who you’ll meet.

Then YES YES YES, Be Inspired Vancouver talks are for you 🙂 See the talk schedule here.

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 Stretch Yoga Studio on East Pender, Downtown Vancouver.
Stretch is an awesome environment for learning something new, and we chose it offer to offer a relaxed and social atmosphere.
A bonus also is it’s location! Less than 10 minutes walk from both Stadium-China Town and Main-Street-Science World Skytrain stations, plus it’s on many major bus routes.
See the schedule here for more information on the venue!

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.
