About Soulfront

People. Ideas. Passion

 

The Soulfront community brings people, ideas, and passion together to create a space for introspection and exploration of character. Many of us get to a certain stage in life and start to wonder where we are headed. What’s the point? Why are you doing what you do? Maybe you’re starting to ask these questions as you finish school, or perhaps they’ve floated up because you’ve noticed your first gray hairs. Either way, the urge to live with passion can take you on an important personal journey that breathes life into your soul. Soulfront is a connector for creative, passionate people focused on making a difference in their businesses, the communities, and individual lives.

How it’s done?

We bring together like-minded leaders, artists, organizers and entrepreneurs to inspire, learn and share.

What do we do?

Soulfront offers events, podcasts, blogs and workshops to learn from people who do what they love, so they can love what they do, everyday.

Blog & Podcasts

When you sign up for Soulfront we ask you three questions. What is your passion? Who would you like us to interview? What one question do we need to ask? Then we connect with inspiring people to hear their stories. How did they fail? Why did they continue to pursue their passion? What is their definition of success? And most importantly, how did they create the amazing lives they have today?

At Soulfront we are on a mission to interview people of interest with a passion to make significant change in business, in the community, and in their own lives. Our interviews are conversational, light-hearted, and fun. We look for the person behind the passion to understand what it takes to be significant. All interviews are published online through blog posts and podcasts.

Finding your passion is a process that continues throughout life. Soulfront workshops and one-on-one sessions help you recognize your skills, set goals, and maximize your potential. We pinpoint elements that will enhance your prospects, raise your confidence, and lead you to a more satisfying, higher quality of life.

If you would like a personalized workshop or one-on-one session to ignite your personal, professional, and business development, look no further. Simply email us at contactus@soulfront.ca.

Testimonials

Great connections!

I appreciated the opportunity to process the information in the world cafe and speed dating. That made a huge difference in doing something with the ideas and knowledge that were emerging. I also liked the networking that occurred – it was very powerful as a connections event.

Time flies when you are having fun!

I liked the format of the conference. The idea of break out sessions to talk about what was learned in the morning was excellent. Great finding the time to debrief and reflect. The presenters covered the entire spectrum and they were all totally different. The event went by very quickly and I connected with some awesome people.

Great speakers!

Not only did the speaker talk from a business perspective with the challenges she faced, she brought them alive with who she is and expressed the realness of humanity. Her perseverance was inspiring!

A grounding experience

Very personable and very powerful story. An excellent example of how listening to people is so important, and with out even realizing it, lives are changed. The speaker sharing her story illuminated the importance of listening to develop trust for a community to thrive. She speaks from her heart and her message resonates. Take time, be patient and listen.
