For Your Consideration; from intention to creation, the path of positive change.

Stories of process, motivation, inspiration, influence, observation, challenge and accomplishment in personal and/or professional life that contribute to the creation of positive change in our local communities, culture and environment.

Join us for a casual, fun gathering of "thinking and drinking", and sharing stories in a dynamic and engaging format that fuels inspiration and connectivity.

This is a great opportunity to get out from behind your screen and get to a live event, with real people, real communication, real beer, and real creative fun. Come enjoy a “real” social network.

Designing Personal Sustainability

@ VOL 3 ON JAN 30, 2016

“When I first started, I became busy so quickly but I learned busy doesn't mean happy. I had no time to do the creative work I had been hired to do, let alone any personal projects, volunteer work or on some days even eat or sleep. People told me oh you're busy that's so great! but this kind of busy was making me miserable.”

In Designing Personal Sustainability from PechaKucha Night Nanaimo’s 3rd Volume Speaker Lisa Hemingway talks us through her journey of applying principles of sustainability into her personal life. A collaborative creative consultant with a focus on sustainable design, she provides useful advice in how to sustain yourself when you work on your own. After all, when you're your own boss, your most important employee is yourself.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, February 24th, 2016.
