Water Cooler Conversations with Cate

Previously, when most were working out of an office, “water cooler talk” helped employees relax and get to know their colleagues in a more personal way. And at Luminary, being able to walk into the kitchen and casually start up a conversation with another member as you fill up your water bottle, was an amazing way to get to know others. Now that we're working remotely, it can be hard to connect with other members. Bring your lunch and join Cate, Founder and CEO of Luminary and other Luminary members for an informal discussion for members to connect and converse!

Writing for Discovery, Writing from the Heart. Writing for Compassion

We are not alone, there is a tension and drama in writing that people will respond to from their own lives. Writing helps you to discover, reflectively record and observe. We all have stories, and especially during this special time, many are aching to express. Writing brings out all kinds of things that may surprise you. Writing for expression is not so much about the craft of writing, but to connect with others and allow for catharsis. In this workshop join Luminary Member, Debbie Maiocco, where we will have short writing prompts and then read to each other and share, or just listen. The sense of community and catharsis will leave you with a sense of oneness with others.

Your Story NOW!

A concise and relevant story is a powerful tool to create connection with your community and clients. No doubt that we may each have a collection of stories that we have used in the past for workshops, talks, website copy, and social media. BUT WHAT IS THE STORY THAT MAKES SENSE NOW? In the midst of a GLOBAL PANDEMIC, what is the story that is going to resonate the most and cut through all the digital noise? In this talk, Debra will share both a powerful framework to uncover your "Story of NOW" and also how to then share that story courageously!

Personal Brand Alignment Workshop

Personal Brand Alignment is strategic communication and business development for the self -- showing up as the best version of yourself and well-positioned to get paid to do the work you want to do. The concept of a personal brand is a little uncomfortable for most of us. Writing our own bio is hard, let alone replacing unproductive narratives around our professional identities. However this work is essential for self-actualization. In this workshop, Luminary member and business and brand strategist Janna Meyrowitz Turner will lead you through a series of perspective-shifting exercises to help you weave together the tapestry of everything you are and everything you’ve done in order to move forward.

RSVP

October 8, 2020 from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Mighty Wish Roundtable

Do you wish that your dreams could come true? The Mighty Wish Roundtable can support you in gaining traction in realizing them! A wish becomes a goal when there is an investment of consistent action driving it. Too often wishes are made at special occasions like birthdays or at the start of a new year and then secretly locked away. The Mighty Wish Roundtable will expose them! This is a collaborative hour in which participants expose their wishes and goals and inspire one another to manifest, validate, and bring them to life. It is a motivational circle of women supporting one another in setting goals/wishes that align with the moment, and inspiring them to self-lead in building them out. Attendees will leave the roundtable uplifted and encouraged, with a sharper vision, and the tenacity and elevated energy to take action on the choices and possibilities at hand. Together we will create wishes that stick!

RSVP
