Mission Breakfast: Thursday, October 20
This Year's Keynote Speaker: Anna Maria Tremonti
Join us in the Kenneth C. Rowe Hall at Pier 21, Halifax, for a full catered breakfast and to hear from our keynote speaker, Anna Maria Tremonti.
Until very recently, listeners from around the world were privileged to listen to Anna Maria Tremonti’s compelling interviews each & every day on Canada’s most popular radio program, "The Current". She has the gift of tackling everything from the politics of the day, to the changes that affect our society, to the stories of individuals whose personal journeys and traumas affect us all.
Without a doubt, every dedicated listener has been consistently moved and inspired by Anna Maria’s genuine approach to interviewing.
Welcome to Paradise
As one of Canada’s most respected journalists, Anna Maria Tremonti has a reputation for being fearless and hard-hitting. She’s reported from some of the world’s most dangerous conflict zones, but none were as immediately threatening as her life at home. Based on her CBC podcast, Welcome to Paradise, Anna Maria Tremonti opens up about a long-held secret — that she was once married to a man who abused her. She tells us about confronting that past and how it shaped her career as a journalist.
The result is a profoundly intimate portrait of a powerful woman confronting the source of tremendous pain and trauma and, remarkably, freeing herself from a life-long sense of shame.
