who am i & why do i exist?
My mission in life is to help good people succeed. I will support, ideate and work ceaselessly to help those doing good for this world. Those who treat all beings respectfully as equals and who see and implement solutions, not just call out problems.
My name is Katy, known to my friends as happykaty and I am delighted to make your acquaintance. I am a Montrealer who loves her city passionately. I am a people person energized by being in good company while exploring ideas where diverging opinions are free to run amuck. A good glass of wine is also very handy and appreciated in these joyful moments.
A product management & biz intel ninja by day, head curator and license holder of TEDxMontreal by night. I have the privilege of working with a talented team that unearths little known innovations in our city. We get to weave into the heart of Montreal’s niches to find unique homegrown ideas that we can propel onto the TEDx world stage. We firmly believe that a local idea can have a positive global impact.
Like many before me, travel is a cornerstone of my existence. I am fuelled by new experiences and love to explore the pale blue dot that we call our home. I am very fortunate to have traveled to over 20 countries so far and plan on continuing this love well into my old age as long as my legs and health permit me.
This blog is my opportunity to share the many lessons I have learned and reflections I have had in my personal quest to unlock happiness from within. My goal is to be of be service by presenting new perspectives that challenge paradigms or at least makes one think about the things we often take for granted. I hope that my ideas will help unlock your mind and connect you to your personal inner bliss. Changing our thought patterns through awareness is a powerful ally in discovering the small things that bring us great joy. I hope to help you experience more of those ephemeral moments and thus facilitate more joy in your life. I invite you to converse with me in this safe space, to challenge and evolve my thoughts. My only rule is that we always engage in a respectful and creative manner.
So enough with the blah, blah – let’s unlock happy together! On our marks, get set, go!
