Set Intentions instead of Resolutions for 2018! ~Workshop @ Joy Hair Salon
Jan 31 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Instead of resolutions, set Intentions this year.

You know when you reach the end of your day and you feel like that day just ‘happened’ to you? Most of us go through our day without consciously thinking as to what we would like to receive from our day. Deliberate intention setting can make all the difference in your day and ultimately in achieving your goals and dreams.

Let’s face it, when it comes to resolutions, most of us bend/break them within a few weeks. Intentions are not those “do or die” resolutions or goals; they focus on the big picture. Don’t set yourself up for failure by making super specific resolutions, instead, make your intentions part of an overall mindset.

Would you like to learn how to set powerful intentions? And then transfer those intentions to a vision board to remind you thoughout the year? Everything that happens in our world starts with our intention. It’s the creative power put forth by you that fulfills your desires in every area of your life, including money, relationship, spirituality and love. We really DO have more control over our destiny than we might think.

Join us as we learn how to set powerful intentions and create our vision for 2018.

Please bring magazines and scissors. All other materials and refreshments are provided..

Increasing Trust, Reputation and your Brand through Privacy Management @ The offices of Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP
Feb 6 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Increasing Trust, Reputation and your Brand through Privacy Management @ The offices of Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP | Vancouver | British Columbia | Canada

Privacy is all around us. What does Yahoo, Equifax and Heathrow Airport have in common? They could have managed privacy a bit better. Did you know that the cost of a data breach in Canada was $278 per record in 2016? Are you aware that there has been a 2,500% increase in sales of ransomware just in 2017?

In a hyper connected world where data insight gives organizations a competitive edge, the risks of managing and safeguarding that data – specifically personal data – have increased exponentially. How then, as business management professionals, can we influence the importance of privacy and security management while at the same time we become enablers of innovative business models?

Join us for this event where we will explore the opportunities that lie ahead in terms of increasing trust, reputation and brand exposure through the compliant management of Private information.
