Pension, Passion and Purpose

Maybe you are happily fully retired, maybe you participate in the traditional workforce or maybe you are an entrepreneur! Whatever your current path or desire, Monica will take you on a magical roller coaster ride to explore the potential of the latest chapter in your life. Monica is an OLDERpreneur, university lecturer and grandmother living her dream out on Gabriola Island, BC. In this presentation, Monica will focus on the reality of age discrimination, and then through a combination of music, dance and laughter, she will indicate how she shattered stereotypes and obstacles to turn her vision into reality. She gives 10 indicators of how pension, passion and purpose guide older adults and seniors to thrive. This is the most exciting time of our lives as we now dance to the beat of our own drums!

Your ticket includes an inspiring keynote presentation to kick-start the day, refreshments throughout the day, a hot catered lunch, door prizes and access to information booths from various organizations and services. The afternoon allows the opportunity to attend one of the following four* breakout sessions: “Having the Time of Our Lives: A Session on Time Management” (Monica Knight), “Nutrition for Adults and Older Adults” (Andrea Shackel, The Primary Care Network), “What is Leduc Adult Learning?” (Denise Magis, The Leduc Adult Learning Centre) and “Vision Loss: What Can We Do About It?” (Merico Tesolin, Canadian National Institute for the Blind).
