No matter who you are, you will face obstacles and problems. Perhaps you have fallen into a rough patch in your life. Perhaps you have a goal, but it seems like you cannot make progress. Either way, the problems that lay between you and where you want to be can seem insurmountable, which is why it is important that we all receive a dose of inspiration in our lives. Moving And Other Matters (MAOM), inspirational leaders of Cheshire, will be sponsoring their first annual Driving Forward Seminar to do just that.
The Seminar will take place on July 14th and 21st, back to back Sundays, and is designed to be suitable for people from all walks of life. Each runs from 4:00 pm to 7:30 pm. The first will be held at CoCo Keys in Waterbury, CT, and will feature Melissa Flynn, founder of MAOM, and guest speaker Ken Brown, an educator and advocate for justice and human rights. The guest speaker of the second, held at the Omni Hotel in New Haven, CT, will be Walt Hampton, motivational speaker and leadership trainer, whose goal is to help people achieve lives that are both successful and meaningful. Will Dunlop, writing & editorial intern of MAOM, will act as MC at both.
The talks of all the speakers are intended to inspire people to overcome the obstacles in their life. Each speaker will share meaningful insights into what gets in our way and how we can deal with these issues. The seminar will also feature vendor tables, and attendees may find it a good place to network, a truly multi-layered experience. Melissa Flynn has designed this seminar to embody her belief that “it is never too late to get your life back on track” and as a place to bring people together.
We hope you will all join us for a night of inspiration and connecting with people. And if that’s not enough, there will be a raffle at the end of the seminar, the prizes being a Flat screen TV and a BluRay player. You must be present to claim the prize.

A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS WILL GO TO FUNDING THE PEORA TYSON CANCER RESEARCH SCHOLARSHIP FUND, (established to help a deserving student study oncology) in honor of Melissa’s mother, who died of cancer on Feb 28, 1996.
Melissa also started this fund because she studied science in college (Molecular and Cell Biology), and she always felt that our country needed more women in science and math; Melissa wants to help to encourage that idea.
