Congratulations to Sarah F! This contest is now closed.

A very powerful event is coming to the Fraser Valley this April.

The Defying Expectations conference is coming to Surrey on April 15, 2011 from 8:30am – 4:30pm. The organizers are inviting you to a thought-changing day for women who are ready to take leadership in their lives to exceed limiting beliefs to shape communities, families and individual success. Designed for ‘women of influence’, this conference encourages women to decide who they will be, what limits they will defy and learn how to turn those choices into daily action.

The dynamic speakers line-up includes The Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean Former Governor General of Canada, Current United Nations Ambassador to Haiti and Joannie Rochette – Canadian Figure Skater, 6 time Canadian Champion and Bronze medalist at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, as well as Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts and Patricia Graham, Editor in Chief for the Vancouver Sun! Wow!

    a woman of distinguished courage or ability, admired for her brave deeds and noble qualities.

    It is wonderful to see so many who will be speaking and so many that will show up to watch to be part of the event.

  21. Leanne says:

    Wow, what an incredible opportunity! I cannot think of a better place to be than to be amongst a group of amazing, inspiring and driven women. As I happen to create paintings that “pay a toast” to the empowerment of women, my creativity is most intense from the experience and energy of hearing their powerful stories. And from such creativity, it is always my honor to give it back. FVP, whoever is lucky to receive this should be acknowledging and grateful for your generous contribution. If given the opportunity, I would also look forward to the creative energy after the experience so that I can transfer it to canvas.. and share it with many!

  22. This is a tremendous event with an awesome line up of speakers. Get motivated just reading. GREGORY
