ILEA - Inspire Resilience, Empower Possibility

When:  Jun 24, 2020 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM (MT)
Associated with  Calgary Chapter


It is hard to believe that the 2019/2020 chapter year is coming to an end. It has been a very unusual and challenging year for our chapter and our industry. None of us could have predicted we'd be spending the last four months of our chapter year in quarantine, forced to social distance due to the coronavirus. We've had to make a lot of adjustments to our lives, including the way we offer events. While going virtual is not how we expected to bring you our year end event, we are excited we still have an opportunity to do so and we know it will be great!  

Join the ILEA Calgary Chapter alongside our Title Sponsor Duuo Insurance on Wednesday, June 24th from the comfort of your own home, backyard, balcony, park down the street (safely), where ever you feel comfortable as we bring our chapter year to a close. We are excited to have acclaimed filmmaker and keynote speaker Brett Culp join us for a conversation.

In this interactive session, Inspire Resilience, Empower Possibility, Brett Culp will discuss his inspiring perspective on leadership and achievement in an ever-changing world. You will learn how to see change as an opportunity for innovation and impact. This uplifting presentation will empower and equip you to face your fears about change and move forward with confidence and optimism. 


 *Please note, the event link will be emailed out to you a few days prior to the event.

Brett's Bio:

Brett Culp inspires audiences to engage in a passionate, meaningful mission that leaves a positive impact and ignites the heroic spirit. He is an acclaimed filmmaker, social entrepreneur, and keynote speaker whose work has inspired audiences around the world. His films have been featured on Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.

Rather than thinking as a traditional filmmaker, his projects are collaborative efforts, pulling diverse groups of people into dialogue and ultimately leading to stronger communities and greater impact. Brett has developed an expertise for creating 'mini-movements' that inspire the heroic spirit.

Brett delivers 50 keynotes each year across the U.S. to a wide variety of organizations and industries. His high speeches are filled with touching moments, extraordinary film making stories, humor, and insights about developing rewarding relationships through generosity and authenticity.

Brett has been featured in USA Today, Entertainment Tonight, WIRED, The LA Times, The Hollywood Reporter, Lifetime, and many more. The newest edition of the college textbook “Documentary Storytelling” devotes an entire chapter to Brett’s production style.

Brett is the co-founder of The Rising Heroes Project, a 501c3 that supports charitable organizations and empowers community leaders.
