Edmonton’s first DEFYENEUR™ is a big hit!

Posted by on Nov 24, 2012 in Blog | 0 comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – November 12th, 2012 Inspiration hits Edmonton, Alberta EDMONTON, Alberta (November 12th, 2012)  All of us are born with dreams, a vision and goals for our lives.  It’s one thing to merely let them exist as thoughts, but it’s quite another to take action and bring them into being. Upon leaving the field of architecture in 1999, Gerry Visca, now regarded internationally as Canada’s Creative Coach™, has been on a quest to inspire 1 million people to action.  With the release of his recent inspirational movement; DEFYENEURS™ and the launch of Edmonton’s first DEFYENEUR™, Gerry Visca is confident that his life purpose is coming to fruition. On November 1st, 2012 together with Milena Santoro, Angela Kontgen, Canada’s Energy Coach, Gerry Visca officially launched Cheryl Renzenbrink of Edmonton, Alberta as Edmonton’s first official DEFYENEUR™.  The inspiration commenced with Gerry Visca’s transformational Branding Boot Camp® at the Edmonton Petroleum Club where they inspired a cast of Edmonton entrepreneurs to get focused and build their personal brands.  Later that evening, Gerry Visca and Angela Kontgen launched Edmonton’s first Thursday TANK an inspired evening of creative thinking at the Roast Coffeehouse & Wine Bar. Angela Kontgen, contributing author and editor of DEFYENEURS™ The Book Season 1 notes: “The dictionary definition of an entrepreneur is an enterprising individual who builds capital through risk and/or initiative – not really all that compelling, I think. Make way for the age of the ‘DEFYENEUR™’ – an individual inspired and/or ignited with a compelling purpose and a massive clarity about ‘why’ they exist.  These individuals create a movement.  These individuals defy gravity to make a difference in the world and bring their ‘why’ into existence.” The ambitious goal that Gerry Visca declared in 2008 of creatively inspiring 1 million people to action is being taken to new levels with the DEFYENEUR™ movement spreading into Edmonton.  “There are few as deeply committed to surrounding people with such an incredible energy as they do the work, take the risks and defy gravity to bring their dreams to life” notes Angela Kontgen, regarded as Canada’s Energy Coach.  “I am confident that Cheryl Renzenbrink and Milena Santoro will continue the monthly inspiration of Edmonton’s entrepreneurs who are now aware of a new level of greatness within themselves” notes Gerry Visca. “This is what makes Thursday TANKS events so unique and different.  Towards the last Thursday of every month, we bring together a group of amazing entrepreneurs from 6:00 to 9:00pm for an evening of inspired thinking.  I kick off the evening with a 45 minute inspired presentation followed by a series of what I refer to as BIG QUESTIONS take from my 5th book – THINQ, Live the Question.  Each...

Welcome To Alberta

Posted by on Nov 18, 2012 in Blog | 0 comments

We are very proud to be able to live, work and play in the Province of Alberta and two amazing cities such as Edmonton and Calgary. We are often asked why Alberta? Well, for many reasons but most important to share are the People, Places and Experiences. Alberta people, are warm, hospitable and authentic. Alberta places, we have so many places to see and go, you’ll be swept away by what we have to offer. Alberta experiences, you will leave a changed person. As Travel Alberta puts it “Goosebump moments are personal and therefore different for everyone. Some find them while enjoying the thrills of whitewater rafting; for some it’s the moment when you enjoy the first bite of freshly baked pie in a small town diner; and for others it’s finding them in the solitude and relaxation of a spa. Some will find Alberta goosebump moments with family, taking advantage of our beautiful outdoors — spending a sunny summer day horseback riding or hiking through one of Alberta’s provincial parks.” We are very proud of Alberta, undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places on earth, as vast as it is varied in landscape and experiences. Alberta is an exceptional corporate, socialvacation destination you won’t soon forget, filled with unique activities, urban charms and cultural jewels. Located in the heart of western Canada, the province of Alberta is bordered by the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Banff and Jasper, world-renowned resorts in our Canadian Rockies, offer luxurious accommodation and fine dining. Take a day trip south and east into the Canadian Badlands and go back millions of years to the age of the dinosaurs. Or venture north into a land of pristine lakes, backcountry lodges, and trophy fishing. Check out the things to do, places to go on the Travel Alberta website, click here for more...
