There are a lot of things in this world to bring us down — debt, family issues, poor health, etc.

But The Power of Positive, hosted by area resident Carol Ploen-Hosegood of Happy Monkey Club, is an event that focuses on how to move past the negative and teach women and teen girls to be positive leaders in their own lives and those of those around them.

The Power of Positive is a one-day interactive conference designed to motivate, inspire and empower women and teens to lead positive, balanced, happy lives while giving back to the community.  

"I wanted to create an event that encouraged women to incorporate positive behaviors into their life on a daily basis," Ploen-Hosegood says.

Happy Monkey Club is a Winnipeg-based  organization whose mission is to create a community of women who share the common goal of leading a positive life while giving back to their community.

"The HMC is built on five pillars — be positive, eat healthy, live active, have fun and give back and the Power of Positive event takes into account all of these areas," Carol said.

The day will include a variety of speakers, workshops and fun interactive events.

Certified life coach Patti Phillips will host Play to Your Strengths, which takes women through a four-step process to determine their ‘play personalities’ while Jodi Lee, a registered holistic nutritionist, will teach women how to Play with Your Food.

"Our key note speaker is Deru Latimer, who will be talking about Play is Life and how being playful shapes your brain, energizes your body, and invigorates your soul," Ploen-Hosegood says.

Targeting three different age groups  — junior high students, high school students, and women— on three consecutive days, The Power of Positive will show all in attendance ways to be an engaged, inspired, and motivated person, mother, daughter, and member of the community.  

The junior high event will be held on Oct. 24; high school on Oct. 25 and the women’s event on Oct. 26.

Ploen-Hosegood did divulge that attendees of the Power of Positive event will be learning a flash mob dance to be performed during half-time at the Pink Weekend Basketball game when the U of W and U of M women’s basketball teams go head-to-head on Oct. 26.
