Had a very satisfying experience this morning presenting to the Alberta Continuing Care Association annual conference.
Had to give my presentation twice which was taxing, but fulfilling. There is still a place for telling the stories of advocating for our Elders.
Very kind audience, many of whom approached me afterwards to tell me that they had bought or planned to buy my book. I was very encouraged by the broad range of responses and their affirmation.
It was gratifying to fulfill the Foundation commitment to “inspire peers”!
I am excited and thrilled to share that my book is finally published!
Throughout this project I have been honoured to have the support of family and friends and I am especially grateful for the efforts of my son Jim, who made it happen!
In the coming weeks and months we will be promoting the book and The Christie Gardens Foundation — in the meantime I would very much appreciate if you could buy, submit a review, and share with your networks.
A portion of the proceeds goes to the Foundation, and we would love for this to be a great success!
I wanted to share that I am speaking at the iQ 2019 conference later this week, in Red Deer Alberta. This year’s conference is titled “Catch the Wave!” — their goal is to inspire and motivate attendees.
Naturally, I’m a perfect fit!
I was selected to speak on my favourite subject: changing the culture of care for our most vulnerable citizens.
While there I will be promoting my book “Joyful Journey: An Adventure in Elder Care” and The Christie Gardens Foundation, wish me luck!
