We could all use some inspiration! What a challenging, exhausting journey this has been for all of us over this past year and a half as we continue to do our best to navigate our way through this pandemic and all of the changes we have had to adjust to.  We often feel divided, depleted, and overwhelmed and it seems to take so much more energy to get through all of the tasks and obligations of the day. It is even easier now to procrastinate, “veg-out” in front of the TV, and further, put off our goals and dreams as we are having a difficult time focusing and giving energy to the personal pursuits to which we aspire. However, despite the abundance of excuses we have access to for putting things off right now, RIGHT NOW may actually be the most ideal time to take action, take our energy back (we so desperately need it!), and figure out a way to finally GO FOR IT and commit to harnessing the inspiration we so clearly need to help us make a plan to accomplish those dreams! Let’s talk about how to put the focus on what we CAN control, stop procrastination, and commit to creating the lives we want and deserve. We will discuss simple but effective ways to better honor our time, find more balance in life and break out of mindless routines. Let me help you to live your most authentic life!

We’re excited to announce that Courtney Kelley Bedard will be the keynote speaker for NEDCamp 2021 speaking about the tools you need to get back to building the life you want! 

Courtney has a background in entertainment, acting, and radio, as well as life coaching, motivational speaking, and therapy. The focus of this talk will be to inspire the NEDCamp attendees to live more fully and face their fears – to go for what they have been dreaming about and make it reality.

The NEDCamp organizing team met to determine the feasibility of having an in-person event this year and came to the conclusion that everyone’s health and safety is our top priority. For that reason, we decided that NEDCamp 2021 will not be in-person.

Update - the NEDCamp Organizing team has decided to transition this event to a virtual BoFCon, just like last year. Please read our updated announcement.

NEDCamp 2020 is just a few days away, and we can’t wait to see all of your virtual faces.
