Over 200 women came together at the stunning Pipe Shop in North Vancouver on October 26-27 to celebrate and elevate. The Ace Class, based in Calgary hosted the Rise Conference in Vancouver, which included two days of inspirational speakers, curated partners, mentoring workshops, breakout dinners and a dance party!
In a beautiful space with attendees and speakers of all ages and professional backgrounds, we came together to learn, laugh, lean in and grow. Topics covered relationships, money, health + wellness, leadership growth, setting boundaries and rising out of your comfort zone to your true potential.
Key Takeaways from The Rise Conference Vancouver
Top takeaways from the conference that really inspired me, include:
Stillness is Power, Danielle LaPorte
My absolute favourite speaker from the weekend was Danielle LaPorte, entrepreneurial goddess and author of the Firestarter Sessions and the Desire Map. Danielle is powerful beyond measure and has a way of connecting in the deepest and most genuine ways with her audience. My biggest takeaway from her talk was the importance of beginning and ending your day with stillness, whether that be meditation, breath work, or just quieting your mind. Stillness brings power, creativity, calm and expansion. It’s easy to say but hard to form a habit around. We just get so stuck in the busy. But when we bring stillness in our lives, we have the ability to transform.
Connection is Currency, Selina Gray
Selina Gray is a dynamite money boss who helped walk us through how to improve our relationships with money, ourselves and others. After being diagnosed with an auto-immune disease largely brought on my chronic stress and 120 hour weeks working as a CFO for a global company, Selina took personal leadership of her own life and started her own business. She left us awe-inspired by how we can change the stories we tell ourselves about money, including diving deep in to the triggers and habits we have around money.
Stop the Automatic Yes, Terri Cole
Anyone else as guilty of this as I am? I think it comes from a good place but really it’s a block to loving ourselves. You really need to prioritize your bandwidth for yourself. Follow along on Terri’s musings and boundaries bootcamp via her inspiring podcast.
