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

Location: Calgary Chamber
Address: 100 6th Ave SW
Date: Wednesday, February 29, 2012 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

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. Would you use it to explore – physically or intellectuality – something you have always wanted to do? Or would you live that extra day like it was your last day – reaching out to make the world a better place?

Join us for another inspiring afternoon of conversations and creativity.
