CreativeMornings/Vancouver Presents Brett Gajda Live
June 16, 2015
Presented in partnership with HCMA Architecture + Design, TILT, and CreativeMornings/Vancouver, with support from GDC, CAPIC and Nicli Antica Pizzeria.
Brett Gajda, the writer and host of the popular podcast “Where There’s Smoke”, will be in Vancouver on June 23rd to give a thought-provoking, engaging and inspiring presentation to creative professionals.
In his talk, Brett will be discussing the realities, challenges and opportunities created by the changing landscape of the creative professions, including how the application of control and focus can be used to adapt and thrive. He’ll also explore the role of personal connection to meaning (purpose) plays in a creative career and how we can live the life we want to live. Brett will address the self doubt and fear that many creative professionals experience as they face a changing market and provide insights into how we can tap into courage and vulnerability, leaving attendees feeling inspired.
After the presentation there will be Q&A and an engaging group discussion with likeminded creative professionals.
If this description isn’t enough, here is Brett’s bio:

Brett has launched two multi-million dollar businesses, and studied with some of the leading personal and professional development teachers in the world. All the while experiencing the broad spectrum of life as a world traveler, entrepreneur, artist, athlete, husband, father, and student of new ideas.
Since 2003, Brett has combined his business and life experience, with a powerful understanding of human psychology and business philosophy, to inspire and empower clients to raise their culture and performance to new heights.

With Where There’s Smoke, Brett feels like he might finally be living up to the honor bestowed on him by his high school graduating class – “Most likely to replace Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show.” After living in San Francisco for 18 years, Brett recently re-located to his hometown of Toronto, Canada.
