About this Event

It’s no secret that modern life is demanding. How do you hold the big picture while responding to the urgency of every day? How do you advance your career and deepen your relationships without losing sight of your own needs? How can you shift your time, energy and actions to feed and fuel what matters most? 

You can’t have it all, but you can have all that matters.

The question is, do you know what really you? 

The world’s most innovative companies use creative briefs to get clear about who they are and what they believe, so that they can make fast decisions and take bold action from a place of unwavering clarity. The Life Brief helps you do the same for your life. 

In 2010, Bonnie Wan, Partner and Head of Brand Strategy at Goodby Silverstein & Partners, created The Life Brief during a crisis of meaning. Confronted by unbearable questions about her marriage and her work, Bonnie’s instincts as a strategist kicked in and she wrote a creative brief for her life. Cutting through the mental noise, she got brutally clear about what matters (and what doesn’t) her relationships; in her work; and for herself. The resulting Life Brief not only saved her marriage and accelerated her career, but also kicked off a series of family adventures filled with unexpected twists and unforgettable gifts. What was once unimaginable eventually became inevitable. 

Join us for this talk where Bonnie will share her personal story; why The Life Brief matters; and how it can work for you.
