STEP INTO YOUR PERSONAL POWER TO LEAD YOURSELF AND OTHERS
LEAD Conference Canada is launching in 2023 with the first-ever event being offered in Saskatchewan.
This is a 2 day, high-energy, high-caliber event with the perfect blend of world-class professional speakers and real-life inspirational stories teaching you practical skills to help you better your life.
This first-of-its-kind experience is brought to you by Corliss Co. Consulting and focuses on personal growth and development empowering you to rediscover yourself as a motivated, inspired, & passionate individual.
No one goes through life without experiencing challenges
Some challenges are caused by things happening outside of you, and some are unresolved matters raging within.
Life can be hard and with uncertainty lurking in every corner, you may be plagued by worry, self-doubt, and fear.
You want answers.
You want certainty.
You want to feel empowered.
You want to LEAD your life.
What you need is a reason to rise up, inspiration to spark hope, connection to others, and a clear "road map" to move forward. LEAD Conference Canada is going to give you that- and so much more!
Underneath we are all the same.
We are more than our titles and roles.
We are more than the things that have happened to us.
We are more than our current reality.
We are human beings with real stories, emotions, and history.
We are real people who go through heartbreak, make mistakes, and suffer silent battles.
We are the leaders in our homes, careers, and communities- whether we realize it or not.
At the core of who we are, we all want to live and LEAD our best lives making a positive impact on everyone around us. But, where do you begin? How can you do that when your own light has been extinguished?
THIS IS WHERE YOU DO IT
Throughout this two-day event, you will experience a process that will help you own your life- past, present, and future.
Who you were, who you are, and who you are yet to be are three different people.
There is another level to you that you haven’t tapped into yet.
Leadership is no longer defined by title or role. It is not just the boss at work, or the person elected to run the country. To LEAD is to influence and that means you are leading because everywhere you are - you have an opportunity to impact those around you.
The choice now, is who do you want to be, and how do you want to influence?
This is a personal development conference and will be a unique experience for every person attending, because every person is unique. Unlike professional development which focuses mostly on developing skills specific to the profession, the LEAD Conference will focus on developing the person who then goes to their profession.
We believe that when you better yourself, every aspect of your life will be better.
With peace in your heart, you will bring more joy to your home and family.
With a shift in your outlook and mindset, you will show up differently in your workplace.
With a renewed sense of self and a clear vision for your life, and who you want to be, you will influence others in a way that makes you proud.
It’s not too late to become the person you want to be

Every one of us will feel stuck at some point in our lives. One day, you recognize that you have followed a path—personal or professional—that suddenly seems closed off or unfulfilling. Whether it’s a relationship that doesn’t connect in the way it used to or a job that started out being exciting but now feels unrewarding, suddenly you look up from your life and realize there is something else you want to do or to be. You’re ready for a reinvention.

YES, I AM!
What if all the traits we’ve been told are negative are actually our greatest strengths? What if we don’t need more or better or different in order to find our purpose and joy? What if we learned to stop chasing the fairytale and, instead, embraced the messy, chaotic adventure. Kristina's personal story will help you stop comparing yourself, lower the volume on your insecurities, and encourage you to be who you were before the world told you who to be.

With Purpose, Anything Is Possible
LEAD Conference Canada Visionary and Host | Inspirational Speaker | Best Selling Author | Podcast Host
Most people will, at some point in their lives, find themselves asking “now what?”, “is this all there is?” and “what is my purpose?” Usually, these questions arise after experiencing life changes, significant crisis, loss, or when autopilot living becomes too unbearable to ignore. Others find themselves in a life they didn’t sign up for and because they don’t know what’s possible, have little belief in themselves, or have forgotten they have the power to change their situation, they settle for less than they want, and deserve. It is said that purpose is an incredible alarm clock because, with purpose, anything is possible- within this keynote, you will wake up to living an intentional and fulfilling life- positively impacting everyone around you, and making yourself proud of who you are and the life you LEAD.

who ARE you?
Human beings have never had access to as much information as we do today. Especially with social media, we can easily access the lives of both celebrities and everyday people alike. But when you ask most people to simply answer: “Who are you?”, they’re stumped. Behind the masquerade that you are hiding behind, is an identity that feels raw and naked and yet holds the key to a life that can be both easy and impactful.
Get ready to be challenged, to laugh, to gasp and maybe even cry a little as Afua walks you through a journey of discovering WHO you are and why she believes it’s the most important aspect of our existence on Earth. During this interactive keynote address, you will: learn to appreciate yourself by separating your core identity from the actions you take daily, identify the sources of the stories we tell ourselves and understand how they shape our reality, recognize that your trauma is in fact, the precursor to current and future triumphs, and gain confidence and clarity on how to live authentically.

Goodbye stress- Hello life!
Are you someone who wants to exist? Or someone who wants to live? To exist is easy. You navigate through life on autopilot and rarely step outside of your comfort zone. As a result, you are never able to reach your full potential.

Drawing from his own experiences, Allan will inspire you to persevere through your personal challenges rather than avoiding or escaping them. You will be encouraged to take an honest look at what lies beneath your stress and be provided with tools to heal through a holistic approach.
The time has come to stop existing and start living for YOU.

Our vision from the first day was to make this kind of personal growth and development experience accessible and affordable for Canadians, which we believe we have done.

When you think about someone who inspires you, you likely think of someone who found the courage and strength to LEAD by example.
Despite the odds.

At LEAD Conference Canada 2023, you will learn through the stories of others. Real people who are just like you. Although their circumstances, backgrounds and story will differ from yours, you will connect to the heart of the message seeing your way forward isn’t so different after all.

Change Your Mind to Change Your Life
Have you settled for less than you want (and deserve)?
Many of you have put your hopes, dreams, and desires on hold because "reality' told you that you had to. You may have bought into the idea that whatever you want isn't possible for you, or because you have so many responsibilities to keep up with, you keep moving yourself to the bottom of the priority list. Maybe you don't even know what you want or who you are anymore.
It may be difficult for you to prioritize yourself and your needs, or perhaps investing in yourself seems frivolous.
But here is the REAL "reality"...
You can’t give what you don’t have.
By investing in yourself you are making an investment in everyone around you, because when you feel good, your energy will spill over into every part of your life. LEAD yourself first and then you can lead in your home, career, and community.
Yes, there is always somewhere else the money could go, but as Warren Buffet (one of the wealthiest men in the world said) the best investment you will ever make is in yourself. The return is priceless.
THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES YOU'LL GET ANOTHER CHANCE.
Give yourself permission to live a full and abundant life!
Are you ready to take the LEAD on your life?
You may have gone looking for answers outside yourself- but that isn't where the answers are.
The answers you seek aren't out there- they are deep within you.
If you are seeking direction, adventure, or another level of you, this is the place to discover it.

THIS WRISTBAND MUST BE WORN AT ALL TIMES TO GET ACCESS TO THE THEATER AND YOU MUST SIT WITHIN THE SECTION YOUR TICKET WAS PURCHASED IN.

READY TO GO!
PLEASE NOTE- THIS IS A CLOSED-DOOR PROGRAM
What does this mean?
The conference agenda is designed with a flow and process. To ensure the experience is positive for every guest, we will close the doors promptly when the program begins and ask guests to remain in their seats (unless its an emergency) until a break or the program ends. With no center aisle in the theater, people moving into and out of seats disturbs other guests so we are asking for consideration that if you feel you can not remain in your seat during the program to choose an end seat. With the goal of our program beginning and ending on time, vendor shopping will be closed at the designated times (approx. 15 minutes before the doors open)
PLEASE BE ADVISED- WE ARE OFFERING RUSH SECTION SEATING
What does this mean?
When you purchase your ticket, you are purchasing your ticket within a section, but not an actual seat. At registration you will receive a colored wristband that, along with your ticket, will give you access to enter the theater, but also will indicate which door you enter and what section you are permitted to choose a seat in. DO NOT remove your wristband from check-in until the end of the conference as replacements will NOT be provided. We have the exact number of seats sold for each section and therefore can not offer any changes or replacements. Which door you enter will be clearly indicated with signs and we recommend you arrive early to choose a seat you like and maybe with the friends you bring along with you too..

You were born to shine- but sometimes things happen that dim your inner light
- let's get that fire burning again!
Just like a candle loses nothing by lighting another, LEAD Conference Canada is a chance to ignite your life- and when you shine, you give others permission to do the same.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
The short answer is anyone who wants to ignite their life.
The diverse speaker lineup offers a wide variety of support and education for every person attending. Personal growth and development is a lifelong journey- it is not for just when you are struggling. Building your "mental muscles", learning from others, and expanding your vision are positive practices at any time in your life. No matter your background, circumstances, or goals for the future, our program is designed to positively impact every person in the room.
Come with an open heart and an open mind.
* SENSITIVE MATERIAL NOTICE-
Some of the material and stories may trigger difficult memories or emotions. Please seek professional support and join us at your own risk.
It all began in 2017...
Just like you, we are evolving.
The original LEAD Conference was geared toward women, was held in a local banquet space, featured local-only speakers, and had 138 people attend. Now, we have secured what we feel is the best venue in the province and are expecting more than 2,000 people to attend making this the largest empowerment conference in Saskatchewan- and perhaps even Canada. We have engaged speakers who align with our mission to make a difference- three of whom are known globally.
Although the conference is taking on a whole new level, and will look different in 2023 than it did when it began, the purpose of why we are doing this hasn't changed at all. After years of being disconnected through the pandemic, our why is stronger than ever.
WE ARE DOING THIS...
- To bring positive, motivated, and like-minded people together to share.
- To fill the room with energy and passion to ignite everyone with more joy and inspiration.
- To create a positive and encouraging space for people to grow.
- To inspire you with tools and inspiration to be, do, and have anything you want in life.
- To arm every person with the training and "how to" support to become a leader in their own lives.
You will leave feeling like you can do anything and with the tools to make it happen!
I AM READY TO LEAD!
