Join us on May 9th for our 7th annual signature storytelling event this year. The theme this year is Lollipop Moments: Stories of impact and little leadership moments.

What are Lollipop Moments?

They are those little moments in our careers where we have inspired, supported or led others sometimes without knowing the impact we have had. Or, we were the ones who were changed by little events that happened which inspired us to go in a different direction.

We might not even recognize lollipop moments when they are happening or know that they happened at all. Until ten years later when you are in the line-up for the washroom at a concert and a stranger will call out your name and remind you that you trained them once upon a time, ten + years ago. They will tell you that they never forgot you because you taught them something important and it changed their career trajectory. Or, they were in one of your classes at university and when you always put your hand up to offer an opinion it inspired them to be a little braver, to speak a little bit louder.

Maybe you remember someone like that, a person early in your career who inspired you or impacted you in some way or it could have happened to you in the past few months. Little things that people say and do can have a profound impact on us, and little events that appear insignificant at the time can add up to big events that have an impact on who you are and what you do.

It’s the little moments where leadership slips through the cracks, past the hierarchies and simply happens or we inspire someone just by being us. The lollipop moments. We can all be leaders if we just have a little faith in our own abilities and recognize the ways that little moments can impact us positively in the long run.

On Thursday May 9, please join us to hear these sometimes surprising, often inspiring and always entertaining stories of lollipop moments from your fellow communicators.

See you soon.
