Communications and Public Speaking CoP: "Living, Laughing, and Loving"

Communications and Public Speaking CoP: "Living, Laughing, and Loving"

Valda will provide an upbeat session on the challenges of trying to find balance in an unbalanced world filled with chaos and uncertainty. She will help us remember:

Living is more than just getting out of bed

Laughing is more than humor. It can be a strategy for improving your life

Loving begins with knowing how to love yourself and then transferring that love to others


Speaker Bio:

Valda Ford has lived a life full of wonder. Coming from very modest beginnings she has defied the odds and traveled to all parts of the globe. From refugee camps across Asia and Africa to executive offices across the USA, Valda has spent her life addressing challenges. Some have involved helping thousands after the tsunami of 2004 that took the lives of one quarter million people in the blink of an eye. Some have helped small non-governmental agencies work out how to provide great programs with limited resources. Many have focused on how to do what you have to do for a successful work life while doing what you need to do for a successful personal life.

Too often we get into the habit of putting work first (and second and last). We give and give and then begin to wonder why we are stressed, sick and suffering from fatigue and depression. We get out of balance because of our desire to help and help some more. There is a way to have it all - to excel at your job while excelling at your life.
