A Recap of The Global ChangeMaker Series!!!
Let’s RECAP....What Happened at The Global ChangeMaker Series™
We were right, Toronto is a city full of CHANGEMAKERS.
On December 13th, 2018 - together with 400 people we embarked on a the world launch of The Global ChangeMaker Series™ at The GlenGould Studio CBC in Toronto....
On November 1, 2018, WE - myself and my CoCreatrors Marcos Mendosaand Nitasha Sarin introduced the city of Toronto an opportunity that would act as a catalyst for global impact and change.
Collectively we gathered resources and support from the community, sponsors, affiliates and charitable partners to produce an experience that would lead to a platform to Speak, Serve & Shine. As you know, the resources you choose are sourced as the value that can help you produce any initiative that you choose to pursue. In our case - this event would not have been as special as it was if it weren't for all those mentioned below.
OUR WHY We had found a hole in society - one that focuses too much of its attention towards the SELF, and instant gratification, as such we wanted to create a platform for Humanity - one that allows people to share their messages towards EMPATHY and the betterment and positive progression of society, based on the inspiration of the original Global Changemakers, such as Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Jane Goodall, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., and Princess Diana to name a few.
THE 6-WEEK LEARNING JOURNEY In order to achieve this mission that we have set out on, we created a unique curriculum that would teach these Changemakers the various lessons that would help them prepare to step on stage and deliver with prowess, intention, and belief in themselves to take on the responsibility of pursuing their dreams, goals, and aspirations to serve the world.
Throughout the journey, 23 participants learned the Art & Science of Leadership and Influence to create their Social Impact Movements. They received hybrid education involving online training, personalized coaching, access to a workshop, and exclusive judging from our keynote judge, Mindvalley University Author & Speaker Academy Founder, Eric Edmeades.
The morning of December 13th, 10 finalists were chosen to Speak, Serve & Shine on their Platform to Soar!
THE EXPERIENCE It was packed house - a Live audience of 400, filled with community, affiliate partners, investors, family & friends all backing with love and power. We had 6 weeks to produce this experience and enroll all these guests into acting as a source of integral support for these Changemakers. If you have ever set a goal so massive and relied on personal initiative, faith, and ambition, then perhaps you could understand the incredible grit involved in producing something of this magnitude.
OPENING CEREMONY Inspired by the Original Global Changemakers: as our opening ceremony began, our audience was inspired by the symbolism of a video that produced and the rest is history in the making.
THE JUDGES The judges playfully & humbly fell into their roles as a team of leaders to guide and advise each participant. They came to their final decisions by deciding on the three winners that would now go on to receive special prizes that will help them catapult their initiatives and create the change that they wish to see in the world. - thank you Eric Edmeades, Andrea Reindl , Rina Rovinelli, Jagger S Gordon, Julian Brass, and James K Erdt.
