And for the first time participating and presenting at a break-out session (“Failure: A gift in Disguise”), I was curious to find out why.
So with my (big) observing eyes, this is what I saw:
I saw hands touching each other, connecting and opening to new friendships and new collaborations.
I saw people deeply touched when hearing about dealing with failing.
I saw wet eyes of women who felt like survivors, and not like failures, women who said that this was exactly where they wanted to be and what they wanted to hear at this point of their life.
I saw people inspiring others on how to nurture body, mind and soul, because that brings balance also to our career.
I saw women with a desire to expand, to flourish, to fight, to change by being themselves and not being afraid to risk, to fail, to experiment, to succeed.
I saw passionate women, giving the best of their skills and their potential within their business, and still making a commitment in front of all the others “to do even more”.
I saw an amazing event, very well organised, and full of interesting people, but what will be kept inside me for a long time will be the moment I realized there is a way to motivate and inspire people, the moment you least expect it and in the most surprising way.
Yes. I agree. That was not just a conference. That was a tsunami of inspiration, motivation and passion, that flooded our souls.
Thank you, SPARK 2016, for this expanding wave!
