Live from The Building Champions Experience – Day 1

Hello from The Building Champions Experience (BCE) at Sunriver Resort! We are spending the next four days in beautiful, clear, and crisp Central Oregon. This is our 9th annual event and we are honored to be joined by over 200 business professionals from more than 5 countries. Over the next few days, we will provide attendees with time and space to reflect, effective tools and strategies to plan, and opportunities and activities to meaningfully connect with other business professionals. Our blog this week will share some of the powerful takeaways from The Building Champions Experience that will help you to live and lead more intentionally.

 

Our CEO and founder, Daniel Harkavy, kicked off the first session by encouraging attendees to make the most of The Experience by confronting the pace in which they have been running. Themes of his inspiring opening remarks included:

— Social media and the pace of life today make it easy to be distracted from our priorities.

— We need to get back into the conversations that matter.

— If we don’t set boundaries and rules, we are going to end up someplace we don’t want to be.

— Daniel shared a quote from Mark Batterson, “A change of pace + a change of place = a change of perspective.”

— By getting away to a new place with a new pace this week, we have the opportunity to get a new perspective.

— His desire this week is to see transformation in the lives of attendees. We hear incredible stories every year.

 

The evening wrapped up with attendees splitting off into small groups led by Building Champions coaches. They connected by serving together to create care packages for children in foster care. The small groups will meet together daily throughout the rest of the event.

Tomorrow is the day our attendees will create their Life Plans – stay tuned for more details! By subscribing to this blog, you will receive live updates highlighting the events of each day.
