Believing the mind is more powerful than most people understand, Lee will share ways to better handle stress and achieve dreams through relaxation and mind-focusing techniques.
Zwickel, CEO of CVOA says, “VO-Con
is not “your typical vacation ownership conference.” We will offer a few
activities for attendees including a Whistler Nature Walk, Scenic Valley
Bike Tours, a trip to the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Center and a visit
to the Audain Art Museum. These events are in addition to the regular agenda
of fine programming of industry expert panels and presentations. In addition
to industry education, our goal is to leave plenty of time for networking,
which our members consider the primary benefit of the event.”
