On October 3, 2012 VancouverMom.ca teamed up with our friends at Modern Mama and Entrepreneur Mom Now Vancouver to present Leading Moms. The day was full of inspiration, as we highlighted moms who are difference-makers in a variety of fields, from fashion to politics to business to the arts to science, and a whole lot more. We were treated to talks, videos, musical performances and a fashion show. We ate breakfast inside the H.R. MacMillan Science Centre, and we ate lunch outside in the sunshine. We were energized and motivated by the whole experience. Meet Leading Moms speaker, Gurdeep Stephens.

If you weren’t able to make it to Leading Moms, we’d like to share some of the day with you to give you a taste of what happened. We think it will convince you to attend the next event, for sure. Over the next few months, we’ll be sharing a video every other week. Check back regularly to re-live the most inspiring moments of the day, or to see it for the first time. If you haven’t seen them, you’ll want to check out our other videos:
Gurdeep Stephens was not one of the planned presenters at Leading Moms. However, when her own mother Ratana Stephens wrapped up her presentation with a few minutes to share, she asked Gurdeep to sing for us. Gurdeep rose to the challenge and then some, in this spontaneous performance that we all enjoyed immensely. We think you will too, when you see it.
