Let's Talk Day - CanSPEP
CanSPEP Cares: Mental Health, Well-Being
& Social Connections
12:00 - 2:00 EST
January 26th is Bell Let's Talk Day and wow, do we have things to talk about.
The beginning of 2022 marked the start of another year in the pandemic, and we are tired, burnt out, and more. Some of us are questioning our continued interest in the industry. Let's talk!
Join us at noon (Eastern) to hear from two speaker/experts to talk about changing the conversation, elevating our awareness, taking care of ourselves, and the ever-increasing importance of social connections. Each speaker will provide 30 minutes of content, and we will close out the session with an open forum to chat amongst ourselves, and ask questions of our speakers.
If are able to donate, we ask that funds be directed to The GenWell Project: https://genwellproject.org/donate/
Free to attend for CanSPEP Members and Industry Community
Cynthia J. Lamont, MA, C.C.C., Registered Provisional Psychologist
Cynthia is a Provisional Psychologist registered with the College of Alberta Psychologists. I am also a Canadian Certified Counsellor (C.C.C.) and a professional member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. It is my belief that success in counselling is a direct result of mutual respect and collaboration between my clients and myself.
This philosophy of counselling grew from my 20+ years as a meetings and events professional. I have had the honour to serve as the MPI Greater Calgary Chapter President; a RISE AWARD winner at MPI's WEC conference; volunteered on several boards for MPI at an international level; an instructor at Mount Royal University in the meetings and events program. To find success in both the events world as well as in a counselling session, you must thoroughly understand your clients' challenges, strengths and most importantly, goals.

Following a successful career in the beverage alcohol industry, Pete ventured into the world of cause and not-for-profit, by heading up Movember Canada.

Since his departure, Pete has focused on the roll out of his passion project, The GenWell Project.
