The first Winspiration Day conference was held in Germany in 2003 by Wolfgang Sonnenburg, a very successful businessperson. Wolfgang was convinced there was more to life, and that the world would be a better place if each person gave themselves the opportunity to truly maximize their own talents. In early 2016, Wolfgang asked his friend, Bob Proctor of the Proctor Gallagher Institute, to reach out to his global network to turn Winspiration Day into a global event.
One of the first people to respond to the call from the international inspirational icon was Doris Orr. Doris wanted Vancouver to be part of this global movement which has been inspiring communities across the globe to follow their dreams.
