Secrets of Being Highly Productive and Happy

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 20, 2010) - On Thursday May 6th, the Women In Leadership Foundation (WIL) will be hosting its 5th Annual BC Women in Business Luncheon: Secrets of Being Highly Productive and Happy, from 11am – 1:30pm, at Hycroft.

"There is a myth that because of better education, better jobs and better pay, women today are happier and more fulfilled than they were forty years ago. Citing 'Find Your Strongest Life' by Marcus Buckingham, the opposite is true. Surveys of more than 1.3 million men and women reveal that women today are less happy relative to where they were forty years ago, and relative to men. Women in Leadership Foundation selected a group of high productive women and happy women to find out what their secrets were." -Maya Kanigan, President and Founder, Women in Leadership Foundation

The luncheon, presented by TD Bank Financial Group, is WIL's women's business highlight of the year. The BC Event is part of a National Spotlight Speaker Series that showcases female role models in business and fosters the expansion of networks. The Speaker Series is held in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and for the time this year in Calgary. Prominent and inspirational women will share their journeys of success, practical tips and inspiration. Funds raised will benefit the Women in Leadership Mentorship program.


Rita Rogers, Senior Manager, Canucks Sports & Entertainment, will be moderating the panel focusing on each woman's personal journey of success, how she overcame obstacles in her life to be successful in business and happy in life. The panel will discuss practical tips and provide inspirational stories.
