Pernille Spiers-Lopez, former CEO of IKEA North America, and later Global HR manager for over 130,000 employees, comes to The Academi of Life to share how we can create the life we really want to lead --- a life that matters. Are you tired of the way you are living your life? Are you looking to get the spirit of adventure and satisfaction back into your daily life? If the answer is yes, then are you brave enough to do something about it? Pernille Spiers-Lopez knows how to reclaim your life. She did it. Removed from her family, friends, her children, and her own sense of self, as she climbed the corporate ladder to success, she knew something had to change. So she developed a toolbox to design the life she really wanted to live. Pernille also penned a book Design Your Life: A Guide For Creating Your Best Self about her journey of personal struggle and triumph. Join us as Pernille shares tools that helped her take charge of her life, so that she could live the life she had imagined. She will also share how you can become a life designer by making conscious choices and real changes. YOU WILL LEARN What it really means to live a ‘successful’ life. How to embrace imperfection and failures. How to be your best so you can bring that wisdom to others. How to find the courage to stand for who you are in good times and bad. The class is limited to 25 attendees. Register early. 'Don’t spend your whole life searching for the right job, make it the most important job to design the right life.' Pernille Spiers-Lopez
