On October 3, 2012 VancouverMom.ca joined forced with Modern Mama and Entrepreneur Mom Now Vancouver to present Leading Moms. It was a day of inspiration, featuring moms who are making a difference in the arts, fashion, culture, business, science, media, politics and a whole lot of other areas. We saw talks, videos, musical performances and fashion show. We ate breakfast inside, and we ate lunch outside in the sunshine. We were energized and motivated by what we saw.
Videos from Leading Moms
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. 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 missed it, you’ll want to check out our first video featuring Pamela Martin, who served as our MC, and our very own Christine Pilkington, as they kicked off the day. Check that out at Leading Moms: Kicking it Off.
Today we’re excited to share the opening keynote from Premier Christy Clark. Leaving politics aside – because VancouverMom.ca is entirely non-partisan – we were excited to hear from a woman who is both a single mother and the province’s Chief Executive Officer. Whether you love or loathe the Premier, we believe you’ll see an entirely different side of her in this video. It’s worth taking the time to watch, to gain a unique perspective from an accomplished leader, who is also a whole lot funnier than we ever would have expected.
