iF you had an extra day, what would you do?

Nearly every day we hear someone protest their lack of time, so for the first iF series event of 2012, we are exploring the question: iF you had an extra day, how would you use it?

Imagine the possibilities of what you might do, or achieve. How many of us would spend it at home, with friends or use it to explore – physically or intellectuality – something they have always wanted to do? Or to live that extra day like it was your last day – reaching out to make your world a better place.

We hope you will all join us for what will be another inspiring afternoon of conversations and creativity as a number of prominent people from the Calgary business community explore this question on Wednesday, February 29, from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Calgary Chamber.
