The Code for the Next Wave

June 24th | 12:00pm 

Shaun Tomson – Author, Entrepreneur & Former World Surfing Champion

Carla Tomson – Entrepreneur & Design Marketing Specialist

“If you don’t paddle for the wave, you’ll never catch it.” -Shaun Tomson

Companies like Gilead, Google, Disney and Patagonia have all benefited from Shaun’s keynote presentation, a powerful process to activate the power of purpose to catch the next wave. We know the ARA network will welcome an opportunity to hear from Shaun and his wife Carla during this one-of-a-kind presentation they’re planning just for us. Even as we start to re-enter the workplace over the coming weeks and months, many are still feeling overwhelmed, disconnected and less productive. In this one-hour virtual, interactive session, Shaun and Carla will talk about how staying engaged with your team and your organization’s core purpose can keep you focused and motivated with a mission of a shared purpose in these uncertain times. Each participant will be guided through the process of writing your own 12-line Code, a commitment to (re)awaken purpose, (re)connect and empower others with heart, courage and presence, with each line beginning with “I will.” We’ll share our statements via the Zoom chat and create a spirit of emotional contagion to inspire and uplift – something we all could benefit from right now.
