at the Black Fin Pub (lower level)

Reinvention is a constant.  Whether we instigate or react to the need to reconfigure, redefine, or rethink in various life situations, every situation is an opportunity to reinvent our search for personal, professional, or business excellence.

  • Do you have the necessary confidence to address the need for reinvention?
  • Do you have a 'GPS attitude' to keep you moving toward your goal?
  • Have you adopted the ‘TLC Principle’ that allows you to thoughtfully consider your options?

Rosemarie Barnes, Confidant Stages, of Ladysmith, BC, will explain how these two systems can assist you in navigating through disruption and growth.

Rosemarie will also be presenting a 3-hour workshop on 'Confidently Speaking' on Thursday, November 15th at the Kingfisher Oceanside Resort.  Tickets for this special fundraising event, supporting Soroptimist International of Courtenay, may be purchased on Eventbrite.
