with Ivana Pazek, Transformational coach
Tuesday, Dec 4th, 7pm-9pm

What is truly important for me at my job? When would I be able to say that I feel truly satisfied with what I do? Am I using my innate gifts and talents at my current job? If I did, what would be the right career and right position for me? What would I need to overcome to get there?

These are some of the questions which will be addressed during our Improve Your Job Satisfaction by Maximizing Your Potential workshop!

As creator of Find Your Joy Factor and Live Your Ideal Life courses, and author of the Beyond the Fairytale book series, Ivana helps creative, independent professionals identify their True Calling and discover their unique power and potential in life, relationships, and business. She has also published articles and videos on these topics and is a popular speaker at conferences. When she’s not coaching, working on projects, or finding new ways to live her true calling, you’ll find Ivana spending time with her husband, and doing what she loves: writing, reading, traveling, and working on projects that inspire her.

with Melissa Ngui, Social Entrepreneur & Wellness Consultant
Tuesday, Dec 18th, 7pm-9pm

This session asks the question “As an advanced society, are we valuing the right things as success symbols?”, with the aim of illustrating why wellness is critical to success. We explore the idea of reducing toxins both in the products we use and in our states of minds.

Firstly, participants are expected to complete a mini checklist of how conscious they are of the many things that deplete their energy in their daily lives. Examples and stats are given to illustrate how many advancements in today’s society are subconsciously negatively affecting our state of mind. Then, a parallel is drawn between developed and underdeveloped communities to compare and contrast the differences between incomes but similarities in negative health outcomes. Next, we look at how the head, heart, and gut work together to support healthy emotional and mental states and how this is being negative affected by today’s fast paced modern society. The emphasis is on “modern” and “advanced” and how these developments are ironically working to suppress healthy states. Finally, practical tools are provided to help reset and bring the body back to balance to promote sustainable wellness and support ongoing success. The workshop concludes by giving a practical approach to maintaining wellness in our daily lives.

Melissa Ngui is a brand strategist and social entrepreneur with 14 years brand management and product development experience having managed international brands such as L’Oreal, Maybelline, Garnier. Her passion for using business to solve social issues has allowed her to work on projects in USA, LATAM, India, Kenya and China. In 2015, she left corporate life to pursue projects that empower marginalized groups through financial and mobile connectivity. She then founded a boutique consulting company providing brand strategy to social enterprises and coaching professional women to set up and run purposeful businesses. Most recently, she has partnered with Doterra as a wellness advocate because she has an avid interest in natural medicine and holistic health after visiting many poverty stricken communities that suffer from disease. Melissa holds an MBA (with a focus on Social Entrepreneurship) from Hult International School of Business and is currently pursuing a Diploma in Aromatherapy and Natural Medicine. She hopes to use her professional experience to empower women to use business to improve their circumstances, and to find natural solutions to support their health.
