On the evening of Thursday November 22, 2012, business leader John Mozas, President & COO, Medcan Clinic and Hollywood actor, Enrico Colantoni, lead actor on the hit show Flashpoint, shared their advice to the next generation at St. Michael's College at the University of Toronto for INSPIRE-UofT (St. Michael's College).

This event saw about 100 students enjoy over two hours of stories and advice from both Mozas and Colantoni who have focused balancing career success with true happiness.

Mozas shared that it was his hunger to do something of impact that led him to the Medcan Clinic. "After my first job, I wasn't feeling like I was doing the most that I could," he said.

Colantoni echoed sentiments of Mozas' advice saying, "No matter where we come from or where we are, we naturally search for balance. We look for our true north, happiness." He followed up with, "If you're always pursuing your true north, your direction is always going to change and you'll continue to chase it."

The dedicated sponsors St. Michael's College, Student initiative Fund, Hart House Good Ideas Fund, Carino Digital, Astley Gilbert, Ferrero Canada and Molisana along with the hard work of the INSPIRE-UofT (St. Michael's College) student committee led by Barbara Marzario and coached by INSPIRE steering committee member Gianni Creta helped make this event a success.

"The St. Michael's College students truly connected and engaged with our speakers during and after the event which makes me confident of our success," said Barbara Marzario, INSPIRE-UofT (St. Michael's College) student leader.

Luciano Volpe, co-Founder and Chair of INSPIRE, is proud of the success of the student committee and the dedication of the entire INSPIRE team including the advisory committee, steering committee and junior steering committee.
