Thought Leader Dinner at The Corner Stop on June 6th - Living Your Best Life!

A campaign by Fortua Events

Thought Leader Dinner at The Corner Stop on June 6th - Living Your Best Life!

Do you feel that there is not enough time in the day? 


Do you wish you had more time to exercise? To eat healthier foods? To do the things you love to do?


Do you wish you had more time for yourself? More time with your family? More time with your friends? More time with your significant other? More time to get things done?


Are you a busy mom or dad feeling pulled in too many directions? 


If you answered “yes” to any of these questions you are not alone. 


Collectively, we are working longer hours and at a faster pace than ever before, and yet we never seem to feel caught up. We have more tools and technologies to help us manage work and life than ever before, and yet we still feel like we are behind. We know more about the benefits of exercise, sleep, and healthy living than any other generation, and yet we feel more stressed and chronically under-healthy than ever.


How did we get here? And what can we do about it? 


For our second Thought Leader Dinner at The Corner Stop Eatery on Tuesday, June 6th, we’ll be exploring these topics with two experts in health, wellness, time management, and productivity: Debbie Lyn Toomey and Linda Stacy


Debbie and Linda bring 20+ years experience as authors, speakers, and instructors helping people to achieve their best – to be their best selves at work, at home, and at play.


In this interactive session, Debbie and Linda will share key strategies and insights for living the life that you want to live -- a life with more fulfillment, less stress, increased personal freedom and empowerment, and greater well-being. The insights you acquire will be valuable for you and your kids. You’ll enjoy dinner and drinks, listen to an engaging talk by our two thought leaders, and you'll also have the opportunity to ask them questions throughout the evening.


Make it a date night, invite a friend, or come on your own! It's going to be a fun and meaningful evening out. You can purchase tickets through this page, and on a first-come-first serve basis. We will not be selling tickets at the door.

FEATURED SPEAKERS


Linda Stacy

Linda is a productivity consultant, trainer, and coach who helps busy professionals and people take strategic control of time and energy so that they get the right and most important things done. Let’s face it, in today's fast-paced work and home environments, the constant demand on our attention & energy leaves the best of us overextended and often overwhelmed. Competing priorities can make it difficult to stay focused and on task.


Overwhelming and competing priorities impact us at home and at the workplace. According to a 2014 report from Deloitte, 65% of executives feel that overwhelm is an issue for their organizations and the estimated financial impact to a mid-size company is $10M per year. Gallup estimates that only 29% of the American workforce is engaged, connected, and inspired by their work, and the estimated result of poor engagement costs companies $450-550 billion per year, and leads workers to feel unfulfilled, unsatisfied, and uninspired. This needs to change at work and at home.


Linda teaches a system and principles to reduce overwhelm and increase fulfillment and performance by up to 30% for individuals and organizations. Linda designs and develops her teaching principles based on her tenure as a busy professional in the management consulting industry, an entrepreneur, and on years of research and training.


Linda has 20 years of professional training experience in academic and corporate settings. She has taught her productivity principles to participants at professional association conferences, within corporate offices, at corporate retreats, and within public workshops. Linda blogs and writes articles on the subject of productivity and how to use key skills to stay on task and increase fulfillment in all aspects of life. In 2015, she wrote her first book, The Whole Package Professional: The Definitive Guide to Productivity, Success, and Fulfillment in Business and Life.


In addition to a B.A. in Biological Sciences and an M.S. in Library Science, Linda holds Bob Pike Group certifications in Instructional Design for Participant-Centered Training and Presentation Skills for Professionals. Linda is a proud member of the National Speaker Association (currently co-chairing the New England chapter’s Aspiring Speakers Program) and the National Association of Professional Organizers.
