An upcoming presentation aimed at women in the city and county of Wetaskiwin, Pigeon Lake and Millet may very well provide the motivation for them to live more deeply, honestly and passionately.

“The Power of an UNSTOPPABLE Woman” is a day of learning and fun, including a fashion show, vendors and much more. But the highlight of the day will be a seminar in the afternoon by professional speaker and kinesiologist Dr. Rose Backman. Backman has over 20 years of experience in seminars.

What is the message she wants to get across to women? “You have to stand up for who you are, what you believe in and you have to have a voice,” she said by phone from her B.C. office Mar. 17.

Backman said all women have their own belief systems, and depending on personality type some people tend to overwhelm others; some are more the peacemaker type, waiting until it’s safe to have a voice. But it’s very possible for the less assertive women to find a voice.

Backman, as a kinesiologist, said a woman’s body can be read and tells everything. At the seminar, she’s going to be reading the core belief systems women have around three main issues: money, fitness and relationships.

She noted that, growing up on a farm in Saskatchewan, she likes coming to smaller areas to talk to women who she understands. “I feel like I’m at home,” said Backman. “Farm people are more real.”

Backman has been in business for 28 years and been speaking for about 25. She’s been giving the “UNSTOPPABLE Woman” seminar for 20 years.

What would she like to hear women say after they leave her seminar?

“I never knew how amazing I was a woman,” said Backman. “I never knew how much power I had to be heard.”

Organizers have also booked a high-profile MC for the event. CTV Edmonton producer and writer Maria Orydzuk is also familiar with guest speaker Dr. Backman. There will also be a fashion show, vendor, luncheon, door prizes and a few other surprises as well.

The event runs Sunday, April 2 at the Royal Executive Inn in Leduc. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Advance tickets are $39.95, but past Mar. 20 price is $54.95. Tickets are available online at www.unstoppable-woman-leduc.eventbrite.ca.
