About the speaker
Join us on Friday, May 25 for our BIG BIRTHDAY BONANZA at the beautiful TwentyTwo (22nd floor of the Westin Hotel) for this month’s talk on commitment! We’re excited to welcome friend of CreativeMornings Ottawa, Tania Carrière to the stage as this month’s speaker!
For Tania, travel changed everything. Having journeyed to over 75 countries (and counting!), she learned to step beyond the script of “who I know myself to be” into the possibility of “who do I dare to be now”? No longer surrounded by the markers of everyday life, she steps beyond her comfort zone and is inspired by humanity’s potential for compassion and change. Her adventures have led to a different kind of souvenir collection — life lessons and commitments that guide and shape her life, her career and her relationships to this day.
Tania is an executive coach and leadership consultant for her own firm, Advivum. For over 25 years she has focused on developing strong leadership capacity in individuals and organizations who believe in their potential to effect real, meaningful change.
A partnership between Photographer/Director John Kealey and Multidisciplinary Designer/Director Kyle Megill, no hands is a creative multidisciplinary team focused on the art of storytelling through video.

About the theme:
A commitment is a promise to show up whether you’re having a good or bad day.
It’s a behavior and mindset that signifies the posture of a professional. It’s about saying yes with your whole heart.
A creative life is built on the commitments you make to projects and people. It can feel like a leap of faith. But is that not the very essence of leading a creative life?
