Give me a break! Hugh Culver coming to the Lake

Culver provides answers to how to balance work and social life

We are working in a time of distraction where endless emails, back-to-back meetings, interruptions, and growing work demands are taking their toll.

People are constantly rushing, multi-tasking, bringing work home and struggling to find time for themselves and their family.

Sound familiar? On Wednesday, Nov. 2 Hugh Culver will give you answers to the questions of how to balance your work and still have a life.

The Phoenix Foundation of the Boundary Communities is pleased to host its annual community social where Culver will give his presentation.

Based on his new book, Give Me a Break, The art of making time work for you, Culver’s presentation holds an essential message for anyone who has a to-do list that never seems to end and is tired of always being busy.

With his unique, high-energy approach and proven insights, Culver will show you how to move away from running late and towards more effectiveness, better health, improved relationships, and – yes – even greater happiness.

Culver is an internationally renowned speaker who knows what he’s talking about. His business enterprises have included creating the world’s most exclusive adventure tours, operating a private airline in Southern Chile, pioneering eco-whale watching and teaching as a university professor.

His adventure exploits have taken him from the Arctic to the Antarctic, from mountain peaks to whitewater rapids and even included golfing at the North Pole.

Hugh’s insights and writings on personal leadership are sought after by leading organizations, including: Imperial Oil, Shoppers Drug Mart, Royal Bank of Canada, Investors Group, Western Union, Suncor, Telus, United Way, and the Red Cross.

This year Culver released Give Me a Break, The art of making time work for you. He will have some copies of the book at the presentation for people to purchase but just coming out will give you the chance to see where you can make some changes for the better.

The Phoenix Foundation hosts an annual social for community members to learn more about the foundation’s work.

There will be displays from community groups who have benefited from grants the foundation offers, refreshments, and opportunities to network.

All funds raised at the event go towards the Phoenix Foundation. Co-sponsors for this year’s event are: Community Futures Boundary, Regional Area C Director Grace McGregor and Hugh Culver.

Come out Wednesday, Nov. 2 at the Christina Lake Community Hall to hear how you can change your life.

Tickets for the presentation are $10 and are available at Thistle Pot Gifts in Grand Forks and Huckleberry Market in Christina Lake.
