CAPS BC Members Summer Social on Saturday, July 22

Graciously hosted by Tom and Kathy Watson, a CAPS afternoon/evening social event offering a beautiful outdoor setting with gardens, a putting green and space to enjoy the company of CAPS members and their partners.

Hotdogs and hamburgers will be on hand, should you prefer you may bring your own protein to barbeque.

This event is potluck-style, so bring something with you. Some ideas are:

– Salad

– Veggies & dip

– Other finger food

– Chips

– Vegetarian options

– Dessert

– BOB (bring your own beverage)

Our very generous hosts will supply adult libations and mixers.  And of course…drink responsibly, have a game plan and bring a designated driver.

As a bonus, our CAPS National President, Lorne Kelton, will be joining us.

Lorne Kelton, M.Ed.

Lorne Kelton is president of ThinkShift Performance Solutions Inc., a boutique consulting firm where he works with individuals and organizations to develop their Critical Thinking and Behavioural Leadership skills.

He is the author of several books on personal and professional development, including IFRAME: A Manager’s Guide to Critically Balanced Thinking. When not on the platform, Lorne can usually be found performing in film or theatre projects or working as a producer of independent film productions.

Lorne currently serves as national president of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers (CAPS), where he has been a member for over 20 years. He was previously president of the CAPS Foundation and has served as president of the BC chapter of CAPS.

Lorne will be presenting:

Talk is Cheap: The Expertise Imperative

Our job on the platform is not to tell our audience how to think but rather to give them questions to think upon. Your value as a speaker rests in your ability to deliver actionable ideas through a combination of effective storytelling and stagecraft. If you are not painting vibrant mental pictures or slaughtering sacred cows, then you will quickly fade from memory. By converting your words into a multi-sensory experience, you will evoke the emotional responses necessary to unleash your expertise.

>>>> Instead of a ticket fee, we are using this as a fundraiser for the CAPS Foundation to support CAPS Members in need. Please make a donation of $20 per person here or bring $20 per person with you and we will collect it at the event. Thank you for helping us celebrate each other and supporting such a great cause.

We need everyone attending to RSVP so our hosts know how many people to expect.

** This is a MEMBERS ONLY event **

Members in good standing are welcome to join us with their spouse / partner / special person.
