Innsbrook Table Talks: Work-Life Design with Vernon Brown

 

Our next Innsbrook Table Talks event is Thursday, March 15, featuring professional speaker and life coach, Vernon Brown.  Vernon will lead the vital conversation about a subject which has recently drawn a great deal of attention.  How can corporate America create a corporate culture that is tailored to the needs of their most important natural resource, people? “Work-Life Design: Creative and Fun Work-Life Designing” will explore what young professionals, and really all professionals, are striving to accomplish in their personal and professional lives.  The real question is… Do you know what makes your team “happi?” Creating an environment that is conducive to productivity and creativity is the critical piece that will define every company’s brand.

Meet Our Speaker

Vernon Brown is a happiness and success coach who has helped more than 10,000 people turn happiness into a tangible commodity that is non-negotiable.  His philosophy is simple: there is no magic key – most people evade happiness subconsciously as they are caught up in the minutia of life.

Vernon talks with those who are challenged, and together he helps people get the life they never dreamed possible started for them.  Then he keeps the momentum going in that direction.  With support, confidentiality, and no judgment, Vernon opens the door to the possibilities.

He uncovered this vocation when as an adult he finally – after a traumatic childhood made him feel broken and invisible – understood the value of his own happiness and turned his life around.  This perspective is why he is able to help clients from all walks of life find their happi.

Vernon travels the world to tell this story to help people realize that circumstances don’t control the power to claim happiness.  His experience in learning the value of happiness has awakened his passion for helping others find that freedom for themselves.

See your potential.  Move out of crisis mode, and be present.  Stop seeing challenges; find the good.

Discover your happi – and claim it as your own.
