9:15 amOpening Session: Living on the Other Side of Imagination

Dr. Shirley Davis, author, speaker and certified life coach

Are you living the life that you always imagined? Are you living your best life now? If the answer is “no,” join the 90% of those who admit that if they got to live life over again, they would live it differently—with more passion, intention, purpose and productivity. In fact, research reveals that when we are living life in this way, we are happier, healthier, more productive and come up with better solutions. So what keeps us stuck in a rut, a routine, and comfortable with the status quo?

What’s the secret sauce used by those who are living on the other side of imagination?

In this presentation, Dr. Davis will guide you through steps and strategies for how to make bold and courageous moves, how to conquer paralyzing fears and the stigma of failure, and how to navigate the winds of uncertainty. She will outline the key elements of how she made her dreams and imaginations a reality and today is living her best life. You will learn how to do the same through the art of creative and strategic thinking, goal setting, life mapping and reinvention. You will leave inspired and empowered to begin your journey of living on the other side of imagination
