Discover your purpose and learn promote it. What’s your why, and how do you share your personal message with others?

In this unique one day course at the UPEACE campus in Costa Rica you will be pushed and guided to articulate your PURPOSE and WHY. Together we’ll help form a personal statement that can guide your personal branding, given you a written and verbal ‘pitch’ to share with the world.

At this course you will build, practice and refine your own professional story telling around your WHY and PURPOSE.  The results will be key for your LinkedIn profile, your resumé, introducing yourself at conferences and events, your elevator pitch, your next job interview, your start-up pitch for investors, or even your next TED talk!

We believe in Simon Sinek’s famous message that a clear why is at the heart of personal and organization changemaking.  If you can present yourself and your organizational goals from the heart, with clear purpose, you can garner support and inspire those around you. If you are aware of your strengths and talents, are able to cultivate a culture of compassion and working from a your purpose and why you are in a Happiness Sweet Spot.
